Publisher's Summary

Have the day-to-day realities of being a dad and husband left you frustrated or just plain worn out? You're not alone. Jerrad Lopes felt that way too...until he started blogging about his struggles and discovered thousands of other men who want to be good husbands and fathers but don't know where to start.

In Dad Tired and Loving It, you will learn that spiritual leaders:

  • Realize their story isn't the story - it's all about Jesus
  •  Point their wives, children, community, and world toward God
  • Stumble their way through spiritual leadership rather than doing nothing
  • Seek humility rather than strive for perfection

When you begin to understand the bigger picture of God's purpose for you in your marriage and family, you'll see that the good news of Jesus makes it possible for you to love and lead without fear and discouragement. Get equipped and encouraged as you become the man God is calling you to be - even when you're dad tired.

This book brings you closer to Jesus

This is the best resource I’ve found for Christian dads / husbands. I stumbled across Jerrad’s podcast, which is all Kingdom gold, and this book is sort of like a summary of a lot of the best stuff I’ve heard from him. Really really good stuff, definitely a must read for anyone wanting to become a better dad, husband and Jesus follower.

Encouraging

This was an incredibly relatable and encouraging book! My husband and I listened to it on our drive to and from our destination on a weekend away from our kiddos. So encouraging and convicting, even for me, the mom! Thank you for such gracious, life giving words by pointing back to Jesus continually throughout your book, Jerrad!

Dad Tired, loving it.

I love my kids.
I love my wife.
We serve an incredible, AWEsome, God.
I stumble constantly trying to serve and lead my family well, pointing them to HIM. This book encourages and lays out some practical ways to assist in that journey.
Thanks Jerrad!

Lackluster

The back of this book made me think it would be helpful for young men I am charged with shepherding. I found it might be helpful for those who are simple and want general platitudes, but it was of little specific wisdom that can be accessed and brought to their daily life. of the 4 guys I was considering this for, I think only one of them might be helped by it.

One of those I'll keep downloaded

There is nothing new under the sun, according to Scripture. And that's true of this book. I have heard many of the principles laid out before for other areas of life, but I loved and appreciate how Jarred made the connections to fatherhood.
As I prepare to become a first time dad, this book has moved me, convicted me, and encouraged me. I don't listen to books more than once, but this will be one of them.

If you not religious don’t bother.

This book seemed like it would be a good read on how to be a better father, but it only preached at you.. and basically an autobiography. Just not my flavor.

Practical and funny!

I love this book! Very encouraging, and practical! The audio book is just like his podcasts. He is right along side you struggling to be the man God has called you to be. Can't say enough about how encouraging this book has been. A must read/listen.

funny, easy to follow and powerful

I loved every second of it! So relatable and so many powerful messages that are backed my scripture. Jerrad is a great writer and I highly recommend this audiobook.
