Real_Men_Raise_CHAMP_Cover_for_KindleREAL MEN RAISE CHAMPIONS
and EVERY CHAMPION NEEDS A COACH – These are the messages that author J. A. Faulkerson wants to communicate to today’s fathers. With 24 million children in America – one out of three – living without their biological fathers in the home (not to mention the forces that are mobilizing to rob them of a peaceful and prosperous future), the time for REAL MEN to exert their God-given power, authority and influence is now. Gone are the days when fathers allow their self-worth to be measured by hefty paychecks. Today’s challenges require fathers to form HUDDLE GROUPS, and work with their wives (and children’s mothers) to help children selflessly and righteously achieve success.

He knew you had to maintain a certain swagger to be respected, to survive on its mean streets. But he is forced to push caution to the wind when Ty pulls his gun from his hoodie and threatens to use it on one of the other passengers. How will the wheelchair-bound Mason diffuse the situation when the only weapon available to him is the forcefulness of his spoken words?
