Portrait of a Father

Chip Ingram, Founder and Pastor of Living on the Edge teaches an awesome series called, Portrait of a Father.

Hubby and I listened to a portion of the series together and both enjoyed it very much. I think it would make a great Father's Day gift for any special dad in your life!

Here is a short description of the series:
Why are effective fathers so vital to the health of our families and children? Why is it so difficult for men to be effective fathers? In this series, Chip paints the biblical portrait of a father as the leader, priest, teacher and lover of the home.

One part that my husband and I enjoyed in particular, was when Chip made the point that a father is a leader. He goes on to explain that he thought long and hard for a good definition for the word "leader," but after asking for feedback, he realized that men need a very straightforward, easy to remember definition.

So, he says, "Guys, are you ready? This one's for you. Here's what a leader is: He makes things happen!"

We loved it!
