Meet Daniel 

Daniel is 34-year-old dad who served in the Marine Corps who knew he wanted more for his life.  He transitioned out of the uniform, got a job, started a family, but still felt something was missing.  He would stay up at night wondering how he was going to provide for his family.  How he was going to be the dad he knew he wanted to be.  How to show up as the husband and create the certainty his wife needed.

Daniel looks at his kids and wonders what life he is creating for them to grow up in.

He is seeking that connection to his wife and kids.  He keeps a lot of things bottled up because that is what he was told was the "right" thing.  He has conversations in his head that always end with him feeling broken, worthless, and wondering if this is what life is really about. 

He is looking for that one thing that will change his life in a radical way, he has big dreams, big ambitions, and a heart the size of the ocean. 

 He hears a podcast that says "Dads coming home" and he realizes he has been on autopilot with so much of his life.  He says "Today will be the day", he takes the first step which begins a journey of discovery,  growth, and vulnerability with others in a way he has never known.
