Words from a Father

Husband of One, Father of Four

Tag: family

484. Comfortable Distance

Impropriety can masquerade in friendly clothes. Be friendly to your spouse’s friends, but keep a safe, appropriate distance, and always tell your spouse of any advances by another. It may feel awkward for a moment, but it is never something to hide. Your loyalty is always first to your spouse.

483. Keep Learning

Daughter, get as much education as you can. If anything ever happens to your husband, life will be up to you. Education is not your way out, it is your way forward.

Son, get as much education as you can. It is your job to provide the most security possible for your family. It is also your responsibility to encourage your wife to continue her education in case anything happens to you.

No excuses: Take care of her as well as you can while you are here; make sure she can take care of herself if you are gone.

This is modern-day chivalry. This is one way to honor your family.

466. Without Reservation

Love and serve your spouse without reservation. Anything less will be sensed and resented.

458. Anti-theist Rage

It is hypocritical for an anti-theist to rage about God commanding slaughter at a few defined instances in the Bible, yet they do not rage against the perpetual daily slaughter of innocent children by abortion.

457. Explain Pro-choice

A difficult moment for a pro-choice advocate comes when they try to explain to an eight year old exactly what it is they are supporting.

453. Don’t Ask

Son, don’t ask a woman if she is pregnant, ask your wife if she is.

449. Shows Parents Will Enjoy

Young kids like to watch shows, and they really like it when you watch with them. Pick ones you think are witty or interesting so you won’t be bored out of your mind. Try these:

  • Word Girl
  • Ruff Ruffman
  • Signing Time (surprisingly good music for a kid’s show)
  • Veggie Tales
  • Garfield and Friends (the original is funnier than the computer animated one)
  • Phineas and Ferb

444. Logical Life

If a scientist found one single cell on a neighboring planet, they would declare that they had found life.

We should celebrate all the same when we recognize the greater and more certain life growing within a pregnant woman.

This is not open to debate: Pregnancy is life, abortion is death. Science is not silent on this matter, and anyone trying to make the issue subjective or anything less than clear-cut is simply not dealing with the overwhelming facts.

436. Full Life

The way to a full life is to spend it on the memorable and the eternal.

435. Kids’ Treasure

Treasure the now. Your kids sure do.
