GUEST: BRUCE WHEATON, father of host David Wheaton

This Father’s Day weekend, we are going to go back in time to 2010 to hear an interview with my own father, Bruce Wheaton.

Many of you know that God welcomed my dad into heaven February 1, 2023 at age 91. Our family has joy that he is in the eternal presence of the Savior he believed, loved, and obeyed. But we miss his presence with us tremendously, for he was a beloved husband, father, and friend to not just the members of his family but to many others as well.

My mom, who is 90, misses my dad most of all, which is understandable, considering they met when she was 15 and he 17 and were married for nearly 70 years. But God has given her a strong faith and a loving family to surround and help her. Her family, my siblings and grandkids, was taught and influenced greatly by my dad. So he is still strongly felt.

Proverbs 20:7 says, “A righteous man who walks in his integrity—How blessed are his sons after him.” That is the certainly the case with my siblings and me.

For many years, probably more than 15, my dad and/or my mom were guests on the program either on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. It seemed normal to me to talk to my dad about various issues because that’s what we did as a family in the regular course of life. So what you hear today is what we heard in our home.

If you are a father, we hope you have a most blessed Father’s Day and may you, with God’s grace, continue growing into the man, husband and father that God desires you to be.
