There has been a noticeable change in my audiences over the last 10 years. Instead of a room full of young mommies who want to know how to answer their children’s early questions about sex, I look out on a very healthy mix of moms and dads. This is so encouraging to me!
Dads who show up to a workshop about how to shape their child’s sexual character are also probably going to SHOW UP in other ways…
in conversations that are uncomfortable
in setting boundaries for children they love and want to protect
in helping their children navigate the rough waters of the tween and teen years
in affirming a child’s beautiful mind and character
in leading by sacrificial example
The deep security a child knows as a result of an engaged father is immeasurable. No parent is perfect of course, but I had the blessing of a wonderful Dad, and am married to one, and see these fine men who are raising my grandchildren and grandchildren-to-be, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
The blessing of a faithful father is so important, that God made sure everyone could have one in Him, so that even when our earthly fathers don’t show up….He does.
Happy Father’s Day!
