KEEPiNG iT REAL
I didn't grow up knowing my dad.
He and my mom divorced when I was only two and he wasn't part of our lives.
My mother never remarried until I was an adult.
My grandfather was the father-figure in my life...
and I am so incredibly lucky for that.
Like so many of these Father's Day Compendium books referred to...
he really was my HERO...in so many different ways.

A great Dad is a man who can teach his children with compassion and in a positive way. I'm so thankful for my Dad and my husband, who is a wonderful Dad to our three little boys.

Being an exceptional Father requires a man to lead his children by example; showing strength, vulnerability, happiness, sadness, compassion, empathy, determination, drive, love, and above all INTEGRITY.

An exceptional dad to me is a dad that doesn't mind spending an extra hour on a project because his little helpers want to be just like him.

AZLB June 1, 2011 at 11:45 PM  

I would love to have the his life journal...what a great keepsake!

{ SHE } June 2, 2011 at 4:02 AM

I would have to say that the comment above by Renee literally takes the words out of my mouth! I feel so blessed to have a father who led his life just like that.

{ SHE } June 2, 2011 at 4:09 AM  

My favorite product hands down is the book "She" by Kobi Yamada. I am inspired by it daily as it sits right in the center of a shelf in my studio. It's brilliant and beautiful!

Traci Lancaster,  June 6, 2011 at 1:16 PM  

I am absolutely IN LOVE with all of compendium's stuff! I think all of us need a boost everyday and what a gorgeous way to display it too.

Traci Lancaster,  June 6, 2011 at 1:22 PM  

What makes a man an exceptional dad is becoming an active part of child's life, not because of chance but because of choice.

Steph,  June 6, 2011 at 3:12 PM  

I "like" the Live Inspired page on facebook!

Steph,  June 6, 2011 at 3:13 PM  

I love your page on facebook.....awesome things!

Steph,  June 6, 2011 at 3:14 PM  

My favorite are the lunchbox cards with the windows...my kid's love to see them in their lunch box. Their friends even ask if their mom can send extra! ;-)

Steph,  June 6, 2011 at 3:17 PM  

I love that my husband has taken the extra time and effort to ensure a relationship with our children....being deployed can take it's toll on any family and it's a tough job to make that relationship last and work. He's earned more than one gold star as a daddy!! He's also very supportive of me being "daddy" while he's away....

Dorangela June 6, 2011 at 9:58 PM  

I am a fan of pen n paper flowers

Dorangela June 6, 2011 at 10:00 PM  

My step father is an exceptional father because he stepped in and became a father to me and my sister and has continued to be a great father and now the best grandfather to our children.
