Did you know:
• 24 million children are growing up in homes without their biological fathers.
• Only 30% of divorces are due to infidelity, addiction or abuse, 70% of divorces are due to couples feeling disconnected.
• Couples who manage to devote time specifically to one another at least once a week are markedly more likely to enjoy high-quality relationships and lower divorce rates, compared to couples who do not devote as much couple time to one another.
• Fathers provide unique benefits to their daughters through their active and positive presence from the time of birth all the way through adulthood.
First Things First has a media/video collection that really brings these topics above home, and makes valid points in easy to relate to ways. Check out this adorable video:


Don't you just love it?

False assumptions actually GOT his team working together! And he got to his 'date' on time, and in style!

Fathers really ARE so important in their daughters lives, if they they take an ACTIVE participant role. Even when my dad was literally across the world (thanks to the US Navy), he made sure to connect with me as much as possible, and to work with my mother on parenting together. I'm thrilled that he is able to share that same connectivity with Miss Grace and be a solid male influence in her life, and show her what it means to be a man who cares and takes care of his family! And when we do special activities as 3 generations, I know that the memories are imprinting on her subconscious as happy ones! 

Have you connected with your loves ones lately in a meaningful way?
