• “My dad worked nights and I always wanted him to go on all my field trips and come to all my awards assemblies and games, he was ALWAYS there. He would many times have only a few hours of sleep just to be there for me. “ -Daughter

  • “I try to take interest in whatever my kids like to do. Recently started playing Fornite because my 12 year old likes to play it. Sometimes it’s hard not gonna lie because my selfish ways have their own personal agenda and that’s when I myself or my wife has to remind me that they are only kids for a short while and we will never get this time back. So work and my own agenda and anything else gets superseded by spending quality time with my kids.” -Dad

  • “My father shared his life lessons, to not judge, don’t react, and to love like Jesus. Him choosing to let the Lord be center of his life, making the effort to overcome, and allowing the transformation to happen in him showed me not only that I to can change but there are good men in the world. Only through following Jesus.” -Daughter

  • “My daughter and I do a drawing contest, it gives us time to talk about our day or week. Also her drawings tell a lot of things that are going on on her mind.” -Dad

  • “My dad has never gave up on me. That has meant everything to me. He's not just my dad he's my best friend.” -Son

  • “For me- it was my step father that took me in as in own since I was a little girl. He treated me better than my real father could at the time. He fed me, took care of me, and truly challenged me into loving the Lord the way he did. He never once did anything that made me feel as if I wasn’t his actual daughter.” -Daughter

  • “I sing loud and bad, but I sing to her. I also do her hair which is a huge task but it’s our time together.” -Dad

  • “I have a weird relationship with my dad ever since my parents got divorced. I never felt really loved because he never called me or checked up on me. I prefer not to go into any other details. But recently I had my biggest prayer answered and he said I love you and that he’s sorry for anything he’s ever done. Ever since my life has been a bit better.” -Daughter

  • “He always made time for me! I look back now and realize he was probably exhausted because he worked so hard for us, but he still made time to dance with me on his feet (or him on his knees!), watch skating with me, teach me softball, or let me "fix" his hair! As I got older, he took me out on dates, taught me how to check my car, and still takes interest in what I enjoy.” -Daughter

  • “My dad unselfishly loving my mother was the best example of the type of man I should wait for. The way he talked about her, treated her, and supported her gave me the best example as to what I should accept in a spouse and nothing less.” -Daughter

  • “I am convinced that the single greatest thing my dad did for me was love us enough to break a hideous cycle of physical violence in the home.” -Daughter

  • “My dad took the time to listen to my opinions on issues then we would have friendly debate on an adult level. He never made me feel stupid for my position but taught me how to defend it.” -Daughter

  • “My dad ALWAYS showed unconditional love and patience toward me growing up. There was never anger, only love and compassion.” -Daughter
