Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network get a call off their questions and answers Q&A with Holland. The devil's nightmare Homer Lee Gibbons, Junior you probably heard them on the podcast part one part two.
If you didn't go back and make sure you listen to his phenomenal store world boxing champion and then and a man of many talents Homer, welcome to Q&A with rolloff things are going to be back. Well, you know on this on the on the two shows we did together, man.
I threw a lot of questions at you and ask you a lot of questions but our list is also realized what a big fan you were growing up. In fact, headbutting your dad and doing all these wrestling moves. Here's your opportunity to ask me a few questions that I can be roughly related. It can be personal ministry. You don't go forward. But what your first question, Homer. Okay most memorable match for you movement my most memorable match man. We hear him insisting on the show because we had some some of the chain matches. I had against him were were pretty memorable. People don't realize was a real chain in your strapped wrist to wrist with that chain and no matter how much you try to control the links of the chain like you'd wrap around your face like you know to punch the guy with the in.
Invariably, there would be some loose links and add that would end up chipping off some some enamel or boot chipping the teeth and in fact, after retirement, I had to go to Dennis and get some cosmetic work done from some of those chips and the chain be wrapped around my mouth and everything else and so the matches was staying were certainly memorable. Dusty roads member dusty under.
During Mac and dreamed of what we need to be what you bring back memories where so when he and I when he and I did that, you know, the switch from from about you, baddest of the bad and then he and I became the superpower with that was incredibly memorable to other things real quick. I'll tell you two that were member of the first ever Great American Bash, 1985 nature boy Ric flair for the world heavyweight title and then last but not least, the best of seven series against Magnum to do member Megan TA well you nearly had the car wreck.
His career was shut. Cut short. But probably the most from the fans. The most often series or or matches rise the best-of-seven against Magnum so there's a few memories. Therefore, you will truly, I say I'm a member. Although the terms waiting for me to grow up and in that timeframe and watched what you down there and rent rental and doing the performance when it is amazing. I think that much to be automatically shown as everything is going on you wrestling in a part of my childhood locking the apartment is awful.
Yeah. And while you go the Right Pl., Atlantic Atlanta, Georgia, and got another question we have another question like to ask the user you have girls who knew me. The young man interested. How do you handle that that's that's a great question. I member that I know well I tell you that that looking back it's it's certainly and in the older girls. Taryn and Tawny remained.
I can, I remember you know the whole high school prom's right. I remember one time in particular, this young man came to pick up Karen.
There was my oldest Taryn for for the prom and and you not to come out onto the front porch just a one on one with dad and and so up and he drove up in a pretty classic car and in so I'm like, man. I admire your car.
You have out there and he's like oh yes sir. Abby was so proud of it right you might God help me get it restorative.
It was beautiful really was some like wow that's pretty amazing I go, hey, if I would come over your house. Next week is asking for the keys. Just let me take it out for a spin. You know you yup yup for that with the English and is is allowed to cut accountancy's like I am. I don't really know you is good give you my car coming this like the actual conversation goes. I don't know you want to give you the keys in my car I'm like wow what's that's interesting. I don't member him as a legless, pretty interesting to go. You know, because here's the deal, buddy. You're coming over here and you're taken something out that that is I don't really know you that well you taken something out.
I can just say right now is much more valuable to me than that car is to you and that's my daughter and I go I go so much. You know I would it take your car I would I would bring it back. My goal would be to bring back the same condition in which in which I drove it out of the out of the driveway. What would you bring my daughter whole body. You better bring her back the same way you take her out of this home today and use that yes sir okay so that that's that was one my other daughter Tawny I member we were to get ready at a friend's house and sold the other. Father and I were boasted on this couch across from the two young men taking out our girls and man I just I just I don't remember exactly the conversation I had with them other than it was probably very similar conversation. The girls were off getting ready. I only know what my daughter told me later right and is there in the car driving and and there like the one dude says hey you better sold on.
Remember what Mr. Cole offset now. I did remind him what I did for up as a profession. Homer let you know that I was a wrestler and I still have my chains so just FYI can't get away with that. Probably today's world, but so is so check this out. So so easy I would like like like 56 in a 55 of the guys you better slow down is like doing 56 he was UW member Mr. Cole offset so my daughters like yeah what did my dad said you guys anyway like I goes, I don't really remember I was so nervous I don't really remember what he said so so you know the day of the wrestler intimidation factor. Poe played a role and then real quack with my younger daughters Kendra and Colby little different scenario, and in fact that my youngest daughter Colby is getting getting married in and that she's the love the last wanted to get married today so she's getting married and and the young man that that might my approach is changed because some of that was BC right before Christ. So my approach is change with the young men they can call in a Kendra Colby that was with with the current young man was when he asked know for my daughter's hand in marriage.
I said okay I said will I said before I can bless that and an honor that marriage.
