Ron: Okay, you’ve already celebrated Mother’s Day and now I’m wondering what do you have planned for Father’s Day?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Now I will admit right off the bat that today’s feature is a little self-serving. I, too, am a dad. And I really enjoy being in the spotlight on Father’s Day. You know, it’s interesting, one poll showed that most people feel that moms get more attention on Mother’s Day than dads do on Father’s Day. I wonder why that is. And I also wonder if stepdads get as much attention as biological dads?

Either way, the good news is we men we’re not that complicated. What would really mean a lot to us on Father’s Day are a few simple words: “I appreciate you for….” Those four words would make our day. We can live on that for oh, about a year. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
