Hey y’all, Tiffany here.
One of the most heartbreaking things about social media and the prevalence of extreme feminism has been the denigration of fathers and their role in the home.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am very pro-woman. I believe that men and women have equal value and worth, and that needs to be reflected in culture and society. I’m concerned, however, that the raising up of women is coming at the expense of men and their value. Too often, men (and fathers especially) are mocked as incompetent in their roles of husband and father.
That’s a soapbox for another day, however. With Father’s Day only a few weeks away, I wanted to take a bit of time to celebrate the men in our lives who are mirrors of God’s love for His children.
I have been extremely blessed with a wonderful father to raise me and and equally amazing husband as the father of my children. Phillip has had to step up quite often with my Crohn’s Disease, and there have been several times where he has managed the household and been the primary parent.
As part of celebrating fathers, I wanted to put together a collection of some of my favorite videos and quotes (and even statements from other bloggers) that honor husbands and fathers and their efforts to do the best they can do.
If you’re looking for ways to celebrate the great men who raise good children in your life, check out our post Frugal & Easy Father’s Day Ideas.
My 83-year old dad moved in with us a few months ago (after my mom’s passing). I’m thankful my kids will learn from him, too, just as I did, on how to be the best person you can be. He teaches honestly and ethical living just by the way he lives…and that’s be best way to learn!

My dad told me once that it’s never good to say “hate” or to “hate” as it hurts the your soul.

My dad was the type of person who never got stressed or angry. He taught me how to let the little things slide and it has helped make me the resilient adult I am today.

Daddy Bob always taught me that “if you don’t go, you don’t get.”

My dad was the first person I ever baked with. He helped me bake strawberry butterfly cakes as a child then we sold them together at a craft sale. My love for baking grew from there and now I bake for a living!
