All men, young and old, need to see the newly released DVD, “COURAGEOUS.” The subtitle of DVD is, “Honor Begins At Home.” One of the biggest problems we have in America is absentee fathers. Even if the father is in the home, the problem can be he is emotionally detached from his wife and children.
The description on cover of DVD says, “Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes and their partners are confident and focused, standing up to the worst the streets have to offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are prepared for: fatherhood. When tragedy strikes home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, fears, faith, and fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God…and to their children?”
Integrity with God, self and others is the core value all men need. The influence of the father for good or evil is branded on each child’s heart. I counsel adults today who have deep painful emotional issues because of an absentee dad, an abusive dad or an emotionally absent dad. This creates the problem of a distorted father-God concept. If a birth father is absent, abusive or passive, it leaves the child without a firm foundation upon which to build their lives at every level. When their natural father is not there for them in a positive manner, it’s difficult for a child to trust and believe that their heavenly Father loves sight unseen.
These men are challenged with integrity on the job and within their families. Every husband and father faces these issues. It takes a strong man who has deep roots in Godly values to stand for righteousness at every level of his life. I highly recommend this DVD.
