One thing I really appreciate about my husband is his heart to disciple and build relationship with his own sons. He realizes that these boys are going to grow up to be men, and the best thing he can do is to keep them as much as possible by his side to work and play. These boys are learning from their daddy what it means to be a hard-working and loving family man, not from the TV (where men are often portrayed as buffoons), and certainly not from their peers (blind leading the blind there!).
Here you can see both my husband and oldest son (9) working together to produce his podcast, Spinal Column Radio. My son feels so important, so valued that his daddy wants him to be there.
And I, as a wife and mother, am learning to keep the whole matter in prayer! I cannot *push* my husband to do such things. But God is faithful to turn his heart as I trust His ways.
My 3 year old son is already close to his daddy’s side as well. He has great dreams of doing a “monkey podcast”. And knowing Tom, the website and plans are probably already in the works.
