This is an opportunity to use social media for SOCIAL Good: Helping to restore males to Manhood.

Who: Terrence Wilson is the author of "In Search of A Father" published by Bridge-Logos. This Detroit author/speaker has more than 13 years of working with churches, organizations and youth groups across this nation in addition to appearing on numerous radio and TV shows. His broadcast, "Changing a Generation" confronts major unspoken issues of fatherlessness and "dead-beat dads" which has been attributed to high rates of crime, incarceration, high school drop-outs, poverty and substance abuse among African American men.

Stand up and take your rightful place in the Kingdom! You are made in HIS image! Know it, speak it, live it! This book will show you how. --Dr. Ty Adams, best-selling author of "Single, Saved and Having Sex"

The majority of our problems today stem from our past. Sometimes people get over their pasts, others mask, and some just "act out" in dysfunctional behavior. In Search of A Father is a book that plainly peels back layers of pain to help those who never had a father (especially young men) to bind up the wounds that may be holding them back from totally embracing life. – Dr. Paris Finner-Williams
