Take 2

with Jerry & Debbie

The Impact of Absent Fathers


Countless people have grown up and spent much – or most – of their lives without their biological fathers. This can be the result of any number of circumstances. While the ideal situation is for children to have both a father and a mother involved in their lives from the very beginning, it’s often the case that they grow up without the helpful influence of one or the other of them. On Wednesday, Jerry and Debbie will welcome John Finch to the program. He is the producer of “The Father Effect,” a powerful documentary that has aired on EWTN Television. Here’s a portion of the show’s description:

In 2010, John Finch started a journey to find forgiveness for his father who committed suicide when he was only eleven years old. He had no idea how it would change his life forever as a man, husband, and father. This program shares John’s powerful story and the story of many men and women and their struggles of growing up with an absent father, how it influenced their life, and the life-changing power of forgiveness.

Join us for this impactful show at Noon ET on EWTN Radio.

  1. Unable to call and share experience growing up with an absent father ( emotional and physical). Have prayer request. Have been absent from my children’s lives for past 14 months. Flying on Friday to pick them up and have them for 8 months. Want the graces and strength only God can give.

    Looking forward to the next One Faith Experience.


  2. Isaac,

    Nice to hear from you. We will absolutely pray for your time with your kids. Don’t know their ages, but as was suggested on the show today, be vulnerable with them, show them your true heart, how much you love them, and trust that the Holy Spirit will be in your midst. Keep us posted on the blessings and miracles that happen!
