Dad Tired And Loving It: Stumbling Your Way To Spiritual Leadership, the latest title from popular author/speaker/blogger and podcast host Jerrad Lopes, will be available September 3 from Harvest House Publishers. Helping men discern their roles as husbands and fathers within the bigger picture of God's plan, Dad Tired And Loving It unpacks practical advice and encouragement on a range of topics. 
Founder of the Dad Tired movement--a multi-faceted ministry and online community--Lopes candidly and humorously relates his own struggles as a young husband and father throughout the 192-page book. He challenges men to take the first steps to "stumble" their way through spiritual leadership rather than do nothing at all. 
Dad Tired And Loving It ultimately shows men their story isn't the story--it's all about Jesus. Helping fathers point their families, community and world toward God by seeking humility instead of perfection, the book covers such concepts as not letting sin and shame stop men from leading their families; finding adventure in the Kingdom of God, not in the world; and creating Gospel-centered family memories.  
"As a young dad, I'm not necessarily looking for a magic formula on how to raise kids, written by someone much older than me," Lopes shares in the book's introduction. "I'll take all the advice I can get, but I also know there are no shortcuts or get-the-perfect-kid-quick methods out there. I'm not looking for the latest parenting trends. I'm looking for Jesus."

"That's why I wrote this book," he adds. "I personally wanted to know what the Scriptures had to say about what it means to lead my family well. Like many of my peers, I didn't have a dad around when I was growing up, so I had no one to teach me what spiritual leadership looks like. This book is filled with a lot of practical tips on how to become the spiritual leader of your home, but it goes much deeper than some how-tos. It aims to get at the heart behind them."  
Jerrad Lopes served as a pastor for more than a decade before launching the Dad Tired blog and podcast out of his own desire to be a better husband and father. The podcast has featured interviews with such renowned Christian leaders as Bob Goff, Jon Acuff, Paul David Tripp and Jefferson Bethke, among many others, and has been downloaded more than a million times since its debut nearly four years ago. 
The Dad Tired movement offers a range of resources to help men embrace their responsibilities as spiritual leaders, drawing young husbands and fathers from all walks of life into a vital community of encouragement and intentionality. A sought-after speaker at men's ministry events around the country, Lopes is also the author of Fully Engaged: 10 Practical Ways To Point Your Family Toward Jesus. He and his wife Leila live in Portland, Oregon, with their three children.
