Every year I read a lot of books. Among the books I select I try to always have a few that deal with marriage and family. Last week I read the little book Eyes of the Ship by Jim Moore. In the book Moore uses the story of the Titanic as a metaphor to talk about fatherhood. While there was nothing necessarily profound for me personally, I found the questions at the end of each chapter helpful. The book was good in that it simply caused me to reflect on how I am doing as a father, reminded me of the high calling of raising my daughters, and challenged me to be the best dad I can be for them. And that, of course, is the point.
