The hardest part of parenting is making sure you’ve taught your children everything they need to know to live a successful and joyful life. And while we can tell them what they need to know, it’s more important that we lead by example. Actions speak louder than words. A father is always being watched by his kids. He’s showing his sons how they should be as an adult and showing his daughters what to look for in a husband. It’s a big responsibility that fathers can’t take lightly.
It’s essential that all parents build and share their testimony to and in front of their children regularly.

And fatherhood is one of the most important lessons that someone can learn. By living a righteous, faithful life, we will have the best chance of learning those lessons.
13. “Fatherhood is not a matter of station or wealth; it is a matter of desire, diligence, and determination to see one’s family exalted in the celestial kingdom.” – Ezra Taft Benson
Every father wants what’s best for their children, and there is nothing better than eternal life. So every father gets this lifetime to help their children live lives worth of exaltation and follow the example of the Savior. It’s an important calling that our fathers don’t take lightly.
