Author Kenneth Joyner is Today’s Honoree

About the Book:

While it’s hard to fathom, an estimated 27.4 million children are growing up without their biological father. This leads to an increased risk of suicide, substance abuse, and potential criminal activity. As shocking as this may be, there are some things that young men and their families can do to stop this vicious cycle and live a successful and fulfilling life.

Without a Father is able to show young men, single mothers, and community leaders and mentors how to help young men navigate their way through a world that sometimes seems to be working against them. More so, author Kenny Joyner shows all men that they have value and that their presence in a child’s life matters more than they may understand.

Whether you’re a fatherless son looking for inspiration from a man who walked in your shoes, a single mother trying to get a peek inside your son’s head and heart, or an absentee father working to cultivate a relationship with their child, Without a Father can give you the necessary tools and guidance you need. In the book, you’ll discover how to take real-life experiences and use them to overcome obstacles and better your life while also learning key principles to help you become the success you’re destined to be. Finally, Joyner teaches you how faith works with you and in you to combat fears, insecurities, and shortcomings that may be holding you back.

About the Author:

Kenneth Joyner is a husband and father who is passionate about helping others reach their full potential. He is also the co-founder of the non-profit organization Boys With A Purpose, which mentors young boys through an after-school program.

This former educator who failed his Praxis test 6 times before becoming a teacher, ironically, is now a leadership development strategist who travels the country training teachers on how to develop better relationships with their students. He attributes his perseverance to his mother, who raised four children on her own. While she is proud of him for “surpassing any and all expectations” she had for him, Kenny knows it was her strength that gave him the courage to pursue his dreams and, inevitably, write his first book.

Having grown up without his father and enduring the hardships that came with that journey, he wrote Without A Father as a guide to help others use their experiences; to move them from a life of fear to one of faith. He is taking his experiences and bridging the gap for other young men who have gone through similar struggles. His hope is to build strong young men for the future and place them on the path of success.
