About 5 miles west of Childress is a prison that houses 1200 men. National statistics say, “85% of those sitting in prison today grew up in a fatherless home,” that just goes to show you the powerful roll fathers play in the lives of their children.
God has blessed me with four incredible boys. As their father I want to be proactive in raising them. They are one of the biggest ministries in my life right now. I’d rather fail as a minister, a missionary or a businessman, than fail at fatherhood.
“Do you wanna have a catch?”
I was thinking this weekend about how much I enjoy being a dad and how much I enjoy hearing my boys say certain things to me. It wasn’t long until I had a list of things I love to hear my children say. So here are the top 10 things I love to hear my children say…
10. Glad you’re home Dad.
9. Wanna do something?
8. Can you cook something on the grill for supper?
7. Can I ask you something?
6. Can you help me?
5. I missed you.
4. You are a good dad.
3. Do you wanna have a catch? (I still cannot watch this video without getting choked up!)
2. Thanks, Dad.
1. I love you, Dad.
What do you like to hear your kids say to you?
