Carey Casey, author of Championship Fathering scores a 'touchdown' for 'Team Fatherhood' with this book. A book you will not want to set down once you start.

Casey, the CEO of the National Center for Fathering, has a life story, as well as a message that shines BRIGHT!

Casey's stories, insight, inspiration and practical tips will provide a Dad, and the entire family, with a 'gameplan' for any Father, on how to leave a lasting legacy in our children's live.

The life stories of Carey Casey show that he is uniquely qualified to be a leader in America today as to family life. From Herman Boone (Remember the Titans Coach), to the Rev. Billy Graham, to meeting his wife at the University of North Carolina, to Pastoring a Chicago church, to Dallas Cowboys legendary coach Tom Landry, to FCA to CEO of the National Center for Fathering, one can see there are 'no coincidences' when God has a plan for someones life.

You will smile, be blessed and be changed by this book.

Format: Paperback
This book is something that all fathers and prospective fathers should be reading. And honestly, every woman out there should be putting this in their man's hands. This is a wonderful guide to being a, well, wonderful father. Interspersed with sports stories , stories from his own experience, and Biblical wisdom, Carey Casey has a 'game plan' for being a great father.

The book includes chapters like "Love 101" and "Championship Fathering". Most important are chapters on "Loving Your Children" and "Loving Your Children's Mother". These are all important chapters and focus on creating healthy, well balanced children.

Personally, I loved reading the sports stories and how they fit in with the Biblical references he used. As a single mom raising boys, I thought it was a great book. I had to be father and mother and this book would have been a great resource. This book is going to impact your family, whether just the father reads it, or if both parents read it.

This book is definitely one that should be on the list of every father and mother - and referred to over and over again.

Format: Paperback
Of all the responsibilities a man can take on in his life, nothing (let me repeat that... NOTHING) is more important than the responsibility of being a father. Some two years and four months ago, I held my first-born daughter in my arms for the very first time - it's an absolutely life changing moment, and one that I will always carry with me. With that said, becoming a great father takes quite a bit of work. It means being humble enough to learn and grow, and the ability to admit your mistakes and learn from them.

I was eager to have the opportunity to read Championship Fathering. Carey Casey is the CEO of the National Center for Fathering. He has also worked as the team chaplain of several NFL teams, including the Dallas Cowboys. So, for a sports fan like myself, knowing Casey's background had me hooked from the beginning - especially considering that the foreword is written by former Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy.

Casey does a wonderful job of conveying his message in this book. The stories that he tells are memorable, and the questions are like darts, hitting right at the heart of the matter.

Several chapters were, in my opinion, extremely important. First, chapter 3 talks about getting involved with your kids as a father. In our society, many fathers are almost totally absent from the lives of their children. It's important to be involved - and not just on an occasional basis, but every day. Next, in chapter 6, Casey talks about loving your children's mother. Wow! Such a needed word for today's men! How we, as men, treat the mother of our children will impact how our children view relationships, and themselves, for the rest of their lives. This is especially important in the situation of divorce.

Simply put, this book is an excellent resource, for dads of all stripes and situations. From toddlers to teens to grown-up children, this book will have something for you. It's relatively short and to the point. There are many real-life pointed examples of what Mr. Casey is talking about...frankly Mr. Carey tells a good story and is great at pointedly sharing his experience in a way that helps you understand the importance of each idea.

Each chapter ends with a healthy list of age-appropriate tips and ideas to apply the insight covered in the chapter. It's a book you will want to keep on your bookshelf and refer to several times in the future, when you are looking for ways to improve your fathering skills as your child grows older, and your situation and needs grow with them.

First, it is a must read for all dads! I wish I had this when my kids were first born. The simplicity of this approach is amazing and the relevance using sports terminology and examples is easy to understand and put into daily practice at home. I'm suggesting it to every dad I know and giving it as gifts to my sports fan friends. Join the team of championship fathers, and change the world through the kids in your life. Read this one and pass it on to someone you care about.
