Notes from a Developing Dad: The Laughs, Loves, Learnings and Losses of a Well Meaning but Overmatched Man. by Joe Medler

Follow along with me as I fumble through the first few years of fatherhood in real time. A father to two young boys I’ve been documenting the transformations, the stumbles, the minor successes that resonate like world changing victories and the hysterical fails that remind me that children are literally made to survive our shortcomings. Hell, they can even thrive in the face of them.Before becoming a dad I had no idea how it would change me. I tended to think of it all as what I’d be losing. Sure, I was excited to meet my kids, but I was worried about a life choice that would alter every moment of the rest of my life. So when my first arrived and I fell in love with him, I knew it was time to strap in for a crazy ass ride. There are moments early on when it’s all so much that your walls come down and there’s beauty, unbelievable love and sheer terror all around at all times. I knew I had to write it out. I didn’t want to ever lose these moments to time and future priorities. So I did, I wrote it out. In personal essays documenting my changes, their changes and our changes. Some is funny as hell, some is heartbreakingly tender and some is sharply observant. All of it is written with candor and love. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for taking the time to be here, now.

Me First!: A Modern Day Fable about Service, Scouting, and Self-Esteem by Will McNeil and Danny McNeil

Me First! tells the story of Baden, a selfish eagle who annoys friends, family, and neighbors as he always demands to be first. Baden’s behavior makes others reject him, so that he ends up feeling sad and lonely. He is helped by a group of glowing, golden eagles who serve others in the School of the Woods. These scouts help Baden to discover the rewards of putting others first through cheerful service. Baden goes on a personal journey that leads him to help others and feel good about himself.

Me First! was written by two brothers, one who recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and the other who currently is working on his Eagle Scout project. As the boys were born and raised in West Virginia, images of Appalachia are evident throughout the story, along with symbols representing the principles of scouting. Me First! is an excellent gift for young girls and boys (ages 5 to 9) who are starting their own scouting journeys. Parents, teachers, church volunteers, and scout leaders will enjoy the included Search and Find” activity where children look for scouting images hidden in the beautiful illustrations. Within this colorful and humorous fable is a touching message about values, particularly the importance of serving others.

When More is Not Enough: How to stop giving your kids what they want and give them what they need by Amy Sullivan

When more is not enough, what is?

Amy L. Sullivan believes no one loves harder and more completely than children. She also believes selfies, cell phones, must-have tech gadgets, and the sparkly allure of possessions lull kids into an insatiable desire for more.

When More is Not Enough celebrates the idea of more: more prayers cried out, more time spent together, more use of our talents, more interest in strangers, more forgiveness of hurt, more of what Jesus taught us each day of His life. This book focuses on helping children grow generous hearts, tender spirits, and a deep compassion for others.

Filled with biblical reasoning, real-life anecdotes, practical resources, and start-this-very-second activities, When More is Not Enough is for families who are ready to move from seeing generosity as a series of tasks and instead, turn it into a way life.
