Guest: Stephen Kendrick
When Christian filmmaker Stephen Kendrick speaks at a men's conference, he asks, “How many of you never heard your father tell you he loved you?” Tragically, half the hands go up. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and Stephen discuss his recent documentary, Show Me the Father, that centers on the impact and influence of dads in the home. Stephen explains that there’s a direct connection between a dad’s words and the identity in the heart of his child. Stephen insists that it’s a game-changer when a father loves his child in word and deed, like our Heavenly Father loves us.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 19.5 million children, more than 1 in 4, live without a father in the home. When a dad checks out or leaves the home, it's like a bus driver leaving the bus, and the abandoned passengers end up in a ditch. On today’s edition of Family Talk, filmmaker and producer, Stephen Kendrick, gives us hope. The film he made with his two brothers titled Show Me the Father, features five true stories of wounded dads and broken homes, and how God stepped in and brought forgiveness and restoration. The solution to America’s crippling fatherlessness is to reconnect people to their loving Heavenly Father, and inspire dads to step into their God-given roles, in this moment.
