Its never too late to be a better father
Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, is an expert in fatherhoodin part because his own "fathers" failed him so badly. His biological dad was an alcoholic. His stepfather deserted him. His foster father accused Jim of trying to kill him. All were out of Jim's life by the time he turned 13.
Isnt it oddand reminiscent of the hand of Godthat the director of the leading organization on family turned out to be a guy whose own background as a kid and son were pretty messed up? Or could it be that successful parenting is discovered not in the perfect, peaceful household but in the midst of battles and messy situations, where God must constantly be called to the scene?
That is the mystery unraveled in this book. Using his own expertise, humor, and inexhaustible wealth of stories, Jim will show you that God can make you a good dad, a great dad, in spite of the way youve grown up and in spite of the mistakes youve made. Maybe even because of them.
Its not about becoming a perfect father. Its about trying to become a better father, each and every day. It's about building relationships with your children through love, grace, patience, and funand helping them grow into the men and women theyre meant to be.
