About Shaping Families
Shaping Families was broadcast on numerous radio stations from January 2010 to January 2013. This website will continue to offer and maintain a wealth of material conveying faith-based hope on tough family issues. There are scores of original interviews available here with some well-known Christian authors, singers, and nationally (U.S./Canada) known persons, as well as dozens of interviews with ordinary persons, combed from numerous television documentaries that Third Way Media/MennoMedia produced in the last number of years.
