TALES FROM FATHERHOOD
The fourteen dad authors of Tales from Fatherhood have a combined 874 years of fatherhood experience! This collection of stories of triumph over the seen and unseen challenges of fatherhood is sure to inspire, motivate, and challenge many of the “conventions” about the blessed assignment of fatherhood.
You will read stories from fathers who had to create their own blueprint for raising and loving their children, some who grew up in loving homes with their own fathers as that blueprint and those who would mark their relationship status with their dad as “it’s complicated.” The journey leads to discovering the importance of faith, developing a vision of fatherhood, being truly present in the lives of our children and exposing them to greatness. You will identify with the uncertainty that every father feels when guiding their children and how to build strong, genuine, and lasting connections. Each story reveals many of the roots of being an amazing father: love, strength, determination, faith, perseverance, and hope. Tales from Fatherhood aims to create a virtual village of “Fab-Dads” who lean on and learn from one another, all for the benefit of future generations.
