A father does not have to be gone to be absent.
Statistics support nearly all societal issues facing us today can be traced back to a child growing up in a father-absent home. But what if a father is at home, and still absent? It's what we call the silent statistic; present but not engaged. This form of absence has significant impact too, and whether it's a moment in conversation, or a season in life - it is every dad's fight. We provide ALL fathers (and father figures) with tools and opportunities to make a change.
TOGETHER, HELPING FATHERS CHOOSE PRESENCE
We facilitated over 20,000 hrs of intentional presence between a father and child since 2022.
"I feel closer to my dad than I ever have before. I now want to lean in and learn instead of forming the walls that once grew us apart"

Before joining our intensive programs like Expeditions, it also serves as a more accessible entry point for you.
Video curriculum and shoulder-to-shoulder tools that will enable you to fight absence with intentional presence right where you are now.
A story-based video curriculum designed to bring the "campfire conversation" to your living room. Raw. Unscripted. Broken. Messy.
Enabling you to fight absence in fatherhood with intentional presence right where you are now.
"Mountain top" moments are important; affording space to step outside our daily routine, think more clearly, and see our lives from a different vantage point. Family Lines specializes in facilitating these moments for dads. Yet while mountain tops are essential for gaining perspective, life is lived and worked out in the valley - and it can be hard. This virtual group of fellow fathers provides encouragement and counsel for life in the valley.
