Men and Boys Growing In Their Faith Together | 151

On today’s podcast, we’re going to be addressing a question that I get a lot from members of TTD365. We talk so much about growing in our own walk with the Lord and allowing that growth to naturally overflow into our relationship and discipling efforts with our children, and women seem to find a lot of ways to connect with others and grow in community. That seems a lot harder to come by for our husbands, though, doesn’t it?
Mark Hancock is the founder of Trail Life, USA and he has great insight for families, especially dads, as they navigate the discipleship relationship with their sons.

Unshackled from the classroom, boys and dads come to life in an environment where faith and understanding grow naturally.
