The loss of an earthly dad deeply impacts the life of a child, although it’s not always realized in childhood. Children can often grow into grief and not deal with dad loss until their adult years. 

Many times a positive mentoring relationship is the tool that God will use to remove an infected emotional splinter and bring about healing.

Zach Garza, the founder of Forerunner Mentoring and Vice President of Expansion for the Mentoring Alliance, equips and encourages mentors to build relationships with kids who have experienced adverse circumstances.

In this episode Zach talks about:

  • The pain of his loss at the start of his teenage years
  • The power of mentoring over the course of his life
  • Positive influences that provided healthy safeguards
