Focus On The Family


Hey everyone. I stumbled up something today that I want to share with all of you. I am sure that many of you have heard of Focus on the Family before. Apparently, you can give them a call & they will let you speak with a counselor FREE of charge! How awesome is that?

I don't know any details about the extent of their help, but I wanted to be sure that you all knew about this. When we face turmoil in our lives sometimes we are embarrassed or ashamed to turn to people that know us, our spouse, our family, our friends, etc. I feel that this is a good resource & service where you can talk to a person that can listen to you & won't have any predetermined ideas about you or your situation.

It appears from their website that they cover many topics, including, marriage, separation, divorce, strengthening your marriage, parenting, addiction, infidelity, sex, abuse, financial challenges, etc. There is a long list. We can all use a little help sometime & this service is FREE. Check it out & let me know what you think.

Yes, it's true. We offer a one-time phone consultation for free as we have for a couple decades now. We want to help point you in the right direction with advice, hope and encouragement and can even recommend a counselor near you if a long-term counseling arrangement is needed. We're here to help! Please tell your friends!

Aimee, I miss your posts already :( My prayers are with you though as you concentrate on the many things that you have going on right now and where your heart is leading you.

I love Focus On The Family and since my separation 9months ago, have been a regular visitor. They have excellent podcasts too to download.
Thank you for sharing their link and information.

Yes, I took advantage of this about 2 weeks ago, and talked with a lovely counselor about my separation. Very compassionate and wise and she even sent me a book in the mail!
