Evangelist Dr. Wendy Lyle-Jones issues a call for fathers to come back to the sons that are missing them and take their rightful place as the priest of their families.

Lyle-Jones—an educator in schools and correctional settings—also shares what goes wrong when children don’t have fathers, exploring the hurt and pain of men who grew up without them. Whether you’re a father, son or another member of the family, you’ll understand why fathers are the missing link in helping boys become men who love, trust, and honor God in The Father Factor.< Less
