Daddy Donut Day

Each week may seem only about ministry work for the leader's and pastor's family. Girls growing up in daddy's home may feel neglected and isolated day-to-day with only having a daddy to return home carrying out only discipline. Daddy becomes more like a man a temp agency hired to appease the family, rather than a loving daddy, holding, hugging, kissing, discussing, patient and leading daddy. Daddy leaders need to re-define ministry work to involve their personal family like including a day of the week committed to his own kids.

Daddy Donut Day has become a mainstay in our home over the last four years. When our girls turned at least one or able to eat a donut they go with daddy on Saturday mornings. Using the same local coffee shop and donut shop allows me to train our two little girls how to get to know other people, stand in line, clean up their mess, say hi to other locals and trust daddy desires to be with them. As the girls chomp down on donuts, daddy reads to them the Big Picture Story Bible and library books they choose each week. Our girls explode with joy each Saturday morning after their continual questions during the week of "is it Saturday yet?"

A daddy's love for people in ministry is an overflow of the love he has for his own family. Daddy's in ministry, love your family! Sound familiar? God's love for his eternal, heavenly family overflows to love the earthly family (e.g. adoption; Eph 1:5).
