I've met a very wonderful author, Rick Amitin, who has come to share is book If I Only Had A Dad.
Rick is a product of broken home(s). He was abandoned by his father and had three step-fathers by the time he was nine years of age. His relationship with his mother was strained for years until total healing and restoration took place late in life. On his own since he was 15, Rick struggled with identity, affirmation, and a sense of unworthiness. His own religious practices left him ashamed, frustrated, and troubled before discovering the Heavenly Father he never knew.
Rick is raw-polish. Compassionate for the plight of the fatherless while insisting on healing your life and moving forward. Telling his own story with the warts left in leaves no questions about his commitment to moving people forward. You will laugh, cry, and gasp as you walk with Rick to a life of deep satisfaction and fulfillment. Without apology, he presents an anecdote for the pandemic of fatherlessness. Rick offers a way out of a trouble past with the proof of how he did it. Rick is passionate about assisting others in their search to make sense of their lives. He has developed a unique skillset to overcoming dysfunction, failure, and achievements leading to transformational living. Rick is creating online courses to accompany his retreats, seminars, and speaking engagements. His optimistic humor will encourage and reassure you.
What is the current book you are promoting? “If Only I Had A Dad”
What inspired this book? Knowing my grandson would deal with the same plight of the fatherless that I dealt with, I wanted to minimize his potential pain.
That is so sweet. It does seem to be an epidemic sweeping our country. I'm sure many of my readers can relate. I know I certainly can. What is your next project? “ALTARED” My journey through religion to spirituality!
How do you write your books? I think any desire to help other people comes from an intimate desire to help ourselves. I write conscious of this belief.
That is a great message. What is one great lesson you have learned as a writer? Whatever you receive in life is never just for you.
Rick has some great stuff going on. If you want to keep up with his projects, follow him on Facebook or Twitter. I met him when another author shared his blog post about his recent heart attack. It was clever, insightful, and beautifully poetic. I just knew I had to introduce you to him! You can find his blog on his website RickAmitin.com
