Witness the online event on September 26th at 8pm EDT.
I was very encouraged to hear President Trump today announce his choice for the Supreme Court, Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. From all reports, Judge Barrett is a constitutionalist judge in the mold of her former boss, Justice Antonin Scalia, for whom she clerked after graduating summa cum laude from Notre Dame Law School.
Prior to joining the 7th Circuit in 2017, Judge Barrett taught constitutional law at Notre Dame and other schools for many years, and her reputation as an originalist and textualist grew through her writings and speeches.
As a father of two young men, the topic of how young people and faith coalesce is close to my heart because Jean and I are living it right now. We have diligently tried to raise our sons to be men after God’s heart. Some days we feel like we’ve hit a home run. Other days, we fear we’re striking out.
Maybe you feel the same way. Christian parents are competing with a lot in the culture when it comes to believing in God and living for him.
I’d like to begin by reminding you about our pro-life event this weekend, September 26. See Life 2020 will be streamed at 6:00 p.m. MT on Focus’ Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram channels, as well as at focusonthefamily.com/see-life/. This program will feature powerful pro-life stories, compelling commentary from dynamic Christian leaders, soul-stirring music from award-winning artists, and will culminate with a 4D ultrasound of a baby – offering a window into the reality of life in the womb. Join us!
Once upon a time, back when tens of thousands of people were permitted to gather together side-by-side, the sound of a baby’s heartbeat and the sight of his tiny pre-born form silenced a crowd gathered in New York City’s Times Square on a sunny Saturday afternoon in May.
It’s been called the “Times Square Miracle” – the culmination of “Alive from New York,” Focus on the Family’s pro-life event in May of last year that featured a live 4D ultrasound broadcast on four jumbotrons in mid-town Manhattan.
Money is one of the biggest sources of conflict in marriage.
There are two important reasons husbands and wives struggle in this area. The first is that a lot of couples assume that the solution to their financial problems is more money. It’s not. Extra income may ease a few immediate financial pressures, but it’s usually not a long-term solution.
Generally, the more money a couple earns, the more likely they are to elevate their standard of living and, therefore, their spending.
Does this formula remind you of your parenting style?
You probably recognize that from a math class somewhere in your past. It guarantees that every time you add A and B together, you get C. So, 3 + 2 always equals 5. Every time. It’s simple. It’s reliable.
Which is why formulas are the go-to parenting method for so many moms and dads. And many don’t even realize they’re doing it.
Here’s the test.
Dara’s son Timothy was turning three, and to celebrate, friends, grandparents and other family members gathered for his birthday party. All had a great time filled with cake, presents and pictures. Proof was captured in Dara’s numerous social media posts. It was the perfect day that every parent looks forward to.
Unfortunately, Dara had no idea that it would be her last normal day in a long while.
It was the day before she discovered her husband’s pornography use.
Odds are, you or someone you know has stepchildren. According to a recent statistic, 40 percent of families in the United States are blended.
That is a lot of people who are trying to build something new out of the ashes of their former lives. Divorce. Death. Blended families come together for many reasons, but they each face a number of challenges.
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Cultivating Love in Blended Families,” authors Dr.
If I could, I’d love to bring you behind-the-scenes of Focus on the Family’s SEE LIFE 2020 production.
