A well-written article that contrasts the way Jake's father brought him up and the way that Jake intends to bring up his son. You did a good job showing that Jake saw that God is essential in the life of a child, without the bitterness of his father's aloofness and Godlessness.

A touching story of a father's love, and a flashback of another father who he still had feelings for...yes, conflicted feelings is a good title. Nicely done.

Such deep emotion here and so excellently expressed. So many can put themselves right into this story. Thanks for sharing. Brilliantly written!

"...only comfort that God is just."

Very moving, well written story. I like it very much.
God bless.

You weave the stories of the two fathers together so perfectly, so seamlessly! This flowed so well, and I really felt like I got to know both dads in a very special way. I loved this from beginning to end!

The paragraph that grabbed me the most was the one where he wished he'd met his dad on his level--in the pub. That just tugged at my heart--how many Christians have missed opportunities because of their own silly self-righteous qualms?

Beautiful writing.
