Last week, I was blessed with the opportunity to attend a seminar called “Summit on Causal Leadership.”
It was an incredible experience to be in a setting with agencies, both state and non-profit, talking about leadership. Not just any type of leadership, but leadership that helps achieve goals for kids with special healthcare needs.
I left the meeting on Thursday with a full head of steam and a lot of ideas. Friday’s session cemented my goals.
I plan to apply for non-profit status for “Why Not Fathers”.
I plan to develop some brochures and offer my abilities to speak to differing groups of people about fatherhood.
What it takes to be a father, how to keep a marriage alive, staying involved in the lives of our kids.
See, I have this belief. This belief that “parenthood is a lifestyle choice.” More on that concept at another time.
For now, one step at a time.
I am looking for speaking opportunities. I am also looking for guest bloggers.
Fathers need to be seen as more than just a father. We need to exemplify leadership qualities for our families. Sure, I am the leader of my family, and I have my wife’s permission to say so. I am speaking at a deeper level than that.
Being a dad is about more than just donating sperm. It is about more than being the disciplinarian in the family.
I look forward to the challenge. How can I help you? By helping you, I am also helping myself.
