Preparing for Fatherhood
About Preparing for Fatherhood
So you’re going to be a father. How do you process that news? How do you get ready? Whether the news came as a complete surprise or it was long awaited, it probably has left you with lots of questions. Questions about yourself, your ability to be a good dad, and how to help with all the work that comes along with parenting. It might not feel real quite yet, but the more it sinks in, the more overwhelmed you feel at the responsibility awaiting you—not to mention the ups and downs of the pregnancy and birth!
Deepak Reju, a family pastor and father of five, understands the challenges you are facing and offers helpful, concrete wisdom about how to process the news, care for your wife, and prepare for the little one’s arrival. And he will guide you in how to care for your new family in dependence on your perfect heavenly Father.
