LOS ANGELES—Popular author, speaker, blogger and podcast host Jerrad Lopes was recently featured on the Hallmark Channel’s weekday morning show, “Home & Family.” Lopes discussed the inspiration behind his latest Harvest House book, Dad Tired And Loving It: Stumbling Your Way To Spiritual Leadership, with co-host Debbie Matenopoulos and special guest host, Larissa Wohl.
The Emmy Award-nominated “Home & Family” airs daily on the Hallmark Channel. Hosted by Debbie Matenopoulos and Cameron Mathison, the two-hour show originates from a fully functioning New England colonial-style home built on the Universal Studios lot in Los Angeles. Now in its 7th season, the show offers viewers advice in the areas of home improvement, parenting, health and fitness. Hallmark Channel, owned by Hallmark Cards Inc., is Crown Media Family Networks’ flagship 24-hour cable television network, distributed nationwide to 86 million homes.
Jerrad Lopes served as a pastor for more than a decade before launching the Dad Tired blog and podcast out of his own desire to be a better husband and father. The podcast has featured interviews with such renowned Christian leaders as Bob Goff, Jon Acuff, Paul David Tripp and Jefferson Bethke, among many others, and has been downloaded more than a million times since its debut nearly four years ago.
The Dad Tired movement offers a range of resources to help men embrace their responsibilities as spiritual leaders, drawing young husbands and fathers from all walks of life into a vital community of encouragement and intentionality. A sought-after speaker at men’s ministry events around the country, Lopes is also the author of Fully Engaged: 10 Practical Ways To Point Your Family Toward Jesus. He and his wife Leila live in Portland, Oregon, with their three children.
