As you know, we’ve had to cancel our conferences, but we still care about you and we see this season as a huge opportunity for all of us to grow stronger in our marriages and families. So we’re launching new online tools and events to keep on investing in you. You’ll find those all here. We’re proud to be partnering with Compassion Canada as the sponsor for these new resources. Compassion Canada is a global leader in connecting children who live in extreme poverty to the resources and education they need so that they develop healthy bodies, minds, souls and relationships.

Great Marriages Don’t Just Happen
Our first ever online mini-conference was on May 2nd. We followed this up with the Great Marriages Don’t Just Happen Webinar Series — 8 weeks of interactive marriage teaching streamed live on Saturday mornings (9-10AM Pacific Time).
The sessions are still available for you to watch this summer (the links are below). Though it’s not required, we recommend watching the mini-conference first (Here’s the link).

Help and Hope @ Home
May 2nd, 2020 | 9:00 am – 11:00 am (Pacific Time)
These are interesting days for marriages and families! All this togetherness can bring out the best — and the worst — in us. But it also brings a once in a lifetime opportunity to shape our relationships into something better, healthier and more full of joy.
We would love to help! For over 30 years, FamilyLife Canada has been hosting marriage conferences that help couples deepen their connection, learn new tools and live into God’s incredible design for marriage. In this season of physical distancing, we would like to invite you to join us for our first ever online mini-conference… because these days, we could all use some more Help and Hope @ Home.

The Pure Victory Podcast is faith-based inspiration to win at sex, conquer porn, and find purpose in staying free forever. Join hosts Braden Hafner (FamilyLife Canada’s Regional Director for Alberta) and Matt Cline (Director of Restored Ministries) as they discuss what has helped them find freedom form porn, live with purpose, and experience God’s design for healthy sexuality. Due to the pandemic, global porn use is up more than 11% globally. If you or your spouse is struggling in this area, Braden and Matt are here to help!
Step into My Shoes
If you have children at home, we encourage you to take advantage of this excellent resource put together by our partners, Compassion Canada. This is a great learning and discipleship experience to have together.
Step into My Shoes is a flexible, immersive experience and devotional for families and groups. Each step helps children walk in the shoes of Ugandan family Pastor Tom, his wife Nancy and their children and then invites us to follow Jesus’ footsteps—caring for children and for those in need.
