Pastor Ed McGlasson is the founder and executive director of The Blessing of The Father Ministries. He is a pastor, best-selling author, renowned conference and corporate event speaker, and a five-year veteran in the National Football League. As a former lineman in the NFL, Ed played with the Giants, the Jets, and the Rams.
Ed’s call to ministry began in college, after being healed from a career-ending knee injury that led to his conversion and faith in Christ. Ed details his life in his best-selling book The Difference A Father Makes, including the loss of his heroic military dad in a tragic U.S. Navy plane crash in 1956. This book has changed thousands of readers' lives with over 450,000 copies sold since its release in 2004. The Difference a Father Makes has also been translated into Spanish. Ed has since authored two other highly acclaimed books: Be Loved (2009) and The Father You’ve Always Wanted (2013).
The Blessing of the Father Ministries strike the core of an epidemic: A fatherless society. Ed believes it can be addressed and healed through the hope found in the blessing of God our Father.
Ed resides in Southern California with his wife, Jill. Together, they have five adult children with four more through marriage and 11 amazing grandchildren.
Ed Tandy McGlasson gives a great message on being a father in his book The Difference A Father Makes, which God placed in my hands a few years back. It challenged me to be the father that Jesus has called me to be.
Thank you so much for your devotionals everyday. I love diving into them! Starting my mornings with the daily bread really empowers me through the rest of the day.
Your coaching and ministry to my son and me has healed a 30-year wound. My dad never taught me how to be a father, and never blessed me in my life. My son and I, for the first time, have forgiven each other. It has been one of the most powerful things I have experienced in my life.
I thank you for the insight and the meeting tonight. I really feel some hope. I believe God put you in my life to give me the hope that I need and coach me to be able to work on my marriage and with my daughter.
Because of Jesus becoming the center of my life, I've had the best month in my entire life! I fully expect it to get better and better, sweeter and sweeter as I learn to lean into the Father's invitation to live under His smile. Thank you for your efforts in the fathering arena on behalf of all His beloved adopted sons and daughters.
Thank you, my brother, for your daily devotional emails. Bless you as you continue to serve the Lord.
God used you not only to set me free from the hurt I had carried from my broken father, but I was able to forgive him and share the love of Jesus with my dad. My life will never be the same.
Thank you for the time spent together on Zoom. It pointed me towards hope and recovery. I look forward to benefit from the program, and I look forward to being an excellent dad to my family!
