When we asked the wives of the Dad Tired community what they thought was one of the best ways a husband can be the spiritual leader of their home, without question, the number one answer was "To pray with us". Wives desperately want their husbands to lead them and their kids in prayer. The truth is, however, most guys don't pray with their wife and kids. Some feel awkward, some have no idea how, and some are fearful of what their wife might want to pray about; worried that it could lead to bringing up issues they've been trying to push under the rug. In this episode, join host Jerrad Lopes as he addresses the likely reason you aren't praying with your family, and more importantly, what it would look like to practically step up in this way. As a bonus, make sure to stick around to the very end of the episode where Jerrad addresses specific questions about prayer from the Dad Tired community.
Feeling stuck on how to lead your family in a family devotional time? You’re definitely not alone. Most Christian dads desire to be the spiritual leader of their home, few know where to begin. The thought of planning out a whole family devotional time can feel intimidating. On this week’s episode, join host Jerrad Lopes as he walks dads through a Biblical framework of discipleship and what the scriptures have to say about family devotional time.

Raising kids has always been hard, but I’m convinced it has to be a little bit harder in 2018.
Twenty years ago, as a child, I had three major influences in my life: my mom, my friends from school, and Disney movies. I won’t go as far as to say that my mother had it easier than I do when raising children, but I will say that the amount of outside influences that she tried to manage was significantly less before the internet showed up.
Each week we feature a new dad from our community, in a segment called #FeaturedFatherFriday.
