Five Things Every Dad Should Know

When I was an eight-year-old boy, I looked to Hank, the father figure in my life, for all the things the other kids my age seemed to enjoy with their dads. Sadly, Hank wasn’t willing to be engaged in my life. He adored my mom, but my siblings and I were simply excess baggage.

- What Kind of Person Are You? -

At the very core of Christianity is an understanding of our own inadequacy. I do not possess any strength or power - or even purpose - outside of Jesus Christ. I am entirely dependent upon Him to lift me up when I fall down, which I do on a daily basis.

Was George Carlin Right?

The late comedian George Carlin once said, “Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.”

Trent’s First Fish

Have you ever noticed that when kids are young and growing fast, something from only four years back seems like an eternity ago? In that spirit, I’d like to share a great memory with you - "way back" from 2009. I hope it brings a smile to your face. Have a great weekend!

You’re Free to Have Fun

Last year Pastor Mark posted a blog on July 4 that caught my attention, so I wanted to share it with you today. It continues on the theme I blogged about on Tuesday, about vacations and rest.

Analyzing the Supreme Court’s Decisions on Marriage

On today’s Focus on the Family Daily Broadcast, you’ll hear as Dr. Al Mohler, Focus Board member and president of Southern Seminary and George Mason University law professor Helen Alvare and I discuss the rulings expected impact to families and the Church.

Millennial Support for Marriage is #NotDeadYet

Millions of teens and twenty-somethings are standing firm for marriage. Among them are the brightest young men and women we welcome each year to our Focus Leadership Institute, where they learn about Christian worldview and God’s design for marriage and family.

Why I'm Not Despairing Over the Marriage Rulings

Today's two rulings do not touch the 38 states across our nation that enshrine natural marriage as law. And the two rulings don't diminish the job of the Church to proclaim God's truth to a culture that desperately needs it.

Why Orthodox Christians Should Appreciate an Unorthodox Bono

As Bono spoke, the phrase from the Bible that ran through my mind was from the Epistle of James: “faith without works is dead” (2:26). In other words, don’t just talk the talk, walk the walk. It’s a basic tenet of Christian orthopraxy: following God and living by faith takes practice. And loving God and obeying His Word is nothing if not practical.

Bono in the Spotlight

By now you may have heard that Bono will be our special guest on tomorrow’s broadcast. Yes, that Bono – the rock star and human rights activist who is also a committed Christian. In fact, it’s his faith that motivates him to help those in extreme poverty and living with HIV/AIDS.

Over the years Focus has enjoyed working with Exodus’ leadership, including its current president, Alan Chambers. The dedicated team at Exodus has been used by the Lord to educate, inspire and encourage countless people.

Dr. Al Mohler Remembers His Father

I want to thank Dr. Mohler for his openness in sharing these heartfelt reflections. He's given us an intimate glimpse into a father-son relationship that is so sacred and so special that it is eclipsed only by the bond between God, our Heavenly Father, and His children.

Please Watch this Video

I wish you could have been sitting with our team the other day when we gathered to watch a short video. It’s about a young couple and their unborn child, and the story is told from the perspective of the father. We’ve titled it “A Letter from Dad.” Since you couldn’t be there the other day, I hope you’ll take a moment to watch it now.

These Things I'll Remember

Yesterday was Father’s Day. For those keeping score at home, it was the 113th anniversary of the holiday, a day that finds its origin in the genius of a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd.

To all my fellow dads out there – Happy Father’s Day!
