Creator God is Father God and He has a plan to reveal Himself to the world through fathers and mothers. He does things that demonstrate His nature and as we see and experience them, we come to know Him more through what He does. In the process we also learn who we are and become more like Him as we reflect Him to our sons and daughters through what we say and do. In raising sons and daughters in this way, we leave a legacy that continues to grow beyond our own generation.

I have titled this book Things Fathers Do, but it is really things that God does and how we can best manifest Him through our lives to the people in our lives. So, don’t believe the lie that only men can father, and don’t allow gender to disqualify you from revealing the Father. Find the best you that you can and express it. Not n competition or comparison, but in order to reveal the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, made as a man or a woman in the image of God, in every role and relationship through your life.
