Chris Beach, the Executive Director for the Relationship Foundation of Virginia told ConnectVA, "As a father to four boys, I can speak to new dads from years of experience as a father while learning from other great dads. Being married to my best friend and wife for nearly 15 years, I can help couples slow down and take time for each other, not to mention it forces me and my wife to do the same. I get to do things at work which help me in my real life. It doesn’t get more rewarding than that!" What an inspiration! Read more about his work here: bit.ly/2tSIPDT ... See MoreSee Less
