The Difference a Father Makes

When is the last time you read a book that one minute you are laughing out loud and the next you are fighting back tears? I wish I had this information when our children were young - but I have three sons, Mike, Tom, Marc - each have small children - I'm gift wrapping one for each of them, confident they will be using these tools very soon.

If you have never received a blessing from your father, this book is also for you. Ed gives insight on how you can connect to the Father and receive the blessing you never got a chance to recieve. In The Difference a Father Makes, Ed Tandy McGlasson challenges dads to excel in fatherhood and equips them to do so. "It is not that dads don't want to bless their kids, it is that many of them just dont understand how to do it." Discover the potential you have as a father to make a difference in the lives of your children! Learn how you can empower your children to pursue their dreams!


I cannot begin to express how much I enjoyed the presentation you made of the role of a Righteous Father, and hope that everybody, whether Christian or Jew, will take the time to read this book and see the role of the father and how important it is in the development of a child that is strong and faithful.

The book made me cry, made me exult in my own relationship with my dad while I was a child, and as a man as well.

An excellent job capturing the essence of the Bar Mitzvah(or Bat Mitzvah) experience!

May Hashem bless this work as a wonderful interfaith bridge as well.

My Rabbi Friend, S. Berkowitz

Ed has test proofed this material in our church over the last ten years. It works! I have seen our men come alive as they experienced the love of their father as other men spoke 'the blessing' over their lives. This has taught our men to move from the heart in speaking 'the blessing' over the hearts of their sons and daughters. I have four adult children, and without a doubt Ed has shown me and our church what a difference a father makes.

Finally, a book that provides a true tangible blessing for you and your children that will change your family relationships forever!

I laughed and cried through this book. Before knowing Ed was working on a book, I actually saw Ed giving out something to a crowd in a vision and the were all weeping. Now I know what they were weeping about. The need to know the Father and to get through the natural hindrances we have had built in to our upbringings is so critical, and this book gets to the root of it. To restore us to the father means raising up better fathers who will raise up our next generation, a fatherless one. The enemy gets one huge slap to the face with the writing of this book. Let the healing come! Let healthy fathers spring up all over the world! This book should be on the desk, nightstand or kitchen table of everyone who is concerned about the health and spiritual growth of their families.

The Father You've Always Wanted

There are countless men and women today suffering from the painful effects of growing up without a father in their lives.  I understand that pain!  But in The Father You’ve Always Wanted, Ed Tandy McGlasson helps readers understand the healing and hope found in God our Heavenly Father.

Jim Daly
President, Focus on the Family


No matter what kind of dad you have—or don't have—you can have the Father you've always wanted.

It is a tragic reality that many of us never experience the solid, positive presence of a loving father. But God promised that He would not leave us orphans, that everyone who believes becomes an adopted son or daughter of a loving Father in heaven.

With deep conviction and strong encouragement, Ed McGlasson invites you to take heart and have hope in your heavenly Father who loves you, blesses you, and will never leave you. Through this healing message, you will find a new sense of the purpose, identity, and value you have been searching for your whole life.


WOW! Unbelievably powerful is an understatement in how I would describe this treasure of a read. Within the first few chapters, through my tears, I said to myself...every person on the face of the planet needs to hear this message!

The Father You've Always Wanted is a powerhouse and a must read for anyone who has ever had a father or desired a relationship with a father. It's profound truth and penetrating impact has been deeply imbedded into the recesses of my heart, never to be forgotten. Outstanding Ed... simply outstanding! May God continue to shine His face and blessings upon you my friend.

Absolutely life changing!  Whether you feel you’ve failed as a father, or you’ve suffered from a harsh father who did not bless you; It’s never too late.  In the pages of this book, McGlasson maps a path to hope and healing.  I pray that this book gets into the hands of every person who has never heard the words “you are my beloved.”

Ron Strand

I wish I could pass this book out to every dad I know. Ed McGlasson is passionate about helping men become all they were meant to be. This book is a compelling read with very practical insight. Ed is one of my most favorite authorities on fathering and men issues.

Thanks Ed for writing this book. "Performance-based approval" is the story of my life and when you said "Performance-based approval is one of Satan’s greatest weapons" it hit home. Sadly I could look back and see that probably far too often I had unknowingly done the same things to my son as my dad did to me in how I reacted to various situations. The good news is this is a book of hope in that there is a Father that loves us -- unconditionally. And it is never too late. I would encourage anyone who has ever felt they had o "earn" the love of their parents by their performance to read this book!
