I wrote this article on fatherhood for the Sojourners blog a few days ago. It was a somewhat difficult piece for me to write because it exposed one of my "many" early fatherhood foibles and illustrates how easy it would have been for me to get this "fathering" thing so wrong so quickly. Thank God for the proverbial "do overs" that we get in life. I guess that the key--in golf and in life--is to take them when you get them.

  1. Good article, Roland--concise.

    Now that my oldest daughter is 14, I've had to remind myself to continue to hug and kiss her as she enters "womanhood." I remember vividly my mother telling me when I was a teenager that her father stopped being physically affectionate with her when she started puberty and that she wished he hadn't. That lesson stuck with me all of these years. I vowed not to make the same mistake when my first daughter was born.
