It will make you a better dad, and it may even help you forgive your own father for the mistakes he inevitably made.\" Neil Chethik Executive Director, The Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning Author, FatherLoss and VoiceMale \"WOW!!! \'Healing a Father Wound\' was by far the most impactful and emotional section of any book I have ever read. I can\'t even describe how deeply this teaching affected me. The feeling of \'choked up\' stayed throughout reading the section, and keeps coming back even now. I realized clearly how my own father wound has affected my entire life, and still does to this day. It also made me realize how the healing process is a daily reward to me and my boys, and so worth the effort. My heart was smiling while my eyes filled with tears. Awesome book!\" Patrick McMillan Founder, TeachingHappiness.com Author, An Exercise in Happiness for Kids
