NRT LISTS, Father's Day At Centricity

Here at NRT, we appreciate everything our artists do for their families. And what better way to recognize that than with a Father's Day appreciation post? We asked several Centricity artists (who also happen to be dads) what kind of legacy they hope to pass on to their children.

Aaron Shust
Sometimes I ponder the vapor that is this life. Unless the Lord comes back before I die, and if He is gracious enough to let my boys outlive me, there will in fact come a time when they exist without their daddy. Hearing a doctor say that my child might not survive the night is very focusing. Even leaving week after week makes me appreciate the importance of quality time and the influence I have as a father. "What might my last words to them be?"

One of the earliest passages we drilled into our boys' young minds was about the fruit of the Spirit: the "evidences" of Jesus in their lives. We want our boys to be loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and able to control themselves. We want them to know that their parents fall short of this example, and when we do, we're not afraid to apologize and ask forgiveness. If they carry that mindset into their adult lives, with their faith anchored in Christ's atonement, we could hope for nothing greater.
 

Jonny Diaz
I hope to pass along a spirit of hard work and perseverance, while at the same time resting in the fact that our God is completely in control.

Mike Grayson 
I grew up in a home where my dad was my hero. He wasn't my hero because I saw him as perfect or unstoppable, but because I saw him go through hard things, be honest about them, and ultimately get to the other side victorious. My prayer is that my kids see me in the same way. I never want to hide my faults and pretend like I'm perfect. I do, however, want to be honest and face things head on. Hopefully my kids will see that with the Lord, anything is possible.
 

Chad Mattson of Unspoken
I hope to pass on a love for God's Word, and for people.

We would like to thank our artists who are fathers for all they do--not just on Father's Day, but every day. May God continue to bless every father as they strive to raise their children and support their families!
