A Heartfelt Letter To My Husband on Father’s Day: Who You Are Matters

“Hi, You. It’s Me,

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about your impact on our family, and I wanted to take a moment to share some thoughts with you.

As they grow, our kids see you in the big moments and the small, everyday ones that truly shape who they are. Whether you teach them how to rollerskate, cheer them on at award ceremonies, or just sit with them talking about life, your presence is a constant source of strength and comfort.

Today, I want to remind you of something incredibly important—our family’s identity begins with you. It’s not your job to rescue us; Jesus has already done that. But you have significant influence and impact, setting the tone for our household. We’re not always aware of it, but our family has a unique and powerful identity that shapes who we are. This goes far beyond our shared DNA. It’s our loud shared laughter, our ability to comfort one another, and the irreplaceable sense of belonging that only God could’ve created through our being together.

I know there are times when we don’t see eye to eye and moments when things like stubbornness or insecurities get the best of us all. But those moments are just part of the story being written. The many ways you use these moments to teach and instill resilience within our home, the importance of standing up for what you believe in, and the value of forgiveness are invaluable to us, especially our kids.

Your work ethic and dedication are always visible, yet you intentionally prioritize being available to play and be present. The kids see how hard you work to provide for our family, often sacrificing your wants and needs to ensure we have everything. That kind of dedication isn’t just about the physical things; it’s about the love and care you pour into our lives and the home we’re making together. Thank you for showing us what it means to be committed and to work hard for the people you love.

Everyone needs a family’s safety, connection, and support in our fast-paced, ever-evolving world. Your role as the leader of our house is vital in creating this environment alongside me. The older we get, the more I learn who our family is—it’s so much more than what people see on the outside, but the very foundation our kids will someday build upon with a family of their own. It really is the glue that holds each of us together, even in the toughest of times.

One of the most important lessons you teach is the importance of integrity, and you demonstrate this value in the way you live and love us. You often say, ‘Always do what you believe is right, even when it’s not easy or popular.’ Your unwavering commitment to your principles is a guiding light for our family. I already see the kids living out this principle in their own unique ways.

Every day, whether you realize it or not, you are shaping the next generation. Your actions, words, and values create a legacy that influences our kids and the generations after them. I know this is why you’ve made understanding and protecting our family’s culture so important. The shared values and beliefs that guide you ultimately help our family navigate life’s ups and downs. They’ve instilled character and created a sense of unity and strength.

Simple weekly dinners and holiday traditions—these moments have created some of the most fun and lasting memories and a sense of belonging. They give our family something to look forward to and uphold. The stories of your small beginning, the fight to overcome, lessons through failures, and everyday challenges are what inspire us to live with purpose. Your life story provides wisdom, connection, and a deep sense of fulfillment within our home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

“Who You Are Matters…”

Who you are matters more than words can fully express. Your values, your love, your strength—all of it shapes our family in ways you may not even realize. You are a role model, a mentor, and a friend. Your influence is woven into the very fabric of our family.

You’ve lived out with grace and humility what it means to lead your family with purpose and intention, fulfilling the very calling God has placed on your life. Thank you for embracing who you are so we can intentionally live a fulfilling life together. Thank you for defining and celebrating who we are—the shared identity that wonderfully and purposefully tells the world who our family is. While who we are as a family is powerful, it’s also essential to celebrate the unique individuals within our family, and you do this daily. You bring your own color to our family canvas, making who we are every day richer and, certainly, more fun. Thank you for embracing each of us as individuals, as it strengthens our sense of unity and creates a safe environment where we can learn and grow together.

Our family’s personality doesn’t just stay within our home; it influences how we interact with the world, and this is evident in how you continue to lead our family. Our journey together has shaped each of our kids in the most beautiful ways. Who we are as a family has become a lens through which they see the world and impacts everything from their individual perspectives to how they’ll someday contribute to the world. Through your leadership and love, you remind me that intentional leadership within a family isn’t just about the present—it’s about the future; that the values, behaviors, and dynamics we as parents model at home become the legacy that will influence future generations. You’ve been given the power to create a positive and impactful legacy that others will eventually live out, and it’s with gratitude and thankfulness I watch you commit your life to building this kind of legacy.

Our family was not brought together by accident. God has equipped and called you to be the leader of our home, and it’s clear to me why. You’ve shaped our family into a powerful source of strength, joy, and belonging, one that’s built on values, inside jokes, getting back up when we fall, and many Christmas traditions. These treasures make our family uniquely ours, guiding us through life’s changes and challenges.

Thank you for being you, for all the sacrifices, the lessons, and the love. Thank you for showing our kids what it means to be a person of character and heart. We are proud to be your family, and we are grateful every day for the husband and father you are.

I love you more than all of it.

Your Biggest Fan & Forever Teammate”
