Welcome to the Wall of Fathers

To Live the Legacy

The Mentor Discover Inspire “Wall of Fathers” is an online forum – full of class and honor – for men to submit pictures with their fathers, pictures with their children, as well as contribute any personal sentiments related to fatherhood and fathering. 


• To hold high in reverence that which was handed down to you from your father, your father’s father, your father’s father’s father – the good, the bad, the ugly.

• To faithfully bring forth those gifts in the way that best reflects your identity and most respects those who have gone before.

• To honor a legacy.

• To live a legacy.  

Welcome to the Wall of Fathers  … 


Would you like to publicly honor fatherhood this Father’s Day? 

• ONE:  Submit a photo with you and your children or you and your dad, along with a brief one-liner caption about a memory.

• TWO:  Offer a favorite memory; tell a dad story. With words or a video.

• THREE: Answer one of these questions: Why are fathers important to a family? As a father, what is one tip you can give to other fathers out there? How would you like to honor your own father?


Submissions go to Jim Ellis at JimEllis1103@Gmail.com by Sunday, June 9. The chosen pieces will be featured on “The Wall of Fathers“ on Father’s Day in June 2024 at this site, which will be updated to include you and yours.

3 Questions About My Dad

 1. What’s the best thing about your dad?

He is committed and dedicated to his vision. In order to get free of debt, he bootstrapped and built the house we grew up in. Many people told him it wouldn’t be possible with his budget. 

2. What has your dad taught you about life?

You can make things happen that others will tell you isn’t possible, sometimes you have to be a little stubborn, and attention to detail is important… even for a big picture man. 

3. How will you continue his legacy?

I will continue to drive forward toward my goals in the face of doubt, I will get debt free, and I will become a consistent and reliable provider. Thank you for the opportunity to reflect on this.

Father’s Day In Heaven

I love you and I miss you, Dad, and though you’ve passed away, you’ll never be forgotten, for I think of you each day. If heaven celebrates this day how special it will be. A gathering of the many dads upon our family tree. Your father and grandfather and great grandfather too. How wonderful it is, if they can spend this day with you. May you know how much I love you, though I’m here and you are there. Happy Father’s Day in heaven to the best dad anywhere!

How Would You Introduce Your Dad?

My Dad

Michael Macdonald

June 2017

He wasn’t faster than a speeding bullet, 
but he was quick to come to my defense. 
Unable to leap tall buildings,  
but could lift my spirits when life didn’t make sense. 

He did not have the strength of a locomotive, 
but the size of his heart could crush any man.
He faced all that the world could throw at him 
and always told us it was God’s glorious plan.

He didn’t wear a cape, a mask,
or have any super powers.
But ask any of his friends,
he was there in their darkest hour. 

So now he has gone to heaven, 
and in God’s arms he will be. 
But this loving father of eight 
was a superman to me.

How would you introduce your dad?

One person I could talk to and count on for best advice and guidance.

Imitate something your father would typically say.
Here’s my credit card, fill up your car check your oil, get us slurpees make sure you get oil if you need it.

What valuable lesson did your dad teach you?
If you are going to do something do it right and do it to the best of your capabilities.

What did you most want to teach me about life?
That I love you and what to teach you everything I’ve learned about life hard work and integrity.

How have I done?
You listen to me and enjoy all the fun and hard work activities we do.

How can I best honor your legacy?
Never forget you are Ukrainian and celebrate the Ukrainian things like food and flag, never forget the grave sites where I am buried and my father and my grandfather. These men taught me a lot and I’ve passed it down to you.
