When a young boy is deserted by his earthly dad, the impact of this loss sends ripples through his whole life. And yet, God is always there. Boyd Bailey tells the story of growing up with a single mom, longing for the affirmation and physical presence of his daddy. He didn’t understand why he couldn’t have a dad like everyone else, but throughout his childhood, seeds of truth and hope were planted bringing about salvation. Knowing God as his Heavenly Father changed the outcome of his life. He discovered that healing was possible and that he could use his pain to make a difference in the lives of others. Boyd Bailey is what we call a trophy of God’s grace.
In this episode, Boyd talks about
- The importance of taking your children to church
- Rebuilding a broken earthly relationship
- Using humility to bring about healing
- Hope for fatherless fathers and encouragement for single moms
