Black Christian Families | Episode 02

June 22, 2021

In this episode, we discuss the general life strengths, marital strengths, and parenting strengths of Black Christian families. Prayer and having faith in (and a personal relationship with) God are two of the permeating strengths of Black Christian families. The majority of Black Christians we interviewed believed God was present and actively involved in their lives--a belief that positively influenced marriage and family relationships, commitment, and cohesion.

This podcast features conversations about faith and family life between the Co-directors of the American Families of Faith project (http://AmericanFamiliesofFaith.byu.edu) Dr. David Dollahite and Dr. Loren Marks. This podcast is edited, syndicated, and marketed by Laura McKeighen, the Intellectual Products Coordinator for the American Families of Faith project.
