The Christian tradition sees both family life and work as two God-given spheres of human responsibility. Yet many parents experience work and family life as sources of constant conflict.
What would it look like for work and family spheres to complement, rather than compete with, each other?
Join us in advancing policies that honor God’s call to both work and family life.
Families Valued is an initiative of the Center for Public Justice, a civic education and public policy organization that works to equip citizens, develop leaders and shape policy to serve God, advance justice and transform public life.
Ensuring that families have time to care
The family is the most basic human institution. We recognize its inherent God-given value, as well as its value to a healthy society.
Report: Time to Flourish
BY KATELYN BEATY AND RACHEL ANDERSON
This report from Families Valued and the Center for Public Justice explores the topic of time as it relates to family life and family stress.
Our focus on time is not to neglect the many conditions that foster family well-being, but to encourage sustained consideration of the particular condition of family time.
Greater attention to family time may help us understand and mitigate the complex stresses and fragmentation affecting too many American families. For pro-family Christians who are committed to family flourishing, family time-stress is worth close scrutiny.
