WHAT: Capping a decades-long career of equipping parents to raise godly families, Dr. James Dobson’s BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY—an eight-DVD series that combines his updated classic Focus on the Family videos with four new films from Dr. Dobson and his son, Ryan—debuts Sept 30. YOUR LEGACY—one of the new films that equips parents and grandparents to build a lasting legacy of faith in their families—premieres in a worldwide simulcast in thousands of churches Oct. 1-5.
A personal story of faith, YOUR LEGACY traces Dr. Dobson’s own family history to show what a tremendous difference praying families can make. It is an inspiring look back . . . and forward. Dr. Dobson’s great-grandfather started daily prayers over a century ago that the next four generations of his family would be Christians. YOUR LEGACY explores the breathtaking implications of intentionally giving your children a heritage of faith.
“It’s harder now to raise kids than it’s ever been because the culture is at war with families,” Dr. Dobson said. “I feel BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY contains the most important message of my career. There is nothing more important than parents passing on a generational legacy of faith and values to their children.”
BACKGROUND: More than 80 million people—a third of the U.S. population at the time—saw the original Focus on the Family films that shaped the way a generation viewed family and parenting. In 2008, Ryan Dobson found those films gathering dust and convinced his father that today’s generation of young parents needs Dr. Dobson’s timeless insight more than ever.
The result? The BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY DVDs with four classic films and four new films. The DVDs and simulcast are supported by new books from Dr. Dobson, Your Legacy, and Ryan, Wanting to Believe; by the updating and reissue of classic Dobson works such as Dare to Discipline and The Strong-Willed Child; and by a new series of study guides for the books and films.