Two things I'm requesting a view one that that the two of you go through a bona fide a bona fide premarital counseling course with a certified counselor, not just the to you reading some book in discussing your hearing and and so the they did that they did that and then of course there's camps that that you know like Lex and I facilitate a chemical man camp and there's another ministry conquest that out. I was facilitate a part of for 12 years since in the other thing is I like you to go to good request go to You camp a man camp type type event and and think because I know having been a part of those ministries now for 15 years and that it just lays the heart of a man open and and allows them to be ministered to and equips them like guys come to me and I say here's our goal to send you home to be a godly man a godly father and a godly husband and and so my approach is change a changed a little bit with the younger girls, but those are couple funders trying to learn to be here because I know my girls looking the way I treat my wife and that's where they're going to expect.
Yes, I remember trying to make sure that Walt life just as well and in the new me with my son trying in my son's home and getting him to treat them with respect and then on erbium so the you know it. It sets a precedent for employees on a date when it weekly.
It just know it in and you just kinda hit on a real key Homer and for all those listening is is what you model what you model and how you treat their mother and that's what they're going to remember all you know more than anything that's what they're going to remember and and I know on that on that note on that in you know that mean you know my daughter says so my daughters have have come back in and said to me you know they they watched, you know what I modeled, growing, and when they were growing up, and in how he treated her mother how I treated other people and and that's what they that's what they remember and so even when they even when it came to choosing a husband so you hit on you when they came for the Gurkhas I girls you got girl you got five girls right so even when it came to choosing a husband number they told me say we we look that we look for a man that that like you and and let me say this to homework is this.
This might be helpful to one of the things I did with all of them growing up as I always had daddy daughter time always like one-on-one dad. Now we do things as a family, but always to daddy daughter time and so I would take him out a special dead daddy daughter dates and I am one of the things they remember more than anything is me opening the car door for like a old fashion deal right always opened the car door for them to to get in. Still do that to this day. And that's just part of my makeup part of who I am and they remember they even remember how I treated them on those daddy daughter dates and in their mind.
I want to find a husband treats me like my dad treats me and so that's a couple of the keys ethic that was a great question. Great question. So getting good answers. Well, I'm your creation are taken been doing very daughter Rick good yes and now you you reached daughter on grip and to client that it used their two covert daddy daughter date night.
Yeah I'm a girl. To date, our date night and then MEI's very humbling to launch that they respond to how I treat them and knowing that they expect me to treat them the way they treat their mother think I may symmetry them little entry well and answer our listeners out there. Those who have daughters and even if you have sons, some of these things still apply. Listen what we we have a tendency thing just throw money at our kids show or send them off and let send him down to be entertained or something that that's you know where were you were being a good parent I would. I would venture to say this, what children want more than anything to words quality time quality time.
That's what Homer is referring to. That's what I found to be effective in in the building of relationships with with my daughters and now my grandchildren is quality time.
More than anything they want your time in your attention. I mean, they walk in a room.
You know, listen that what you will. They walk in a room you would be wise to not just mute the television but shut it off for a moment and give them your on divided attention that will speak volumes.
Homer got time for one more question.
We have one more that you would like to put out there will request real quick note about quality time, and I agree thing, always because I was talking to a friend of mine at PVV only had quality time but not quantity.
You think that which one would you think is more important quality time or quantity. Another great question that you are firing a map me today Homer Kaman. Personally, I would opt for quality over quantity. Personally, I think, give, if again if if I more if I morph if they have my undivided attention I that means I set the cell phone down. I'm not check in the you know, social media, I'm not even want to go to a restaurant to go to restaurant with them. Many times I leave my phone in the car.
I don't even bring it in because I want to give them quality time and certainly the more time I get to spend with them is is is great. I just set the my my daughter when my daughters are a reminder for Father's Day weekend.
Her and I went away to Miami Florida should always want to go to Florida.
We went to Miami spent the entire Father's Day weekend together.
Just her not so she got both quantity and quality over that weekend and and one of my other daughters Kendra when she turned 13. This is something I consider to you and/or our listeners out there. Went when they were transitioning from child hood into you know it in moving into adolescence. Their teenage years. Your 13th birthday is pretty important right and typically and so I always plan a special trip. I got took one daughter to San Diego for for Bob. I'm just surprised or is it a pack a bag got a plane and flew to San Diego and we will bicycles up and down the coastline went to the amusement park with the old San Diego just you know we just we just had fun and so in some cases I might say quality and quantity, but I had that select one over the other. I would say quality time person so yeah my daughter and the girls turned 13 great amount to dinner at a movie. Please because the sundial yeah and laminar rotates is the restaurant rotates around guys. You drop 100 books easy got for dinner.
But I think, oh yeah, I took my 15-year-old when she turned 13 she dressed in a week to supplement suits and and she would address owners look beautiful and we went there in had dinner and enjoyed our time that were going had coffee at Starbucks and just come together. Man, it was also well now elements question is if making it up well to summarize our conversation today with my saying this for all of our listeners out there. If you not picking up on on these pointers create quality memories and moments with things that they'll remember formerly Givens Junior world boxing champion.
