Last night my cool, hip and happenin' 16-year-old son asked if I would give him and his wife mariage advice when he is married. I told him, "Of course." Now whether or not his wife will want it or not is up to her, which I respect, and it will be between them to craft their life together.

I pray that all men will rise to the challenge of this sacred calling of Fatherhood.
