Focus on The Family: Sometimes It’s Tough

by Amy on July 30, 2011

There are times when my role in our family life needs recharged. When it’s been noted that “Mom’s gone off the grid lately,” I try to rein myself back in.

I have always been a Dr. James Dobson fan and have read some of his books on parenting for guidance as a mother wanting to understand her children’s needs. Dr. Dobson was the founder of Focus on the Family but has since moved on to other ventures.

Focus on the Family is a resource that gives “relevant Christian advice on marriage, parenting and other topics.” I’ve always enjoyed the literature and have found the site equally helpful at times when I felt like I lost my map in parenting and held myself responsible for our family’s lack in unity and harmony.

Although leaving Focus on the Family was due in part to starting a new chapter in his life, he left on a positive note and continues with his broadcast ministry, Family Talk. I highly recommend Dr. Dobson’s books and Focus on the Family as resources for maintaining positive, Christian relationships. Both have helped me be the kind of mom and wife I want to be.

You had me at “sometimes my role in our family life needs recharged.” Summer has exhausted me … it’s fun, family time and hard work, but some days I’m guilty of “checking out” and doing what needs done without being the leader and disciplinarian and organizer I should be. Thanks for a little kick in the rear to get me moving again :) Have a lovely Sunday!
