About Us

Welcome to FamiliesAlive

FamiliesAlive exists to help parents raise children who know, love and serve the Lord.

FamiliesAlive started in 2002 as a dream the Lord planted in a multi-generational family. Over the years we observed that families of faith are struggling. We realized something else: when families struggle, churches and the society in which they live struggle. Healthy families that do a good job of passing values and the heritage of faith to their children are the key to healthy churches and a healthy society.

It is our hope that this website will encourage you in the job God has given you as parents and grandparents. Thanks for checking us out and giving us the opportunity to show you some ways to impact the next generation for the Lord.

FamiliesAlive is committed to helping families raise children who know, love and serve the Lord.

Our heart is ministering to families, encouraging and strengthening them through a Biblical understanding of relationships, so that Biblical faith is passed on from one generation to the next.

We exist to help parents and grandparents “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done … so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.” (Ps 78:4, 6-7 NIV)

We believe that God is the creator of the family (Gen 2:21-25, 4:1-2, 25-26), that parents are given the responsibility to teach their children about God (Deut 6), and that God delights to work in the children and grandchildren of His followers down through the generations. (Ex 20:4).
