  A relationship is like a pebble—when it hits the water it creates a ripple that has an impact way beyond where it entered. Research tells us that the greatest source of joy in life is healthy relationships and that the greatest source of frustration and pain is unhealthy relationships. Like the little pebble dropped in the water, the quality of our relationships ripple across our lives, the lives of those around and even impact future generations.

CHR exists to educate, encourage and equip individuals, couples, families, churches, colleges and corporations to experience healthy relationships. Liferelationships.com is a collection of unique resources to encourage healthy relationships ranging from articles to questions and answers, to seminars and workshops, to books to links to other excellent relational web sites.

Regardless of where you are in your important relationships know that you can enjoy stronger, healthier, more vital, vibrant and effective relationships—and we're here to help.

     
Question of the Day

My husband is a Vietnam veteran and since the terrorist attacks of September 11 he has had sleep problems and reoccurring nightmares of experiences in Nam. Why is this suddenly a problem?
When I (Gary) was in Manhattan a few days after the bombing I spoke with a friend whose grandfather, a survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor over 50 years ago, told him that since the terrorist attacks he was having nightmares of being on the ship and being bombed. For long time we’ve known that crisis can activate long dormant painful memories. With men their first response is to deny, repress, suppress or ignore the memories, in other words to fake like everything is fine. Many men have learned to keep their painful and scary feelings to themselves and pretend like there isn’t a problem. Unfortunately, that never helps.
