Impart The Blessings of God to your Children

Father or Friend?

Father or Friend?

Jul 29, 2014

One of the recurring struggles I have as a father is the battle over doing what is right vs. doing what is easy when it comes to my children. Sometimes with all that is going on in our lives, it would SEEM to be much easier just to say “okay”,  or give in to a “questionable” request, to say “yes” when you want to say “no”, or vice versa. Our world is crazier...

Is Father’s Day Becoming Just Another Day?

Jun 12, 2013

The lack of a real father in our homes continues to grow. The numbers are staggering. • 43% of US children live without their father [US Department of Census] • 90% of homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes. [US Bureau of the Census] • 80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes. • 71% of pregnant teenagers lack a...

Are you making the most of this Father’s Day?

Jun 5, 2013

Father’s Day is fast approaching next week. What are your plans? As for me, I’m going to spend as much time as possible with my children and enjoy every second of it. I’m also going to spend time with my step father (I don’t like calling him that) and let him know how much I love and appreciate him for everything he has done for me and my family. My biological...

All I want For Christmas…is a Father

All I want For Christmas…is a Father

Dec 26, 2012

A survey completed in Britain recently showed one of the top ten things children wanted for Christmas was, of all things…a father. If you think children aren’t paying attention you’re wrong. They know the importance of a father and his blessing…instinctively. How? It’s the way God made us! We are wired to NEED that love, acceptance, forgiveness, and...

Best Christmas Gift Ever!

Dec 11, 2012

As we quickly approach Christmas I am reminded of all the different gifts that have been exchanged over the years. Specifically I am thinking of all of the gifts my wife and I have given to our children. The range of gifts spans the financial spectrum of expensive to thrifty. They were all appreciated and used for their intended purpose for the most part. But,...

A Poem To Honor My Mama

A Poem To Honor My Mama

Mar 13, 2012

My mom was my hero. She truly was “Jesus with skin on” to literarily hundreds of people through her life. I wrote a poem to honor her that I had planned to read at her memorial service. I could hardly get through the first few lines before breaking into tears. Thankfully, my son Ryan stepped in and saved the day by agreeing to read it to our family...

Is President Obama living under a curse?!

Is President Obama living under a curse?!

Oct 15, 2011

Think a father’s blessing isn’t that important? Just ask a man who was abandoned by not just one father but two, President Obama. It is a fact that our President was abandoned by his father as an infant and by his stepfather at age 10. What affect does this have on our President? Simply put, he could be living under a curse. Remember, what’s the opposite...

Why is a Father’s Blessing So Important?

Why is a Father’s Blessing So Important?

Sep 23, 2011

Words matter. That fact is words are powerful. Whoever taught us “sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never harm me”, lied. The Bible teaches us “death and life are in the power of the tongue”. We have the power to speak life into people and we have the power to speak death as well. I’d say that’s pretty powerful! When God spoke, the heavens...

What if Abraham took Isaacs’ cell phone away?

What if Abraham took Isaacs’ cell phone away?

Aug 6, 2011

The Heavenly Father has set the example and precedent for the father’s blessing. The patriarchs of the Old Testament, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob clearly understood the power of the father’s blessing AND practiced it! Why did we stop practicing this? Where in history did the trail go stale? Who knows? It’s hard to say for sure. What I do know is that with...

THE FATHER’S BLESSING Introduction “What is a Father’s Blessing?” You may be asking yourself. Where did it come from? Is it Biblical? Or is it just something that a well-meaning Christian leader made up or interpreted in the last few years? The truth is, the history of the Father’s Blessing extends back to our Heavenly Father, who set the precedence for it. For...

[styled_table][/styled_table] Good morning, I received a father’s blessing in 1992 at a FGBMFI regional convention in Oklahoma City. John Schmook stood in for my father who had passed away in 1976. My father was a very private person and didn’t talk about his past. He was not a Christian, but a man of integrity. When my family visited my parents for...

I imagine this Fathers Day was the best ever for this dad who was able to pronounce a blessing over his daughter AND participate in her water babtism AT THE SAME TIME. Talk about a back to back DOUBLE whammy! I want to thank Pastor Barry Dehler for sending this in. Great idea on getting the dad involved! [divider type=”image”] [divider...

He Didn’t Have To Be.

I want to take a moment to honor some of the unsung heroes in the world today, “Step” Fathers. Somehow they seem to get cast in some unfavorable light when we hear about them on TV or in movies. But in reality, many of them are heroes. I know mine is. I want to declare today to all of the men who have stepped up and stepped in to raise a family and to care for...

Kirk is an awesome man of God, a successful entrepreneur, and good friend. I have learned over time that Kirk, like many of us, did not have a good relationship with his father growing up and to this day. Knowing...

[divider type=”image”] I think it’s interesting how our teenage children have a different view of us dads than we do of ourselves. I know why I had trouble staying closer than ten feet from my daughter at the movies last night. I kept thinking “how do I keep slipping away from her” when I suddenly realized SHE’S TRYING TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM ME AS...

Father’s Day is June 19th and approaching quickly! Are you ready? My good friend Bryan Sorensen sure was last year when he gathered all his children and their spouses for an announcement of sorts.
