When John was eleven years old, his dad comitted suicide. Little did he know the incredible impact that act would have on him 30 years later. Because he did not have the reassurance and affirmation that he craved from a father, for many years, John attempted to fill this void in many unhealthy ways. As a result, John became a social alcoholic, and like a lot of men, he believed the lie that your value as a man is based on how much money you make. He also worked extremely hard to create a persona that was totally false. It was only when John finally realized that he had some unresolved issues (a Father Wound) as a result of his dad's death and life-long absence that he totally surrendered to God, found forgiveness, and became a new man, husband, and father. John has been married for 17 years, has three beautiful daughters, and he is incredibly thankful for the second chance to be a father and husband for an amazing family.
John's mission is to spread the message about the father wound and the forgiveness and healing that comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. His goal is to help men walk in daily awareness of their significant and lifelong influence as fathers and to help them become better fathers. Contact John by email at john@TheFatherEffect.com.
