This week's Sentinel Watch podcast 

Rewarding fatherhood

July 24 to 30

- with David Bates & Kevin Hennenberger

Becoming a father for the first time can be daunting: grappling with brand-new situations, the responsibility … the cost! Our guests this week have felt some of that, but they also found that they could turn to God. And as they learned more about His fatherhood, their expression of it became easier and more rewarding.
