Fathers – Speak Love Into the Lives of Your Children

I received this from an email from the makers of the upcoming film Courageous.  This movie is being produced by the same people that brought us Fireproof.

Showing Love to Your Kids
As we get ready to celebrate Valentine's Day on Sunday, chances are you've put some time and energy into how you can best show your love to your spouse. While that is a priority both in February and throughout the year, Dads need to remember to let their kids know they are loved as well.

We recently talked about fatherhood with Courageous executive producer Michael Catt. Listen to what Pastor Catt says about the importance of speaking love into your kids' lives, no matter how old or young they are.

This video message spoke volumes into my heart as I’m reminded of myself yelling at Briana last week in her High School soccer game.  Yes, at times, I get caught up in what she could of done better instead of speaking love into her life.  I do think that we need to encourage our children to do better however, yelling at them from the sideline is not the correct way to do it.  I’m so proud of my children, it is my prayer and hope that I take this role seriously and take every opportunity to genuinely speak love into their lives.

On another note… if you need to do something on the cheap for Valentine’s Day, I highly recommend renting the movie Fireproof.  It will definitely tug on your heart and bless your marriage.
