Overview

A Father for Our Father
The Foundation for a Flourishing Family

We are losing the battle for our children!! Family is no longer defined as father, mother, and child and this trend must stop!! “Dysfunction” is the buzzword describing our families. Rather than fight this trend, we are accepting it.

The cultural shift from a God-fearing, family-oriented society has forced our children to fend for themselves. Our children are depending on us to do the right thing and, frankly, they deserve better than we are giving them.

Consider the facts:
• 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes
• 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes
• 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes

These are just a few of the shocking statistics linked to the impact of a missing father in the lives of our children. In A Father for Our Father, we will discover how the “Lord’s Prayer” is more than an outline for prayer but also an outline for establishing a flourishing family.

While this book is written with men in mind, women will discover the vital role they play in facilitating the changes necessary for men to become who they were created to be. And young men will find help defining their future roles as well. We will discuss the reference, the motivation, the role, and the calling that is unique to men, and clearly identify their responsibilities.

Join me in discovering the power and influence that only you possess.
We can restore our families! We can reverse this trend!

Learn what it means to be A Father for Our Father!

What an awesome tool and guide for fathers of our day to help make their families a strong close-knit unit. It teaches so well how to really love their wives and children! It is a great guide to follow to help raise kids in this difficult society!

As a woman, I found this book to be very helpful in discovering the man I aspire to marry and father my children. Too many women don't have a good concept of how important their relationship is long-term. We think we'll "change them" once we marry them. If you're thinking about getting married (or if you are married and thinking about starting a family) READ THIS BOOK FIRST!!! And, if you are already married and have a family, read it anyway. It's never too late to learn. Whatever your situation, I recommend you read this together and support each other in it's teachings.

Being a father of three children, all of them out on their own, this book has brought to my attention the important things I missed. This book also taught me it is never to late for Godly wisdom, or intervention. This book has also taught me how important as, Godly men, we truly can be in the lives of the children and youth around us without Godly men in their lives. This book is challenging, provoking, enlightening, while being written in a manner that flows and is possible to read without being over- powering. I would advise Pastors, Teachers, Men's leaders, Youth leaders, along with any Mothers or Women, concerned about the Family, to read this book. It is amazing how a prayer that most of us learned in our youth has been transformed into one of our greatest guides for raising a Family!!!!

The information was informative and powerful. I think every man should get a copy and read it with his wife. I believe the author when he says we can change the world one family at a time. I know it changed my life. I'm telling everyone I know to get this book.
