    June 10, 2018Don’t Let Your To-Do List Make You Miss Being a DadWesley Wolfe In a technological world of instant gratification, it has become very difficult to be patient for anything to come full circle, whether it’s personal goals or products arriving in the mail. The patient man or woman is usually a simple man or woman with the ability to understand the beauty of the process; not just the outcome.I am not patient.It doesn’t matter what we’re talking about, but there’s a good chance I don’t have the patience for it. I like things to be completed so...

    Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad Freepers! Here is a great short article about the MOST important words a dad can say to his children....hope this will be a blessing to you this day..... “Watch me, dad. Watch me.” There are few imperatives a father hears more often from his children than “watch me.” It’s a plea for us to recognize that whatever our son or daughter is doing—catching a ball, jumping off a diving board—is worthy of our full attention. They know we are often busy, often distracted, and they want, at least for a moment, for us...

    Commentators, almost always from the right, have documented liberal media bias for many years now. And the response by the perpetrators of this bias has been both constant and predictable: Circle the wagons and blame the accusers. Accuse us of bias for seeing their bias. The bias we've been talking and writing about is usually about partisan politics and hot social issues like abortion. But there's one kind of liberal media bias that hasn't gotten much attention. It's a bias that liberals both in and out of the media often attach to conservatives, but almost never to themselves. It's racial...

    CANADA, January 15, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – “Procreation is becoming a global public health concern, rather than a personal decision,” a feminist wrote for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in an article trashing "Fixer Upper" stars Chip and Joanna Gaines for having a fifth child. “It's not an exaggeration to say that the survival of our species depends” on population control, Kristen Pyszczyk wrote. Even though population control “carries with it associations with eugenics and other nasty historical events...we still need to talk about it.” The Gaines couple of HGTV fame announced the existence of their fifth child by posting a...

    What A Father Can Give His Daughter Msgr. Charles Pope • December 9, 2016 • For most people who view the commercial below, the focus is the Apple iPhone. But for us, I think the true focus should not be the Apple phone the man holds, but the apple of his eye, his daughter. Here is a father who delights in his daughter, and a daughter who is both affirmed by and happy in his delight.A young girl naturally desires the love and appreciation of her father. She delights in being the apple of Daddy’s eye. If she does...
  • At the cellular level, a child’s loss of a father is associated with increased stress

    08/25/2017 3:55:42 PM PDT · by PROCON · 3 replies
    The absence of a father — due to incarceration, death, separation or divorce — has adverse physical and behavioral consequences for a growing child. But little is known about the biological processes that underlie this link between father loss and child well-being. In a study (link is external) published July 18 in the journal Pediatrics, a team of FFCWS researchers report that the loss of a father has a significant adverse effect on telomeres, the protective nucleoprotein end caps of chromosomes. At 9 years of age, children who had lost their father had significantly shorter telomeres — 14 percent...
  • In Arkansas, Women Must Now Get A Man's Permission Before An Abortion

    Konbini ^ | 7/10/2017 | Kimberly B. Johnson
    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...

    FULL TITLE: Single mother who dressed up as dad so she could go with her little girl, 6, to her father-daughter dance is BANNED from the event A single mom dressed up like a man so that she could take her six-year-old daughter to her highly-anticipated father-daughter school dance — but the school's principal refused to let them attend. Knowing how much her daughter, Gracie, wanted to attend the dance even though her father was out of the picture, Amy Peterson, of Henry County, Georgia, decided she'd take her daughter to the dance. The conform to the dance's theme though,...

    St. Joseph and Manhood Msgr. Charles Pope • March 19, 2017 • I remember once being amused to hear that a 19th century Franciscan theologian (whose name I cannot recall) wrote a six-volume set called “The Life of St. Joseph.” How could one possibly get enough material to fill six volumes? We know so little about Joseph from Scripture. He seems to have been the strong, silent type. Not a word of his is recorded, but his actions have much to say, especially to men.On this feast of St. Joseph, we do well to ponder him as a model...

    Fathers will now be allowed the same parental leave as new mothers, under measures agreed by Spain’s parliament. The Spanish congress has voted to extend paid paternity leave from 13 days to 16 weeks, equal to that awarded to women. Until now, fathers were entitled to just 13 consecutive days off work with the arrival of a new member of the family, be it through birth, fostering or adoption, plus two days to be present at the birth itself. …

    Over the last several months—and especially the last few weeks—much has been made of the “Ferguson effect.” The phenomenon is now so widely discussed that it has its own Wikipedia page (though I wouldn’t suggest visiting it for an explanation). St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson coined the phrase in November of 2014, but Heather MacDonald popularized it in a Wall Street Journal op-ed in 2015... Again, out-of-wedlock births in the U.S. are at historic highs, and the vast majority of black children in America are born to single mothers. And just as criminal gangs and other undesirables fill the...

    Dad taught me to work hard and long and watch out for details, something I have treasured during my life Character must be sought, taught, and caught but often it is fought! Whatever character I have, I got it from my father who died at age 66. My dad was a highly principled and successful man with a sixth grade education! At this time of year, it is appropriate that I consider how much I owe him. Much of what I am and what I have accomplished is because of him. Dad dropped out of school in the sixth grade...

    Sometimes our poor efforts as earthly fathers do provide a small glimmer of the awesome nature of our all-powerful, loving Heavenly Father. Today we took all the kids to a park they love which is near family we're visiting. It's kind of a tradition to go there every couple of years when we're out here. Anyhow, this park has a rope climb in the shape of a big pyramid. It's the top draw of this particular place. It's fairly safe, although it really is very high. The top of the pyramid is probably forty to fifty feet off the ground....

    White girls like Rachel Dolezal and black girls like Dajerria Becton go wild without the presence of strong father figures. No one knows why Rachel Dolezal—a 37-year-old adult Caucasian woman—pretended to be black for the past 20 years. No one understands this woman’s full motivation for falsifying her heritage, donning wigs and feigning her adopted African American brother is her biological son. Likewise, no one knows—given conflicting eyewitness accounts—exactly what happened at the McKinney, Texas pool party on June 5 where 15-year-old black girl Dajerria Becton tussled with a white police officer. In Dolezal’s case, cynics would blame her greed...
