Day 511 ~ Any Man Can be a Father... (XXIV)

"And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord." (Ephesians 6:4) 
You're moving toward the home stretch of your 30-day challenge! Just a reminder of what you've committed: 
  • You can't say anything negative about your husband . . . to your husband . . . or to anyone else, about your husband.
  • Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband . . . to your husband . . . and to someone else, about your husband!

Children can be quite a challenge to the marriage relationship. A wise wife will support her husband's leadership in the home as much as possible, and will praise him for his fathering skills. Negativity makes a man feel like a failure, and may make him to want to give up.
Does your husband discipline your children wisely? Does he show them love and encourage them? Does he take an interest in their activities and dreams? Does he spend time with them? Does he take part in developing their character? Praise him for these important life skills.
If you don't have children—is your husband positive and encouraging around other people's children? Let him know that you have noticed. If your husband does not experience positive relationships with children, you will need to figure out why. Perhaps he had negative experiences as a child with his own parents, and needs to learn how to respond. Perhaps you can lovingly and patiently show him how to parent—while still maintaining his authority in the home. 
Day 24 ! . . .
I'm going to keep this simple and not let it get too wordy.  

What a great topic!  

Dean, by all means, is a fabulous father!!  And, he is even a better step-father!!! 

Since my husband has been a part of my life he has always identified with my sons.  Better yet, he has always known what to say to me in regards to them.

Even before Calley was born, Dean has shown me what a wonderful insight he has with children.

Today he continues to be a terrific dad.  He is understanding, patient and very, very loving!  

The best part of it all is that he is just as much as a [BIG] kid as they are.

I could not have asked for a better father to my children if I had not wished him up myself!! 

[here's to you finding your... ]
