Despite making football games, a fatherless father says he wasn’t present for his son

Feb 28, 2018



Cole Williams is the founder of The Son to a Father Project and The Son to a Father Parenting Skills Training Program — a series of workshops that explore the journey of fatherhood. He is also a motivational speaker, parent, mentor and community leader in Grand Rapids.

As part of Failure Lab, a showcase of personal stories on failure, Williams tells a story about his own father and about being a dad himself.

Watch him tell his story below, or listen to it above.



Failure Lab stories are all about an essential part of the human experience: the fact that everyone bumps into failure sometimes.
