    Thanks for the links guys, I'm a single dad to my 6 year old daughter, and I'm trying really hard to get my act together for her and mentoring for when she gets older.

    While this clip is a mother's account of her own realization during parenthood, the same aspects are certainly applied with any father. Someone sent this to me a few months back. Being a dad to a beautiful little girl myself, this really hits home. It's all of those "ordinary days" that sum up the whole in the end. Enjoy every day. Worth the watch:

    All men whether they are fathers of daughter or not should read this book. If you are a husband this can even help you with your wife/wives.

    This is a really good book!! I read when my wife was pregnant with my now 22month old daughter!! I feel so strongly about this book that I buy a copy for every father to be that I know. Getting ready to deliver another book to my brother-in-law as well. I know too many girls/women that have issues that are a direct result of their relationship(s) with their fathers. I never put the two together until reading this book though.

    Fit, athletic and no doubt a strong personality to back it up. A father WOULD be proud!

    Strong is an understatement. I can't complain too much as the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

    I have admitted in the past that I am illiterate. Have I not?

    It was a misuse of the word on my part.

    I did indeed take it as a complement. Thank you!

    I had a suprisingly good Easter in some areas and in other areas I found some sadness.

    My family (spouse and children, brother/sister-in-law and nephews) are in a good place. My son and daughter(s) are becoming a sweeter fruit in my life. My marriage is suprisingly very solid (aside from the typical trivial BS that most engage in) and after 20 years my wife is more attractive than ever. I was able to see how blessed I really am.

    I was also blessed with the honor and privilege of baptizing a man who I lead in one of the studies I lead for our church's Men's Minstries - Men's Fraternity: The Quest for Authentic Manhood

    My in-laws (and respectives), not so much. I see the wreckage that my father-in-law has created (or by the lack of proper action) in the lives of his sons. Let's just say that this will be the last holiday that we will spend in their home. Sadly, I know he was fatherless and that only perpetuates the condition of fatherlessness (absent fathers) as he is clearly clueless of how he should have parented and what is wrong with is family.

    I hope you and yours are blessed with joy and fruitfulness in your lives.
