Intentional Fathers

Happy Father's Day!!

The following is a great article I read today about how important it is for us fathers to not just be present - but be INTENTIONAL.

Stepping Up as a Dad

"A few years ago, my son Ben and I had the opportunity to go to a World Series game in St. Louis. It was awesome to see my beloved Cardinals square off against the Detroit Tigers.

The Cards won 5–0 (and went on to win the Series in five games), but the highlight from that evening’s experience was when my friend Chip turned and asked my son, 'How would you describe your dad in one word?' Watching Ben think for a moment, I quietly speculated about what he might say. I was hoping it would be some noble character quality like 'loving' or 'kind' or 'forgiving.'

Instead, my grown son’s one-word conclusion of me was 'intentional.' ”
