When one couple announced their engagement, their friends and family rolled their eyes and told them, “Marriage isn’t worth the trouble.”

In this Focus On The Family podcast (video above, audio below), find out why Lamar and Ronnie Tyler got married anyway and went on to create a unique and thriving marriage ministry.

Lamar grew up in a divorced home, one of the three boys raised by a single mom. Ronnie lived with a boyfriend for 10 years and had two children with him before realising it’s not how she wanted to raise her children.

She reconnected with God, and eventually met and married Lamar. Lamar and Ronnie are now filmmakers who have a mission to promote marriage as a positive thing, especially within the African-American community.

Focus on the Family provides relevant, practical support to help families thrive in every stage of life.  Listen to their daily radio show weekdays on Vision. Find your local times here.

Are You Really Ok?

Did you know that as many as one in five Australians are affected by mental illness every year? This is a problem that we cannot afford to ignore. The impacts are being felt across our communities, both on the health system and the justice system.

Dad’s Toolkit

It’s a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the value of family, and in particular the role of dads, as Father’s Day approaches. What are your strengths as a parent? Are there some areas you could grow in? How do you begin your journey of becoming the parent God has called you to be?

Helping Your Child Through Their First Relationship

We all want to be approachable as parents, but it may be difficult to maintain composure when our kids come home to tell us they have their first boyfriend or girlfriend.

Banning Mobile Phones in Schools

When it comes to our kids, mobile phones can be both a great blessing and a bit of a curse. Schools are just beginning to outlaw them, but not everyone agrees with the decision.
