Things Our Fathers Taught Us
I can recall many Father’s Days growing up when my family stopped to thank my dad for all that he meant to us. Now, as a dad of three, I enjoy the privilege of being on the receiving end of such thanks. But what this day has become for me is less about being praised, but rather a reminder of how incredibly lucky I am to play this role and to have a hand in cheering on, helping, guiding, supporting, correcting, and occasionally creating lasting memories for my three girls. It’s a full day of fuel for my dad fire.
I often wonder—What will my young kids remember, when they come of age, about what their dad taught them? It’s a simple but powerful question that helps me decide how I want to spend each of my days with them.
With that in mind, our team wanted to share some of the lessons our father figures have taught us and celebrate the important men in our lives and the incredible impact they’ve made.
