This episode features the Dad-Daughter duo, Becky Thompson and Dr. Mark Pitts, co-authors of Midnight Dad Devotional: 100 Devotions and Prayers to Connect Dads Just Like You to the Father.

Dr. Meg & Guests Becky Thompson & Dr. Mark Pitts (Part 1)

Dr. Mark Pitts explains how fathering seems to have moved from being rooted in relationship and connection with their kids to becoming more of a utilitarian role – provider and protector, sans any real relationship. A father’s role is often scaled down to tasks – disciplinarian, driver, coach, homework checker, money lender. Yet Dr. Pitts is finding that more and more men desire a return to being in true relationship with their children and they want to know how they can develop a deeper connection and long-lasting bond with their kids.

Dr. Meg & Guests Becky Thompson & Dr. Mark Pitts (Part 2)

Becky Thompson and Dr. Mark Pitts share further insights from Midnight Dad Devotional, explaining how the daily devotions give men a sense of connection with other fathers, strength for the day ahead, wisdom from the Bible for tough situations, affirmation of the importance of their role, and the reassurance that God is with them, no matter what.
