Why are fathers important to their children? What are joys and challenges of fathers? Statistics tell us that children with involved fathers are more confident, better able to deal with frustration, better able to gain independence, and their own identity. More likely to mature into compassionate adults, more likely to have a higher self-esteem, more sociable, more secure, and less likely to show signs of depression. Yes fathers are important and they are part of God’s plan for the family. Today I’ll visit with Dave Powell, the production director of Family Vision Media. We’ll learn about his family and talk with him about being a father, and we’ll talk with his son Jackson.
