The Discussion and Study Guide includes a class format and instructions for the class leader. The goal is to make the class instructional, informative and encouraging! Many class leaders and “book evangelists” for Journey to the Fatherless appreciate the fact that the book is scripturally based with relevant Bible references included with each chapter.

Journey to the Fatherless has fifteen chapters to teach, strengthen and motivate the reader to either start or pursue the journey of a lifetime. Chapters can be taken out of sequence, or used at different times depending upon the duration of the class.
