Why we did The Family Project® and Irreplaceable
It is our hope that families will come face–to–face with God. The Irreplaceable documentary will shed valuable insight on the importance of family. As a further exploration into family values, The Family Project curriculum will help people understand their personal significance in God’s great plan, equipping them to live with an eternal perspective and model God’s design for family to their peers, communities and the world around them.
The goal of The Family Project is to recover the institution of family in light of who God is and what He created humanity to be, and ensure it endures at the centre of society; to renew our culture’s understanding of the family’s traditional, historical place; to reclaim the blessings that flow when families are strong. Crime, poverty and a host of social ills are dramatically reduced when families are vital and healthy.
“The institution of the family stands at a pivotal moment in history. You don’t have to look very far to see the signs of trouble – divorce, abuse, abandonment, addictions and so much more. But amidst this bleak landscape, there is reason for hope. And that hope comes from the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and from God’s blueprint for the family. The Creator’s design works! We need to embrace that design, rather than run away from it. The solution to so many of our society’s ills can be found in a wholehearted investment in stable, healthy families. That’s what The Family Project is all about.”– Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family U.S.
