A father plays an important role in a child's life. Stay-at-home dads, single dads, and working dads are all equally important in their roles as teacher, mentor, protector, encourager, provider, disciplinarian, and leader. Here are some reasons to appreciate and ways to celebrate the father figures in our lives.

The father's role is so critical in the foundation and future lives or our kids. We've been reading a great new, actually renewed book, I think all dads with your understanding would enjoy. Great for all dads of daughters. We're loving it, so I have to share... It's called “She Calls Me Daddy: 7 Things You Need to Know About Building a Complete Daughter,” by Robert Wolgemuth. Originally released in the 90s, it was a best seller. His girls are grown up and give their own input along with their husbands who are daddies to girls. I understand 40% of the book is new material. It's so unique in this way. Robert puts the anxieties of Daddy raising his girl(s) to rest, guiding you through challenges and good times – protecting, conversation, affection, discipline, laughter, faith, conduct. So great for helping daddies learn to lead, love and cherish. I highly recommend it! http://www.tyndale.com/She-Calls-Me-Daddy/9781589977853#.U7jH414Q7wI
