The meaning of never eating alone with David Flood

The meaning of never eating alone with David Flood

His life took him from being an alcoholic to motivating hundreds of thousands of students across the United States. Our guest decided to publicly share his battle against alcohol addiction, and also how he guides his son with special needs through the difficulties of life. As a youth motivational speaker he has spoken in 38 states and Canada to 500,000 students, inspiring them to look at people and things in a different way. Why is it important to avoid blaming and shaming others, and how can we selfishly benefit from helping others? This is my conversation with David Flood.
