"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes." Romans 1:16 (ESV)

'I Would Speak Up—If I Knew What to Say'

It's probably happened to most of us at one point in time. The opportunity to speak to an issue we care about is before us, yet we fail to take advantage of the moment, because we're not sure what to say. The opening for meaningful conversation is at hand, such as with these recent headlines:
  • Bruce Jenner says he's a woman. How should Christians respond?
  • The U.S. Supreme Court is considering the redefinition of marriage. Why does it matter if a same-sex couple gets married?
  • Terminally ill patients want physician-assisted suicide. Why not let them die by a doctor's hand?
And, yet we stop cold, because we feel unprepared.
With the demands and fast pace of life, few people have time to research current social issues or to develop strategic talking points that address the secular worldview arguments that often undergird a counter view.
That's where Focus on the Family's Thriving Values team comes in.
Our staff of issue experts have dedicated decades to researching the hot social topics of the day. From giving interviews to major media outlets to crafting relevant talking points, this group of experts knows what to say.
And, the resources they develop help people like you every day:
"I am extremely grateful for Focus on the Family and the public policy materials you produce—not only for my own use but for the countless times I've shared information with others."—George, Texas
"I want to thank everyone at Focus on the Family for speaking out about key cultural and policy issues that affect us….Thank you for your continued encouragement, and for spotlighting the trends that impact present and future generations."—Renee, Florida
How can we help to equip you?
If reading is your preferred learning style, our Social Issues web page houses easy-to-consume resources on many topics.
However, if you'd rather watch a video, our Thriving Values™ YouTube® channel features more than 65 topical videos, most less than three minutes long.
Either way, an investment of 5-10 minutes a week will equip you to speak with accuracy, confidence and love the next time opportunity knocks.
Get equipped. Get engaged. Redeem the culture—one video at a time.
