The Father’s Heart

Dec 9, 2022

Bring your Kleenex to listen to this podcast. This is an interview with Sam Sanchez who transparently discusses his relationship with his father. Sam is a father of four children himself and one of three in his family of origin. Sam’s father was functionally illiterate, barely having a 7th grade education. Yet, when you listen to Sam’s stories about his father you will be touched by the emotional connection Sam had with his Dad.

I will not go into any detail with you in this description as I do not think I can write his story with the same power of his spoken words. This is a story that needs to be heard. The video is also available on Come listen to Sam himself express his feelings in his relationship with his father who shaped his character by just being there. His father told him “Never give up no matter what the circumstances”. Sam’s Dad spoke those words having lived through tragic personal health conditions that appeared insurmountable. Yet, through it all he lived an exemplary life, never giving up. When most people would have thrown in the towel Sam’s father pressed on giving an example to his children. Sam’s father was his hero.

Come listen to our podcast of hope and reflection on what it means to young people to have a father who just shows up. Many people today do not have a natural father who is willing to be a father in their lives. Children are growing up without true fathers in their lives. Social structures are missing fathers in every one of the seven mountains of influence in our society. Where have all the fathers gone? Whether you can be a natural father or surrogate father to a child consider the impact you can have on another person’s life if you can stand in the gap in a role as teacher or coach. If you are a natural father, consider just showing up to be there with your kids. If you do, you just may become their hero! Ultimately, you may be able to lead someone to discover who their true Father is: The Father of Lights: Yahweh Elohim!


Come and listen, enjoy, and connect with God Your Father’s Perspective!
