One of my favorite conversations to have with dads is when they tell me how emotional and deeply meaningful it is for them to walk their daughters down the aisle. Today I’ve asked my friend, Tobie Hatfield to share from his heart and give us an insider’s view into what this recent event was like for him!
Most men tell me they like to BUILD—-whether it was with Lego’s as a kid or even now as adults when building shelves in their garage or a back deck, all with a hammer in hand. For others it’s been what they’ve done with their portfolio. Today on #thedadwhisperer I’m linking a dad’s love for BUILDING with ways he can do that with his daughter’s self esteem!Read More

We invite you to join us again today for Part 2 of our conversation as pastor and author, Marc Alan Schelske shares more of his difficult yet worthwhile journey to uncover the mystery of his emotions.

Dad, have you ever wondered how your connection (or lack of connection) to your emotions impacts your fathering? If so, you’ll want to hear pastor and author Marc Alan Schelske share some of his true backstory, one that impacted him as a dad with his daughter, yet one he’d never trade because of all he learned in the process. Listen as Marc helps us understand more about our emotional wiring while teaching us that “our emotions always tell the truth...just not always the truth you think.”
I want you as dads to know how important you are and how we as daughters thrive when you believe in us. With this being Thanksgiving Week I’m sharing “10 Reasons I’m Thankful for Fathers.” Join me today if you could use some encouragement!
Before Tom Mueller and I sat down for our interview, I had planned on calling it, “Raising Four Little Warriors for God.” But the more I heard his heartbreaking (and redemptive) story, I decided to use a more fitting title: “Being the Father You Never Had.” And this weekend Tom’s fourth daughter, Louisa Estelle, came into the world (congrats Tom & Sarah!), which makes this dad’s story even more powerful!
