What does being a father mean to you?

Being a father means unconditional love, support, and being present at all times. It’s important for me to be there when I’m needed, but to also be there in the moments when I may not think I’m needed. Being a father is being the man my children can depend on.

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

My experience with my father was one of him always been there for me no matter what. He was a great role model and exemplified everything he taught. He didn’t just talk the talk, but also walked the walk. That was very impactful on the type of father and man I am today, because I strive to be the same way he was and still is to this day.

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

Accountability, raising my family with spiritual values, respect, hard work, and being financially responsible are all things that come to mind when I think of my experiences growing up. I have plenty of examples and memories that are all summed up in those few words and phrases.

Have you had any obstacles on your fatherhood journey?

The biggest obstacle I’ve had on my fatherhood journey is learning to have a balance between work and home life. It’s one thing to be a strong provider, but children (especially boys) need their father present to laugh, talk to, pray with, play with, and even to correct them. Those things are what build the foundation in a father/child relationship. I had to learn that very quickly.

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

The advice I would give new fathers on their fatherhood journey is to have patience and just be present in every moment. Enjoy those moments, because children grow up very quickly! Always remember to have fun with your children on the journey as well!

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

Dear Father,

Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a great example to me of what a father should be to his children. Thank you for putting in the work and never giving up on me. Even when it seemed like I wasn’t listening, I heard every word you said and even what you didn’t say. You’re a big part of the reason I’m the man I am today!
