MARRIAGE & FAMILY
All society rests upon the foundation of the family, and without strong, committed marriages the family falls. The fact is that everyone encounters struggles in relationships in general, so we have provided references to several ministries that have years of experience in counselling individuals and families to overcome the most common relational difficulties of life from a Christian perspective.
Focus on the Family is a global Christian ministry dedicated to helping families thrive. We provide help and resources for couples to build healthy marriages that reflect God’s design, and for parents to raise their children according to morals and values grounded in biblical principles. We’re here to come alongside families with relevance and grace at each stage of their journey. We support families as they seek to teach their children about God and His beautiful design for the family, protect themselves from the harmful influences of culture and equip themselves to make a greater difference in the lives of those around them. No matter who you are, what you’re going through or what challenges your family may be facing, we’re here to help. With practical resources – like our 1-800 Family Help line, counseling and websites – we’re committed to providing trust-worthy, biblical guidance and support.
