Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, is an expert in fatherhood--in part because his own "fathers" failed him so badly. His biological dad was an alcoholic. His stepfather deserted him. His foster father accused Jim of trying to kill him. All were out of Jim's life by the time he turned 13.

Isn't it odd--and just like God--that the director of the leading organization on family turned out to be a guy whose own background as a child was so pretty messed up? Or could it be that successful parenting is discovered not in the "perfect" peaceful household but in the midst of battles and messy situations, where God must constantly be called to the scene?

Using his own expertise, humor, and inexhaustible wealth of stories, Jim will show fathers that God can make them a good dad, a great dad, in spite of the way they've grown up or the mistakes they've made. It's not about becoming a perfect father. It's about trying to become a better father each and every day, building relationships through love, grace, patience, and fun--and helping children grow into the men and women they're meant to be.
