This week’s for the Dads Doing It Right series I wanted to focus on some dads who are leading by example. These fathers are teaching their kids how to pay it forward and to follow their dreams. From making someone laugh and spreading joy to those who need it you will enjoy these stories. Make sure you follow them on social media. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their site in the comment section below.
Johan Naranjo – Bringing Joy To Those Who Need It
We want to leave this world better for our kids. One way to do that is by paying it forward and lead by example. I have know Johan for years. We worked together in radio. Now Johan and his wife, Abby are raising their daughter the right way. Johan works at Bridgeway Senior Healthcare. He creates fun activities and events for the seniors. To see what Johan is doing right now is amazing. His daughter will see the work that her dad is doing. She will see he is leading by example and caring for others. Well done Johan!
Christopher Persley – Team Persley
Christopher has a website that shares his fatherhood journey. He has been writing stories that talks about raising his daughter, Pepper. He has encouraged his daughter to follow her passions. She started up a site where she interviews basketball stars. Pepper interviewed WNBA stars like Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird. She has become a seasoned journalist. It is great to see Pepper interview top names in the basketball world with poise and she asks insightful questions. Christopher is beaming with pride to see his daughter flourish in this arena. Follow Team Persley to check out Pepper’s interview.
John Stump – Service To Our Country
Speaking of service, my buddy since seventh grade, John Stump is in the Navy. John is a great friend and the Godfather to my oldest daughter. He has been in the Navy since college and I am thankful for his service. There are many lessons that John can pass on to his daughters from his time in the Navy. He is parenting my example not only by putting his family first, but our country. Thank you John and all the military men and women!
Victor Aragon – Running For Kids
I have met a ton of great dads here in this parenting space. One dad that jumps into my mind about leading by example is Victor. Victor has done a lot of fundraising for St. Jude. He raises money by running for different causes. Instead of walking the walk, he is running to pay it forward. What a great act of service he is teaching his kids. Keep up the great work Victor.
