About Family Honor:

“The future of the world passes through the family.” – Pope Saint John Paul II

The family is the first and primary school of learning where children begin to understand their dignity as a child of God.

Family Honor, Inc. recognizes a parent’s need to connect with their children and thus provides proven and practical solutions to foster this.  By equipping parents with a new ‘language of love’ and related instructional resources, Family Honor offers parents and their teens the ability to communicate with one another about important life issues, with a special focus on chastity and God’s gift of sexuality.

Family Honor’s Real Love & Real Life program presents the beautiful truths of human sexuality through the lens of Pope Saint John Paul II’s landmark teaching known as “Theology of the Body.”
