2. World Greatest Dad

This would be there perfect dad quote from a daughter or son! ?My dad was and is the ultimate! I realize now that being a great dad isn’t made up of big gestures and expensive gifts. An amazing dad comes from all the small and steady ways they fit into your life. My Dad was the rock of our family. He worked and still works the same job over 30 years. A job that wasn’t probably his first choice but it provided a wonderful and comfortable life for his wife and 7 kids!

He often worked many more than 40 hours a week, but still came home and rolled up his sleeves. Diving into the mountain of dishes left from dinner. Or quickly changed out of his suit to bend over the edge of a bathtub and help bathe babies. My dad quietly but persistently served our family every day. That is why to me he is the worlds greatest dad.

3. Today a bride tomorrow a wife. Forever your little girl

Walking down the isle with my dad was perhaps on of my to most favorite moments of us together. I had a very small and quite ceremony in my parents backyard at the ripe age of 19. I was worried about how the world would judge me. Being married so young. My parents were so kind and supportive of this decision my now husband and I had made to be married this young.

There is a picture of us walking down the isle together and the smile on both of our faces just radiates. I sure love the man my Father is and that he showed me the kind of man I would want in my life someday. He left big shoes to fill for my sweet husband Devin. Thankfully I married someone equally kind and loving as my father. This would make the perfect dad quote from a daughter who is newly engaged or just walked down the isle!

4. The only thing better than having you for a Dad is my kids having you for a Grandpa

I am the oldest daughter of 7 kids. My husband Devin and I welcomed our twin boys the winter of 2011. They were my parents first grand babies. It was incredible to see my dad love on those sweet boys of ours! They were born 6 weeks early and spent several weeks in the NICU. They were teeny tiny.

My parents spent several date nights the weeks they were in the hospital, visiting with us. The look on my Dad’s face holding his first grand babies was priceless! Our boys were tube feed for a few weeks until they were capable of nursing and bottle feeding. My dad didn’t hesitate to help tube feed the boys any chance he got! It was such a precious memory of a somewhat hard time! The visits that my parents made to us while our twins were in the NICU sure made the experience much more bearable. This dad quote would pair perfectly with a birth announcement!

5. The older I get the smarter my Father seems to get.

This funny Dad quote seems to resonate more and more as my own children grow up! Parenting has a way of teaching you every nook and cranny in life you don’t know about. From impossible decisions you never knew you’d face, to situations completely out of your control. Its true that my dad seems wiser by the minuet! This would be a great dad quote from son!

6. The most important influence from my childhood was my Father

As I mentioned above my dad quietly but consistently worked hard for my family both in and outside of the home. He truly was the best example of how to live by his actions. He didn’t have to say much about “how to be a good dad” he truly lived it in his actions every day. I know its because of him that I have such a wonderful husband. My dad set the bar high. It would have been hard to settle for anyone less than the type of man my dad was! I realize now as an adult just how profound an impact my Dad’s example was to me

. I see my wonderful friends who lacked this type of role model in their life. How even now grown and out of the house that this deeply affects who they are and the hurt and anguish they feel because of it. A good Father is really an extraordinary gift that cannot be matched. This inspiring dad quote could be shared with your own father or perhaps a man who was a father in all the ways your own father maybe couldn’t be.

7. The love between a father and daughter knows no distance.

This Dad quote form daughter is especially true now that I live several thousand miles away from him! Even though we are physically far apart all it takes is a phone call to tune into his great advice and feel the comfort of home!

8. The heart of a Father is the greatest masterpiece of nature.

This dad inspirational quote I have had the pleasure of witnessing with my husband. To see his love for our kids is so incredible. After the whirlwind of an experience that was the delivery and aftermath of our twin boys, we welcomed our daughter 19 months later. She was born without consequence and was full term and by gods gift very healthy.

It was so beautiful to watch him the afternoon she was born. Just staring over every feature and memorizing every detail in our hospital room. Just soaking her in. He has a fierce love for that little girl and all our kids. To see how his heart has grown and molded with the birth of each of our 5 kids is beyond words.

9. The best Dad’s get promoted to Grandpa’s?

If you are looking to share a some special news with your dad consider printing and using this as part of that special announcement! If you have ever needed a pick me up search for “baby announcements” on youtube. You’ll be full of tears and laughter in a matter of seconds! There are few things as wonderful as the arrival of new babies.

10. Some people don’t believe in heroes but they haven’t met my Dad

Dad quotes from daughters or son, this particular one strikes a chord with me. My kids know the reality of the price our hero pays every day. Being the wife of a police officer is something I was on board with from day one. He graduated the academy before our twins turned one. But our kids didn’t get to make this choice. It is often hard to watch them tell him goodbye as he heads out into the night for another long and often unpredictable shift.

As they are getting older they are starting to ask more questions. They are also starting to realize more and more what type of job their dad has. I am so thankful for the bravery that Devin has. I think many of you can relate to the special heroes in your life!

11. My Father was my teacher but more importantly he was a great Dad

Dad inspirational quotes; to this day my parents still have this soft pine table in their kitchen. on it are etched countless hours of math and writing homework. Math was always a tough subject for me. My dad spent many hours with me at that table helping me master the problems I needed to complete for my homework. He was always so kind and patient even though I know I was probably not the easiest student! Did your father help you with your homework too? If so share you favorite memory in the comments.

12. My Father gave me the best gift anyone could give. He believed in me.

On top of having an awesome Dad and wonderful dad of my children my Father in law is also right up there in the same league. I remember several years ago when I was first starting my business and he made it a point to be my cheerleader. Always offering help and assistance to help me achieve my goals! Starting a business from nothing is no easy task. Knowing I had someone rooting for me really helped me believe that I could make it happen! This Father’s Day quote would certainly put a smile on your Dad’s face this year!!

    You are so amazing, so inspiring and uplifting. What a wonderful blessing to have found you through pinterest scrolling. (my new self afflicted addiction while I use my creative side as my ‘art therapy’ wow).I will be launching a site soon and although I am familiar with other social media outlooks I though oh shoot maybe open an etsy shop sell some of my creations to support my launching of my other venture but I am hesitant to get bogged down by anything that will deplete me from being all in with “Abigail Joy Live” and “Christian Creatives United” my two huge projects coming out end of September.

    I am strong in Marketing, Business and entrepreneurial development but social media Whew it gets to be too much and I am training a college student to deal with it.

    You inspired me to stay on the path God has led to and not get overwhelmed with the ‘how’ again and trust Him to make the way where he has led me. To use my creative gift as my joy to keep my home a sanctuary and make gifts for family and friends like I wanted to. My respit and calm place, not a marketplace.

    I will need that space as the rest of my calling will be challenging as I go back into public and address those victimized and how to embrace restoration, breaking free of the enemies prison, becoming Unshackled by Radical Grace. It imparts upon my own life story and God broke me in order to restore me after a lifetime of spiritual abuse, 20 years of Marital domestic violence, and another 15 years I left and turned my back on a God I felt abandoned me and I was never good enough for anyway to find my own ‘love’ through success and other means.

    So I was broken so broken. Nothing goes wasted, my art was my restorative path of recovery. Still a work in progress and you reminded me…. It’s not for sale, neither is my time for a shop which would absolutely deplete me.

    I will follow you and certainly find out about the blogging thing and do research on that.

    Keep up the good work and I pray for all the blessings and abundance for you and your family!
