The 21-Day Dad’s Challenge (book review)

Next to being a husband, there is nothing I love more than being a Dad! I take my responsibility as a father very seriously, so that’s why I am always trying to grow in this area of my life. I just finished a 3-week journey through The 21-Day Dad’s Challenge by Carey Casey, and I am a better Dad for it.

As the name implies, this is designed to be read one day at a time over 21 days. At the end of each day’s lesson there are challenges to help Dads put into practice what they’ve just read. These challenges, I discovered, cannot be accomplished in a single day; they are intended to become lifelong habits. At the end of several of the chapters is a QR code that takes you to a short 2-minute video by Dr. Greg Smalley, who serves as a cheerleader/motivator to help Dads get moving.

I appreciated “the little things” that this book showed Dads could do right away. The principles in this book are not hard to implement, but they are simple steps that any Dad can do. At least, any Dad who wants to step up his fathering skills!

I loved it! I think lots of other Dads will too.

I am a Tyndale book reviewer.

    Some of my favorite quotes from this book:
    “Ephesians 6:4 says, ‘Fathers do not exasperate your children.’ …Dads who don’t have fun with their kids will exasperate them.” –Carey Casey

    “Work as hard at your parenting as you do in the office or factory. Give your kids as much effort as you give your employer.” –Tony Dungy

    “What’s your plan for your kids? Do you have one yet? If not, begin to construct one today. If you don’t have a plan and execute it successfully, the world already has one designed. It’s shrewdly and precisely laid out for every kid on the globe. Remember this: Great dads have great plans for their kids.” –Jim Moore

    “Dads: It’s never too late to start. It’s always too early to quit.” –Joe White
