The demise of the father's role in the family affects every aspect of society around the globe. But Xulon Press author Waylon Ward says that restoring healthy fathers to families in every country of the world would help resolve the majority of issues that threaten us today. In Who's Your Daddy? Healing the Father Wound ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-674-1), the author's new release, he issues a wake-up call to men and women everywhere, challenging them to understand the crisis of fatherlessness in the world and to examine its impact on the culture and in individual lives. Ward also identifies the different types of father wounds, the specific scars that men and women carry, and provides personal steps for healing and experiencing God's love.
Says Ward, "I hope readers will grasp the importance of the father in the parenting equation and find healing for whatever lack of fathering they experienced. I hope that readers will see the connection between their God image and the relationships they shared with their earthly fathers. I also want to challenge readers to work to change the attitude towards fathering in our culture."
Ward, an experienced pastoral counselor and life coach who has focused on healing the wounds of father deprivation for more than 30 years, compiled both his research and clinical data to support the premise of the book. From his own childhood and the life experiences of thousands of people he has counseled, he has learned how to enable individuals to find healing from these wounds by coming home to the loving heart of God. He also established the Global Fathering Initiative (GFI) in 2008 to address the fathering crisis in our world and provide healing for wounded men, women, and children.
