Finding my father: How the Gospel heals the pain of fatherlessness

155 pages


Blair Linne says her father’s “absence was the cloud that was always hovering in my sky”. In Finding my father she takes us through the pain of her childhood as she discovers her fathers and secrets of her family. In the first chapter, the author seemed to have a “chip on her shoulder” concerning growing up, raised by a single mom. But the ensuing chapters are filled with her love for her Heavenly Father, His direction in her life and the parental legacy she and her husband hope to leave with their children (Shai wrote chapter 7, Be owing the Dad I never knew).


4 out of 5

Suggested audience:

Christians seeking healing after fatherlessness

Christian impact:

Not only does Blair Linne share her experiences in seeking her father and the affect that not having a father in her life had as she was growing up, but she also shares her faith very eloquently.
