The devil seeks to destroy the family, especially the role model of the father. And the devil uses abuse to accomplish this goal. If you are a victim, or a victimizer, it is crucial to understand the hurt of abuse—and how to find healing.

The Supreme Court says the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. There’s no doubt, marriage is under attack. Some say, “Why marry?” Living together is the new norm.
