  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

When I was a kid, I didn’t have a good relationship with my mother. She was a cold and distant disciplinarian, and I didn’t feel like I could talk to her about anything. Now that I’m a mom of two kids, I don’t want to be like that. I want to be more of a friend to my kids than my mom was to me. How can I enforce the rules and still be a “cool” mom?
We commend your desire to be a great mom. It’s a joy to see moms and dads who take parenting seriously. You want your daughter to know she is loved and valued. You want to be understanding and provide a safe place for her to come and share her joys and fears and concerns. That’s one very important side of the parenting coin.
