Our Vision and Prayer
FAMILY – I want to be famous in my home. My family comes first. My wife and daughters have strongly encouraged and celebrated this dadAWESOME journey. If I ever drift towards leading dadAWESOME at the expense of my family/fathering/marriage, I’ll walk away immediately. I give my wife and daughters 100% pause power. If they tell me to pause dadAWESOME to focus more on being a dad, I’ll do it (and my close friends/brothers will hold me accountable to this).
TEAM – Let’s build this together. We currently have a small scrappy team. Our vision and prayer is to build our dadAWESOME team to over 10 dads by Father’s Day 2019. If you’d like to chat about joining our volunteer team of writers, creatives, audio engineers, web gurus, event coordinators and all around awesome people, please let us know. The pay isn’t great, but the benefits are outstanding 🙂
BROTHERHOOD – We fight passionately against isolation. The resources created by dadAWESOME will always encourage and challenge dads to pursue authentic brotherhood with other men. Breakthroughs, healing, miracles, strength and freedom come from brotherhood and accountability. Don’t do this dad journey alone.
TIME – Every episode of dadAWESOME has touched on the theme of investing time with our kids. We must log hours together. This dad life requires our TIME. Are you a 4 hr/day dad? Or a 2 hr/day dad? The perceived outcomes of this difference might seem small this week or this month or this year. Over the 18 years that we have raising our kids before they launch, the difference between a 2 hr/day dad and a 4 hr/day dad is 13,000 hours. We’ve got 168 hours in the week. How many of those hours will be spent in close proximity connecting with, playing with and loving our kids?
GIVE – 1 in every 4 children live in a home without a dad (link for more fatherlessness statistics). Let this soak in for a moment. Our God-sized prayer for this first year of dadAWESOME is to give $10,000 away towards the cause of these fatherless kids. We’re praying for 100 dads giving $10/month ($120 for the year). We’ll give the first $10k to organizations serving the fatherless and then the other $2k will be used for promotion, subscriptions, equipment, etc. Do you want to be one of our 100 dads who partners through giving towards this goal – Here’s a GIVING Interest Form.
