Books That Make You Become the Best Dad You Can Be

Parenting can be tough, full of challenges and unknowns, and the struggles of young moms are well known. It’s important, too, to offer guidance and support to young dads.

J Hall—author, educator, podcaster, and all-around family guy—has just released his first book, God Help Me! I’m a Young Dad: 10 Essentials for Becoming the Dad Your Kids Need. Part inspiration, part education, part application, the book highlights ten important characteristics every dad needs, and provides practical tips for developing them in their lives as well as in the lives of their children.

Additionally, the book features a 30-day devotional guide that encourages readers to practice the essentials discussed in the book.

For two years now, J Hall has hosted and produced the Okie Bookcast, a podcast dedicated to connecting readers with their next great read, by featuring interviews with authors and storytellers connected to Oklahoma. In addition, he teaches sociology, and is Dean of Social Sciences at Oklahoma City Community College.
