Take Only One Rod

In Eldredge’s The Way of the Wild Heart he encourages dads to connect with their kids. Going deeper, he makes the point be intentionally focused on the child – making it about him or her.  He came to a critical point with his youngest son, Luke, when he realized time spent was about the boy, not about the event. When they went fishing, John took just one pole- for Luke.
