Preparing for fatherhood? Freaked out? Help is here. When a woman prepares for motherhood, other women guide her on her way. Not so a dad-to-be, who gets pats on the back, corny jokes, or vague... More > assurances he’ll do fine. Until now, his best hope was by-moms-for-moms baby books--a gap filled by Stefan Lanfer’s The Faith of a Child. According to Lanfer, when his wife was pregnant, "I was STRESSED out, and the guys around me no help—until, just in time, I hosted a group of dads at our home. I fed them dinner. They fed me their stories.” As he listened, says Lanfer, “I got inside the dad head space. Finally, I felt ready.” To pay forward this gift, Lanfer shares his stories in The Faith of a Child, which tracks Lanfer’s journey to and into fatherhood. To dads-to-be, Lanfer says, "If you want tips, tactics, and advice for childbirth and parenting, you’ve got dozens of choices. But, if you want real stories that actually let you picture fatherhood, The Faith of a Child is for you."< Less
