If you didn’t have the best father growing up, all is not lost. Pastor Louie Giglio helps provide some perspective about how our relationship with our fathers colors how we view our relationship with God as a Heavenly Father. Louie also shed some light on how kids who have suffered at the hands of an abusive father view themselves and their abuse.
We dove into the 6 types of fathers Louie outlines in his new book, Not Forsaken.
- The ABSENT father
- The ABUSIVE father
- The PASSIVE father
- The PERFORMANCE-BASED father
- The ANTAGONISTIC father
- The EMPOWERING father
You might see some of your dad in here, but Louie was quick to point out that change is possible and forgiveness is necessary, not just for your dad, but for you.
