Shon and Cole – Fathers Heart Podcast
For years, fathers have been deemed as the bread winner, provider, and protector. However, he has also been described by society as a womanizer, dismissive, angry, unemotional, and absent parent. With the Fathers Heart Podcast Shon and Cole will reveal the true unadulterated heart of fathers. They understand when a father is understood, and given a space to show up authentically, he will nurture, guide, and lead not only his family but will also grow and develop the missing parts of himself. Therefore, a Father’s Heart Podcast is about tackling the tough issues that impact a man’s unfolding journey to fatherhood. Check out their podcast here.
