(who was named after my father). I was 15 years old here, I think.

Now, Bo has two girls that honor him like I honor my Daddy. Yes, he can thank me for that (kind of, lol).

"You put your Dad on a pedestal"...Yes, yes I do. I don't think he is perfect. I know he makes mistakes but I also know his heart. A man is a man of honor when he seeks the face of God and then walks in obedience to God's will.
|Daddy and Mom this past Christmas|
He is the man who taught me how a woman should be treated. He has always treated my beautiful mother with love, affection, grace, patience, kindness, a joyful servants heart. A man is a man of honor when he loves his wife as Christ loves His Church.

He taught me how to be a parent. Even after I had children, he would tell me, "You only punish to the point of regret. Anything more isn't about them but about you." He showed me that not everything is a battle that has to be fought...this came in handy when my 3 became teenagers. He was always quick to play with us, make us popcorn, igniting our imaginations on car rides with an ice cream cone.
A man is a man when he loves his children enough to spend time with them, teaching them how to become men and women of God in a lost world.

These are just some of the reasons I honor my father, Ronald Dean Estep. He is a man of honor. He did all this without a role model of how to be a good dad. It was his pursuit of God with his whole heart that took him from fatherless to a Father of Honor.

Happy Father's Day, Daddy!!!!
