About this title

Synopsis:

Sharon Slater, president of Family Watch International, has come to understand up close and personal the powerful forces mounted against the family. Ten years ago, as a stay-at-home mom, Sharon first learned about the efforts to undermine the traditional family. Since that first exposure, Sharon has worked as a pro-family advocate at the United Nations and at the national, state and local level to preserve and protect the institution of the family. Now, in her new book, she shares firsthand accounts, backs them with alarming empirical evidence and, as the title of her book suggests, extends A call to responsible citizens everywhere to Stand for the Family. Stand for the Family was written with three main goals in mind: To make people aware of what is happening behind closed doors at the UN and elsewhere to undermine the family. To equip legislators, policymakers, educators and responsible citizens with the knowledge and tools to take an effective stand for the family. To serve as a gathering tool to cause good people throughout the world from all professions and walks of life to come together, to network together to defend the traditional mother/father family. Already the book has been well received by community and church leaders, policymakers and individuals from around the world. At the recent World Congress of Families in Amsterdam, Sharon presented a copy of her book to a King from Ghana and he requested a second copy to give to the President of the International Criminal Court, who he was meeting with a few days later. Another person requested five copies for the Canadian Parliament. One young woman said she was captivated and stayed up much of the night reading. A couple who read the manuscript before the book went to print used the information in the marriage chapter in family home evening to help their teenagers overcome misconceptions about homosexuality and same-sex marriage and to help them understand that it is not hateful to protect marriage. The book is not a profit-making venture for Sharon or her family. All of the proceeds go to benefit Family Watch International and the work to defend the family.
