Today I want to share with you stories from the husbands and wives who, through God's grace, experienced a transformation in their marriages after seeking help at Focus on the Family's National Institute of Marriage, as it's now known.
Yesterday I wrote about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from the perspective of military marriages – what might couples expect after a war veteran returns home. Today I'm continuing this two-part series by sharing how couples can work through PTSD in a way that will make the marriage stronger than it ever was before.
With Veterans Day today, it's hard for us at Focus on the Family to forget the many sacrifices the men and women of our armed forces make.
People of faith do not forfeit their freedoms of speech and religion when they go into business.

MONEY magazine recently released its list of "Best Places to Live in America" for 2014, and Castle Rock, Colo., a town just north of Colorado Springs, was number four on the list. We can't all live in Castle Rock – but we can take steps to make our home a great place to live.

As believers, we need to get past the mentality that the only way to serve God completely is to go into ministry. Serving God isn't a race where those in full-time ministry get a head start. It's about being faithful to shine our light wherever it is God's called us to be. It's about knowing that, whether God has planted us in a ministry or a "secular" environment, we can be faithful witnesses to Him.
