  2. Your Family's Mobile Classroom

    Your Family's Mobile Classroom

  9. Dads, is Family Discipleship on Your Calendar?

    Christian dads, everything we do should be marked with intentionality—even how we take dominion over our schedules.

Inspired by the late Peter Drucker, who coached leaders to “know thy time,” it helps users complete the exercise Drucker recommended of keeping a log of their time in order to determine what they are doing over the course of 24-hour time periods. What would such a tool show about your life? What would it indicate about your work, your exercise, or your leisure time? More importantly, what would it indicate about your life as a Christian dad? ... More
