As you go through today, make time to thank God because this was the gift that changed our lives forever – that’s why today is so special. It’s not just a holiday. Today we celebrate something that changed EVERYTHING for us.

THREE GIFTS YOUR CHILD NEEDS

___________________________________________

Have You Ever Felt Hopeless?

Help give hope to the hopeless in 2016

Have you ever felt hopeless? Have you ever been in a situation where you truly felt there was no way out? Nothing you could do could make it better and you felt like nothing would ever change.

We’ve all been in our situations where we felt that, but do you remember how amazing it felt when a miracle happened and you had hope again?

Hope isn’t something that’s nice, it’s necessary.

Help us bring hope (through our new radio outreach) to families that think they’ve messed up beyond repair – that they’ll never get their children back from a wrong path or repair a marriage that fell apart. Help us change that family not just for this year, but for generations to come.

Help! It’s the Holidays

 

It’s the holidays and many times that means family comes to town, or we go to family. Work often gets more hectic. Shopping, driving, everything can seem more stressful. Basically, it’s a perfect time to work on your love walk.

Here is one hitch that might prove to be a stumbling block in that process (and how to fix it)…

Marriage Builder: When Life Gets Busy…

Don’t let the holidays get you so busy with preparations that you overlook your relationship with your spouse.

Here’s what to do when life get’s busy:

THE TAKE AWAY

Make time for your spouse this holiday season. Help them out with something. Don’t overlook even the smallest kind gesture because it has a big impact.

 

HOPE IN A HOPELESS SITUATION

Have you ever felt hopeless? Have you ever been in a situation where you truly felt there was no way out? Nothing you could do could make it better and you felt like nothing would ever change.

We’ve all been in our situations where we felt that, but do you remember how amazing it felt when a miracle happened and you had hope again?

Hope isn’t something that’s nice, it’s necessary.

For families that think they’ve messed up beyond repair – that they’ll never get their children back from a wrong path or repair a marriage that fell apart – hope is life changing. 

God gave us His Son, Jesus to redeem us. We had no hope of ever fixing the situation ourselves, but through His gift we have our hope restored!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. — 1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)

We ask that you join with us in 2016 to restore hope in the lives of families through the knowledge of God’s Word.

 

OUR MISSION

It is our mission to reach families that have no hope in 2016. (Families that may not find themselves in a Faith for Families seminar.) We have been working to expand our reach and find people where they are. This mission is why we launched, Fighting for Families radio with Joe in September of this year. 

We are now on 12 radio stations across the country and have opportunities to expand. We are getting wonderful reports from people who just happened to turn on the radio at the right time or prisoners who found the station and wrote in.  How exciting to know God is orchestrating these divine appointments!

In order to build these radio broadcasts and keep them running while we build listener support, we rely on the prayers and financial support of partners like you, who will help sow into the lives of families they have never met because you know what it’s like to have hope through the gift of Jesus Christ!

We’ve been getting discounts on our broadcasts as we test certain markets, but beginning in January, we will need to pay the full cost of broadcast time, as well as salaries for workers who help produce the programs.

In January, we will need $11,500 to produce and air a month’s worth of radio.

We ask that you prayerfully consider a tax-deductible gift of any amount to help get this laugh-and-learn, hope restoring message out.

For your gift of $35 or more, we will send you the Biblical Parenting Essentials Set as a thank you for your partnership.

Why Are We So Different?

 

The first time you start to solve problems together you are going to realize something in a hurry — you and your spouse are different.

God made us different on purpose. Remember: When two people are just alike, one of them is not needed. Most people get married thinking they married someone just like them. They say, “We’re so alike!” But they don’t realize that opposites usually attract. Sure, you may have similar personalities or dispositions, but men and women think, see and feel differently. The easiest way to explain this is that we have a different way of processing things.

3 Ways to Make the Most of Christmas

Many times as we make the transition from childhood to adulthood, we can feel frustrated at the loss of that “magical” quality of Christmas. All of the joy and expectation, the excitement, and fun – it can get lost in the mix.

For some, it can become a time of year they dread because it turns into a long to-do list of obligations. For others, it can feel empty and lonely.

The key to making the most of Christmas is to look at what we’re giving and here’s why…
