I Don't Want to Settle For Mediocre Love
A few years ago, some dad friends of mine approached me and asked if I'd like to be a part of a podcast dedicated to talking about all things dad, good & bad. I was honored & said yes. So, for a whole year, I shared in on some wonderful conversations about dadhood on a podcast called The Discovering Dad Podcast.
What was interesting to me was how often we veered out of the dad realm and into the marriage realm. And how that part played such a huge role in our lives as dads and what we want to teach our kids about showing up for those in your lives. Marriage (or partner) first. That relationship has to take precedence over the parenting role.
Note: single parents, major standing ovation for doing what you do, when Jenny goes out of town, I get overwhelmed at all the tasks that are normally shared, let alone finding moments to sit down & let each of my kids know they're loved, they matter & they have many things to offer this world. You don't get all the respect you deserve.
What I'm getting at here is that I took part in a conversation on Discovering Dad with Nate Bagley last week. He's the creator of The Loveumentary & his newest project, First 7 Years. It was life changing. So I wanted to share it with all of you. Feel free to let me know what you thought about all the knowledge he drops on us...
