Well, I finally finished my book. The Lord is so good! I had never considered the significance of fathers, until the Lord opened my eyes…
A spiritual journey in search of understanding and a mission to discover family roots set the stage for God’s most significant work in my life. Success can often be measured by a person’s life chances. When fathers withdraw from their children, they leave them with fewer opportunities to succeed. They also leave wounds deep and wide that can take years to heal. The struggle for survival and achievement is profound.
Growing up fatherless is disconcerting as children learn to navigate their world in a society quick to slap a label on them. From infancy, a child’s identity is framed by his family life, a self-fulfilling prophecy is set in motion. The factors involved are many and varied. The statistics show a high percentage of children growing up in single-parent homes, also grow up in poverty. This book presents personal stories of the struggles encountered through four generations of women raised without the love, the influence and the support of a father.
Discovering four generations of single parenting in my lineage was astonishing. Nonetheless, it was my reality. How will the Lord end this curse? Click here for a chance to win a free copy! Thank you for reading!
