The Need for Abiding Vigilance

This week, citizens throughout the nation will celebrate the 242nd birthday of the United States of America with barbecues, pool parties, fireworks and, hopefully, prayerful reflection on God’s blessings on the formation and sustaining of our republic.

Central to our celebration should be the affirmation of the Declaration of Independence. This simple document consisting of only 1458 words conveyed powerful Judeo-Christian ideals of government while at the same time rejecting the abuses of British authoritarianism.… Continue Reading

IFA Matching Challenge Take 2

Dear Pro-Family Friends,

For a second time this year, Illinois Family Action is being presented with a $20,000 matching challenge! These donors want to help Illinois Family ACTION raise much-needed funds to help us get the vote out and put key pro-family candidates across the finish line in the General Election on November 6th.

The mission of Illinois Family Action, in part, is to work on the political front to help get God-fearing men and women into the legislative branch, thereby preventing legislation like a taxpayer-funded abortion mandate from becoming law.… Continue Reading

UPDATE: Matching Challenge Extended!

Matching Challenge Deadline Extended to March 10th!

Year after year the anti-family, left-wing organizations devote massive amounts of time, energy and money to promote their agenda in our legislature, media and schools. Our values–the commonsense values of those in our state who believe in the importance of a mother and a father to a child, in the sanctity of human life, in the value of religious freedom–are often dismissed and ridiculed by political leftists.… Continue Reading

February Matching Challenge Update

I am glad to be able to share some good news with you regarding the $20,000 matching challenge I wrote about earlier this month. The response to this annual matching challenge has been slower than we had hoped, but we are making progress toward our goal of raising a total of $40,000 before the end of the month.

We still need to raise a little more than $14,000 over the next two days in order to realize the full matching challenge.… Continue Reading

February Matching Challenge for IFA

I am pleased to announce that in an effort to help Illinois Family ACTION raise $40,000 by the end of February, two generous donors have offered to match donations to IFI all the way up to $20,000! So between now and the end of this month, you can double the impact of your giving!

Last year, a handful of legislative votes stood between pro-family policies and further cultural decay in Springfield.… Continue Reading

Social Media Tools For Social Conservatives!

Written by Tami Jackson

In 2012, Barack Obama was running for a second term for President of the United States. The U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, had been attacked by Islamic terrorists. United States Ambassador Chris Stevens, IMO Sean Smith, and CIA Contractors and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were all killed in the attack.… Continue Reading

Higgins Responds to Reader’s Concerns

Written by David E. Smith

I recently asked Laurie Higgins, the cultural affairs writer for the Illinois Family Institute, to join me in a podcast. In this episode of Illinois Family Spotlight, we discuss Laurie’s satirical, sarcastic and sassy style of writing, which makes some people uncomfortable. Unfortunately, there are even some who go so far as to say that it is unbiblical or not Christ-like. … Continue Reading
