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.

Focus Joins with National Institute of Marriage to Help Couples in Crisis

We’ve all seen a marriage in crisis. We all know people who have struggled (or are struggling) within their marital relationship. Maybe that someone is you. Or perhaps it’s someone you love, like a son or daughter or your best friend from high school.

Congratulations to Focus Radio Theatre on Industry’s Top Win

Focus on the Family Radio Theatre’s production of the Charles Dickens classic “Oliver Twist” won the 2014 Audie Award for Best Audio Drama. An Audie is a significant achievement for anyone involved in spoken word entertainment. The special recognition is the genre’s equivalent to the Academy Awards given out to exemplary movies and films.

Post-Abortive Woman Calls Focus Broadcast “Voice of Hope” (VIDEO)

For those of us whose pro-life convictions stem from our Christian faith, the New Jersey Star-Ledger’s recent headline was disconcerting: “Why I perform abortions: A Christian obstetrician explains his choice.”

Human Cloning Advancements Pose Serious Questions for Life Advocates

I consider myself blessed to live at a time where we benefit from so many advances in medical science. In terms of physical health, we’re all much better off today than we were or would have been just a few decades ago.

Should 2-Year-Olds Be Given Medication for ADHD?

It’s an unsettling trend that’s quickly gaining speed: toddlers are increasingly being prescribed drugs for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Santa Barbara Killings Remind Us of Violent Video Games’ Role in Culture

Video games are in the news more and more – and usually, it’s not for good reasons. Gaming is sometimes blamed in the growing trend where young men are finding it increasingly difficult to achieve major life milestones like moving out of their parents’ house, going to college, getting married and starting a family. Some of these men are stuck in a prolonged adolescence; one stat says 18-to- 34-year-old men spend more time playing video games than 12-to- 17-year-old boys.

Tears at Midnight 2014

Some time ago I found myself in Washington D.C. attending a series of meetings. After spending the entire day and evening inside several buildings, I was eager for some fresh air. What followed would be a night I’d never forget.

Navy Seal’s Commencement Speech Full of Common-Sense Wisdom

May is full of graduations – for so many students, it’s a time of transition to a new era looming with possibility.

Girls Propositioning Boys: Helping Your Son When the Tables Are Turned

Today’s children are growing up faster than ever. Thanks to TV, overtly sexual songs on the radio and the Internet, most kids have likely seen, heard and experienced more than their counterparts from previous generations.

An Interview with Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall

Since the self-titled debut of Casting Crowns‘ first album was released in 2003, the band has enjoyed great popularity among Christian audiences – but not for reasons you’d might expect.

Joan of Arc… Noah’s Wife?

If your family is in a Bible-reading slump, perhaps what you need is a fun way to inject some energy back into the discipline.

Colorado Springs: The Best City for Love?

In a light-hearted article, the Wall St. Journal recently declared Colorado Springs, Colo., where Focus is headquartered, the top place in the U.S. to find love. Seriously. Here at Focus, we think that’s great. In fact, we’re even holding a gathering event that might help cement that title: this Aug. 7-9 Focus on the Family’s Boundless ministry is hosting Pursuit 2014, a special weekend for single 18-39 year olds.

A Tale of Two Countries

Two stories struck me yesterday. In one way, they’re unrelated and yet at the same time, very much connected.

Last Chance to See Irreplaceable in Theaters - TONIGHT!

I’m returning from Nashville this evening after having spent some time of rich fellowship with many friends of the ministry as well as listeners of our great radio affiliates in the Music City. But before I jump on the plane, I wanted to remind you that tonight’s encore showing of Irreplaceable represents the last time the documentary will be shown in theaters.

Two Ways Dads Can Help Their Children Succeed

Success. How to define it? To many Americans, success means challenging yourself to reach your full potential. It can mean financial stability and the ability to provide for a family. To many in the world, it means reaching a certain level of self-fulfillment. And while there are various ways the above goals can be reached, the fact is that a college diploma remains an important common denominator of the American definition of success in many cases.

We Need to Love Post-Abortive Women

The video Emily Letts recently made of her abortion was understandably met with shock, horror, sadness and disbelief. In it, the 25-year-old abortion counselor shares her story of facing an unexpected pregnancy, and includes footage of her undergoing the procedure during her first trimester. It is a sobering and painful video to watch. How should those of us who value human life respond?

There’s Something About Mom

Many of us celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday. Social media platforms were filled with smiling pictures as some of us remembered our moms who have since passed away. Other snapshots were of today’s young moms, surrounded by babies and toddlers and all the hope and promise they bring. Mothers of grown children as well as grandmothers and birthmothers were also celebrated.

Thank you, MVP Moms

No one can make a grown man cry with humble appreciation like a mom. Take Kevin Durant, the 25-year-old winner of the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player award. During his emotional speech that took place just in time for Mother’s Day, Durant reflected back on the uphill road his single mother, Wanda Pratt, walked with her two young sons.

Boy Praises His Way Out of Kidnapping

A 9-year-old Atlanta boy had a unique response to being kidnapped from his own driveway last month: he sang praises to God. Willie Myrick, now 10, repeatedly sang Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise” during the three-hour ordeal. Eventually, his abductor – who had been cursing and telling the boy to shut up – pulled the car over and kicked him out.
