Hundreds of Thousands of Parents Worldwide

Equipped to Build a Legacy of Family Faith
COLORADO SPRINGS – Oct. 29, 2014 – In early October, hundreds of thousands of people worldwide saw the inaugural film in Dr. James Dobson’s BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY series during its simulcast world premiere.  
The Legacy project caps the decades-long career of America’s best-known family expert and encompasses eight films, eight books and eight study guides. More than 7,000 churches and other groups simulcast YOUR LEGACY, the first film in the series. The full series, books and guides are available now for individuals, families and church libraries at Christian retailers.
“This is the culmination of my life’s pursuit—helping parents build a family legacy of faith that will endure for generations,” Dr. Dobson said. “Despite what the media and popular culture claim, there is deep hunger for a family emphasis on faith and passing our values on to the next generation. The worldwide turnout for BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY shows it.”
Simulcast sites spanned 49 states and 21 countries. Dr. Dobson’s vital encouragement for families reached many areas that are especially challenging for faith messages to penetrate, including Malaysia, China and Afghanistan.
The centerpiece of BUILDING A FAMILY LEGACY is an eight-DVD series that combines four updated films from Dr. Dobson’s classic Focus on the Family videos, with four new films from Dr. Dobson and his son, Ryan.
The simulcast film, YOUR LEGACY, is a personal story of faith that traces Dr. Dobson’s own family history. His great-grandfather started daily prayers over a century ago that the next four generations would be Christians. 
Viewers raved about YOUR LEGACY
  • “Brought tears to my eyes to see Dr. Dobson sharing from his heart again, and it challenged all of us.”
  • "Younger parents at our church had never ‘met’ Dr. Dobson, and I was thrilled to share this national treasure with them!"
  • "I was so impressed! Wonderful presentation. It captured my attention all the way through. I went through quite a few tissues.”
Supporting the films are new books from Dr. Dobson and Ryan. Dr. Dobson’s Your Legacy tells his personal story and offers practical advice on building a legacy of faith. Wanting to Believe is the inspiring story of Ryan’s spiritual journey and a powerful account of how his parents’ faith became his own.  
The Legacy project also includes revised and updated versions of classic works from Dr. Dobson. Titles include best-selling books such as Dare to DisciplineThe Strong-Willed Child, Bringing Up Boys and Bringing Up Girls. These books are ready to introduce a new generation to Dr. Dobson’s advice and insight that has guided millions of parents around the world.
