Nothing is more important than saving marriages and families. The family is the core unit of society and every effort must be made to help families stay strong. When marriages are strengthened and parents are filled with desire to teach their children strong family values then societies flourish. Sometimes all they need is a little help and guidance.
With this in mind a new site called FamilyShare.com has been created. It is loaded with valuable tips for all families in all types of situations. Basically, it’s for everyone who faces challenges in their family and is wishing for a little bit of light to show a better way. Articles that can be read in 3 to 5 minutes are at your fingertips, served up in an easy-to-read bite-size format.
FamilyShare.com is so simple to access that anyone can jump in at a moment’s notice, even while standing in line at the grocery store or sitting in a doctor’s office waiting. Now this previously-wasted-time can become the perfect opportunity to click into FamilyShare.com on your smart phone or iPad and learn a few valuable tidbits to help your marriage and family grow stronger. Some readers have been so impressed with the site that they have bookmarked it as their home page.
FamilyShare.com, run by Deseret Digital Media, is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, under the Deseret Management Corporation. Deseret Digital Media also runs KSL.com and DeseretNews.com. As with KSL.com and DeseretNews.com, this is not an official publication of the Church.
FamilyShare.com is dedicated to crowd-sourced practical family solutions, with over 350 writers that include therapists, doctors, moms, dads, teachers, writers, etc. from all over the world.
The site is becoming a favorite in the social media world with 17+ million followers on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., and is growing every day. People of all faiths seem to be hungering for information on how to strengthen their families and live life to the fullest. Article content is not specific to LDS readers, but is written to be helpful to all readers regardless of their religious affiliation.
To expand this work Deseret Digital Media has purchased the domains for “family.com” or “families.com” in 100+ countries and languages. This is a worldwide effort to help families and individuals in all walks of life throughout the world.
For example, you will find compelling articles such as, “How to show your dad you love him”, “Is your toddler a streaker? It might be time to talk about modesty,” “How to combine traditions in marriage,” “Family Activities for Teens,” “How to cope with infertility,” “Taking the first steps to saving your marriage,” “Don’t know what to make for dinner? 6 steps for planning a family menu,” “My husband has a porn problem-what do I do now?” “Raising independent kids: What can 11- and 12-year-olds do?” “Six ways to greet your husband at the end of the day,” and the list goes on.
This is a gold mine of information in a multitude of categories. When you click on FamilyShare.com you will see a comprehensive menu on the left, everything from how to show love to your children, to teaching values, to managing your money, to raising teens, to saving your marriage, and more.
