So, here's the question. How can we (as Autism Dads) be as successful AT HOME - with our families - as we are out in the REST of the world? How can we support our wives and families in a way that makes them feel happy and fulfilled... so that WE can feel happy and fulfilled, at home, too.
That is the question, this podcast will give you the answers.
In this episode, I'll be talking about how the title of this... is wrong. How serving our wives unconditionally... and in a spirit of love, will CHANGE US, for the better.

Even though it was one of the most brutal, painful and life changing events I've ever experienced... it was also... one of the greatest blessings ever. It didn't change what I DID.
