Drawing Dad in as The Children Grow Up

It’s never too late for dad to get more involved in their children’s lives.  One easy place for dad to have an influence is spiritually.  There are many ways that dad can be the spiritual leader in the home.  A great way for dad to lead is by doing family devotions in the morning.  This may sound like a daunting task but it can be as simple as reading a few Bible verses as a family and then praying together at the end of breakfast before everyone goes out the door.  There are even devotionals that can be read which take a verse and explain it age appropriately.  Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be a small sermon everyday just something simple.

What mom can do is constantly encourage her husband.  Never underestimate the power of a “thanks for doing that” or a small encouraging word. Many times we as women spend more time nitpicking what our husband don’t do then encourage them when they step out and do something for us.  Choose to be an encourager!
