    Becoming the Fathers we are Meant to Be | Jonathan Darby

    Becoming the Fathers we are Meant to Be | Jonathan Darby

    Do you ever look back and think, "How the heck did I get here?!"  

    I mean, in a good way.  

    Jon and I have been friends for decades. Needless to say, we've been through some stuff. It's actually shocking that we are still alive and able to record this episode!  I've been amazed at Jon's transformation (and my own for that matter). When you focus on getting your priorities straight, and being just a bit better than yesterday, amazing things can happen.  

    In this episode, Jon and I discuss the ups and downs of life and examine why fatherhood has changed us for the better.

    Am I Raising a Stranger

    #68: As fathers we have a responsibility to provide for our children. Often, that manifests with us working hard to pay bills. 

    But if we're not there, who's actually raising our kids? Is it a teacher, coparent, step-parent? Is it the TV, radio, or phone?

    Recently, I've noticed my 5 year old yelling and arguing more. today, things came to a head.

    Do you relate to this story?

    Listen and let me know.
