Dear Dads,

We love that you’re smart and really good at fixing stuff. Actually, it’s pretty awesome when you come to the rescue and change our flat tire, help us move into our first dorm, or teach us to drive…well, maybe not that one…because that’s just plain awful on e...

“You want to be the one on the court the whole game, not just at halftime.” Words from my father as he was encouraging me to try out for basketball. I thought to myself, “That sounds like a great idea.” I declined the pom-pom squad position and the next day he taught m...

My dad passed away in the early ’80s but I still have memories of him. Most are good ones that make me smile, if not chuckle. My pops was a tall, slender, brown-skinned man with a small waistline, a little round derriere, broad shoulders and a smile that lit up the roo...

I grew up without my dad in my life, so often I feel like I am learning on the fly. I tend to question myself a lot, wondering if I am doing things right. I have had some amazing people in my life to help guide and direct me, but I have found the greatest teacher of al...

A father can be a forever friend, especially to a girl who is wildly crazy about him.  The love of a good father brings security and satisfaction.  It teaches a child that an even greater Father loves them and can be trusted with their very soul.  I know, because I had...

As Father’s Day approaches, it’s a great time to reflect on special memories with my dad. I’m blessed to still have my dad, but age is catching up with him, and I know our time together is short-lived. So I intend to enjoy him while I can, making the most of memories p...

“Happy Father’s Day” to all of the fathers! You have poured into lives of your own children, step-children, grand-children, nieces, nephews, cousins, church youth, and even children in the community – you have fathered someone.  The heart of a true father really has no...
