What Bella Thinks Makes a Good Dad

This past week I was working on a sermon for Father’s Day when my daughter Bella walked into the room and asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was writing a sermon about being a great dad. Then I asked her if she could help me by telling me what she thinks a good dad would do. Little did I know she would take me so seriously! She sat down with me and compiled a list of 22 things that a good dad does. I share it here for your enjoyment!

  1. he’s helping
  2. he’s caring
  3. he preaches
  4. he works
  5. he does the dishes
  6. he drives
  7. he reads the Bible
  8. he uses the phone
  9. he shops
  10. he cooks supper
  11. he massages mom
  12. he plays
  13. he goes on daddy dates
  14. he prays
  15. he pays for things
  16. he plays pokemon games
  17. he goes to the park
  18. he waters the garden
  19. he goes to church
  20. he meets new friends
  21. he gives hugs and kisses
  22. he gives medicine

Not a bad list for a 6 year old! Now that I have an official job description I’d better get myself to work. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
