Happy Father's Day 2015
It has been a GREAT ADVENTURE being a dad! And it still is! It is one of the most challenging things I have ever faced. How can I be the dad and father and role model that my kids need?
I know one thing, it did not come naturally! When Taylor came along, June 16, 1992, I had no idea what I was getting into. Karen had a c-section, so guess who got to change the first poo-poo diaper?
All the while, under the watchful eye and supervision of my wonderful wife, I learned a lot about that first little kid. I learned that they were not as fragile as I thought they were. I learned how much sleep one can be deprived of and still function! I learned that I didn't know ANYTHING!!!
The Power of Influence
My oldest was a girl, but that did not stop me from introducing her to the world of sports. She is a bundle of energy and can-do spirit. She has the determination to tackle anything and if she sets her mind to it, she will accomplish her goal! I am super proud of all that she has done!
I am so thankful for Caleb. He has started his own adventure down the road of gospel music. He is exploring what God has in store for his life and I know that Caleb will do great things as he follows the Lord!
Alli has grown to be a beautiful young lady. I am glad that I was able to be a "Mr. Mom" for her while Karen was working. She loves smiling and having friends. She has the most loving and forgiving spirit. She is awesome!
The real power of influence is that I have had the awesome privilege to lead all three of my children to Jesus! This is the best influence that I know to be. I pray that my children always know how much I love them, but most of all I pray they know how much their Heavenly Father loves them.
