Babies have no choice. Toddlers and young children idolize you. But once they grow out of that we’re gonna have to do something more than simply bring their father. To have the relationships we want with our kids as they grow we are going to have to work for it.
The 21-Day Dad’s Challenge
Edited by Carey Casey
This book is set up to be read as a devotional starting with a story and ending with an idea to connect with your children. Each devotion is easy to read, easy to digest and easy to implement. Unlike some books on relationships this book doesn’t require you to go spend money; instead it focuses on spending time not spending money.
Each day is written by a different contributor, like sports stars Shaun Alexander and Tony Dungy, and well known Christian writers like Josh McDowell and Randy Alcorn. It’s tied together by Focus on the Family and Carey Casey editing.
I found that each chapter had nuggets of truth and held valuable lessons. I didn’t get through it in 21 days, but over the course of reading the book I did come up with many ways to make its influence last longer that just three weeks. It is a worthwhile book for Christian fathers who want to build long lasting, strong relationships with their children.
