Encourage a Father this Father's Day
As you know, Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th. I know that all of you are not father’s, but you each know a father. This week, I want to challenge you to encourage a father. This could be done by a kind word, a Bible verse, an inspiring quote (see below), a note, a prayer, a hug, a smile, a high five, or a sports guy chest bump. You decide, but find a father who deserves or needs to be encouraged this week.
