Eyes of the Father: Being a parent isn’t easy, but there’s help

I'll admit that before becoming a father, I had some preconceived notions about what fatherhood would be like. I figured I'd walk in the door after a long day and the kids would run up, yelling and screaming in their excitement to see me.

Eyes of the Father: 'Pretending' sin isn't so won't fool God

I'm a guy. This means I have a genetic defect which prevents me from properly matching colors. It wasn't a big deal when I was a single man. I was perfectly comfortable wearing only black, white and various shades of gray.

Eyes of the Father: A loving father always forgives

I don't remember what he'd done, but Cole had done something he wasn't supposed to. I got down on his level and told him not only what he'd done was wrong, but why.

Eyes of the Father: Make God your one and only father

I went in to kiss Chloe good night. She put one of her little hands on each side of my face, leaned in close and said, "You are the cutest, cutest, cutest man. I love you so much because you are my favorite daddy. I was very happy when God made you on the earth."

Eyes of the Father: Don't grow up and leave God behind

One afternoon, Chloe wanted to watch a movie. In a completely unplanned turn of events, I reached for the remote at the same time she walked toward the TV. I hit the power button just as Chloe touched the TV screen.

Eyes of the Father: Why be shy about revealing our faith?

There are certain times when my kids make me so proud. Cole mooning an entire restaurant, however, was not one of those times.

Eyes of the Father: Gifts of love hold great value

Eyes of the Father: Let our Father be strong for you in time of need

I came along behind Chloe and swept her up into my arms. She looked at me with a surprised expression on her face and said, "Daddy, you're strong!"

Eyes of the Father: Passage of time can vary in eternity

"For hours" is Chloe's new saying when she's bored. She uses the phrase in the following contexts: "We've been driving for hours." "We've been watching this movie for hours" (depending on what the movie's about, I may actually agree with her assessment).

Eyes of the Father: The joy of being found

Chloe and Cole are not very good at hide and seek. We played the game in the house the other day. I told them to go hide somewhere and I would be "it." I told them I would count to 20, then come looking for them. If I found them, I won. If I didn't find them, they won.

Eyes of the Father: We should leave the punishment to God

I think that one of these days, Chloe and Cole are going to grow up and seek careers in law enforcement. Why do I think this? Because they demonstrate a heightened sense of justice? Because of their desire to see wrongs righted?

Eyes of the Father: God finds the right combo of ingredients to heal our souls

One night at the dinner table, I watched Cole eat. He scooped up some sweet potatoes and placed them on top of a nacho cheese Dorito. Then he ate it.

Eyes of the Father: Discipline can help our faith grow

Cole came to me crying. This in itself is not unusual. Cole cries at a lot of things. If he gets in trouble. If Chloe says or does something mean to him. When he has to go to bed.

Eyes of the Father: Remember the real reason for the Christmas season

This Christmas, I've been a man on a mission. When I was a child, Christmas was one of my favorite times of the year. I have many happy memories tied to the holiday.
