Being a Dad—It’s Hard Work: June 15 Newsletter

Newsletter / Produced by The High Calling

Good old Dad. He’ll be happy this Sunday for Father’s Day even if you buy him another tie and a pair of socks. Right?

Some of us struggle with our relationships with our dads. Others owe much more to our fathers than we can ever make up for with a tie and socks. In this newsletter we’ll hear from a woman whose father put family first, and a man grateful to his dad for walking the walk of faith and not just talking the talk. And we’ll let the Psalms remind us that being a parent is terribly hard and important work.

If you find relating to your father hard, remember you can always speak to your Heavenly Father who loves you unconditionally. And if you get along with Dad? Please, go find him something other than a tie.
