God created families–every human being was created in His image. Sin ruined His plan, but through Christ’s death, He opened the possibility for reconciliation and restoration. Because of God’s love, mercy, and sacrifice for us, we strive to strengthen, rebuild, restore, and reconcile families to God’s image.
 
A true family is not always one's own flesh and blood. It is a climate of the heart.
