“The family is the oldest institution of God’s wonderful workshop. In order for a family to function well, husbands and wives must fulfill their mission. Fathers’ responsibilities as the head of the family are often underestimated. The theme of fatherhood is therefore very timely, and yet so little emphasized in our society. Being a good father need not be hard if you know how to do it. It’s great that there is a new book that can help men to better fulfill the role of fathers.” – Daniel Fajfr, Pastor and President of Církev bratrská (Church of Brethren, Evangelical Free Church of the Czech Republic), Prague, Czech Republic

Czech dads are especially needy after people were told by the communists that family isn’t that important anymore. The relevant and practical advice in BBDT will be an inspiration and a challenge for Czech fathers.” – Jonathan Lobel, Teacher at Gymnázium Beskydy Mountain Academy, Frýdlant nO, Czech Republic

Be a Better Dad Today is in its sixth printing and has sold almost 80,000 copies in North America. The book drew rave reviews from dozens of America’s best known fathers, including Governors Jeb Bush and Sam Brownback, Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman, Pastors Tim Keller and Luis Palau as well as CEOs and regular dads across the country and around the world (see below). The Slayton’s are giving 100% of all royalties from the book to fatherhood and family charities. Please see for more info.

Be a Better Dad Today! has tons of practical tips for every kind of father, yet there is one overarching message for ALL dads: It is never too late to become the best dad you can be…because fatherhood is the most important role you will ever have.
