Is McDonald’s Harming Children?

5 Factors That Make Married Sex Fulfilling

The New York Times recently ran an article that explored the premise that couples in egalitarian marriages had sex less frequently. So how is a union defined as “egalitarian?” According to “Does a More Equal Marriage Mean Less Sex?” it’s where husbands and wives “share the housework and child care, communicate openly and prioritize each other’s careers.”

How to Be a Good Dad When You Didn’t Have One

If you want to know how much dads matter in the lives of their children, ask me – I didn’t grow up with a dad. My biological dad, stepdad and foster dad were all out of my life by the time I turned 13. It’s tough to go through life with a father who’s either physically or emotionally absent. But don’t take my word for it; just look at the statistics. They’ll show you how things go awry when a dad’s not at home.

WATCH: Behind the Scenes of Focus’ “Irreplaceable” Movie

I’ve been blogging a lot about “Irreplaceable,” Focus on the Family’s first movie debuting in a one-night theater event on May 6.

Can Our Film “Irreplaceable” Rise Above Censorship Efforts?

It started in December, when Focus on the Family first began running “Irreplaceable” trailers in cinemas across the nation. The trailer – which you can watch on YouTube – was benign, a collection of clips with a voiceover of host Tim Sisarich asking what happened to the belief in traditional family. What happened to the view that a man and woman should marry, raise children and remain committed for a lifetime?

Dave Ramsey Likens Focus Movie/Curriculum to “Investment in Your Family”

It’s hard to believe we’re less than a month away from debuting “Irreplaceable,” Focus on the Family’s first-ever movie.
