[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;”] I [/dropcap] am no expert. It’s only been by falling on my face and the kindness of mentors around me that I’ve been able to find a better way to love and care for my wife and kids as I should. They need a hero. I’ve decided it’s going to be me.
I take that back. I am an expert. I’m an expert at crashing and burning. When it comes to learning from mistakes, we can either learn from the mistakes of others or we can learn from our own. If you’re reading this post I’m betting that you either know what it is to make a mess of things relationally or you’re smart enough to get ahead of the curve. So let’s do this. Think of me as your personal crash test dummy for being a husband and dad.
As I pull back the curtain to my crash test highlight reels I want you to learn from my high speed nose dives, my slow starts and my blind sides. Learn from me so you don’t have to hit those relational brick walls like I did.
Although I’m a Christian and a pastor, this blog is not meant to be a theological treatise on marriage and parenting. There are many others better apt for that task. While written from a Christian perspective my goal is to shed light on how men can lovingly and practically love and care for their wives and children
My hope is that as I write and you read we’ll walk away with a better understanding as to how to better care and love our families.
Gentlemen, start your engines.
