God doesn’t expect parents to get everything right. But He expects us to keep trying!

God’s Word clearly indicates that fathers bring power to the parenting relationship.

The Power of Permission

Fathers must recognize and exercise the “Power of Permission,” a vital discipline not only for the child’s development but also for the parents’ peace of mind!

The Power of Presence

Sometimes, a parent needs to set his own lifestyle aside and take advantage of the opportunities we have to spend quality time with our kids.

The Power of Pointing

It’s important to demonstrate to our children how to be, and how things work, and what things are. We always set an example to our children, and we need to explain the world to them — point them in the way they should go.
