I am so happy to nominate my wonderful, loving and humble husband, John Bowie,II as a Real Father, Real Man! John and I have been married for 16+ years now. In that time he has helped me to overcome the loss of a baby through miscarriage, and we’ve celebrated the births of 4 healthy children!
John is the most caring and giving man – there is nothing that our kids or I could need, that he wouldn’t make sure was provided for us. After each birth, john made sure I was able to stay home from work (I’m a teacher) for at least 12 weeks!
We have 3 girls and 1 boy. And he’s doing a wonderful job of teaching our son to become a man, and showing our daughters how a man should treat a woman. He even knows how to do the girls’ hair!
John is also the Christian education minister at our church, where he oversees the Sunday school classes. John also finds time to coach football, basketball, and sponsor the girls’ step team at the school where he teaches 5th and 6th grade science. He even coordinates step routines, and still participates in step shows!
As you can imagine, all of this has come with constant sacrifices. His humility always keeps him last on the last of “things to take care of”.
