Your relationship with your kids and spouse are made up of innumerable experiences and interactions that demand thoughtfulness, intentionality, and wisdom. Being a dad has never been easy, and no website is going to change that. But if a site can provide you with some help, some ideas, some guidance...well, that’s what we’re aiming for. dadcraft is a guide to help you refine and develop your most important craft—how you father.
We believe in the importance of fathers because we've each had great fathers and each now have the privilege of being fathers. We're also family. Dan is the biological father to Andrew and Erik, and now a father to Chris (who had the good fortune of marrying Andrew and Erik's kid sister, Alli). Together, we are fathers to 14 unique and beautiful children. These kids are gifts we do not deserve. But they are gifts entrusted to our care, and apathy simply is not an option.
dadcraft grew out of our living room conversations. We were constantly sharing ideas, lamenting mistakes and encouraging one another along the way. Being a dad is often isolating. dadcraft brings to bear our experiences and the experiences of the gifted and transparent fathers we're excited to introduce to you.
We’re far from perfect, but we’re clearly better together. And together we believe that we can help each other to more courageously, creatively and effectively father our kids.
We are dads. We believe in dads. And we believe in you.
Dan, Andrew, Erik, & Chris
