Be Intentional About Your Legacy

During this second half of my year-long journey of lessons from The MANual, I’m including some occasional posts on God Buddy-related topics.

This week’s post comes from the National Center for Fathering which helps us think more deeply about leaving a strong legacy as a man and as a father. It includes two examples of legacy dads, along with some questions to ask yourself about the legacy you’re creating with your family.

You can check out the other posts in NCF’s Resource Center. They include tons of Research and information on Trends in Fathering, The Extent of Fatherlessness, The Consequences of Fatherlessness, and describe the Effects of FatherFULLness.

Feel free to share my GodBuddy posts with anyone who might find them interesting. You can also subscribe to receive an email at every new post.
