Subversion of the Family | Time to Talk About Fathers

I’m tired of fathers getting a bum rap. This needs to be said.

Author: Shelly Sangrey

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

  1. You made a great video! You were spot on with all you had to say, and I wish the world could hear this video of yours, because we need to go back to the simplicity of life. We need to go back to the simplicity of home, and having both parents actively present in their children’s lives. I truly appreciate what you stated, as everyone should hear it. We are living in some trying times and I truly think our society needs to change for the better. We need to go back to how a family was meant to be and not take our spouses for granted. Our children look up to us, they learn from us, and we need them to know the love and devotion that God created families to have. Society has no problem teaching unchristian values and our children see this everywhere, whether it’s the news, media, everyday living, etc.
    Thank you for speaking about the importance of fathers!


  2. As a mother of all boys and a wife who thinks her husband, her dad and her dad-in-law are pretty great, I am glad to see someone espousing the value of fathers. Something once accepted without question (which was not good for some families) is now something that needs defending. I think the problem with any social movement is when it becomes expected or presented as the only right choice rather than just that – a choice. We all have unique roles to play in this world and should be able to make those choices with our families and with God and do what is best. For me, that is having my husband working from home so my boys are around him every day and they see how mothers and fathers respectfully interact as well as how we all work as a cohesive unit to get things done and to have a rich and fulfilling life. Thanks again for talking about things people are afraid to with fairness and honesty.
