July Newsletter 2014

July Newsletter 2014

Dear Friends,

Greetings from the Family Talk ministry team. Dr. Dobson is currently out of town working on a new DVD project that I will explain in detail in a moment. He would appreciate your prayers as he completes this creative work on behalf of the family.

As you've likely read in Dr. Dobson's recent newsletter and email updates, our devoted ministry leader has been engaged in what may be the busiest and most productive year of his life.  He continues to host the daily broadcast program, and to speak in the media and across the nation on behalf of healthy marriages, solid Christian parenting, the sanctity of human life, and promoting righteousness in the culture.
Dr. Dobson has also been working night and day to bring you three brand new and life-changing resources that represent the culmination of nearly 40 years of clinical wisdom, research, and life experience. 

First, Dr. Dobson recently completed his much-anticipated book, Your Legacy – The Greatest Gift (available in September, 2014).

It is the capstone for all the books he has written for families in the past 47 years. The theme is winning your children to Jesus Christ.

Next, he is presently putting the final touches on an intense two-year DVD project called Building A Family Legacy.

This will consist of eight presentations recorded live from three larger churches. The series is a companion program to the Legacy book.  We invite you to join us for the release of the Building a Family Legacy library on October 1-5, 2014, with a worldwide, free simulcast at www.buildingafamilylegacy.com. As you may know, Dr. Dobson released a film series in 1979 called Focus on the Family (not related to the ministry). The publisher announced last week that more than one hundred million people saw the film. That could be considered the first bookend in his professional life. This new DVD series is the second bookend and we are very excited about it.

Finally, Family Talk is excited to officially announce the creation of a partnership with the American Association of Christian Counselors.

AACC is an incredible organization of educators and leaders that serves more than 50,000 members and is committed to building excellence and professionalism in Christian counseling.  Together with AACC, Dr. Dobson has been developing 15 professional certification, undergraduate, and graduate college courses in three key concentrations: Parenting and Child/Adolescent Development, Marriage and Family Studies, and Family Advocacy and Public Policy. Not only will these courses be available to Christian counselors and church lay leaders, but students of all ages can participate in online courses as part of degree programs or simply to gain a deeper personal understanding of how to impact their family.
