Fatherhood Through Their Eyes

A few years ago my oldest son defined what Fatherhood looked like to him after 7 years with me:

  • Fun
  • Awesome
  • Tall
  • Holy
  • Eats Alot
  • Really Stinky
  • Smart

He knows me pretty good! And I’m trying to live up to most of this list. But being aware of what’s seen through their eyes is so important as a Dad. They learn so much from what they see, and smell I guess. My to do list for my boys: Be intentional, listen, point them to God’s Word, accumulate experience & memories. And remember, he/she may be Just Like You.

How would your son or daughter define Fatherhood by what she sees in you?
