Father’s Day Special!

Father’s Day is a very special day that should be celebrated worldwide. After all, they are also so important to the development of a child.

But what about those who grew up in a fatherless home? How does this affect them and how can they cope with it?

I wanted to do something special for Father’s Day, give them a big shout out today; then share something that’s been on my heart for a while now.

This topic hits close to me because I myself grew up without one. For today's episode, I want to share with you the challenges I faced growing up without a father and even being a father, as well as give tips on how to overcome this. 

With that being said, let’s dive straight into this topic and for anyone listening who also lives in a fatherless home, I hope this episode is able to help you.
