Christian Music Artists Celebrate Their Dads

By Hannah Goodwyn Senior Producer
With Father's Day fast approaching, it's not hard to find yourself recalling great memories with Dad. Word Entertainment artists, Point of Grace and Francesca Battistelli, recently shared some thoughts about their own fathers as we all take time to celebrate dads.

DENISE - Point of Grace:

Do you have a specific Father’s Day tradition?

“My dad LOVES to play golf. When I think about what we did on Father's Day the thing I remember most is that Dad would get to spend his day at the golf course. Then at some point during the day Mom would grill out and we would either have burgers or steaks. Good news is, my husband Stu likes that tradition as well except he would rather his boys come play golf with him.”

Do you have a special Father’s Day memory to share?

“A couple of years ago, we recorded the song ‘King of the World.’ We didn't have a final mix of it yet, but our producer made us a rough mix of the song. I was able to send that to him for Father's Day as a surprise. I think it meant a lot to him.”

LEIGH - Point of Grace:

Do you have a specific Father’s Day tradition?

“I didn't have a Father’s Day tradition growing up necessarily other than the normal dotting on my Dad with cards, and ceramic ashtray and so on. Now my little girl Darby, looks forward to any day she gets to do something special for her Dad. The tradition with her is something Yankee or N.Y Giants. Daddy never has too much of that stuff.”

Do you have a special Father’s Day memory to share?

“Many years after my Dad's remission...I wrote him a letter and read it to him on Father's day... The letter basically described how his perseverance and determination was such a heroic act! I am so proud of the fight within him to get better! Love you Dad!!!”

SHELLEY - Point of Grace:

Do you have a specific Father’s Day tradition?

“We let Dad sleep in on Father's Day (meaning mom gets up with daughter and doggie!), then we usually go to Dad's choice of restaurant for lunch after church. If he wants to play golf, he has a free pass, but usually, he just stays home and spends time with us because he is an AWESOME dad!”

What are your top 5 Father’s Day gift recommendations?

“I asked my husband what the five things he would most love…here is his list…”

1. Electric Smoker for smoking meats outside
2. iPad
3. 18 holes of golf
4. Car Wash gift certificates
5. Anything handmade by my daughter

Do you have a special quote about Father’s Day?

“I love this quote. It perfectly describes my father.. ‘He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.'" ~ Clarence Budington Kelland


Do you have a specific Father’s Day tradition?

“I am so blessed with a wonderful Dad, a fantastic father-in-law, and an amazing husband. They are wise, godly men who are a huge source of support and encouragement in my life. My Dad has been one of my biggest supporters from the very beginning. I always value his wisdom and his perspective. He always worked so hard to provide for my mom and I. My husband Matt is my rock--he leads our family, challenges me to love God more, and I am so blessed that we get to travel together. I love watching him be a dad to Eli. It is such a beautiful image of how God loves and cares for us...and it's pretty cute too! :)”
