What an amazing father I've been blessed with!
Here's a little video I made showcasing bits of the wonderful life he's led.
This dad of mine has written like 40 books (so many that I can never remember the exact number), one of which was a NYTimes #1 Bestseller, spoken to audiences around the world about parenting ideas and life balance, served as an amazing mission president in England when he was only 30 years old, run several companies, run some major campaigns, held some pretty lofty political appointments, traveled to virtually every country, started a whole bunch of excellent programs for families including the Joy School program that is known and loved by hundreds of thousands of families, and has headed up so many exciting and meaningful accomplishments and contributions that I they'd take pages and pages to list.
But most importantly, he has served as an amazing husband and father and grandfather. He has 9 children, 26 grandchildren, and scores of friends and extended family members who benefit from his personal example, advice, and love. His example of vision and goals and hard work and faith combined with faithful confidence and strong convictions have made him a truly remarkable influence to many.
I'm so grateful for this dad of mine. And this mom who puts up with the sometimes bombastic and eccentric stuff that comes with his greatnesss!
