“Growing Pains” and “Fireproof” star Kirk Cameron is traveling the nation to help people build stronger marriages and families.

“At the end of the day, I believe that the strength of a nation is built on the integrity of the home,” the 48-year-old actor said on Friday morning on “Fox & Friends.”

Cameron appeared on the Fox News morning program to promote his “Living Room Reset” tour, a speaking tour in which people are treated to personal testimonials, Christian music and Cameron’s own takes on how to have stronger and lasting bonds with others.

Family is an important aspect of Cameron’s life; he and his wife of 28 years, Chelsea Noble, have six children.

Cameron said one of the things he believes hurts personal relationships today is the notion that the government will take care of things — and that elected leaders can offer moral guidance, when Americans should be looking elsewhere.

“Our hope is in the power of God,” said Cameron.

He was asked about new controversial late-term abortion laws — and he could express only shock at what’s happening in the country.

“I sit back as a father of six kids and I wonder, how did we even get to this place in a nation like ours?” said Cameron.

He added, “It’s personal for me because my wife is an adopted child.”

Four of his children are also adopted.
