“Servanthood is the way to the top. You will never outgrow serving…the more you have the more you’re required to give.”

“So you’re going to make some sort of mistakes. But fellas, I want you to know for sure you are absolutely dadAWESOME, because I got an awesome dad and I know I’m going to be an awesome dad because I’m a give it my all. Even if we’re going the wrong way, I’m going the wrong way all the way, because I’m doing it because I love my kids and they’re going to know that.”
“when my father walked away, my father in law walked in.”
And you could do that as an awesome dad to just hover. I think that’s the first thing God did over the Earth. He just hovered. Hover over each person your family like, what is kid number one need that I could only uniquely provide them. Because if they need a ride, they could get Uber to provide. They’d give em a ride.

“it’s going to take intentionality and it’s going to take you guarding your heart above all else. For from it flows living water. And this is meant to be an overflow journey, not one of scarcity, but one where you are being filled up daily to be poured out like a reservoir to fill your kids up and your wife and you can do it.

We need these three things these fatherhood principles the pause, the consideration, and we need guidance.

I want to consider and I want to follow God’s will lead God’s guidance.
