A Resource Roundup for Dads–Plus our Best Giveaway Yet!!!
If I ever needed some help from a resource roundup for dads, 2020 is it. It never crossed my mind we’d have to dine-in for our anniversary or cap the guest list for the Father’s Day BBQ. I never could have predicted a life of 24/7 parenting while working across the kitchen table from my wife every day. I’ve had to step up as the go-to guy for Taco Tuesday deliveries, Lego build consulting, and stress management. (i.e. keeping the fam well-stocked with ice cream, hammocks, and a shoulder to cry on at all times.) While I thought I was doing pretty good as a family man, COVID-19 made me realize this fatherhood and marriage gig is even tougher than I thought.
You too? Let’s dive into this resource roundup for dads so we can stay on our game and love our families well.
(Once you check out the websites, books, and resources here, don’t miss your shot at the giveaway at the bottom of this post!)
At dadtired.com, Jerrad Lopes offers his book, Dad Tired and Loving It: Stumbling Your Way to Spiritual Leadership. You’ll also find links to the Dad Tired podcast, free e-book downloads, and powerful resources. Join a free “community of men who are taking their faith, family, and marriage very seriously.” If you want to dig deep and get real as a godly leader in your home, Dad Tired is the place for you.
What is Faithful Man? According to its founder, Matthew Jacobson,
“This is a community where you will find daily inspiration and instruction on how to be part of what the world needs – more men who love their wives deeply, passionately, and faithfully; more women who are cherished by their husbands… And, more obedience to the Word of God . . . a lot more.”
You’ll find the Faithful Life Podcast, articles, and printable tools. Explore signups for marriage and parenting coaching. Shop for books and wearables that will take your relationships to a whole new level.
At husbandrevolution.com, Aaron Smith challenges us about
“Taking the road less traveled in marriage. The world has made it to easy for you to walk away. To quit and to give up on the gift that God gave you, your wife. It may even applaud you if you do. The Enemy is working over time to destroy any and all credibility the church has by breaking up our marriages. What do you think the world thinks about God when they see His followers acting just like them? I believe we as husbands have a unique and powerful opportunity to share Christ with the world simply in the way we love our wives.”
To help us grab that opportunity, Aaron Smith and his wife, Jennifer, created a collection of smart, practical titles to show us how it’s done. They share my personal passion for prayer in the life of our home. Become the praying dad, husband, and couple who experience the transforming power of God in our family.
Jeff and Alyssa Bethke
