Reflections on Christian Fatherhood

What comes to mind when you hear the words Father’s Day? Probably a day of complete peace, deep relaxation, solitude, gratitude, and receiving everything you desire. Most dads reading this would only have two words for me: “Yeah right!”

Well, OK, so most dads still have their responsibilities, children to take care of, and other duties. I think it’s tragic that many towns have had the audacity to put Little League baseball games and other sporting events on Father’s Day, thus treating it like just another day and nothing truly important.

But, fatherhood is important, very important! It is a cornerstone of our society; it can change the world, and it’s magnitude needs to be restored.  To continue reading this post for fathers and future fathers, please click here to link to my article on CatholicMatch.

    The father’s role is so critical in the foundation and future lives or our kids. We’ve been reading a great new, actually renewed book, I think all dads with your understanding would enjoy. Great for all dads of daughters. We’re loving it, so I have to share… It’s called “She Calls Me Daddy: 7 Things You Need to Know About Building a Complete Daughter,” by Robert Wolgemuth. Originally released in the 90s, it was a best seller. His girls are grown up and give their own input along with their husbands who are daddies to girls. I understand 40% of the book is new material. It’s so unique in this way. Robert puts the anxieties of Daddy raising his girl(s) to rest, guiding you through challenges and good times – protecting, conversation, affection, discipline, laughter, faith, conduct. So great for helping daddies learn to lead, love and cherish. I highly recommend it!
