This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right series I wanted to put the spotlight on some dedicated dads. These dads are running blogs or dad groups that are looking to not only be great dads, but inspire and help other dads. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below.
Rick Luch – Dedicated Dads
Rick’s father was left with four young boys. Two of them were still in diapers. For Rick, his dad did his best to take care of us. Now the four boys are all grown up into men. Two of those men are left as single fathers. Single fathers in need. Rick sees this as a growing epidemic and it’s about time we reach out to them and help all single fathers. That is why he created Dedicated Dads to help other dads out there. Check out his site here.
Travis Mullen – The Generalist Father
Travis Mullen it hosting interviews that intersect fatherhood, theology, investing, art, and the outdoors. In a world that claims total connection, men are feeling more and more disconnected. While the digital infrastructure has amped up our workloads and responsibilities to a breakneck pace, we find ourselves always saying we are busy, or life is full. Yet most men are not connecting in with the things that bring them life. Things like quality time with their families, doing the things they love to do or to create, and getting out into nature for a reset. In addition you can find that your drive for success and accomplishment leaves us unfulfilled, tired, and lacking. Join Travis has he has conversations about finding meaning in families, careers, creative endeavors, and outdoor adventures.
