From Pain to Purpose: Leaving A Legacy through Letters with Blake Brewer
Show Notes

Blake is married to a wonderful woman and enjoys being a father to his three children. But behind this, Blake had his personal tragedy experience when his father literally died in his arms. His father had left him a letter. This sorrowful experience and especially the letter unlocked a renewed sense of purpose in his life as he navigated pain and loss, and his purpose. As he recognized the importance of parents’ words to children, he also aimed to inspire other dads about the importance of the ‘‘Legacy Letter’’.
