From the Back Cover
No matter what kind of dad you have--or don't have--you can have the Father you've always wanted.
It is a tragic reality that many of us never experience the solid, positive presence of a loving father. But God promised that He would not leave us orphans, that everyone who believes becomes an adopted son or daughter of a loving Father in heaven.
With deep conviction and strong encouragement, Ed McGlasson invites you to take heart and have hope in your heavenly Father who loves you, blesses you, and will never leave you. Through this healing message, you will find a new sense of the purpose, identity, and value you have been searching for your whole life.
"There are countless men and women today suffering from the painful effects of growing up without a father in their lives. I understand that pain! But in The Father You've Always Wanted, Ed helps readers understand the healing and hope found in God, our heavenly Father."--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family
"The strongest form of motivation is encouragement. The Father You've Always Wanted will motivate you to bless, encourage, and rally the people in your life. It is a healing book, full of remedies--a must read."--Bill McCartney, founder and chairman emeritus, Promise Keepers
"I wish I could pass this book out to every dad I know. Ed McGlasson is passionate about helping men become all they were meant to be. This book is a compelling read with very practical insight."--Jim Burns, PhD, president, HomeWord; author, Creating an Intimate Marriage and Confident Parenting
"Unbelievably powerful is an understatement. Its profound truth and penetrating impact has been deeply imbedded into the recesses of my heart, never to be forgotten. Outstanding."--Debbie Rasa, owner/partner, Rasa Floors, LLC

The book addresses names you have been given in your past. You may have received it from parents, teachers, coaches, or any other influential person in your childhood. More often than not, those names were negative. We often take the names "dumb", "stupid", "waste of space/time", or similar names for ourselves and repeat those names to ourselves when we fail to achieve a goal or make a mistake, whether major or minor. We tend to repeat the same things we heard growing up in our heads when chastising ourselves.
This becomes an issue when this influences how we think God views us.
God sees us as His beloved. We cannot escape, lose, or diminish His love for us no matter what we do or don't do.
This book explores these topics deeply from many perspectives, citing stories from people from all walks of life with very diverse backgrounds and experiences and how they, too, were able to reject the names they were given and accept God's view of them.
I highly recommend this book for everyone. It doesn't matter if your relationship with your father was healthy or not. We all need to learn more about God's love and absolute acceptance of us in order to treat everyone in our lives in a manner acceptable to Him.
very simple and to the heart :)
