E18: When Father's Day Feels Heavy (With Cait Winters)
About the episode
The feelings surrounding Father’s Day are varied. For many it may stimulate gratitude and honor, yet for many others this day is perhaps more complicated filled with feelings of anxiousness and fear. Regardless of the successes and failures of our earthly fathers, this episode directs us to the source of everlasting and perfect love – God the Father. I am joined by Cait Winters from Massachusetts who through her own experiences with divorced parents, teenage pregnancy and single parenting, shares how she discovered her Heavenly Father who desires to bring good out of every situation, including the broken and painful ones.
