As we reflect on the history of our great nation, it's hard not to be in awe of the vision, courage, and tenacity of our American Founders. These remarkable men risked everything they had to create a new form of government that would safeguard individual freedom and guarantee the pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness for generations to come. Over the next five days, the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute (JDFI) will be honoring five of our nation’s 55 Founders (those individuals who attended the Constitutional Convention in 1787). Their wisdom and experience was derived from their ardent faith in God. We hope the brief summaries about the lives of these great men will inspire you to reflect on the values that have made America great.
