being a dad

What does it mean to be a family guy? Comedian Jeff Foxworthy shares how you might be a family guy if…you are intentional about spending time with your kids. And that you may need to stop doing things for a season in order to make being a dad your priority.

Jeff Foxworthy reminds us: “Life is about choices and consequences. And nothing else that I do in my lifetime is gonna matter a hundred years from now. It’s not gonna matter how many records I sold or how many books, but the kids that I leave behind and the kids that they have, that’s gonna be the only thing that matters a hundred years from now. And so they were always the priority.”

So on today’s podcast, Jeff Foxworthy shares what else a family guy does.

  • It’s really great to hear the legacy message from someone as successful as Jeff. He has all the accolades to claim success and has even affected generations of people, but the legacy he cares about is father to son. Pretty cool.
