We Learn A Lot From Our Dads

By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

My dad taught me how to drive a tractor and a nail. He taught me how to start a motherless calf on a bucket by using my fingers, how to set irrigation pipe in the hot San Joaquin Valley sun, and how to ride a horse. Over the years, many of his lessons have come to my aid.

We learn a lot from our dads, and even though most fathers are kind and loving, they are fallible humans in need of a savior.

Just like us.

No father on earth compares to our heavenly Father with His unconditional love, and He would do anything to show us that love. As a matter of fact, He’s done everything.

As we pause to appreciate our dads and other life-influencers this Father’s Day, what lesson do you hold most dear, whether from dad or an uncle or someone else? Leave a comment below and tell me how they’ve impacted your life.

As a father has compassion on his children,

so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him;

Psalm 103:13


Widowed rancher Josiah Hanacker will do whatever it takes to keep his family together in “The Wrangler’s Woman.”

  1. I thank God that I had a great Dad. We always knew that he loved us and was always there for us. I’m also thankful to have a wonderful Father in Law that is still with us. It is comforting to know that we are loved. But if that’s not the case, we have a Heavenly Father that is perfect in love. We just have to accept that love through his Son Jesus. He will bless us and meet our needs. I pray God blesses Fathers today.
