Happy Father's Day! Today is the day where we take some time to recognize and show our appreciation for all of the great dads out there.

Dads are awesome! They protect us, they encourage us, and they're just fun. Plus, they can be pretty good teachers. Whether they are playing catch with us, teaching us how to fish or change our oil, or just giving us some advice, we've all learned something from our fathers. We asked listeners to share their stories of things that they have learned from their dads, here's some of what they had to say:

Lynn Schnoebelen Knight "Work hard, honesty, integrity, keep your promises. Be there for those you love. To laugh and have fun!"

Brooke Umbdenstock "I learned to not take life too seriously and to work hard hard in order to play hard. ❤️ he’s the best."

Christin Rodgers "My Dad taught me how to work on cars and you need to work hard for want you want. Always put God first!!"

Pam Deerberg Lochner "Be an honest, hard working person and you'll always be able to get a good night's sleep."

Leah Runyan "My Dad has taught me a lot, even though I’m not sure he knows it. The biggest thing that he has taught me is that you can’t worry about what may never happen it’s a waste of time and you can’t worry about what’s already happened because you can’t change it but you can learn from it."

DaLana Rigby "Work ethic and to show up 10 minutes early so you are never late."

Tamra Dowd "My dad taught me a lot! I think one of things I'm most greatful for is his teachings on cars. He taught me how to drive, how to change a tire, how to change my oil and spark plugs, everything that comes with simple car maintenance. It really has helped me so many times in life to know these things. When he was teaching me I wasn't so greatful (I didn't think girls should have to know car maintenance) but now that he's not with us anymore I see it was one of the greatest things he could have ever taught me."

Andrea Seeck "To find humor in everything. He is always making us laugh."

Kelsey Bumsted "You sleep in the bed you make.
He was born at night, but not last night.
My ass was grass and he was the lawnmower.
You are guilty by association.
People will remember you, but you get your choose how."

Lana Jordan-Wheeler "That country music ROCKS! Oh and how to pitch a  softball"

Those were just some of our favorites. You can see all of the comments in the post below.

Whether you're spending Father's Day with your dad, or not, let him know just how much he means to you. Happy Father's Day!
