During the entire month of June, NFI is Celebrating Father's Month! Because we think dad deserves more than one day! As you may have assumed, NFI has a lot of dads. So we're featuring dads as a reminder throughout the month -- to celebrate your dad more than one day. Meet Erik below:

What's the lamest gift you ever gave your dad?
A bottle of aftershave.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received about fatherhood?
The best thing I can do for my daughters is to love my wife (I saw it modeled from my dad and it was reinforced by NFI).
What's a good day to you as a dad?
When I can make my daughters laugh uncontrollably.
What's the one thing you always carry with you (you can’t leave home without this)?
What's one thing you wish you could do more?
Have jam sessions with my daughters (we all play instruments).
What man most changed your life? The previous pastor at my church because he showed me you can be a Christian and still have fun!
What's your most memorable moment as a dad? Being thanked by my daughter for interviewing her dates.
What’s one thing your dad always taught you?
Be a man of your word.
At this stage of fatherhood, to what do you most look forward?
Seeing my daughters make wise relationship choices and start families of their own.
