Show Notes

Tune in to our inspiring podcast episode featuring Ken Guidroz, a former pastor and retirement plan expert with over two decades of experience. Discover how his life took a dramatic turn as a parent, facing unimaginable heartbreak when all his children battled substance abuse simultaneously. In the face of tragedy, when one son's actions led to incarceration, Ken found a unique channel for healing—writing heartfelt letters to his son.   These letters between father and son not only transformed their relationship, but also became the cornerstone of his moving book, “Letters to My Son in Prison: How a Father and Son Found Forgiveness for an Unforgivable Crime.”

Join us as Ken shares his profound journey towards reconnection, forgiveness, and rediscovery of faith beyond the boundaries of religion. Learn how he and his wife navigated the storm, preserving their marriage amidst the trials.
