Father's Day Giveaway!
WINNER: SANDY JONES
Father’s Day is right around the corner!!
I want to share 3 important pictures of my father and I.
1. When I was little and I learned that he would become the most important man in my life. I remember pretending to be asleep so he would carry me to bed and standing on his feet while we danced and he’d always give me all his pocket change :)
2. Right after he got out of surgery to remove cancer from his prostate.
(He is 2 years cancer-free! Thank you Jesus!)
3. My father proudly wearing his Veteran’s hat. I am very proud that my father served 20 faithful years to our country. In fact, he missed my birth by one day (he was flying home from Vietnam).
My dad is a HUGE life-long San Francisco 49er fan, and for every birthday, Christmas and Father’s Day he got some sort of trinket. Whether it was pajamas, autographed jersey or some other tchotchke to remind him of his beloved 9ers.
One day, I stood in his Man Cave and stared in amazement that he had wall-to-wall-to-ceiling- to floor (YES! 49er carpet!!) memorabilia. This man did NOT need nor have space for not one more Joe Montana Booblehead!
That’s when I decided to get him a Bible. Not just any Bible, one that I knew he’d pick up.

My favorite dad memory is when my dad wouldn't mind seeking our cravings when he knew "we were on it" even if it was 1 am. Like that summer night when I was craving ice cream at 1 am. He took me to the closest gas station just to be bummed because they were cleaning the machines. So he took me to the next, and the next, and I finally got my ice cream. Then he drove us to a closed off Fwy they were building (bridge) we sat there and enjoyed our ice cream. I felt a little scared because 1) I'm sure we were not suppose to be there. 2) the bridge shook a little every time cars would pass on the opposite side. but oh boy we talked and talked and laughed for a long time....Love my dad! I also have a great husband!

I don’t have a relationship with my dad but the man in my life that has been a great inspiration is my sister husband.

He always feared the lord but this year he has given his life to Jesus. Would love to win to gift him this Bible

My dad was the most awesome man because he loved my mother. They never fought in front of all seven of us kids, they took us to church faithfully every Sunday, he worked as a machinist in a factory, then came home, ate supper, and worked on our 160 acre farm. He made planting our half-acre garden fun, and I will never forget when I was in about 5th grade, I was tasked with hoeing weeds out of the cantelope bed and I hoed more cantelope leaves than weeds. He took me out that evening when he was home from work and showed me what I had done. I apologized and he said, "it's okay, I guess I need to do a better job of showing you next time." Now that's a good dad! Thanks for giving me a chance to share a memory of my wonderful dad, and thanks for a wonderful giveaway.

My favorite memory of my husband was when we moved into a new how with long, wide staircase. The kids said it was high enough to slide down. My usually reserved husband took a mattress and used it as a sled to show the kids how he slid down snowy hills of Michigan as kid. He went so fast that he almost crashed into the dining table below. After a few furniture adjustments the whole family took turns sliding down “Holcombe Hill”.

I have never had the privilege to have a father in my life. It was and still is something that I have always wanted. I will never be a Daddy's girl. For those who have been blessed to have your Father's be a part of your lives you all are truly blessed.

My father was not around but my older brother was.. he dropped out of high school to help my mother, he has been like a dad to me and I am so grateful for what he always did for us. He worked with a plumber and learned a lot and now being the wonderful man he is he got his plumbing license and now has his own business. I am very proud of my brother! 💙

My dad has always been very special to me. One of my favorite childhood memories was as a little girl on a farm in Saskatchewan at harvest time seeing the lights of the combine out in the field at night going around the field and knowing my dad was out there working hard to get the wheat in and would soon be home. It somehow made me feel safe, loved and protected.

I have not heard of this Bible - it sounds like a good read. My father died when he was 52 years old - he had just retired after 31 years of service working at GM and moved to the cottage he built in Tawas, Michigan. My dad went smelt dipping through the night - came home, went to bed, and died of a massive heart-attack before the sun came up. I miss him very much. My favorite memory of my dad was when he played the guitar and sang What a Friend we have in Jesus. He was a natural born musician who played many instruments [the mandolin, violin, piano, and guitar] were some of the instruments he played - he was self taught.

