What Is Your Calling?

The Calling

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for The Calling Wines. I received a product sample and promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Father’s Day is less than a week away! How do you celebrate Fathers Day in your family? Does your family have any special traditions? For my family has always been an important part of my life so whether we go out for dinner to a nice restaurant or enjoy a barbecue at home it is always a day surrounded by family. Last year on New Years Day, my dad had passed away so things have been a little rough when the holidays come around, My dad has been an inspiration for me. For more on my relationship with my dad, check out Missing Dad This Holiday Season. My dad was always an important part of my life, he taught me the importance of family and working hard to accomplish the goals you set in your life.

The Calling Wine2For Jim Nantz and Peter Deutsch, their dads were also an inspiration to you and played a similar role in their lives. Jim Nantz, co-authored the New York Times bestseller Always By My Side in 2008 which chronicled his father’s long struggles with Alzheimers disease. Jim, followed two callings in his life. First one was to become a sportscaster and became an Emmy Award winning commentator and a five-time National Sportscaster of the Year. For Peter, his calling was to help turn a small family business which was founded in 1981 by his father Bill Deutsch into one of the most prestigious wine companies in the world. Fate brought these two together and because of their fathers being an inspiration to them, they found a new calling. They formed a partnership and produced hand-crafted wines from select Dutton Ranch vineyards in the prestigious Russian River Valley appellation. These wines are held to a standard of superior quality and style that define Jim and Peter’s life.

GIVEAWAY: A signed copy of Jim Nantz’s book Always By My Side. “Entrants are only eligible to win once per sweepstakes as part of a campaign sponsored by Dad Central Consulting.” Contest ends Thursday, June 19th. Good luck. Enter to win here in a Rafflecopter giveaway!
