    1. How are you celebrating your dad this Father’s Day? How I celebrate my dad every Father’s Day is by showing him how much I appreciate him, and love him, even when we have disagreements or I feel like he’s being too uptight.

    2. What Father’s Day traditions do you have? Father’s Day has passed, lol, but we always go to his favorite place to eat, and then ask him what he wants to do that day.

    3. What is your dad’s favorite kind of gift to receive? He loves receiving gift cards to places, and he loves being surprised by us taking him to a really special place, or giving him the gift of an experience he can have. (Like scuba-diving, I.E)

    4. What’s one trait you get from your dad, or that you have in common? We’re both shy and bashful when it comes to people and talking in groups. (Though I love being on a stage, and performing, and he hates it) We also have the same sense of humor, and I get my eyes from him.

    5. What’s one special memory you have with your dad that you’ll never forget? He always makes time for me, and takes me out on daddy-daughter dates to ask me about my life.

    6. What’s the best piece of advice your dad has ever given you? My dad has shown me so much about the kind of man I should marry sand what a real man who is worthy of marriage really looks like.

    7. What’s your favorite way to spend time with your dad? Going out to eat, getting ice cream and sitting around talking about life.

    8. What quality about your dad do you most admire? His Faith is amazing. Even when he gets upset, he always comes back and repents and genuinely does better. He gently rebukes us and his faith in god is just amazing. I’ve seen him grow SOO much during the past years of my life that it’s proof to me how loving and faithful God is.

    9. How has your dad’s relationship with Jesus inspired your own? Lol, see above! It shows me what an amazing God we have and how our Faith can grow so much if we trust him.

    10. If you could give your dad any gift in the world, what would it be? A trip around the whole world.

    1. How are you celebrating your dad this Father’s Day?
    We went out to eat as a family, and then just spent some down-time at home.

    2. What Father’s Day traditions do you have?
    We always go out to eat somewhere; my dad picks the place.

    3. What is your dad’s favorite kind of gift to receive?

    I’m not biologically related to him (I’m adopted), but I definitely picked up his weird sense of humor somewhere along the way.

    My dad’s a strong Christian, and whenever I ask him questions or am wondering about something, I always come to him and he answers the best he can.

    Ah, geez, I have no idea! Probably some type of trip–he loves travel.

    5. What’s one special memory you have with your dad that you’ll never forget?

    10. If you could give your dad any gift in the world, what would it be?
    A better life. A life where he didn’t have work 65 to 75 hours every week just to make ends meet.

    Posted by ComputerDamsel on June 14, 2014 at 13:13

    I love my dad so much I really have to make a comment.

    1. How are you celebrating your dad this Father’s Day?
    Since my mother will be out of town this Father’s Day, I plan to be really helpful with my younger sisters. This can be difficult because I know my father would also want me to study.

    2. What Father’s Day traditions do you have?
    My dad’s mother sends cookies for almost every holiday, including Father’s Day. Other than that, we don’t have any traditions.

    3. What is your dad’s favorite kind of gift to receive?
    Nothing. We try to give him gifts, but he really wants nothing.

    4. What’s one trait you get from your dad, or that you have in common?
    We share personality. In terms of Myers-Briggs types, we’re both INTJs. We’re both obsessed with study.

    5. What’s one special memory you have with your dad that you’ll never forget?
    Anything involving our debate team, especially since he was our coach.

    6. What’s the best piece of advice your dad has ever given you?
    I don’t think I can list one, but I think the most important “piece” is anything that reminds me that I need to work hard.

    7. What’s your favorite way to spend time with your dad?
    Anytime when it’s just me and him, such as when we’re traveling or when I need his help with my homework and he has time.

    8. What quality about your dad do you most admire?
    His intelligence. He’s a part of MENSA, so I know he’s smart. He has the answer to almost any question. When he doesn’t have an answer, he uses his research skills to find one quickly.

    9. How has your dad’s relationship with Jesus inspired your own?
    There are many ways my dad inspired my own relationship with Jesus, one of the most important ways is by introducing a the Liturgy of the Hours, which is a prayer said maybe six times a day and mostly has psalms, so I can be reminded to put God first at every hour of the day.

    10. If you could give your dad any gift in the world, what would it be?
    Two extra hours every day. Hours exist in the world, right?

    If I could give my dad something that isn’t in the world, I would give him a time machine, so he could stop all time in the universe when people give him too much at work, but I’m sure he can come up with a lot more things to do with it.
