    Overcoming Clubfoot and more with Christian Penn

    Overcoming Clubfoot and more with Christian Penn

    How does a father deal with Clubfoot or any other birth defect his child might have? It starts with faith and research! This week we had our friend Christian Penn of nonprofit Projectivity come through to talk to us about overcoming Clubfoot with his son Max. 

    Chris kept it super real and walked us through how he did it so when we are faced with the unknown, we can also handle our business. Real talk is the best talk and Chris dropped gems.

Fatherhood is Lit is Legit

As a fellow parent podcaster (Nurse Papa the podcast) I have to say that Fatherhood Is Lit is more than legit. James provides insight, perspective, and actionable advice to fathers of all backgrounds. I’d love to join him for a future episode!

Listen and Take Notes

Stories, suggestions, and advice in the rawest form. James approaches fatherhood in the most genuine way we should. New dads, and veteran dads could benefit from listening in- I sure am.
