THANK YOU to Chick-Fil-A Northtown for supporting the Episode 100 live recording party.

  • 9:25 – How do you stay intentional about connecting with your kids? Do you have any resources that have helped you be an intentional dad?
  • 10:55 – Episode 1 of dadAWESOME = We Trust God
  • 13:52 – “Am I adding LIFE to my family or taking away LIFE? Does this ambition, commitment, pursuit, hobby, etc. bring LIFE to my family?”
  • 14:14 – “After 100 weeks of dadAWESOME, I’m at a place where I love being a dad more now than I did 100 weeks ago”
  • 15:32 – “The dadAWESOME journey has been an invitation to dads to double down on the dad-life… double the prayer, double the time, double the love, double the intentionality, double the humility, double the focus.”
  • 16:03 – Crashing kitchen cabinet story
  • 20:26 – “As dads, we are building launch ramps for our kids. We make choices every day to build intentionally with our words, our time, our resources, our prayers, our energy, our marriage. We are choosing to build launch ramps and that’s what intentional dads do. They build launch ramps that shoot their kids further and faster than they could go by themselves. We take what could be average or lame and we make it epic. That’s what we do. That is dadAWESOME.”

  • 26:12 – “Many of us have been living the Dad-Life without the LIFE”
