Just Call Me Dad: 13 Principles for Better Dads, Better Kids and a Better World, has four main themes.
Theme #1: Don’t be THAT dad! Being a competitive athlete, it was a difficult journey for me to become a dad, but this world needs dads to step up our game.
Theme #2: You can learn a lot from John Wooden and great quotes. I think most things in life are pretty basic, and a short quote like “Don’t be a victim” can take you a long way toward success.
Theme #3: God has a plan. My plan was to be a professional baseball player and a broadcaster, not to become a dad during my junior year of college, but my book is about how things worked out the way they were supposed to. It may not have happened exactly as I drew it up, but God had a plan. He still does, and we are all a part of it.
Theme #4: Christianity is true. I put together one hundred or so Sunday school lessons using videos I found on the internet, and I organized the best ones into the thirteen principles. Using this contemporary approach to present the Bible, I share these true stories, which I call modern-day parables, with the reader. This book also contains 140 Bible verses and a wide array of examples of Christian apologetics.
