Dwight L. Moody once said, "The world has yet to see what God will do with, and for, and through, and in, and by the man who is fully and wholly consecrated to him."
There are no perfect fathers, no perfect husbands, and certainly no one who perfectly loves our great God. But praise God, that's never been the goal: us getting it right.
We can honor dads and fatherhood...not because there's a perfect one among them, but because God does immeasurably more than we ask or imagine through simple men who offer contrite hearts to their God.
I asked recently on Instagram:
What did you learn from your dad by simply spending time with him?
The responses were inspiring to read. They reminded me that in spite of all that we wished and hoped for in our dads, by God's grace, and through his redemptive purposes in our lives: God allow us to see the beautiful and wonderful things in fatherhood...in our own fathers.
God isn't calling heroic fathers; he's calling humble ones. And frankly, from all that you all shared of your memories with your dads....the lessons they passed on when they didn't know they had anything special to offer...were the most inspiring.
These new prints released in GraceLaced Shoppe reflect my heart for family and fatherhood. I hope you all are blessed by these and can pass the blessing on to those who need the encouragement to press on.

That freebie mini 5"x5" print? It's my new favorite G.K. Chesterton quote...because manhood, leadership, bravery, and wisdom doesn't just show up one day because you all of a sudden have use for it. It is trained daily in the unseen, mundane tasks of every day life. That gives me hope as a parent, and I pray it does you.
Press on mothers and fathers: You are doing an precious work...by Him, through Him, and for Christ alone.
Because of grace,
