“One of the biggest needs in our generation is for men to step into the lives of boys to train them, equip them, and cheer them on to grow up as they begin the process of ‘manning up’ “–Dennis Rainey.

“To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today”–Barbara Johnson.

“There’s no substitute for a full-time dad. Dads who are fully engaged with their kids overwhelmingly tend to produce children who believe in themselves and live full lives. . . .Dads need to be available for their kids and be totally involved on many levels–physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. . . .I wonder if we all need to do a better job of listening to that gentle whisper from a God who daily reminds us to enjoy the sacred moments with those we love–especially with our precious children. They are moments we will look back on with either regret or a smile. Either way, the memory will last forever”–Coach Tony Dungy.

“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling”–Psalm 68:5.

“Our children are bombarded with an incredible deluge of information which competes to define who they are and what their values should be. I believe that providing clarity for our children of the mission of the family and its core beliefs is an incredible opportunity to counteract that cultural assault.”–Martin E Willoughby Jr.
