My mission is to communicate a message of hope and encouragement to fellow dads. I am no better man than any other father out there that is trying to become a better man and a better father.
I used to think that my education was complete when I graduated from college in 2007. There's no degree for learning how to be a good dad. I am constantly evolving and learning. My favorite phrase right now is, "I don't know, yet". There's no roadmap specifically for me and my family. I've never been the father of 4 children until July 2019. I don't know yet how to handle all the things that will happen as my children grow. I seek counsel from other good men that have experience with similar or the same circumstances. If I can help others by sharing my journey through major depression and my path back to good health, then I am happy to share it!
I am no where near perfect, and I never will be. My goal is to improve as a father and to help other dads along the way, not to compete with anyone else. If my failures and experiences can help another man in his role as a dad, it gives me great joy to do so. Keep working on yourself, and you will see your children changing in a positive way.
Be you. Be grateful for your struggles. Share your story to help others going through something similiar. Your struggle is your strength.
