A New Way to Celebrate Mothers
United Families International has been a defender of the family for over thirty years! We believe firmly that the traditional family has a unique and irreplaceable role in transmitting cultural values, instilling personal morality, and strengthening the interpersonal bonds that make civilization possible.
We further recognize that the family is being weakened by society through laws, media, and individualistic ideologies – all which cleverly and subtly work their way into the hearts and minds of individuals thus threatening the family from within as well as from without.
In honor of Mother’s Day celebrations that occur worldwide this week, United Families International is pleased to announce its newest line of defense — a new website. WorldFamilyForum.com was created to offer family strengthening tools that clearly identify the principles and practices upon which strong families flourish. We feel it is a great companion to the website we opened last year: WorldFamilyNews.com WorldFamilyNews shares information on the threats as well as the good things happening to families around the world. It’s your chance to quickly and easily stay informed.
With the addition of WorldFamilyForum.com, you can now not only know what is happening to families, but what you can do to strengthen your own family! We invite you to visit and share the information provided in these two websites to strengthen YOUR family. It is the most important and satisfying work you will ever do!
Mothers are Irreplaceable!
We also wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to Mothers around the world for your irreplaceable contribution to the success of our society. The virtues of integrity, love of liberty, honesty, compassion, and confidence all are facilitated in the early and constant care of a mother’s love. It is upon these virtues and that strong civilizations exist. When mothers are in the home building families, character is built that sustains cultural prosperity and success.
Likewise, tremendous amounts of social science data show that when homes are broken and dysfunctional, society suffers socially, educationally, and financially. The problems of divorce, devaluation of parenting, declining family time, confusions over sexual identity, promiscuity, sexually transmitted diseases, abortion, poverty, excessive taxation and below-replacement fertility are worldwide concerns that beset civilizations that are not founded on strong traditional families. Truly our greatest protection against the loss of liberty and quality of life is found inside the walls of our homes where mothers are dedicated to creating the next generation of responsible citizens.
United Families International wishes to thank the good women of the world who are making a difference in the lives of our children today. Perhaps one of the greatest enemies to this effort is each mother’s personal discouragement in wanting to be a better mother than she feels she is. If that is a battle you are fighting, please remember you don’t have to have an “ideal family” to preserve the ideal of the family!
We recognize the difficultly of your work and we are convinced that it is a work that cannot be left to others. As Mother’s Day approaches this year, we invite you to reflect on the importance of the role of mothers and make sure your mother is adequately thanked and recognized for the contribution she makes to a healthy society!
One final note: If you have ever experienced a mid-life crisis you know how it feels to want desperately to do, learn, and improve so many things only to find you have very little means and time to do it! At United Families International we are experiencing a MID-YEAR crisis! Your year-end generosity has sustained us these past six months as we have carefully budgeted each sacred donation towards helping protect and preserve the family. But there is so much left to do and the well is running dry!
More than 95 percent of UFI’s funding comes from individuals like you. Please consider becoming a regular donor and help us fight the many battles with which families are confronted. Your financial support goes directly to defending life, marriage, and the family for our children’s future. UFI uses donations wisely in promoting the values we all share. Thank you, in advance, for your generous support.
Enjoy a Meaningful Mothers Day!
President, United Families International
