A Review of "Faith of a Child" by Stefan Lanfer

A Review of "Faith of a Child" by Stefan Lanfer

<p>My dear friend, Stefan Lanfer, just recently published a book about being a new father:</p>

<p>As an expectant father, the book couldn't have come at a better time for me. I've read a number of books to prepare for parenting and fatherhood, but Stefan offers something much more unique in sharing the the internal thoughts, worries and joys in a autobiographical narrative that is "not quite poetry", but certainly seems as much. Its one thing to read the ten point plan for fatherhood, but "The Faith of a Child" gives you a ringside seat into the first couple of years of fatherhood.</p>

<p>Stefan writes with such a raw honesty about the insecurities, the self-doubt, and the sometimes overwhelming feelings of love and awe that come with being a father. His acaknowledgement of such feelings provides affirmation to fathers that its okay to not always have the answers, to feel second fiddle to your wife as a parent, or to just be exhausted at times with the experience.</p>

<p>After reading the book, I said to myself, "If I'm half as good a father as Stefan is, I'll be doing okay." And I won't begrudge my friend a bit for his patience, love and calm reassurance that makes him an amazing father.</p>

<p>We've bought a few of copies for the other new and expectant fathers in our lives and commend this book to parents everywhere. You can buy yours here:<br />
