Are You Equipped to Love Your Family Well?


Have you ever seen pictures of the people in African villages washing clothes, bathing, and drinking from the same filthy water source? Day after day they’re consuming dirty, diseased water and they are getting sick and dying.

In the same way, people in our country are getting sick from a lack of clean, truthful resources. They’re consuming polluted, dirty stuff from the world’s well and it’s inflicting enormous emotional, mental, and even physical pain in relationships and on families.

How do I know? I know because people are telling us…they’re emailing and commenting on our websites, blogs, and social media by the thousands.

They know something is missing in their marriage. They know what their kids are consuming isn’t good for them. They know things are not the way they’re supposed to be. They’re searching and thirsting for something that will satisfy them. So where are they turning for answers? More often than not, they’re searching online for answers.

85% of people in the U.S. are now online.

98% of those online say the internet is an essential source for their information…including information about parenting, marriage, and relationships. The Internet is not people’s additional stop; it’s their first stop.

What are they searching for the most? What are people really craving? Love…to love and be loved. This year, there will be 360,000,000 online searches in the U.S. alone for “love”…more than the entire US population.

People are going to the Internet to answer their deepest questions. Unfortunately, they are getting tainted advice that will make them even sicker. People are searching for love in all the wrong places, and they don’t even know what love is.

People crave love. Like water, love is a basic need. We were created in the image of God, and therefore created to love and be loved. In his greatest commandment, Jesus says love God and love others with everything we’ve got. (Matthew 22:36-39) Love is all about giving…giving selflessly and sacrificially to others. Love…we crave it, God commands it, but people can’t find it. That’s why Family First is here.

Our sole mission is: To provide parenting, marriage, and relational truth that helps people love their family well and gives them greater hope for the future.

For years, we’ve been bringing that truth to millions of people each day through our All Pro Dad, iMOM, and Family Minute programs. We bring it in NFL stadiums, in public schools, on billboards, on mainstream radio, and online…we’re doing it in the world.

Our purpose is to bring glory to God by sharing His truth, His love, and His hope to families worldwide. It’s for our kids and grandkids. And it’s for you, me, and the thousands like us who want to love well.
