D.A.Ds stands for Dads Are Disciplers and is a unique feature of Counselingoneanother.com. It is a mentality, a parenting worldview, a strategy for creating initiative in fathers to take the active role in shepherding our children in the ways and knowledge of God. It is an attempt to strengthen and encourage families by building them on the Word of God. My desire is to help my fellow fathers with our enormous task (and privilege) of raising up a generation that fears the Lord by providing encouragement and an ever-growing supply of biblical resources for our parenting toolbox. D.A.Ds has been created to put the following biblical truths into action:
Luke 1:17 …to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous; so as to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Psalm 78:4 We will not conceal them from their children, but tell to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and His strength and His wondrous works that He has done.
Ephesians 6:4 And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger; but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Lord willing, this resource will lead to growth in the effective spiritual leadership of our families. Please email me your helpful ideas and suggestions for this site feature. May God richly bless our families as we grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ!
