Is Your Smartphone Making You into an Android?

But I wonder if technology has mostly become a cheap substitute for good old conversation? Not only with our fellow man, but with our Heavenly Father.

BREAKING: Supreme Court Upholds Religious Freedom

This is a great day for religious freedom.

She Told Him She’d Marry Him All Over Again

Many weddings take place in the month of June. It’s a happy time of starry-eyed couples pledging each other a lifetime of love and commitment.

Loving Dads Help Pass On Faith to Kids

In a previous blog post I wrote on passing along a faith that lasts to your children. That post focused on the most important factor parents can do: live out a vibrant faith themselves.

Why Are You Thankful for Your Pastor?

The broadcast team and I are working on a program to honor our pastors, and we’d like your help.

Guest Post: Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties.

Last week I introduced a series by Bruce Hausknecht, Focus’ judicial analyst, on two cases currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. These cases can potentially have far-reaching implication on the state of religious liberties in our country, which is why it’s important that Christians understand what’s going on – and what’s at stake.

What Seattle Pacific University Students Taught Me

Earlier this month, a young male started shooting a gun at Seattle Pacific University, a Christian school. Before he stopped to reload his weapon, he had killed one and injured three others. A 22-year old student, Jon Meis, put himself in harm’s way to stop the gunman from inflicting further harm.

What Does the Bible Say About Homosexuality and Eating Shrimp?

Same-sex marriage is in the news. That’s partly the result of various national-level religious liberty debates stemming from Christian photographers, florists and bakers conscientiously declining to participate in homosexual marriage ceremonies – and the lawsuits that they’ve had to face.

Guest Post: What to Know About Religious Liberties Cases

Two cases currently before the U.S. Supreme Court are of special interest to many people of faith because they deal with the issue of religious liberties.

Know When to Start a Family

The headline certainly draws you in: “Don’t Call Me Grandma: Births to ‘Older’ Moms on the Rise.” The report from NBC News highlights the growing trend of women over age 35 who are having their first baby.

Focus Adoption Conference Recognized as a “National Best Practice”

Since 2008, 2,774 families have initiated the process of adoption from foster care as a result of the collaborative efforts of our Wait No More program. It’s been amazing for us to see that many of these families are choosing to adopt hard-to-place kids like older children, sibling groups or those with special needs.

Stepfamilies Form Part of Our Christian Faith

Stepfamilies exist for different reasons. Sometimes as a result of marriage after divorce… sometimes because of a marriage after the death of a spouse. Sometimes the stepfamily happens because a baby or child born out-of-wedlock creates a blended family after the marriage takes place.

Happy Father’s Day to All the Unsung Heroes

In my latest book, “The Good Dad,” I spent a lot of time and pages on the importance of dads simply “being there” for their kids. “Our kids aren’t asking for perfection,” I wrote. “They’re asking for our presence – to show up for the job each and every day. They’re asking us to be there for them, to guide them, to hug them.”

Did a Teacher Make a Difference in Your Life?

The title of “teacher” is a great one. It conveys passing along wisdom, knowledge and nurturing. Most of us, looking back, can identify at least one teacher who poured into us. It might have been the elementary school teacher who comforted us, or the high school teacher who encouraged us to believe that God made us capable of achieving our dreams. Whatever it was, their care made a big difference in our lives.

Would You Choose a Pet Over a Child?

They call them “fur babies,” and many couples in the U.S. are opting for them. One headline aptly described it this way: “Americans are having dogs instead of babies.”

Typing v. Handwriting: Which Would You Choose?

Typing and “quick communication” have taken over our lives. From the endless emails that are part of many of our jobs to text messages asking if someone can pick up bread and milk on their way home, typing has largely replaced handwriting.

The American Church Has a Choice to Make

Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research, has been consistently coming out with interesting and relevant perspectives on the Christian faith, the general culture and the interaction between the two. I enjoyed sitting down with him in Nashville recently for an interview on his popular internet-based show.

What Do You Do for Family Fun?

While we’re still a few weeks from the official start of summer on June 21, the Daly Family already has a summer kind of mind.

Parenting the Strong-Willed Child as a Team

Let’s be honest: Parenting isn’t for the weak – especially when you’re raising a strong-willed child. It’s not fun when a pint-sized little one defiantly refuses to obey or when a 14-year-old talks back. Our natural instincts want to kick in. It’s all too easy to respond in anger.

The Ultimatum that Saved a Marriage

Where can someone go when their marriage is dead and it’s seems like they’ve exhausted all options? If you’re in that place of martial devastation, I can assure you – there is hope.
