Jerrad Lopes didn’t have much of a role model for being a good father—his own dad bailed on the family when Jerrad was just 3—and he admits to making plenty of mistakes as a husband and father himself. But in an effort to process his conflicted emotions, he started a blog that went viral and eventually turned into the Dad Tired ministry, which tries to equip men to lead their families well—whether they grew up with good role models or not. This week Jerrad talks with Nate Dewberry about his ministry, filling the vital roles of spouse, parent, and disciple, and giving his children the tools to do the same.
