Ep. 130 : Say All the Things: A letter to his daughter with John Sowers

At the end of our parenting journey, there are so many things we hope to have said, done, and passed on to our kids. Are you a parent or grandparent who needs a little extra inspiration and courage to share your heart with your kids? This is the show for you! The Mattsons had a powerful conversation with Dr. John Sowers about his crazy love for his daughters, intentional parenting, and his latest book, Say All the Unspoken Things: A Book of Letters (Thomas Nelson, February 1, 2022). Dr. John Sowers is the author of several books and launched The Mentoring Project, to mentor at-risk youth, with author Donald Miller. He has taught college, directed a homeless shelter and was the multi-language Director for Billy Graham in Los Angeles and New York. Dr. Sowers served on a White House Task Force and also received the Champion of Change award from President Obama for his work, but his favorite accomplishment is being a dad to his three daughters. We think you will love this interview! Read More
