Hi! My name is Mark LaMaster, and my passion is to help dads develop deeper and more meaningful relationships with their kids and with God!
I am a dad, a husband, a speaker, an author, and a dad/health coach, who encourages dads to become the dads they always dreamed they would be. Throughout my fatherhood journey, I have witnessed dads from all walks of life who feel discouraged, depressed, and even defeated in their role as fathers.
Here is a sample of speaking events:
Men's Ministry Events
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Events
Faith-Based Youth Activities (i.e. Trail Life, Americna Heritage Girls, AWANA, etc.)
Church Events and Seminars
Through my speaking, coaching, and writing, I help lead dads through their personal fatherhood struggles, helping them to reveal what is holding them back from becoming the dad they were designed to be.
Over the past two years, I have identified three major areas dads struggle with as fathers:
1. Developing and Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle
2. Leading Their Families with a Servant's Heart
3. Leaving a Lasting Family Legacy
All of my programs are designed to jumpstart a dad's journey to becoming the father he has always wanted to be through a faith-based foundation.
Here is what people are saying:
"If you are seeking ways to grow as a father and develop a stronger connection with your son...Friday Night Lights for Fathers and Sons will jumpstart your desire and help you create a strong and unbreakable bond. Not only do YOU deserve this book, your SON does too! I bet it will ignite the fatherhood flame inside of you!" Jon Peters (father of two)--Missouri City, Texas
"Mark's program built anticipation for my sons right from the start! It allowed me to start because I didn't feel like I had to create anything...I find that when I start something with my boys, God is really faithful at leading it where it needs to go." Bill Winchester (father of three)--Portland, Oregon
"Mark is an engaging and dynamic speaker. His speaking connects with both youth and adults. I would highly recommend Mark for your next event!" James Bolin, Southeast Minnesota FCA Director (father of two)--Rochester, Minnesota
A bit more about me:
I have been married to my beautiful bride for nearly 20 years and we have been blessed with 2 awesome kids, Hannah and Lincoln. Throughout my life, I have always been led to help others--whether it be as an emergency department nurse, flight nurse, or as a Nursing Education Specialist. Then, on my son's 8th birthday, I realized I wasn't being the dad that I dreamed I would be to my kids. I researched everything I could about being a father, but found myself spending learning more time in finding out how to be a better dad than I was spending that precious time with my kids.
Since 2015, I have dedicated my time to being the best father I can be and helping other dads become the dads they always dreamed they would be! I have written two books, "Friday Night Lights for Fathers and Sons" and "Friday Night Lights for Fathers and Daughters" (May 2018), developed online video coaching programs for dads, and speak to dads, leaders who work with dads, and dads that are leaders!
