Listen on as Ray and I discuss how to tackle this troublesome trend in today‘s society.

Tools To Ready the Journey

A Father’s Guide to a Faith-Filled Journey

TRJ – Fathers Guide is comprised of 13 standalone chapters, all include a study guide and take away. The chapters are short, powerful, and easy to understand. They are intended to be used as tools handed on as strong conversation starters. Before we can lead, we must first follow… I hope that this blessing will build up not only men, but the communities around them, and the faith-filled families within them. Enjoy the read!
