Do less. Be more.

Beloved is a corner of The Intentional Dad for young adults being fathered by God. Here you will find stories of initiation, apprenticeship, struggle, and triumph from the lives of young adults living intimately with God. These stories are offered as a gift of encouragement for your own journey and as an invitation to share the adventure in community with us.

Initiation is a journey of intentionality toward adulthood as a beloved son or daughter living in intimate apprenticeship with Jesus. But initiation is more than a one time thing. God is always growing us up. Which means we are always learning, growing, training, and healing. So, whether you are just beginning to discover initiation from your Heavenly Father or have known his fathering for some time, you belong here. Join us as we walk the "narrow road" together.
