Estimates are that over 85% of long-term prison inmates in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice grew up without a dad involved in their lives.
It is on us dads to raise godly young men! We must be there to discuss Biblical manhood with our sons early and often and exemplify it in our daily lives. As we do, we will see the prison population decrease significantly.

Statistics reflect that young ladies are three times as likely to become teen mothers when dad is not engaged in their lives.
It is up to us dads to be engaged emotionally with our daughters, date them regularly and partner with Mom to discuss life choices before another life is involved. As we do, we may just see abortion clinics go out of business.

The Word on Being There: “He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.” – Malachi 4:6. Our Father shares the moniker “father” with us dads for a reason – to be His representative in the home. The absence of fathers in the home has been the cause for many societal woes. Being there, present and accountable as His representative in the home is the solution.

1. Schedule time with your daughter(11-18) or young son(8-13) to attend one of the upcoming Being There

    retreats at Camp Cullen –  Father/daughter December 6-8; Father/young son December 13-15, 2013.
2. Ask a buddy to work through a study for dads together utilizing Dads Becoming Heroes.
3. Initiate a core group of dads in your church that will help engage dads in raising a godly generation - LEAD.

Comment below on how Dad impacted your view of manhood, or your view regarding women.

Your messages are always right on target. They are also very beneficial for us Dads with older kids who will always be with us. Hardly a day goes by that some situation comes up to put into action your teachings. I thank God for your friendship and the great job you do.
