FamilyFire is a community of fellow-strugglers in marriage and families, led by Steven & Deb Koster, whose goal is to encourage you and stoke the Holy Spirit's flame in your home. It exists in live events and retreats, as a Facebook Page, and as this website.
2 Corintians 4:7-9 But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.
FamilyFire is one of many gospel resources produced by ReFrame Media. Our goal is to invite people, wherever they might be, to see in a new way what God is already doing in their lives. God reveals, revives, and renews, and when you see what God is doing, your whole world is reframed by a new perspective. We want you to see God’s story in your life. For an overview of the media outreach we provide for all ages and walks of life, visit www.reframemedia.com.

We beam the message of salvation to all corners of the earth in ten major world languages, using radio, television, the Internet, telecommunications, and the printed page. Ministry leaders, natives to their own language cultures, provide leadership in production of culturally relevant programs and follow-up in order to present Jesus Christ and help people to grow in their faith.

"More importantly, if it is so difficult, why bother trying to make marriage work? For starters, it is one of the greatest gifts you can give your children. Research consistently shows that children tend to fare better in married, two-parent households. The investment you make in your marriage not only rewards you and your spouse, the dividends spill over to your children as well"
