So the American Freedom Defense Initiative made this series of horribly offensive posters about Muslims in America and plastered them all over public transportation in a number of cities. In response, the Colorado Muslim Society made these posters to promote love and understanding, something we could all do a little more of.

Here’s the hate poster:


Here’s the great response:

“We know you don’t know us, but we watch you every morning…”

Fathers are the most important male figures in a girl’slife.The way they treat women molds our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us more than we could ever know.

And as this story can attest to, dads have the power to influence more than just their own daughters. In a Facebook post by Love What Matters,Lorena Juregui de Birdy shares a heartwarming taleof how her husband’s everyday actions toward their daughter hailed him “Super Dad” to a group of middle school “Super Fans” that he didn’t even know were watching.

It reads:

This is a letter my husband received on his vehicle by students at my son’s middle school. See, my son’s middle school is located next to my daughter’s elementary school attached by a concrete pathway between the lots. Every morning my husband parks his car at my son’s middle school parking lot and allows our son to walk to his 7th grade courtyard while he takes our daughter out of her car and walks her to her school. Every morning our daughter drags her dad by the hand to her school and every morning my husband holds her backpack and any other toy she insists on walking with them. As my husband returned from dropping off our daughter one morning, he spotted the attached letter on his windshield. It’s true what they say, it’s the little things that matter most and sometimes go unnoticed, it took the innocence of a few middle school “Super Fans” to remind me of the amazing father my children have and of the wonderful husband I married.

“You show what a real man can do for his daughter. We love to watch you and every day our hearts melt just watching you and your daughter walking. The girls and I want someone like you to marry us one day.”

Sheesh. How precious is THAT?! I think my heart just grew three sizes.

Thanks, Super Dad, for showing today’s generation of budding young women that they deserve to be treated like the daughters of the most high King that they are.

“She is more precious than rubies.”
~Proverbs 31:10~

She saw her 1-year-old little boy and 3-year-old daughter sitting in the front seat …

“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3).

We’ve all heard the verse, but it’s so much different when you see it come to life before your very eyes. Last week, Kelsie Perkins took a photo of her 1-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter sitting on their daddy’s lap in his cop car praying their little hearts out.

With hands clasped tightly, eyes closed and heads bowed in childlike reverence, they pray for their dad Jordan Perkins every day before he leaves for his shift at theCleveland County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina.

Her husband has always been a champion of prayer in the home, and he encourages his little ones to pray as part of everyday life and “not just whenever something goes wrong.”

“The kids don’t know the dangers of his job, but it’s something we do, for God to help him with the decisions that he has to make, to have compassion on the people that he’s going to help, whenever he goes into work,” Kelsie told TODAY.

Even though these tots don’t have a clue about the pending dangers their father is about face when he leaves for work, they know their Heavenly Father has his backand that really is the most beautiful thing.

If only we all could take such a stance in our prayer life. As adults, we let fear, rationale and the realities of a cruel world seep into our brains and warp the perspective we have of a God whose love and power far transcends each of our worries.

After Kelsie posted the photo on Facebook, Jordan’s employer got ahold of it and decided to share it as well. The priceless picture has since been shared thousands of times, and the mommy of two is pretty shocked by the viral response it’s receiving.

“I honestly don’t understand. For us, that’s something very normal, and I know we can’t be the only family that prays with an officer before he goes into work,” she told TODAY. “It’s really amazing how God has used the photo to touch so many people and inspired them to pray not only for our family but for other officers that they don’t know.”
