Clint's subsequent longing to belong, contradicted by an even deeper longing to escape the pain in his life, shaped him into an angry husband and father who hurt deeply those he loved most.Then God stepped into Clint's life with experiences amazing and powerful. At age 35, he finally begged God for freedom from the hidden forces which plagued him. Confession, repentance, forgiveness and honesty became the watchwords of his journey back. Now, he has spent more than 30 years ministering to and professionally caring for children with fatherless hearts.This encouraging book appeals to the universal need for a father's love, to those who have lost their father, to counselors, to readers of first-person stories, to anyone running from the truth, to the parents of prodigals, to those in emotional pain and to those who wish to change past curses to blessings.
