WHAT KIDS NEED


Today’s kids desperately need Dads who:

. . . play catch, enjoy tea parties or wrestle because the heart of a child is there and they set out to capture it.

. . . laugh till their belly hurts and tears fall from their eyes while secretly creating deep friendships and memories that last a lifetime.

. . . place an out of tune preschool concert or a ten-year-old’s baseball game on life’s agenda because of the infinite worth of those playing.

. . . love at all times, because live is a gift freely given and not a reward for service well done.

. . . listen eye to eye and with both ears even if it means getting on one knee.

. . . admit when they are wrong and work to make things right.

. . . hear about those in need and say, "Let’s do something to help right now!" and set off an uncontrollable wildfire of generosity and kindness.

. . . give the credit to others and empower those they touch to succeed in all that they do.

. . . model love as action, commitment, and truth even when it hurts because they believe God can work miracles in even the hardest heart.

. . . love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind and know that the rest is just details.
