If you let it, dads can have a tremendous impact on their children’s lives. It is estimated that 43 percent of Christians make a decision to follow Christ by the age of 13, and nearly 64% make a decision by age 18. Conclusion? The time that children spend with and under the care of their parents is a pivotal season of their lives.
Dads are charged to be the spiritual leaders of the home. Think of Joshua and his famous line about following God even when it was hard: “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”—Joshua 24:15 NIV
Those words are just as important today as they were thousands of years ago. There are so many things that can distract us, pull us away, or otherwise tempt us from following God. Your kids need their dad to be a positive force, showing them the path to faith in Christ.
Remembering to continually put the things of Christ first can be tough. Maybe you or a dad in your life needs a Keeper of the Faith Dad T-shirt. Everyone needs a little encouragement from time to time. This Dad tee in bright red with its cool winged graphic will remind fathers of their faith and how important it is to keep it. Your kids will see their dad wearing the shirt too, and they will know that staying strong in the faith is important to him.
In the past few years, a movement to encourage and uplift fathers has been spurred on by the movie Courageous. In the movie, four dads examine their relationships with their children and find them to be lacking. Kerusso has created a line of Courageous Dad T-shirts to daily remind dads how important it is to have a relationship with their children.
New dads feel a mix of emotions, pure joy, and the overwhelming responsbility that comes along with it. Raising a child is a huge responsibility, but God can give us the strength to do all things. A new dad might enjoy our Be Strong T-shirt based on Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (NKJV). This will be a testimony and a reminder not only to you, but to all your family and anyone who comes into contact with you.
Did you know that it is estimated that the average graphic T-shirt is seen and read 3,000 times? Think about how many times your child will see it. They could be reading that T-shirt and saying, I want what my dad has: a faith in Jesus. Check out our whole line of T-shirts and see what kind of impact you can have as a dad sharing his love of Christ.
