Strong Dad or Hard Dad?

There are a lot of counterfeits in the world that people fall for — counterfeit strength is one of them.

There is a difference between the dad that is a tower of strength for everyone in his family when it all hits the fan and the guy who has built up so many protective walls around himself that even he doesn’t know how to get past them.

One of them LOOKS like he’s being a strong man. But hiding from life doesn’t make you a tough guy.

The other one lets down his guard, knowing he’s gonna take some hits in life, but also understands that anything worth having in life involves a degree of risk.

While you’re at it, here’s Doug’s latest book:

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
