Good Godly idea's on ways to relate to your kids. Some of the topics I was familiar with, and others I was not. It is a wake up call to all of us Fathers. Don't blink. Because your two year old will be 16 before you know it. Love your kids right now! Amen
I have not seen Courageous yet, but I have heard positive reviews about it and can't wait to get its DVD. Courageous challenges men to be better fathers. The 21-Day Dad's Challenge aims to do the same. Because of their competitive nature, men enjoy challenges. This book offers 3 weeks worth of challenges for dads to develop better relationships with their kids. The challenges were written by well-known Christian men such as Josh McDowell, Jim Daly, Joe White, Jay Payleitner, Randy Alcorn, Tony Dungy, Shaun Alexander, Chip Ingram, Carey Casey (the general editor) and one woman. The 21-Day Dad's Challenge will inspire and equip men to build stronger bonds with their kids while having fun and instilling Godly values in them. I'm excited to be sharing all the practical tips in this book with my husband. It's helpful for moms, too :). Each chapter ends with "Your Challenge" and "Your Plan" (action steps). Some chapters also include a symbol/ code (that works with your smartphone) and a link to a video by Dr. Greg Smalley for bonus help/advice in taking that day's challenge. I really like these videos. You can join other fathers as they take the 21-Day Challenge here. Kids grow up so fast. Please do not take the gift of fatherhood for granted. No matter how old your child is, he/she would be thankful that you intentionally reach out to him/her with love. This resource is a wonderful parenting coach at your fingertips.

Extremely practical strategies and simple applications that hold great weight. The results are noticeable in an extremely short time...and things keep getting better and better. I manage a crew of young men, new husbands and new fathers and I have decided to incorporate this into our weekly Spiritual Development time. We are on Day 2 and the guys are tremendously receptive. Thank you!
