Postcards from my dad: John

In a time when families are broken down, blended up and statistically you are more likely to be missing a solid father figure in your life, we decided to ask some of our friends who we think make great dads, spiritually, biologically, to the church, and to the student generation, to write to you. So just in case your dad never got to speak into your life in the way you'd hoped, here's a postcard from dad to you. 

 

One of life's challenges is working out what is a big deal and what really isn't, even when there is a lot of noise about it. 

I would really encourage you to be yourself, to keep heart connection with the people you love, to enjoy life, to revel in every opportunity (well, nearly!) to learn and explore and discover, and do some work occasionally!

When we make these things central to our lives, it can keep us rooted and secure, help us deal with stress and give us perspective.
