Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
I am not a Bible scholar, nor an author, nor nor have any formal Bible training. I am simply just an average guy that loves The Lord. I’ve been a born again Christian since I was 17 years old when my wife (Maren) and high school sweetheart and I got saved together. We’ve been happily married since 1991 and have 3 children, Ryan, Kyle & Evan.
This website was birthed out of the love for our children. As they grew into adults, went off to college and leaving us as empty nesters, I began to send them words of encouragement by emailing them some scripture references or something that I read to help them through their days. Over time, the frequency got to be more and more until it turned into an almost daily routine.
I come from a wonderful home. My mom and dad love the Lord and have always shown love, care and compassion for me and my brothers. They have been a true example to me and shown me many lessons of grace as I grew up. I know that this is not true for many. There are some that come from abusive homes or some that do not have a dad at all in their lives. For this reason, I have decided to share the words that I have been sharing with my children so others may be blessed as well. I try to keep each posting to a short 5-10 minute read. Some days are longer than others. But I believe each one has little lessons that we can gleam from God’s Word.
DadSpeak was birthed by simply loving my kids and wanting to share some nuggets that I have learned through God’s Word. His Word is rich with insight into how we should live. I try to share from a father’s perspective to pass on the little bit of wisdom that I have gleaned over my 50+ years. I pray that you will find this website refreshing to your soul and will help you on the journey of living by God’s truth in your life.
