FLOWER MOUND, Texas, Dec. 7, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- A traffic accident. A gunshot wound. A health issue. Abandonment. There are many causes for fatherlessness in our society and the epidemic is growing. In 2014, almost 24 percent of all children lived in a home without a father; however, the statistic does not include homes where fathers are abusive, workaholics or absent emotionally. Fatherless children and adults need hope.
In an attempt to answer this need, Pearls of Promise Ministries is pleased to announce the release of its fifth book, "The Only Father I Ever Knew: How a Fatherless Child Finally Found True Love," by Lisa Burkhardt Worley. The book is designed to help the fatherless understand that God is their loving Father when their own father has not been an active part of their life.
Each chapter in The Only Father I Ever Knew represents attributes of God that are "father-like." Using a backdrop of author Lisa Burkhardt Worley's own fatherless life, as well as the lives of sixteen other fatherless men and women she interviewed, it is her goal to show that only God can fill the void left in our hearts by an absentee earthly father.
Worley's father, a Jewish physician, suffered a deadly heart attack at age thirty-nine while playing polo. She was born two months later. For most of her childhood, Lisa lived with a mentally ill mother who never recovered from the premature death of her spouse while Lisa attempted to fill the void left by her deceased father. She searched for love in all the wrong places and made a numerous mistakes until she discovered the unfailing love of her heavenly Father. "This book has been on my heart for many years," said Burkhardt-Worley. "However, it took many years of a relationship with my heavenly Father before I could adequately describe his attributes."
