When Becky King’s husband was deployed in Afghanistan in 2012, Becky went to work, volunteering with a Family Readiness Group, which helps families stay connected during deployment. However, no mother can be fully prepared for what would happen with her own son, Benson, a once happy and energetic 7-year-old boy, who would have days of heartbreak as his father served abroad. Becky searched for resources that would help Benson but came up short finding material that resonated with him. Then it dawned on Becky that they were simply lending Benson’s father to the world and that notion helped Benson tremendously. Thus, the book I’ll Lend You My Daddy was born.
