Glenn Stanton

Glenn T. Stanton is the director for Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs and a research fellow at the Institute of Marriage and Family in Ottawa. He debates and lectures extensively on the issues of gender, sexuality, marriage and parenting at universities and churches around the country. He served the George W. Bush administration for many years as a consultant on increasing fatherhood involvement in the Head Start program.

Stanton is the author of five books and a contributor to nine others, including "Why Marriage Matters: Reasons to Believe in Marriage in Postmodern Society", "My Crazy, Imperfect Christian Family" and "Marriage on Trial: The Case Against Same-Sex Marriage and Parenting", which was featured on C-SPAN BookTV.

His latest book, "The Ring Makes All the Difference", explains the latest research findings, as well as biblical wisdom, on why cohabitation is not a smart idea for couples and their children. Stanton's previous book, "Secure Daughters, Confident Sons: How Parents Guide Their Children Into Authentic Masculinity and Femininity", explored how mothers and fathers raise girls and boys to be strong, healthy women and men.

Stanton and his wife have five endlessly growing and amazing children, and they live in Colorado Springs, Colo.
