As a child, author Olivia S. Benson was puzzled by her relationship with her father and his absence in her life. It took many years and much soul searching for her to understand her life experiences and how profoundly his absence affected her. Benson finally solved the puzzle when she began to understand the nature of the universe: what GEFS―God, Energy, Force, Spirit―really was and how her suffering could serve for good in her life. In For the Love of My Father, she journeys through some of the gut-wrenching childhood experiences that created a perfect storm of circumstances, leaving gaping holes in her Soul. Benson shares the keys to her healing, discussing how important it is for women to heal themselves so they can take their rightful place in the world. Benson offers hope, allowing women to see, that despite how difficult it can be to grow up without a father, they can be made whole. For the Love of My Father addresses men as well, assisting them in supporting women while on the healing journey to overcome the absence of a father. It also helps men who are absent fathers by providing insight, perspective on their role, and the impact their absence has in their daughter’s life.
