The Top 5 Posts of 2022
Post #1: 7 Roles of a Father
We see in Scripture and in the research, that because of the magnitude of his influence, the father—in one generation—will either significantly strengthen or deeply damaged almost every aspect of society through his direct impact on future generations. Every business is run by somebody who had a dad. Every ministry, every government, every church, every organization—where there’s somebody breathing—they had an earthly father.
Sadly, this power earthly fathers have isn’t always on display in our homes. We need to set these roles in front of us as goals to model for our kids. Stephen Kendrick writes about the 7 roles of a father.
Post #2: Responsibilities of a Father: How to Serve (and Constantly Improve)
Here are three simple questions you can use to get yourself (or the dads you serve) started on an annual assessment.
- What are my strengths as a dad that I should keep doing?
- What are my challenges as a dad that I should seek to improve?
- What advice can I use that can help me double down on my strengths or address my challenges?
Christopher Brown, President of National Fatherhood Initiative, writes about the third question in this post.

Ken Canfield writes about the top ten (10) facts on fathering. Use these statistics in your writing and research.

Post #5: My Dad Has Anger Issues: Where, When, and With Whom Do You Get Angry
“My dad has anger issues.” This is what I hear in working with fathers all of the time. We must tackle this issue head-on as dad.

Thank you for following our blog this year. We pray you can reveal—to a watching world—the peace, love, and joy of Christ in your fathering as we finish out 2022 and as we start 2023.
