What does it mean to be a Connected Dad?
Through the every day struggles and relentless demands, Connected Dads find a way to invest in their most important relationships. They also lead themselves first, and set the example for their family by fully embracing three pillars: Fatherhood, Faith & Fitness.
The challenge is great, the rewards even greater. Most of us recognize we fall short every day.
What separates the connected from the disengaged is simply the willingness to get up each day and try again.
Remember, you are not your mistake. Burn the ships, and leave the past behind.
From today forward you can choose to become connected, and reap the rewards for your family and life.

When a dad has clarity in five areas of his fatherhood, he begins to live and act with conviction. Dads, connect with yourself first to reap the most benefits for your family. Do you know your:
Purpose - role as a man/father and the vision you have for your life and family?
People - who is most important in your life and how you add value to them?
Personality - what are your strengths, weaknesses, character and values?
Passion - what lights you up and leaves you fulfilled every day?
Priorities - what you commit time and energy to on a daily basis?
When a dad is grounded by faith he is a refuge for his family when the unpredictability of life hits. He also learns perspective and forgiveness which allow him to let go of the past and show up at his best for those who need him most. Do you know where you find:
Peace - What gives you peace in every circumstance and clarity for today’s decisions?
Hope - What gives you hope for the future and courage to overcome your past?
Strength - Where you find strength in the face of adversity?
Fulfillment - Where your soul and spirit are nourished?

Mental & Emotional Fitness?
