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:

Do you need a tissue? I’ve seen this video several times, but it never fails to leave me with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat.

What makes the story most compelling, of course, is that it’s true. Every single day ordinary people are living out extraordinary lives like this brave couple, motivated and emboldened by their belief and faith in God. Life isn’t easy. But God is always faithful, even when His ways don’t make sense to us.

In the coming months and years you’ll be seeing a series of similar video vignettes produced by the Focus team, all designed to lift up God’s design and plan for the family. In fact, over the course of the next six months, our team will be filming what we’re calling “The Family Project” – a 13-part video curriculum and accompanying feature-length documentary outlining and highlighting both the challenges to family stability in the modern-world as well as Scripture’s beautiful blueprint for the institution of the family.

I’ll be sharing more about this in the days to come, but I hope you might consider sharing this powerful video with your family and friends.

And please let us know what you think.
