David Stelzl Reflecting on Father’s Day

Photo Taken By Hannah Stelzl

On my bulletin board above my desk I have a card I received from one of the many home school conferences I’ve attended.  It lists a set of goals for fathers… in summary here are some helpful things to have in front of you if you are a father…

1. Respond lovingly and wisely to every situation and successfully fulfill  the purposes for with God created me.

2. Enjoy a loving relationship with my wife and quickly resolve any conflicts that arise

3. Make all the members in my family “best friends” with each other and help them clear up any offenses between each other

4. Train up sons and daughters to be wise

5. Help each child discover his or her purposes in life so that they will not fear the future or have self rejection

6. To serve those around us as a family – with family goals and vision to help others in need

7. Maintain proper health so that I can continue to meet the needs of my family
