Some men have been blessed to have great dads and others have had to rely on father-figures to step into their lives. For me, I had a brother-in-law and an uncle that stepped in during the critical teen years. Later in life, my father-in-law provided valuable guidance and Dr. Ken Canfield, a pioneer of the fathering movement in the early 1990’s continues to be a spiritual father for me today.
