Bart Johnson and Robyn Lively talk about parenting and their first film together: Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters (PureFlix’s first original film which released last week) is a Father-of-the-Bride-esque tale focusing on one father’s struggle to raise his three daughters and then to let them go. Based on the book by Dr. Meg Meeker (who has appeared on the Focus on the Family broadcast and whose book can be purchased here), the film demonstrates how a father can love, guide and protect his girls while still trusting God with their futures, allowing them to make their own decisions about their relationships and careers as they get older.

Bart Johnson (High School Musical) and Robyn Lively (The Karate Kid Part III), who play the lead couple in the film—and who just happen to be a couple in real life—sat down to talk with me about parenting, what they hope folks will take away from the film and what it was like to work together on set for the first time, after nearly 23 years of marriage.

Emily studied film and writing when she was in college. And when she isn’t being way too competitive while playing board games, she enjoys food, sleep, and geeking out with her fiancé indulging in their “nerdoms,” which is the collective fan cultures of everything they love, such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate and Lord of the Rings.

  1. -Am glad to see movies are still being made with values and showing how important faith and bibical values still are to families. Reminds me of my parents who although always wanted what was best for us also trusted us to follow bibical principles we were taught, not get sucked into worlds lies, and most importantly grow to be the God focused, hardworking, wise people they taught us to be. Will always be grateful for that…