My favorite memory with my husband is when we found out we were having a little boy. My husband is a disabled veteran and we were told we couldn't get pregnant. Not only did we get pregnant on our own but I was giving him a son. Our son was born prematurely and was only 3 pounds at birth. I got to watch my husband's faith grow through so many challenges. We weren't sure he was going to survive. Many prayers and miracles later we have a perfectly healthy lil boy. My husband lives to be this boys daddy.

When I was 16, I was going through my very first breakup & was so heart broken. My daddy set down beside me & told me about being married before mom. He told me how it hurt to lose someone you love. And he told me that it does get better & the hurt goes away and then you find someone else to love. He told me there would be many more loves in my life, until I found the one person I couldn't live without. He said that's when you really know what love is.

My favorite memory with my Dad is when I was little, and he would gently brush my hair. My mom would yank the hair, but he was very gentle. The way he did my hair would give me goosebumps and get me sleepy. It felt special--at the time, I was his only daughter.

I am submitting my husband as a great and proud father! He is daddy to my three girls and papa to my two grands. My husband has been a hard working military member for many years, not making a lot of money, but giving his family love, time and experiences. My husband, Darin retired from the military several years back. However he still worked for the government. He still deployed. I remember he was gone for a year and had just returned. He shortly went into cardiac arrest. He was placed on the transplant list and 16 months later received a donor heart by a true hero. My husband just celebrated his 2 year heart anniversary. He has never acted ill. He has always stayed strong for my girls through it all. He even returned back to work full time after 10 weeks of receiving his heart. Praise be to God for my God-fearing father and husband.

Both of my parents had to work in order to put food on the table. We were lucky to have a car, but dad would take the bus to and from work. Every day I would wait to see dad walking down a hill 4 blocks away. As soon as I saw him, I would run to meet him and walk home the rest of the way with him. He was a janitor and regular fixer up guy at work. He would always have some trinket for me that he said he found. It could be a plastic ring or even a marble. Sometimes he found pennies. He would have something every day for me. This memory is so vivid to me, it was my time with dad. I sure do miss him. He passed over 10 years ago from cancer.

My dad had many adventures growing up..Born in the United States he lived overseas for most of his life. He lived in Iran, Malta, Scotland and many more places. My grandfather was an oilfield man and it required them to travel. A memory my father told me about growing up... it was the 4th of July at the time they were living in Iran and him and some of the Boy Scouts were out lighting off fireworks... they had wandered away from their campsite boundaries and they were surrounded by Iran military jeeps with huge guns pointed right at them!! They were escorted back to their camp spot and told to stay away from where they were. I think I would be sooooo scared but he said he wasn’t too scared. I would love to visit the places he lived!

One of my fave dad memories is just hanging out at a restaurant before family came for his birthday dinner. It was nice to just chit chat with him my step mom and brother. Quite family time is always my fave thing. My dad is a hardworking. Funny kind man. He raised me and my brother on his own after losing my mom years ago. One of my fave memories of my husband is watching him make breakfast whenever we go camping. He's always the first up getting the fire going fornus and the last to bed making sure me and our boys are taken care of first. He's a better man than he thinks he is. I want to win this for him. Good luck everyone! Love reading everyones memories.

This would be perfect for my hubby. When we first met he brought me back to the Lord. I've just recently rekindled my passion and picked up 2 new Bibles for myself. One for study and one for journaling. I woke up to this text message Monday from my hubby "Good morning my love! I hope you slept amazingly. I'm sorry for not being who I am meant to be. I've had quite a soul stirring morning, I've been apathetic to life, especially my spiritual walk, but that's gonna change. I want to find that passion I used to have, I thank God for waking me up and you being a bringing of that change". I cried the best tears of happiness. I'd love nothing more than to be able to gift him this wonderful gift of the Lord's word!

My dad (and mom) have been gone for many, many years. He had a great sense of humor, never met a stranger, and loved to aggravate us girls and our mom. One night at the dinner table, I was probably about 10, he started a game of swapping the first few letters of a phrase. We were all laughing at the outcomes and having a great time. That is until he said "funny chuckle"...yes it came out "chunny **ckle"...oh my gosh, my mom got so mad at him! He wasn't a bit phased and proceeded to repeat it! Good times! I sure miss them both!

