Overview

What does it take to build a great dad?

Men like to build things. We like to take parts and put them together to make a whole. Did you know that this do-it-yourself talent can help you become a great dad?

In his fresh, humorous style, Todd Cartmell takes you on an action-packed journey to help you become the dad God made you to be and that your kids hope you will be. You will learn the five key areas that every great dad needs to renovate, including how you look at, talk to, connect with, act toward, and lead your children.

Cartmell shows you that you already have the raw materials at your disposal, then gives you the blueprint for putting them together. Begin your Project Dad today. Your family will never be the same.

"In Project Dad, Todd lays out a practical path to confident, successful parenting. With plenty of humor and insightful advice, he'll encourage you to embrace God's work in your life and to become the father your children need--and that God intended."--John Fuller, broadcaster; author of First Time Dad
