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.

Nationwide Encore of “Irreplaceable” May 15!

Last night’s premiere of Focus’ first movie, “Irreplaceable,” was a success in every way possible thanks to God’s grace and your support. In fact, due to the overwhelming response and the fact that many were turned away last night, we have decided to schedule a national encore performance for Thursday, May 15.

Tonight’s the Night to Stand for Family

Here at Focus, we’re all looking forward to tonight’s “Irreplaceable” movie premiere. It’s been months of praying, planning, filming, editing and promotional work. By God’s grace, the final result is a film we are proud of – and humbled by.

Tomorrow Focus on the Family’s first movie, “Irreplaceable,” will debut in more than 700 cinemas across the country. Seats are filling up fast (with some theaters already sold out) – despite attempts to censor our documentary.

Abortion: Empowerment or a Consolation Prize?

Since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in all 50 states in 1973, about 51 million babies have been lost to abortion. It’s a staggering number that also represents millions of women chose to ended their pregnancies.

Does Casual Sex Empower Women?

Last month, a Duke University freshman made headlines because she chose to pay for her college education by appearing in adult movies. This young woman defended her decision to become a porn star via an article where she wrote, “I have never felt more empowered or happy… I am in control of my sexuality.” According to this student, it is “how the world should be.”

The Underreported Cause of Poverty

Income inequality. It’s a hot topic, with everyone from academics, pundits and politicians discussing it. What's behind it?

WATCH: “Huckabee” Show Interview on “Irreplaceable”

Last Friday I told you a bit about my trip to New York City. Among other things during my visit, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Gov. Mike Huckabee to talk with him about Focus on the Family’s first movie, “Irreplaceable,” which will debut in cinemas around the nation in a one-night event on May 6.

Is McDonald’s Harming Children?

The McDonald’s “Happy Meal” is a predictable if not overly nutritious treat of childhood. You know what you’re going to get: a kid-approved meal and a toy. But a recent push by a daughter-father team is turning the traditionally mundane product into a political football.

WATCH: Tim Keller Talks About Suffering

I’m in New York right now on a whirlwind trip.
