For a course on cross-cultural understanding, I reviewed Hair Love, a children’s literature. It is an inspirational book about a father helping his daughter style her hair. During my critical review, I found an article that states: “Evidence suggests that from infancy to adulthood, warm, close, and responsive father-child relationships have diverse and significant influences […]
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. Psalm 68:5 Perhaps Father’s day comes with painful memories for you or your children. I pray that Psalm 68:5 comforts you today and everyday. 🌷❤ Would you like to become a member of God’s family? Please say the […]
I am thankful to God for my late grandfather. My grandfather gave me two life-changing gifts- exposure to Christianity and value for education. As his first grandchild, he called me his “special child”. He carried me, cared for me, and prayed for me. I am his glory. Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the […]
My prayer for all fathers: May you live long to enjoy the fruits of your labor. May you be celebrated in heaven and on earth. May your life reveal the love and comfort of God to every child in your sphere of influence. May the good Lord bless you and give you wisdom to make […]
The role of a mother is to support fathering and the role of a father is to support mothering. Last month, I was privileged to write a devotional in partnership with Mr. Michael Griego , a seasoned father and grandfather. He shared scriptures, prayer points, and 5 essentials for great and effective fatherhood, and I […]
If fathers were not uniquely important in the lives of children, we would not need them for procreation. However, there is more to fatherhood than procreation. Fathers uniquely discipline and comfort their children. 2 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV) says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and […]

This quote reminds me of God, our heavenly father as a parent. God corrects his imperfect children, yet he calls them righteous/perfect and calls forth who they will become. God convicts his children, He does not put the weight of condemnation on them. Conviction leads to repentance, condemnation leads to separation. God models what wise […]
Arrogant people do not see the need to apologize. In fact, arrogance is usually subtle and it disguises itself in form of tradition. I was raised in a society where parents are always right and opinionated children are considered disrespectful. While a lot of children including myself learned to be obedient and follow the rules, […]
In parenting, there should be no competition between a mother and father. It is not wise to manipulate our children so that they would prefer one parent than the other. We should use our mother-child relationship to strengthen father-child relationship and vice versa. It is important for a mother and father to have a united […]
So to those in a similar situation, let me encourage you with this…I have two dads that I love with all of my heart. One brought me into the world, the other helped me learn how to live in it.
Happy Father’s day to the grandfathers, biological fathers, adoptive fathers, step-fathers, single fathers, foster-fathers, and spiritual fathers giving fatherhood their best. We are grateful that you give your best even when it’s hard. Despite your imperfection, you give us a glimpse of the perfect father, our father in heaven. Thank you for staying and loving. […]
