Your value as a father is to be appreciated and celebrated. You go beyond the act of biology. You are committed to your family, to your role as father. You go beyond 2D plastic definitions and provide tangible 3D life examples of being a dad.
Yes, there are challenges along the way. You’ve messed up and so have we. We do have that in common… the human thing.
But you have purposed to check in and show up in your family with a plan.. to be the best father you can be. Do you know how valuable you are? Happy Father's Day.

[00:04:11] Thank you for being committed in your role as father. [00:05:00] Dad, you are the original Superhero!
[00:06:09] Your words of affirmation to us build us up, give us confidence that we can do anything because you see it in us and you speak life into us.

Happy Father's Day! Do you know how valuable you are? | Victory in Mind Episode 14[:
[00:00:32] Are you concerned about your future, the state of the world and how to best navigate the options or lack thereof that life's thrown your way? Well, welcome to Victory in Mind. The podcast that focuses on practical strategies and solutions in living out our created potential. Together, our tribe will motivate you, activate, educate, engage, challenge and inspire us all towards our created potential. [00:01:00] You have a future. You have a hope. So don't give up.[:
[00:01:35] Let's start off with what a baby at conception might ask. Like, what is a father? What should I look for or expect from one who holds this task? Well in today's world, that's not an easily defined answer. Yes, when you look for the definition of a father online or in any dictionary, you'll see [00:02:00] that it refers to a male parent or a man who has begotten a child. Yet that is just the start of it. It's about the life journey with that child. What you bring to the table as a father. Those lifelong influences that will affect generation upon generation. Today, we have fathers who are totally present, presently absent, deadbeat on the street, abused and been abusers, recovering dads, those who are deceased and so many other facets in-between.[:
[00:03:20] Fathers, remember how valuable you are.ur care. For some, these can [:
[00:04:11] Because there could also be those people or those moments where absolutely nothing seems to work and you can't seem to find common ground or words or emotions or actions and that relationship seems to be at a breaking point. It may not look pretty and sometimes the desired outcome can be and may be hard to find. Yet you stick with it. Dad, you stick with it.
For all you fathers out there, thank you for being committed in your role as father.[:
See when we children around the world, when we're young, really young and as we get older, we look for someone to mimic, someone to emulate, especially in those formative years. And so that man who's right there next to you becomes your mirrored image. So we watch how you dress, how you help provide and take care of a family, what jokes you laugh at, how you laugh. Sometimes we take for granted your sacrifice in what you do every single day. Dad, you are the original Superhero! No one can beat my dad. In fact, I have a nephew when he was growing up and I happened to be taller than his [00:06:00] dad. In his eyes, I was never, ever taller than his dad cause his dad was the biggest and he could do everything.[:
Thank you for being devoted in your role as father.[:
See fatherhood, it's not always neat and tidy. When you correct us, when you discipline us in those little and big things throughout the years, no one likes it. Probably least of all your heart. There's so many of you, fantastic dads out there, who've received a bad rep for the actions of the other dads, who for so many reasons and maybe have not known what it is to be a father and how to discipline the kids and what that looks like.
But thank you to those dads out there who have been tough, but you've been fair. That balancing act for our character development thing. It's not easy. It's just not easy figuring it out. Life never is.
Thank you for being committed in your role as father.[:
How you treat mom, how you treat your daughters, the woman in your life. It adds more self-worth and self-confidence to us daughters more than you will ever know. I watched your dad and then I watch the men around us and how the treat the ladies in their lives. And you wonder, did they learn that action from the dads? Who did they pick it up from? Because those sons, they will watch and mirror you in their own lives, often reflecting that which they see you do.[:
[00:09:52] Because being a father goes beyond the, 'While you're in my [00:10:00] house, do what I tell you to do' or 'These are the rules that you abide by in my house.' It stretches over decades and to subsequent generations. That is the impact and the influence that you, our fathers bring to the table. So all of you who have instilled such strength, such love in us that we are thriving today.
Thank you for being dedicated in your role as a father.[:
Fatherhood is across generations. It only compounds with time. The older we get, the more we appreciate the efforts any efforts dad and dads around [00:11:00] the world, you made and you make to breathe life and success into your children's lives. The lessons that you once taught, they strangely find themselves being duplicated and incorporated into the fabric of the lessons, woven to the newer generations.
Those memories that you helped create today are the stuff of inner peace and contentment. Or jokes and saying what was dad thinking? How did we manage this? But it's because you were there, you were present. That's what life's about. So we thank you for being true to your role as father.[:
Whether you are a direct blood father, an uncle, a mentor, otherwise, fatherhood is something that's [00:12:00] easy to say, but it's much harder to understand and implement in the day to day outworking of our lives. Because most of the worth of being a father comes in the unspoken, the unwritten commands and definitions that underpin not just culture, but who we are as individuals.[:
[00:12:55] So any little one out there [00:13:00] who might still be wondering, if you're in the womb, what is a father? What should I look out for? I can't tell you what kind of father you will have. But there are so many who've shown what a priceless gift they are in the face of so many unknowns. There is no manuscript, no fatherhood school, no continuing education program on how to be a father. The best kind of fathers are those who just show up and daily do what they can.
They are a man with a plan... To be the best father you can be.
It wouldn't be the same without you. Happy Father's Day.[:
