What We Do
We connect like-minded people in discussion groups and give you everything you need (like a book club). We provide tons of information for the discussions, outlines, research, and even talking points for learning about and discussing more than twenty hot-button topics.
How It Works
Before your friends gather, notify everyone of the topic and have them read, in advance, two articles and watch two videos – more if you’re feeling ambitious – from the topic list. Gather and discuss what you’ve learned – and don’t forget the snacks! Go home prepared to make a difference! Learn more here.
These topic units present principles that support the healthiest relationships and lifestyles. While there are many who, through no fault of their own, do not enjoy the benefits of these ideal circumstances, discussing ideal principles and their benefits does two things: 1) understanding these principles acknowledges and gives validity to a sense of loss or a pain point, and 2) these principles provide a clear path for creating the healthiest families and societies.
For example, adopted children may feel a desire to discover more about their biological parents. Acknowledging that sense of loss is a good step towards making peace with their lives, rather than denying the curiosity exists and feeling guilty or ashamed. Another example is single parents who struggle with a double burden. Their strength and heroism in their daily efforts is intensified rather than negated by the best-practice principle of raising children with a father and mother, because the difficulty is acknowledged.
Many may argue that, out of compassion, we must teach principles that all feel they are capable of living. This approach is destructive. For example, the values being promoted in society right now are diversity, equity and inclusion. Looked at closely it appears to reject traditional values in an effort to make the “marginalized” feel better. This is like not teaching about how essential Vitamin D is to health because the sun doesn’t shine in your neighborhood. If you acknowledge that our bodies need Vitamin D, even though you don’t have it around you naturally, you can find ways to supplement so you can attain the healthiest lifestyle.
The truth is most fall short of these ideal principles. Nevertheless, that is not a reason to discard them. We need them desperately in our personal lives, families and society. As you read through these lessons please keep the following in mind:
1) Ideal principles explain pain points and promote health; they don’t marginalize people.
2) Ideal principles guide choices; they don’t categorize people.
