One of our favorite dads and all-around guys, Pastor Marvn Sapp, is one proud poppa. "Having dinner with my family.... My girls and my niece," said the the singer and pastor via twitter as he shared photos of his beautiful family. The dedicated single pop tweeted a couple pics of the kids enjoying their special time together on Father's Day.


Sapp posted this pic and tweeted: "My son sitting at the head of the table he thinks he's the man. Does he look like Drake to u?"


We're not too sure about the Drake comparison. But, aside from all the fun twit pics, we were particularly moved by a link he shared to a sobering April 2011 article featured on the article talks about how he is coping with the loss of his wife, MaLinda. In it, he is honest about what it's like to mourn publicly.

“People are looking at your response and looking at how you act in the midst of what you’re dealing with. As a pastor, having parishioners—a thousand people who submit to my authority—they are looking to see how I was going to respond. My response would set the tone for our entire ministry. I had to be transparent enough to shed tears.”

He is a fine example indeed and an inspiration to fathers everywhere. The EEW BUZZ team continues to pray for Pastor Sapp and his family.
