Thanks for joining me for the special Father’s Day episode of Heart Lessons. Today you’ll be hearing from three of my favorite dads – my dad Pete, my father-in-law Dave, and my husband Josh. These men are all wonderful and deeply in tune with the Lord’s leading in their lives and in their fatherhood journeys. I’m so grateful to have them in my life, influencing me and influencing my kids. They speak much truth about fatherhood – how it changed them and motivated them to be better men. They offer great advice to new dads and of course, share the heart lessons that carry them through their own stage of being a dad. Happy Father’s Day to these wonderful guys … I love you all <3
Pete: Life doesn’t always work out the way you want, God’s ways are not always our ways.
Dave: Fatherhood is the best thing and you must negotiate your relationship with your children in loving ways.
Josh: Your kids are always watching what you do so be the example you should be.
Advice to new dads:
Pete: Watch what you say and do because little eyes are always watching and always follow through when you say you’re going to do something.
Dave: Relationships are negotiated in loving ways, there is no formula. You must aim to have your children’s hearts.
Josh: Don’t think you have it all figured out in the beginning; be flexible and don’t make up your mind about the way things should be. Essentially, don’t get stuck in a parenting rut.
