ManTime Men's conference wrapped up yesterday around 1:00PM at the Adam's Mark Hotel ballroom with a message from Mike Cavanaugh of Elim Fellowship, a communion service, and prayer for men to be able "make love felt" to those around them including their wives and children. The conference was designed to equip and strengthen men in their walks with God. March 24-25, 2012 @ the Adam's Mark,
Cavanaugh explained being a father is not related to your age or wisdom or spiritual maturity, it is related to being able to impart something to someone else, it is about being able to empower and strengthen and build others up. To do this there is some skills we have to learn. We need to be able to make our love felt to those around us. As a man we have been created to put a deposit into others. There are people around us who are like open wounds and full of potential but it will never happen unless we put something in them.
- Focused attention- giving someone full and undivided attention-makes someone feel like they are the most important person in the world to you. Eye contact, full attention, there is something that happens where the other person is able to feel the love.
- Meaningful touch
- Affirming words- the tongue has the power of life and death
- Picture a special future for your loved one- every child comes into the world believing they are meant to do something special. The fathers job is to “discover” them and call out the incredible possibilities in them.
