We offer a comprehensive collection of self-help articles and videos (coming soon) addressing the many problems of individual, marriage and family life. New articles/videos are added weekly.

Online Classes

We provide classes designed to strengthen all family relationships.  Including: classes for preparing teens for safe/healthy dating, preparing engaged couples for strong marriages, and classes designed to strengthen marriage, family and parenting skills--all taught from a Christian worldview.


IFP surveys/interviews couples and family members to identify the ever-changing problem areas in marriage and family life.  Effective solutions to these problems are then developed and made available to the public in web-based and printed form.
