Music

Enjoying and learning a lot. Could you update your music for a new generation of parents? Feels so 90’s!!

Vaccine Mandates

I will no longer support or listen to anything produced by Focus on the Family or their affiliates. Forcing a vaccine not only goes against personal and medical freedom, but it also has aborted fetal cells within it. Greatly saddened to see a ministry do something like this.
