Increased rates of drug use, gang affiliation, teenage pregnancy, and a decline in practicing and passing on of the Christian faith all have one common factor: an absent father. How did we get to this crisis of fatherhood and what can we do to send the statistics in the opposite direction? Kent Evans, the founder of Manhood Journey, shares his important thoughts in this episode.
Questions we cover in this episode:
- What do you feel is impacting fatherhood in today's society?
