The year 2016 was very good to my family.
We welcomed a new family member, my oldest started kindergarten and I decided to start a blog. For months I contemplated what the blog should be about. There were already so many parenting and fatherhood blogs out there that I was ready to give up the idea. It was while reading the Bible to my daughter at bedtime that a brilliant idea came to mind.
The next morning I typed into the search engine ‘Christian Dad Blogs.’ I was so excited the first result was “Where are all the Christian Dad Bloggers?”
After that, I knew I had my blog.
A Father’s Instruction, the name inspired from Proverbs 4:1, would help dads to raise their children while using biblical principles. Real-life applications of Bible verses in everyday fatherhood situations.
I am proud of my little blog and the community that has grown around it.
