This Kind of Poverty: A Whole Different World from Our Own

“The truly poor won’t be at our church services. They won’t be at our committee meetings. They won’t be at the supermarket where we shop. And they aren’t here today. We have to reach out and find them where they are.”
“We found a whole different world from our own. We found people living without bathrooms or running water – with holes in their roofs and floors – people so poor they had no beds, no stoves, no shoes. Until that day, I had never imagined this kind of poverty – right next door to our own snug and comfortable lives.”

The Way He Celebrated Father’s Day

“I always joke that my kids’ favorite holiday is Father’s Day.
They love the way I celebrate the occasion by writing each of them a thank-you letter and a generous check.
It’s my way of letting them know how much I appreciate the great pleasure and privilege of being their dad.”
~ Wayne Dyer,
Philosopher, Author, & Motivational Speaker

He inspires everything in my life and enables me to do the best that I can.
I want to hang out with him more than anyone.”

Family Really is Important

“I think a lot of the problems we have as a society is because we don’t acknowledge that family is important,
and it has to be people who are present, you know, and mothers and fathers,
both are not present enough with children.”

Routes of Parenthood

I just hope that I’m able to give someone as beautiful a life as my parents gave me.”
