The family today is in a state of crisis like never before and sadly we don’t have to look beyond our own four walls to see the results. Most of us have two incomes but we’re deeply in debt. … We consider it normal for our children to be best friends with their peers and yet bicker and fight with each other and disrespect their parents. Our churches are full of programs, but 88 percent of children raised in evangelical homes leave the church at the age of 18 never to return. – Shane Moore
From the Moore family, the producers of “Children Are a Blessing“, comes a new series of films that offers something different, families who have chosen to reject the societal norms for family and instead build on the firm foundation of the Word of God. The Moss Family is the first in this series.
From children who are best friends with their siblings, to training daughters to be joyful keepers at home, “The Moss Family” encourages Christians and challenges them to examine the false presuppositions of today’s society.
Their enjoyment of family and the simple pleasures of life stands in stark contrast to the majority of families today who sacrifice time together in their pursuit of activities and possessions.
Family worship, multiple c-sections, hard work and facing family tragedy with faith and confidence in the God who gives and takes away combine to give viewers a peek into the typical day-to-day life of this family who is not ‘typical’ in a nation of people who have turned their backs on God and His Word.
Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which you shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life. (Deuteronomy 32:46.47)
