Key Quotes


  • 8:45 - “Parenting all girls, and my girls are interested in things that on my own I would not be interested in, but because they're interested in it, I'm interested in it.”
  • 9:42 - “Working on yourself and your marriage will make you a better dad.”
  • 26:31 - “Your greatest joys are ultimately going to become your heaviest responsibilities or the responsibilities that seem like the biggest challenges in your life… Celebrate responsibility, knowing that it's refining your character, knowing that it's strengthening you as much as it may feel like it steals from you in a season, steals capacity or steals energy, it just returns to you in so many more ways than it takes from you."
