        Kessborah as mum calls him
        Daddy has been amazing and indeed he’s excelled all fathers known.
        Lessons learnt from dad are innumerable and highly invaluable. The greatest of all is leading us to Christ. He showed us the way and we have never departed from it. He’s taught us to be selfless by being an example, he sacrifices so we could survive. He taught us the need to share with others no matter the quantity. Dad has taught us how to treat women by his exemplary gestures towards our mother. Barima nsi nsuom ansa na waham, daddy has lived it. He never forced us in decision making but guided us in making the best out of most choices which I have never regretted. I pray God blesses him with longevity and good health. If anyone hasn’t seen an angel , well I have one and He’s my dad.

  2. Dad always taught to be truthful always, be confident always and be time conscious. One day he advised me to always greet first always when I receive a call irrespective of who called who first, o disagreed telling him it the one who called who had to greet. I obliged unwillingly but little did I know it would be of great help in customer service as I had to be greeting first. Might be a bitter lesson and first but made it simpler for me later and I’m grateful

      Dad always tells me I can make it in life when I am committed to God, determined and never ready to give up no matter the situation. It has really helped me in divert ways because when the situation becomes tough I remember His words. Am soo grateful to my sweet dad.

  3. We learn a lot from our parents. There’s basic things we learn that are universal in most parenting (school, job, respect, values, etc), however also some hidden things that transfer to our adult lives that are often times easily missed. As we get older we come to realize that our *fathers* are people too and despite mistakes (as we all make), they gave us a lot. It’s easy to take for granted many of the lessons they give us in childhood and beyond that transfer over to adulthood.
    The importance of persistence and a never-quit attitude is one of the most important qualities I’ve learned from my dad.
    He always tells me even if you are faced with rejection,you should keep going;just make sure you’re doing what is right and you’re proud of

  4. My dad said to me the best money to enjoy is the one you really worked hard for ,so you have to really work hard so that you can buy what ever you want and enjoy life as you want, when you work hard for something, when ever you loose it you can always get it back cos you already know the way which is working hard a hard work doesn’t kill so work hard to get on top so that you can enjoy life very well 🤣🤣

  5. Father’s play an invaluable role in rearing their children and teaching them gospel principles.
    Below is how my father made a difference in my life and that of my siblings through selfless act of love and kindness and these lessons were learnt from him.

    1. Do not dismiss the outliers. He had his own “rubber band theory” — we were to inhabit the outlier’s point of view. We did not have to agree, but when we returned to our own center, he believed, our minds, like rubber bands, would have been permanently stretched.

    2. Be curious. With my dad, it was never, “How was your day?” It was “What have you learned today?” Or “What can you learn today?” The norms never held his attention. The variation, the unpredictable endlessly fascinated him.

    3. Just listen. As an adult, I still cannot fathom the myriad background operations that were whirring in my dad’s brain when we were kids. But, when you sat with him, the world virtually stopped spinning. Even when we could not come to an understanding, he would thoughtfully comment, “You have given me something to think about,” as if it were a gift.

    4. Live a life of Integrity.
    Integrity is one of those abstract qualities that we all desire, but often find difficult to define, and apply. Integrity means whole character, or unbroken, undivided, thus meaning we live a life that is undivided between inward and outward characteristics. It means that we act the same in all aspects of our lives, at home, in the workplace, in the community and anywhere one may find him or herself.
    My father is a man who has the same moral code at home, in the workplace, and in the community. I witnessed him it the working field, in completive situations, play hard but fair. He acted the same in with people, and in raising his children.
    Living a life of integrity is more than acting morally in public. It’s about what you are like in private, behind closed doors. Living with integrity brings wholeness and peace. Your conscience can rest easy, and you can look at yourself in the mirror with pride.

    5.Treat her like a Lady
    My father never treated a female as second class, but accepted them as equals, even before it was popular to do so. He understood that women are different, but precious. I can recall times when my mother started an auto shop business before it was recognized in the community that women could run a business, let along an auto shop. He stood by her, supporting her, and encouraging her.
    More than that he treats my mother like a lady,a queen, treating her with respect and dignity. Characteristics that I have learnt.
    The older I become, the more reflective I become, and I often wonder what life lessons I missed from my father. My desire in many aspects, has been to emulate him as a father and community leader, and pass on characteristics to my children.

    6. Do not Give up on Your Dreams
    It is never too late to start dreaming again and following your dreams.
    There is one more thing to be said. If you really want to achieve something, you need also to be unique. Do not try to be someone else. Be unique and people will notice you. If you do the same things other people do, you might be successful, but probably not on a big scale.

  6. Growing up, my father taught me many valuable lessons, specifically: to be kind to everyone and to never give up.
    These simple but important lessons have shaped my life in its entirety. My dad is the kindest man that I have ever met.
    He never talks bad about others, always helps other people, and always tries to do the right thing no matter what the cost to himself.
    He is kind, thoughtful, generous and honest. I attribute much of who I am as a person to my dad and I thank him for his dedication to our family.

    He thought me how to give wholeheartedly.
    We don’t stay together but anytime I talk to him on phone

  8. my dad told me to never let worries and problems arrest the potential of my mind but always craft something positive out of troubles and tragedies which occur to me and it has really improve my life so much. Thank you Dad

  9. Dad taught me that men are products of information! Knowledge is power, like imagine how practical this lesson is; I’m now in this contest and Doughman has played a role in acting out the lesson. ❤️

  13. Life with a daddy like mine was “hard” for me because I constantly felt I was missing out on everything out there.
    My schoolmates used to make me feel I had the most difficult life and I had no freedom, sometimes I felt same.
    Being raised by a strict Christian father, my life was undoubtedly routined.
    Waking up so early in the morning when my age mates were asleep just to have morning devotion and do house chores which could be done once a week but daddy insisted it be done daily.
    My siblings and I were always on time to school and we didn’t use the school bus because my dad insisted the driver wasn’t punctual, so he always took us himself.
    Immediately after school he would be at the gate waiting to pick us and my siblings and I felt it was unfair because we didn’t get the privilege to walk home with friends and do all the random stuff. We couldn’t even eat from the school canteen because my dad had it all figured out, he cooks every single day for us.
    Getting home, we had to read our Bibles and memorize our weekly scriptures, do our assignments and prepare for evening church service. And on days where there was no service we watched news and talked about our day , prayed and went to bed.
    Going higher the academic ladder my daddy still found ways to monitor us in Shs through the strict house mistresses.
    In the university, weekends were not to be spent on campus but at home.
    Looking back now, all I see is love. The women my siblings and I have become is as a result of the ‘hard’ training.
    I no longer feel I missed out. I know I was kept away from so many mistakes and am so grateful my daddy did this for us. I look back and all I achieved has been because I was never in trouble, being a “boring” child. My father is my role model, I look up to him because no one else could have shaped and groomed me into the beautiful woman I am now. My father is the best and deserves this and more
