Stand for the Family

Valerie J. Steimle

Every so often there comes along a cause which writers feel so much passion they become a spokesperson for that cause. They promote it in their writings and on their blogs. Some writers will write about illnesses or the trials of their family members. Others will write about injustices in the world. My passion is about the family and the downward spiral of what the world will be like without the family as its nucleus.

Stand For The Family

A few years ago, one of my writer friends asked me if I would read a book to review.  She owns her own publishing company and she found an author with an incredible story.  Sharon Slater had been asked to attend a UN conference as a family advocate and walked into a meeting that attacked and undermined the family unit. This is her story and an eye-opening one at that.

If you are pro-family and know the importance of keeping the family together then this book will help you to understand why we as parents and grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, need to keep an eye on what is really going on at the UN.


Family Watch has identified the CEDAW treaty as one of the greatest threats to families in the United States because it seeks to establish by force of law “a change in the traditional role of men as well as the role of women in society and in the family.”

The CEDAWThe Senate Judiciary Subcommi treaty constitutes an assault on marriage, life, motherhood and religious and cultural values that support the family.

Subcommittee on Human Rights and the Law has scheduled a hearing on Thursday, November 18th on “Women's Rights Are Human Rights: U.S. Ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW)

 My book review:  Stand For the Family   by Sharon Slater

           Everyone who was born on this planet has lived in one kind of family or another.  The family is the basic unit of our society and after reading Sharon Slater’s book Stand for the Family, I am in fear that the family as we know it, will disintegrate starting at the international level.

            The story of Slater attending several UN conferences is scary and a great eye-opener to anyone who is concerned with the welfare of the family.  Her book takes you through many controversial topics of the day and answers many questions we as parents have been struggling with for the past decade.  Why is the world so obsessed with homosexuality, same-sex marriage, abortion, and assaulting motherhood? Mrs. Slater answers these questions and provides a way to join her team of pro-family advocates to safe-guard family rights for the future.

            This book is a must read for everyone concerned with the assault we have seen on the traditional family.  If our family life is weakened, then our country is weakened and if our country is weakened then we as Americans will be taken over by outside and inside forces.

From Mrs. Slater’s own words on the three main goals accomplished in writing this book.
“I felt compelled to make people aware of what is happening behind closed doors at the UN and in their own countries to undermine the family.
I wanted to equip legislators, policymakers, educators and responsible citizens with the knowledge and tools they need to defend the family, and third, it was designed to be a gathering tool to bring together good people throughout the world to stand for the family.”
Thanks to a short run that came off the press just hours before she left, Sharon was able to take some copies to the World Congress of Families in Amsterdam in August.
“I was pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly positive response to the book. People flocked to our booth and many stated that the book was sorely needed,” she says.

Read Stand for the Family by Sharon Slater and be informed.
