266 Marquess Dennis

Marquess Dennis Sr., the executive director of Birthright Living Legacy. Birthright Living Legacy creates a community for fathers to meet and connect while having a safe place to be a part of their children’s lives. We discuss the history behind the organization, what drives Marquess not only to be a good father to his children, but also to help all fathers, and what children need from both parents to be their best selves.


Key Takeaways

  • God chooses the most unlikely people to show His glory.
  • Choosing, with intention, to be present with you children, even for 10 minutes.
  • When we live out loud and share our testimony we allow others to experience the Father.
  • You’re seen, you’re heard, you’re valuable, & you’re responsible.

By connecting Fathers through community events, improving parent-child relationships through workshops, providing support and counseling to families. We are a fatherhood celebrations and support organization.

Key Quotes

  • 11:16 – “He encouraged me to live out loud because we are not able to fully live in what He has for us if we’re ashamed of what He brought us through. And the words of our testimony is how the captives are set free. And if we are not willing to live out our testimony to say, Hey, this is what happened to me, this is where I was, and these were all the excuses I had to fail. But, but God.”
  • 17:42 – “[Our core beliefs are] you’re seen, you’re heard, you’re valuable, but you’re also responsible. That is the core of what we are. Whether your family unit believes in the hierarchy of God or not, you better believe you are still responsible. The court systems will prove it. The way that the world works will prove it, you are still responsible. And most of the guys want to be the man in charge, they want to be head, they want to say, let’s read this verse where it says submit. And they don’t want to read the verses after that says, Well, you have to submit to because we’re the first wives, God said, we have to submit to Jesus. We have to say He’s coming back for His bride. We are that bride. And if we are not good wives or good stewards of that relationship, how on earth can we expect others to honor it the same?”