My dad has been there for me when I needed him. (Even others tell him he shouldn’t be) He is currently full time care giver of my mom (who was diagnosed with dementia about 6 months ago) and when you talk with him you can tell how much it takes a toll on him... he tries to keep thing light.. on my fondest memories of him was growing up and how he would try and hide our (my brother and me) main Christmas gifts.. he would have us running all over the place to find them... that and he was always supportive of anything we wanted to do even if he thought it was stupid idea at the time...

My hope for my husband is he survives being in a house with me and our 4 daughters once they reach their teenage years, they are already pros at making us crazy!! But we love all 4 of them so much, right now their ages are 6,5,3, and 7 months.

Favorite dad memory, my husband when our first child was born by c-section. They gave him to my husband and he started weeping he was so overcome with emotion!

I don’t teally have a relationship with my father. But my husband is showing me what a good father should be and what I had always wished for myself and my future children. We lost our first child, Mallory Grace at five months gestation on 7-15-14. He was so loving and strong through such a tragic time. There is something so special about loving a child you can not hold. He never shied away from talking about her or telling someone “ yes we do have a child”. Now five years later, he will be celebrating his first Father’s Day with a child in his arms, Ryley Hope was born on 2-18-19. The love he has for his girls in always putting them first and talking about them any chance he gets, makes my heart so happy. I may not have had a good dad, but, the Lord has certainly blessed me with an amazing husband and father for our children.

My favorite Dadish memory was with my 35 years old brother, he had cancer and was in final stage when we decided to celebrate his last Father’s Day. He did his big effort to walk and be there, all my nephews nieces and kids sang and danced a Mexican son “hoy tengo que decirte papa” could be translated like i want to tell you Dad. And also sang him Amigo a Roberto Carlos song; (My friend) because this song definitely describes him. It was a very emotive day. My brother passed two months later, almost seven years ago. :’(

My dad... my dad was not a normal dad. In 1986 he was driving his motorcycle with no helmet. He hit a dirt patch and slid 75 feet on his head. My dad died 4 times that day. My dad made it that day but he had 1/4 of his brain removed. My daddy lived until February 17, 2019.

We lost my mom a year ago April my dad and I were with her when she took her last breath, I can’t say it’s my favorite memory obviously but it is one etched in my mind and is a pretense to my favorite memories and times with my father now. At least twice a month he and I go on a date, my husband stays home and it is just my time with my dad. We have always had a wonderful relationship and this is making memories as an adult. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful father
6/15/2019 04:19:53 pm
My favorite piece of my husband is his faith. When we first got married he jumped into fathering my 2 kids. No hesitation. Through our struggle with infertility he always said God would handle it. When we lost 2 babies his faith held us both up. Finally Abby came and she was perfection. Then the struggle again came while trying for another baby. We lost 2 babies and my husband never lost faith. He never gave up. He

I remember being about 4 years old ans attempting to dress myself and my father taught me how to easily put on my tshirt. It helped me be more independent and gave me the ability to dress myself. He died when i was 22 due to clogged arteries and with his death I learned to life my best life as nothing is promised.

My dad worked nights most of the time I was growing up. On Friday night on his way home, he would stop at Joe's Donuts (family run business) and get a couple dozen fresh, hot donuts. I have wonderful memories of being allowed to stay up late on Friday and have hot donuts and cold milk with Daddy.

Since my dad died when I was young, I am opting a dad joke as I hear them daily from my husband.

My dad passed away four years ago, but his silly jokes and positive attitude as he fought prostate and bone cancer were the reason I was able to stay so positive when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. He used to joke that his family was so poor that if you were in the barn when they called dinner, you might as well just sit down and cry. Also, he said you'd get your hands smacked for running your bread around the top of the peanut butter jar more than once. He had a crazy sense of humor, and my grandma would just shake her head at him!

My favorite Memory of my dad would be when he was my coach when my daughter was born. I know to some that sounds strange but to me it was perfect. We have always been close and the older I get the closer we are. I talk to my dad almost every night. He stood and/or sat by my side for 24 hours helping me through intensive back labor and then finally delivering my daughter drug free. I remembering him telling me that he was so proud that I never hollered or screamed one time while I was delivering her. I love my dad with all my heart and I am and I'll always be his little girl.
