Item description for Love Never Fails: Spiritual Reflections for Dads of All Ages by Patrick T. Reardon...
Overview Some days, Dad, you just can't get ahead. You're arguing with your moody teenager, misinterpreting your young child's drawing, or getting yet another gray hair from one of your kid's crazy antics. But there are also the days like the first time you held your baby daughter, or watched your son cradle in his arms his own first child, or admired a work of beauty in a museum with your daughter. Fatherhood is full of ups and downs, and in Love Never Fails author Patrick T. Reardon celebrates both the joys and the sorrows of parenting. In the end, he shows that fatherhood can require a lot of work, but a father's love never fails. The reflections in Love Never Fails are accompanied by an inspirational quote from Scripture, contemporary music, or literature, and a link to a website with practical advice on the issues discussed in the reflection.
Publishers Description No one ever said fatherhood would be easy, but sometimes the rollercoaster ride of parenting can be a bit overwhelming. Whether it's misinterpreting a child's family portrait, enjoying a homemade Sunday morning breakfast, arguing with a moody teenager, or simply watching the kids skipping through the rain, fatherhood is full of ups and downs. In his new book Love Never Fails, Patrick T. Reardon, author of the popular Daily Meditations (with Scripture) for Busy Dads and Starting Out, offers a collection of reflections based on the daily occurrences of fatherhood. He celebrates the joys of parenting while acknowledging the sometimes exhausting antics of kids, and in the end shows how a father's love truly never fails. The reflections in Love Never Fails are accompanied by an inspirational quote from Scripture, music or literature, and a link to a website with practical advice on the issues discussed in the reflection. It's a wonderful gift for fathers of all ages and experience levels.

Although it is written for "dads of all ages," this is a wonderful gift book for anyone interested in the meaning of fatherhood. Each page contains a theme-based title, short reflection by the author, brief quotation, and, get this, a highlighted web address followed by one or two sentences describing the site.
Here's how it works. In "Delight," the author says it's okay "to be a little dopey" as you hold your new baby, and experience feelings of responsibility, worry, and awe. "She's a delight. Pure and simple," he writes. Next is a quotation from actress Helen Hayes, whose husband capped his comment on the new baby's virtues with, "She's more beautiful than the Brooklyn Bridge." And, for advice on handling the "less-than-wonderful" moments, readers are guided to www.kidscource.com.
