'In the dad house' blog

It's true - we've started a blog called 'In the dad house'.

The idea for this blog is to strengthen and extend the reach of our voice in the realm of fatherhood. Our hope is that it will be read by fathers and father figures as well as Who Let The Dads Out? group leaders, and that it will contribute to our vision to turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

We're looking for contributing writers - if you've got a story to tell, send your ideas to mark.chester@cff.org.uk
