Seven Promises from Your Dad

I wrote this a few years ago for my kids, something I try to live up to everyday. It’s also one of the seminars I’m developing for a men’s retreat. So, what do you think? Have you made similar commitments/promises to your kids?


  1. I am committed to love you always.  
  1. I am committed to display my love for you and openly show my favor with words and deeds.
  1. I am committed to lead by example and help you grow in the character of Christ.
  1. I am committed to help prepare you to be a person of purity in heart, body and soul.
  1. I am committed to know you, your dreams, gifts, and help you explore your God given abilities.
  1. I am committed to help you confront and conquer your fears and weaknesses.
  1. I am committed to love and honor your mom all the days of my life.

Awesome. It reminds me of my Dad, Guy. He is one who walks the talk and has exhibted all points. Years after I went to live with them he said with me, he learned to endure. He was not just committed, he was dedicated. I am so thankful for real men like that and your encouragement to other men to do the same.
