In honor of Father's Day here in the USA I thought this week's question should be about dad. So what is the best or most important thing you learned from your father? I'm the youngest in my family and am the only boy, so my father and I are pretty close. He was active in my raising and wanted very much to prepare me for life. Besides my spiritual foundation, I think the most valuable lesson my dad taught me was to work hard and play hard. He made me get a job when I young and through this I learned the importance of developing a good work ethic. We spent a lot of time doing fun things together like camping, fishing, playing sports, etc. and through this I learned that recreation and family time is extremely valuable. Now that I have kids of my own I try my best to teach these same lessons.
