Brandon: A Dad in Action!

I wanted to use this opportunity to introduce you to one of our dads, Brandon Williams. This is the same Brandon that is in the video pop up from our home page!

I remember meeting Brandon at a Hope House event and knowing immediately there was something unique about this dad. He was near his newborn son and I could see the joy and pride within him. What’s funny is he has recently told me that his first thoughts were, “Who is this old, white dude, and why does he want to meet with me? I’m a dad, nobody works with me/us.” This is a little bit of insight into the barriers I have to cross to get into the “world” of these young men. We have come a long way since this warm Colorado night.

I have had the privilege of experiencing first-hand the importance of building a friendship upon a foundation of love, hope, and honesty. I am so proud of Brandon and how he has stepped up and desires to be the husband his wife needs, and the father his children need! Please take a moment to listen to the song he wrote based upon his experiences with Glass Hearts. My favorite line (even though I love the whole thing!) is, “Just tryna give my boys someone to look up to while they dad out there tryna shed light and give my daughters a role model so they ain’t gotta front when it come to man they can look at they daddy and make comparisons and hold my wife down and let her know she the only one I need that’s why I drop on one knee.”  Brandon is one of the coolest people I know. You can learn more about him at his website! You can read the full lyrics below.

Everything I am Here For
Made for everything that I am here for
Man I am father of 5 now a husband and a son first servant/ Made for everything I am doing I am just serving/ whatever it be these bars in trusted me there’s hearts just tryna do the right thing/ direct like Spike Lee/ seem like a lot B/ people be telling me like I am lock up no bail and a couple felonies/ you kidding right I am telling ya I am freer then I’ll ever be/ only bars you see me behind are on these track I eat/ not taken it all for granted some parents losing they kids/ some fathers dissing they kids I am just happy I can share life/ and give everything deserved I was made for this here this something I don’t deserve
Hook x8
Made for everything that I am here for
Just tryna give my boys someone to look up to while they dad out there tryna shed light and give my daughters a role model
So they ain’t gotta front when it come to man they can look at they daddy and make comparisons and hold my wife down and let her now she the only one I need that’s why i drop on one knee.  And to hip hop that I ain’t stopping to the beat drop and guarantee good music till the heat stop.
See you was made for something you just got to do it. Don’t listen to the opinions of others. And Don’t let a hater stop you for nothing. Matter fact anything that is distracting you from your purpose probably is in the way. I am just saying follow your dreams. Let’s go.
