Practicing Fatherhood

Isaac Hopper

From the author:

"Father. This single word has the power to inspire feelings of pride, fear, longing, regret, anger, and hope in the most stoic of individuals. It is a title that cannot be understood outside of the relationship of parent and child, and yet for so many in our culture it is the root of family brokenness.

Some of the simplest lessons I have learned about being a father have been the most important for my children, and I have come to discover things that challenged what I previously thought about what it means to be a loving father. I have compiled this short list of lessons that I have learned over my years as a father in the hope that it might encourage others as they seek to live into that most precious gift they will ever receive and most important job title they will ever hold."
