Hey homies!  My name is Jeff Marsh, founder of Secret Life of Dad.  I am 35, live in the great PNW, a husband to an incredible woman, and father to two beautiful little humans.

Being a dad and husband is so epic, yet so hard to do well.  But it's our calling as men!  But we as men / fathers / husbands face so many challenges. 

The story I share is from a life of:
  • depression
  • sexual and emotional abuse
  • abandonment
  • trauma
  • P.T.S.D.
  • anxiety disorders
  • untreated A.D.D.
  • colossal failures in career and family
  • and so much more... 

Mental health, especially depression and suicide, have a really foggy stigma today, but the shift is happening and voices are being heard.  I have chosen to share my story in an honest, unscripted and real way in hopes to encourage those that feel alone, in the dark, and without hope.

Our culture tells us we need to be tough, strong, and have it all together.  To the world, success means money, sex, promotion, invincibility.  But Jesus calls us to be the "least of these"; vulnerable, honest, committed and humble.  How can we do this in a culture so focused on self?

Secret Life of Dad is a platform to speak truth, to combat shame with vulnerability, to accept our story, grieve what we have lost, and to rest in the hope found only in the Love of Jesus.  This is only possible through community and conversation.  A band of brothers and sisters.

I am committed to growing this platform to spread the message of hope and healing.  But I can't do it without your support!  Would you please consider partnering with me in growing the conversation of Hope, mental health, husbandry and dad-foolery?

- Jeff
