The father of two girls, author Bill Swindell lived a fast-paced, career-oriented life until one day, his youngest daughter climbed onto his lap, patted him on the cheek, and said, "Earth calling Daddy, earth calling Daddy." That call, gentle but deeply disturbing, jolted him into acknowledging how far he had drifted emotionally from his family. Realizing that love of family must be accompanied by time spent with them, Swindell set off to recommit himself to his wife and children.
In this book, he recounts his awakening to the responsibilities and joys of fatherhood. From a Christian perspective, he urges other fathers to make the same commitment, to be there not only physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well for their own children. With passion, a gift for storytelling, and wise words of advice, he charts a path for busy dads everywhere to follow back to the heart of life: home and family. (Author abstract)
