pathway surrounded by trees

Step into the light and embrace the dad God has destined you to be. Prioritize your life with your wife following after God, and let His radiance guide you to become the parent your children need. By embodying your values through your thoughts, words, and actions, let us inspire the world to follow in our footsteps and become the fathers we were meant to be.

Do you have a personal relationship with God through Jesus, as described in Hebrews 9? When Jesus paid the ultimate price, the curtain tore, and we no longer needed a priest to act as a mediator between us and God. We can now have a relationship with God through Jesus anywhere we are, not just in one particular place. Have you embraced this opportunity?
