Coming to you live today from Focus on the Family up in Colorado Springs, as we support their important work of strengthening and supporting families and parents – many of them right here in LA. Your monthly pledge of $30 or more helps FOTF stay on KKLA, helping even more families and marriages. To help, call 1-855-515-5433 or give online at FocusOnTheFamily.com/KKLA.
• For your gift of $30 a month, you get to choose from three "thank you" gifts: 1) A 3-CD set of their best Life Changing Conversations with experts on family, marriage and parenting from their national radio program. 2) A JellyTelly DVD entitled What's in the Bible? from the creators of Veggie Tales. 3) A fully-dramatized CD of C.S. Lewis' classic tale The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe from their Family's Radio Theatre.
• Please consider making a one-time special gift of $500 or more to scholarship a struggling couple to attend Hearts Restored. Led by Greg & Erin Smalley, couples will learn step-by-step conflict resolution designed to help them reclaim hope for their marriage. 84% of divorce-minded couples end up changing their minds once they attend sessions like this – 5 years later! "$500 saves a marriage!" And thanks to a generous OC donor, these gifts will be doubled today.
• In 2011: FOTF made 64,000 counseling follow-up phone calls, was responsible for 83,000 decisions for Christ, helped 750,000 parents in crisis with troubled kids, and saved over 1,400,000 marriages! Each day, over 7,000 people call the FOTF helpline at 1-800-A-FAMILY.
• But, maybe it's your marriage or family that's in trouble today. Please know FOTF cares, and if you want to call and talk to someone who will listen and help, call their family help line at 1-800-A-FAMILY (1-800-232-6459). It's totally free, and they have licensed counselors who can help you sort through the stuff that's going on with your family. They're available M-F from 5AM-7PM Pacific.
