Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Mattanah DeWitt, VP of Communications at Passages will give us a report on a recent trip that Christians from her organization took to Israel. This delegation of 25 believers were on a solidarity trip to Israel to show the Jewish people that they are not alone during this time of war and tragedy. They visited communities in Gaza that were brutally attacked on October 7, heard stories of survivors, and personally distributed over $600,000 from a fundraiser for two border villages decimated by the attacks.
Man Enough to Forgive needed to be written to specifically address the #1 societal issue of our time – Fatherlessness. Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, author and ministry leader, John Smithbaker shares how he was compelled to write this book from the insights gained in pursuit of healing his own heart-wrenching soul wound and informed by the lessons learned coming alongside boys and men across the country who share this crippling burden.
As a writer, coach, and marketing leader, Mattanah DeWitt loves to spread powerful and transformational ideas through stories, crafted with compelling honesty and creativity. She feels that stories are the connective tissue of every part of our lives and work. In her work, she asks big questions & writes about communication, leadership, and personal growth. She loves sharing what she's learned and helping people achieve more for themselves and for their teams and organizations.
Even before he was born, the conditions for John Smithbaker’s ministry training began. While still in his mother’s womb, John’s biological father abandoned their family and left them to fend for themselves. Many years later--- after his miraculous Christian faith conversion, John was called by the Lord to abandon his worldly pursuits and the comforts and fruits of being a successful CEO in business to become a full-time missionary. God commissioned John to become a national advocate for precious fatherless boys who have no voice and gave him a unique vision to develop and launch the life-impacting ministry of Fathers in the Field. The ministry’s mission is to go boldly into the fields of the fatherless to bring God’s redemptive love to boys and men across America.
