Really, I'm just a storyteller.
In more than 30 books and having spoken to audiences in 20 states, I'm humbled to say my stories deliver unexpected takeaways that often change lives.
Dads connect with their kids. Marriages are strengthened. Grandparents make lifelong connections. God’s plan unfolds. Optimism sneaks in.
My latest book, Girl Dad, was co-authored with my amazng daughter. I wrote 10 solid chapters on all kinds of issues girls face -- making friends, hopes and dreams, self-image, boyfriends, this fallen world -- and Rae Anne wrote her own perspective. (Often including stuff I got wrong or missed completely!)
If you're a girl dad or love a girl dad, it's a suprising and enlightening resource. I promise.
