Author John Burns, cohost of the international program Family Success, shares how when men discover the miracle of a father’s hug, they can change the life of their children forever.
Something miraculous happens when a father wraps his arms around his child, almost as if a heart-shaped hole begins to fill with the miracle substance called “life.” When a father learns how to love their children unconditionally and express that love through the miracle of a hug, they will find that the miracle that blesses their children will bless them as well.
In the dangerous world children are growing up in today—addiction, teen pregnancy, eating disorders, plummeting self-image, and a multitude of other threats can harden their lives in a second. This guide to discovering the power of a hug from a father and understanding the complex issues children face today shares a message of hope, healing, and unconditional love.
John Burns outlines revolutionary concepts that can redirect the life of a child and reinforce the teachings and values that fathers everywhere are striving to instill.
