Learned something I didn’t know before from the DG pastor’s conference this week.
Before he lifted off into space, Husband recorded a series of videos of him leading family worship for every one of the days he would spend away from them in space. He also led a weekly prayer group at his church called Dads in the Gap.
A portion of a videotape of his was played at the memorial service at his church. In it he said this:
If I ended up at the end of my life having been an astronaut, but having sacrificed my family along the way or living my life in a way that didn’t glorify God, then I would look back on it with great regret. Having become an astronaut would not really have mattered all that much. And I finally came to realize that what really meant the most to me was to try and live my life the way God wanted me to and to try and be a good husband to Evelyn and to be a good father to my children.
Joel Beeke referenced Husband and his passion for leading his home in family worship in a message well worth hearing by every family man.

May God give us men who stand in the gap for their wives and children.
