What IT Means To Be A Dad (To Me)
By Coach Muller • June 27, 2014
Twenty three years ago, the Lord decided to bless me with the first of my two sons. Needless to say, I have enjoyed every second of my life being a father and, most importantly, a dad to my boys. To be able to be a good example of the Lord, give Godly advice, and love them unconditionally is the best gift that I could ever be to them.
In my opinion, being a REAL dad is so much more than just saying that I am one…it is showing my children how much I love them by the things that I do with them and way that I show them my love. It’s sacrificing the time I have and things that I want to do…for them. Being a good dad is not about “what am I receiving from my kids” but what can I do for them?”
There are so many things that I have done with my boys which have given me an incredible sense of fulfillment and satisfaction…things like…
Fishing at the beach
Camping in the Adirondacks
Swimming in grandma’s pool
Hiking many trails and National Parks
Praying together and teaching them how to pray
Reading Bible Stories to them
Talking with them about life’s lessons
Going on vacations together
Getting them ready for college
Canoeing down the Colorado River and sleeping under the starts for 3 days
Coaching them in recreation soccer, basketball and baseball
Cheering and encouraging them at their football and soccer games
Smiling and laughing at each other’s jokes, humor and foolishness
Going to the zoo
Making homemade pizzas
Enjoying outdoor BBQ’s
Going to the beach, body surfing and fishing
…and the list goes on and on.
I think a REAL man loves his family and children and places them as the most important thing in life. There is NOTHING that has brought me more contentment and peace in my life as my family. Simply being a loving dad and husband is the most rewarding feeling I can ever have.
You see and you have to understand…Any guy can be a father but not every guy can be a dad!!
