Describe your experience with your father growing up and how that impacted you today.

My experience with my father was once of many lonely nights, hungry days, and self identity issues. My father had many issues like any human walking this earth and it was through all the struggles growing up that helped me shape how I was going to be as a father today and it also gave me am appreciation for good healthy fathers.

What things did you take from your experience growing up into your own fatherhood journey?

I learned to never say something that I wouldn’t follow through with. I’ve learned that not amount of money in the world can replace quality time.

What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?

Take it one day at a time, don’t be too hard on yourself when you have to discipline your kids, and give yourself some GRACE

If you could write a quick letter to your father, starting with “Dear Father,” what would you say?

Dear father,
I just want to thank you for giving birth to me in allowing me to live this thing called life. Through all the ups and downs and all the things that we went through kids I appreciate you always being there even though you are perfect. There’s no amount of money our gratitude that I can give you but all I can give you is my thanks.

Love you forever
