We didn't know, but God did. Episode 91

God’s signature on the events were perfectly clear, but not until AFTERWARD.  .  HE knew what was coming. We thought we were making a Father’s Day gift for Rich but we were participating, unknowingly, in a divine and sacred gift from God. It was the Father’s Day we’ll never forget because our heavenly father came with His perfect compassionate arms to embrace our family’s father in a way that ONLY GOD COULD DO.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Every child longs for a loving father.  Every child has a perfect Heavenly Father, and either an imperfect or absent earthly father.  On today's podcast, we'll be talking about all of that - the harmful father, the absent father, the imperfect but loving father, and your child's Heavenly Daddy.   This is an episode of honor and hope as well as some inspiration for marriage and some role modeling of fatherhood, too.  Even the good dads aren't perfect,  but those imperfect loving dads are probably accomplishing more than you might think!And you'll be reminded that no matter what kind of father your child has experienced, they have a loving, Heavenly Daddy who is always with them!Resources Mentioned in this episodeFocus on the Family Help line - 1-855-771-HELP (4357)Book: Different Children, Different Needs  by Charles BoydVal's workshop audio: Help!

The Practically Speaking MOM, Val Harrison, is here to bring some order to the chaos and some focus to the confusion. You don’t have to be the perfect mom to have a strong family, you need a plan! Join author, speaker, mother of seven, and grandma of two, as she shares wisdom and encouragement about the six areas of an intentional mom's life.

Val wants to encourage you to not become weary in your work as an intentional mom, "Even with all its unique personalities, imperfections and scars; your family is God's masterpiece. Your efforts matter in this worthy journey of motherhood." Galations 6:9 says, "Do not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time you'll reap a harvest if you do not give up." Let's walk this marathon journey of motherhood TOGETHER, right here, every Monday on the Practically Speaking MOM podcast, the place for an intentional mom to build a strong family.
