Becoming Life Partners

We’ve been celebrating love lately because we know it is a solution to many of the world’s problems. You saw it in The Love Collection, but what you haven’t seen is the way it has been working in our personal lives. Yvette’s love has changed me in many ways, but the biggest change has been in who I am as a father.

We all have relationships with our fathers, some of it good, some of it bad, but what does it mean to be a good father? I have struggled with this so much, and I’ve realized that becoming a good father is just that; becoming. It is working every day to know your children and yourself a little better than you did the day before. It’s nurturing as fiercely as you protect.

It’s learning and unlearning, doing your best, and sometimes falling short. It’s knowing your limits as much as it is pushing them. Sometimes it’s saying yes when you want to say no, and other times it’s saying no when you want to say yes. It’s a skill I’m refining over and over again as my and my family’s needs change. A huge part of becoming a good father is love. Not just the love you have for your children, but the love your spouse has for you.

This next chapter in Beleaf in Fatherhood is called The Good Father Season, and we can’t wait to laugh with you, cry with you, and share with you each moment of triumph, discomfort, exploration, and discovery we’ve experienced in this season of growth, and see how you’ll grow, too. This is my journey to becoming a good father, and my children are my teachers.
