February 26, 2012, at Church I did the Courageous Pledge (The Resolution) with the other men of my church as well. This is based
I made the Courageous Pledge (Known as the The Resolution)
That is a very, moving and uplifting movie. This whole month of February our pastor has preached on the male being the spiritual leader and setting the example as the spiritual leader as well. I today made my pledge before God to set the example and be Courageous. Please keep me and my family in your prayers and I encourage all you men out there to do the same. God bless you all. Below is the Courageous Pledge.
The Resolution! Courageous Pledge
I DO solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself, my wife, and my children.The Resolution

Of course, I also substituted in the pledge where it says My Wife with My Future Wife as I am not married. (at that time of doing this)
I resolved to be a godly father! Do you resolve to be a godly father? If so I want to hear from you.
