Happy Father’s Day dads.

As fathers, we are the force that creates either calm or rocky waters. We are the foundations of our home. It is our duty to maintain consistency from day to day and make our family feel loved and safe.

I’m not perfect but I’m learning the power and influence being a dad holds and it’s been the best experience of my life.
