Summer is here, and I know how much fun it is to pick a good movie or choose a good book to relax. But in our ever-busy day and age, it’s tough to find the time to properly vet whether my selection will build me up or bring me down.

That’s why I’m so thankful for the resources specifically created by Focus on the Family. For 40 years, Focus has been a name that families can trust. That includes being a source of entertainment and education for the whole family. I can always trust that the content is biblically sound and will strengthen my relationship with Christ.

Here are just a couple of faith-building resources that I’d love to tell you about:
