‘If Only I Had A Dad: Finding Freedom From Fatherlessness’ by Rick Amitin

rick

Abandoned by his father as a small child, Rick Amitin survived a heartbreaking relationship with his mom and three stepfathers before he was nine years old. At fifteen, he set out on his own, traveling the world, searching for his dad, and finding it impossible to live happily without one. One misguided decision and painful consequence after another, Rick made his way through the military and answered the calling to preach. He lifted people across the country and around the world while the wound of fatherlessness wreaked havoc on his relationships and pursuits, making him grapple with his lack of identity and sense of worth at every turn…that is, until his grand boy dropped out of heaven and into his arms and catalyzed his journey of healing.

In If Only I Had a Dad, Rick’s raw-polish approach to sharing his story and hard-earned wisdom will help other fatherless men and women to:

  • Identify the True Cause of All the Messy Dysfunction
  • Discover the Power on the Other Side of the Pain
  • Become the Parent They Never Knew They Could Be

If you have been searching for your father, wanting the pain to stop, this book is for you.

  1. Hi, Rick. Our journeys to find what we think is missing is painful for all of us. While our circumstances may be dissimilar, the end result is often the same.

    Thank you for writing ‘If Only I Had A Dad: Finding Freedom From Fatherlessness’ as well as submitting it to Two Drops of Ink to promote. Your book is inspiring and insightful and I hope that The Book Shelf Shout Out helps others find it. Some are still “wandering” as you call it. This may help them discover the wonder.

  2. Congratulations Rick! Your. Book will be on my list to read. Thank you for participating with all of us here at Two Drops of ink and my personal blog. I appreciate it! John.
