Men’s stories: Healing from father wounds

40-year-old teacher and Xtreme Character Challenge volunteer leader, Evan Ross Engelbrecht, has extensive, personal knowledge about the deep wounds inflicted on sons by absent fathers and dysfunctional fathers. He had both. In a recent podcast chat with Ethan Black of KingfisherFM he shares frankly on his ongoing journey of restoration with God in which He is slowly but surely teaching him how to be a real father to his two sons — and how to help others to overcome father wounds.

Some of the keys to healing that Evan shares include choosing to forgive even when you don’t feel like it; the importance of having rock-solid men about him who constantly speak into his life; not disqualifying mentors because they make human mistakes; and taking responsibility fo his own poor choices.

One of the ways that Evan uses his painful past experiences to offer hope and help to many boys and men suffering from father wounds is through his blog The Blessed Father. in which he writes about his own past traumas and his healing journey with God.
