God, please help me...another game of Candy Land...”

Quite a few dads spend time with their kids. However, many have no clue what their kids really need.

Enter author Jay Payleitner, veteran dad of five, who’s also struggled with how to build up his children’s lives. His 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad combines straightforward features with step-up-to-the-mark challenges men will appreciate:

  • a full year’s worth of focused, doable ideas―one per week, if desired
  • uncomplicated ways to be an example, like “kiss your wife in the kitchen”
  • tough, frank advice, like “throw away your porn”

And, refreshingly...

  • NO exhaustive (and exhausting) lists of “things you should do”
  • NO criticism of dads for being men and acting like men

Dads will feel respected and empowered, and gain confidence to initiate activities that build lifelong positives into their kids. Great gift or men’s group resource!

Review:

“I’m delighted to see so many inspiring, practical, unexpected ideas for dads in one place.”
―from the foreword by Josh McDowell



“This is great stuff, worth any dad’s time. If you can’t benefit from this, you’re not listening. Ignore it only if you don’t want to be a better dad. The first three copies are going to my grown sons.”
―Jerry B. Jenkins, coauthor of the megaselling Left Behind series and author of over 150 other published works



“Jay Payleitner has given fathers a gift...a wise, delightful, practical, and profound book. If you’re a father, you will thank him, and if you’re not, you’ll read this book with joy and give it to a father who will ‘rise up and call you blessed.’”
―Steve Brown, seminary professor, author of Welcome to the Family and other books, and the “voice” of Key Life Network



“The stories will inspire you. The lessons will change you. Jay Payleitner shows twenty-first-century fatherhood for what it is and for what it needs to be.”
―Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, professor and author of more than 50 books, including Man to Man and The Power of Positive Productivity.



“I have been a wife for 37 years, a mom for 31, and a daughter for...well, let’s just say even longer. With those credentials, I highly recommend this book to all dads. It is a good read and, more importantly, a great guide for any man desiring to meet the needs of the children God has entrusted to his care.”
―Kendra Smiley, radio host, conference speaker, and author of Be the Parent and High-Wire Mom



“Moms of all ages, grab this book for your husbands! It’s inspiring, encouraging, and easy to read.”
―Ellen Banks Elwell, author of The Christian Mom’s Idea Book and When There’s Not Enough of Me to Go Around



52 Things Kids Need from a Dad reminds all of us of the humbling privilege and exhilarating joy of fatherhood. You won’t find any lectures or guilt trips here. Instead, it’s more like 52 inspiring halftime talks. As your personal fathering coach, Jay will provoke you to think deep, laugh hard, and love more, leaving you with 52 unexpected fathering insights.”
―Carey Casey, CEO of The National Center for Fathering, speaker, radio host, and author of Championship Fathering



“This book is a must for dads who want to take their fathering to the next level. It's full of real-world advice anyone can take to heart and act upon. It's also fun to read with lots of stories. Formatted in short, easy-to-read chapters, you can pick it up at any time, learn something really useful, and set it down until you have a few more free minutes. I recommend this book.”
―James Read, Creative Director, Grizzard Communications Group
