Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast I spoke with Michael Van Pelt, a ONE Way Life Coach who works to serve men that have misinterpreted the direction of their lives and help to get them moving in a new direction. Michael and I talk about being a dad to a daughter but also about how he is working with dads in many different ways to help them refocus their lives in a more positive direction.
This episode is supported by American Underdog, the upcoming film starring Zachary Levi, star of Shazam! and the TV show Chuck, as Kurt Warner, the Hall of Fame quarterback widely considered the most successful NFL player who was never drafted. Kurt famously rose from stocking shelves during the graveyard shift at a grocery store to become a Super Bowl champion and two-time NFL MVP, and the production team has done a great job of bringing that story to life.
The movie opens Saturday, December 25th (Christmas Day!), and one of its best features is that you can enjoy it without knowing a thing about football. There are a ton of fatherhood themes throughout, along with enough messages of love, perseverance, and family to rename it “American Dad Blog.” The story culminates in the Rams’ extraordinary championship season of 1999, before Kurt’s five youngest kids were born, and in his interview with Dad 2.0, Kurt mentioned what a thrill it was to watch it with them and give them an idea of what his life was like before they came along.
To listen to that interview with Kurt and Zachary and learn about Early Access screenings in your area on December 17, 18, and 19, listen to Episode 104 of the Dad 2.0 podcast at dad2.com/podcast.
