The focus in 2015 is definitely on the family and how to strengthen, uplift and assist moms and dads in their primary role as parents. Thus, Family Honor thought this would be a good time to make some critically important updates in our online course, The Truth and Meaning of Sexuality, Love and Family: Cultural Implications.
Over the next few months we will be moving our course material to a new ‘online platform’. This change is designed to make the online course experience much more user-friendly for those who take our course, and this will likely save you time as you move through the course. Another key change will be to update some of the course content so that we are bringing you the most relevant and recent material that we can on topics, church documents and research relating to chastity education, the family, parenting resources, child development and more. In the meantime, you would be helping our efforts a great deal if you would take 5 minutes to fill out our short survey by February 25. Click here for the survey. Thanks in advance for your input and stay tuned in the coming months for more news about our online course!

“Excellent presenters that went above and beyond in trying to make us feel comfortable during the entire program.” “Wonderful program and presenters.” “Fun and interactive.”
There is no such thing as a perfect parent or a perfect family. But there is help and encouragement for moms and dads who want to have a stronger connection to their sons and daughters and who feel like they need a jump start in communicating with their teens and pre-teens about their values, virtues and everything going on in the culture today.
Likewise, most parents want a better experience for their teens than they had growing up with regard to learning about God’s gift of sex. Family Honor programs provide the opportunity, the language and the age-appropriate resources for parents and teens, and we do it in the context of programs that are fun, positive and encouraging and that respect the modesty of participants and the dignity of the human person.
