I discovered Rad Dad Tees as I was browsing my Relevant Magazine at work (don’t worry, it is really part of my job description!) I saw a huge ad for Rad Dad Tees and set down the magazine to google them. I am always drawn to the Fatherhood movement – you see, I work at a local non-profit and every day I am reminded how valuable & important fathers are in the lives of their children. Over my three years there, I’ve seen many fathers step up and too many walk away. I was only on their site for a couple minutes when I read their about page and ordered a shirt:
The word ‘dad’ is different than ‘father’. Father is a technical term. If you have any biological offspring, whether you have a relationship with them or not, you are technically a father. There are billions of fathers in the world, but there are far fewer dads. A father is a man who got a woman pregnant. A dad is a father who is present and involved in their kids’ lives- a guy who takes full responsibility as a man to step up and be the best parent he can be. He is proud of his kids, and proud to be a dad – Celebrate Dadhood!
Before you all start asking if I am pregnant, I am not. The shirt was not for Bruce but I know several Rad Dads that are rocking dadhood and needed a Rad Dad Tee. I gathered some of them together – my brother-in-law Matt and Hanley a dear friend of ours. We made smores, played in the backyard, and I tried to capture these rad dads in action!
I am thankful for my dad, for my father-in-law, for the countless dads around me who stuck around, invested, loved, cared for, and believed in me. I am thankful for the dads that my friends & family are becoming. Men who seek the Lord, love their wives, and value their families. Men who truly are Rad Dads.
Celebrate Dadhood with me why don’t you? Send a Rad Dad Tee to the Rad Dad in your life. Encourage him, validate him, forgive him, and inspire him.
