Written by Daniel Lafferty ’18
On Wednesday, October 4, many Westminster Academy dads as well as fathers from the community, gathered together for the Dads’ Breakfast with Dr. Bob Barnes presented by Collision Care Xpress. They shared a meal and learned more about the role of a father in training their children. Dr. Barnes, CEO of Sheridan House Family Ministries, is a renowned speaker, blogger, podcaster, and radio show host. After Mr. Satterly opened in prayer, Dr. Barnes began to speak about what it means to be a father. He shared Godly principles and his own personal stories from raising his children, WA alumni, Torrey Barnes ’97 Roberts and Robey Barnes ‘00. Dylan Kallioinen, a father who attended shared, “As a father of four young children I spend a lot of time trying to navigate fatherhood feeling like I’m treading water. The Dads’ Breakfast with Dr. Bob Barnes is one of the buoys that helps this father stay afloat. The message is always timely and practical. I’d encourage any dad to attend. It doesn’t hurt that the breakfast is good as well!” After Dr. Barnes was done speaking the attendees were treated to several giveaways from Collision Care Xpress, owned by WA parents, Robert and Christina Molina. Overall everyone left with a greater knowledge about fatherhood and a smile on their face!
