One of the messages Jay Payleitner conveys very clearly is one of purpose.

Regardless of how you acquired this volume, there’s one thing that must be acknowledged. This book is not really the gift. The gift is how a man response to the idea of being a father. Will you accept it or will you set it aside? Will you see the priceless value of your fathering role? Will you unwrap such a gift, cherish it, and give it priority status in your own life?

Dad, in the end, when it comes to your children, the real gift is you. -Jay Payleitner
