Because divorce is the norm, families need support to survive and thrive in today’s fast-paced, hectic, and disorderly world. In today’s society, everything works against the unity of the family. We watch TV shows, listen to music and go to movies where family break-ups are glamorized. Therefore, families have to be purposeful, deliberate, and aggressive in keeping division out of their homes.
Di-vision, simply means 2 visions. Each and every family needs to decide on a singular vision for their family, and the vision should motivate, encourage, and define each family member’s decisions regarding their future and actions towards others. The family vision should never be diluted, polluted, or substituted for one’s own selfish goals or personal agenda.
FFM is here to coach families and its members in the area of unity and the knowledge that the whole family is stronger than any of its individual members. Sometimes 1 family member has to sacrifice for the good of the whole. FFM exist to provide resources, support, and forums for families to share quality time with each other and build agreement among its members in the areas that really matter, i.e., loyalty, integrity, sacrifice, and love.
We develop creative ideas and implement divine strategies and concepts that give families spiritual booster shots.
