We discuss fatherhood with my brother-in-law and nephew, Grover and Cameron Alford. Cameron is a great example of the kind of man many parents hope their sons will grow up to be. He was an excellent student in high school and college, avoided a lot of the trouble that keeps parents up at night and is well-grounded in his faith. I talk with Grover to try to understand what he did as man to raise his son to be a Godly man. I also want to hear about some of the mistakes he made so that we can avoid them. Cameron also provide his thoughts on Grover as a father and what happened that allowed him to open up to his father and have great conversations about relationships and other things teenagers usually avoid sharing with their parents.
