About the Book

StepDads, Showing Up & Showing Out is a humorous and interesting view of Dr. Rice’s growth, development, perspectives, and experiences as a STEPFATHER (STEPDAD). Rice’s first person perspective presents learning curves and experiences that hopefully provides support, wisdom, and encouragement to those MEN, (and the WOMEN who love and adore them), who have taken on the Difficult, Stressful, Mind-Blowing, Frustrating, Awesome, Honorable, Humbling, Rewarding, Enriching, and Blessed opportunity to be a STEPFATHER (STEPDAD). Rice describes how he had to grow in Spirituality, Patience, Self-Reflection, Understanding, Mental Health Awareness, Love Languages, Wisdom, and Financial Creativity. Rice’s goal is to Encourage, Equip, Strengthen, and Empower those MEN (and the WOMEN who love and adore them), to fully embrace the Challenges, Responsibilities, Honor, and Blessings associated with being a STEPFATHER (STEPDAD). The Ultimate Challenge, as a STEPFATHER (STEPDAD), is to Always Show Up! & Show Out! God is Watching!
