Merriam Chapel hosts ‘Letters from Dad’ program

Endorsed by the likes of Ken Canfield, National Center for Fathering, Steve Farrar, best selling author. Dr. H. Norman Wright, renowned author of Marriage and Counseling books and videos, Dave Dravecky, former San Francisco Giants pitcher and many others. “Letters from Dad” has helped restore family communication, produced healed marriages and reconciled parent-child relationships, all through the “lost art of letter writing.”

Greg Vaughn, author of the bestselling book, “Letters from Dad,” recalls “I was in my garage cleaning up after the death of my father when I found his rusty tackle box. I realized that he died without leaving me a note or a signature, only this rusty tackle box. Then it dawned on me, what if I were to die today, what would I leave for my wife and children? I concluded that I would be leaving nothing but a rusty tackle box too! That’s how “Letters from Dad,” was born. From there I called 14 other fathers and we started on a journey to leave a legacy to our family. That group birthed a group of 130 men that turned into a group of 350 men and then a group of 700 men. It is now in over 700 churches and nearly 13,000 men have participated.”

“Letters from Dad” teaches men to open up their hearts and put into words their love for their wives, children and parents. It not only teaches men “Why” to write letters, the men also learn the mechanics of letter writing and how to keep them preserved for posterity.

Merriam Christian Chapel will be hosting a Kickoff Breakfast Event on Saturday, September 25 to introduce “Letters from Dad” to the community. It will be held in the Multipurpose Room at 3985 South US Highway 33, Albion. It will run from 7:30-10:30 a.m. and admission is free. Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend. Please RSVP by September 12 if possible by calling (260) 636-7266.
