Graduate Fellowship:

  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.

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 having an affair with a co-worker. At first, he was going to leave and now he told me he wants to stay and that he loves me and the children. What should I do?
From the way you worded your question it sounds like your husband is still having the affair. If that’s the case there are only two viable options. He can either choose to stop having the affair and deal with the situation in a Biblically-consistent way or he can leave. No negotiation. No discussion. No other options. In our more that 30 years of experience we can tell you that there is no such thing as working on a relationship while continuing an emotional or physical affair. It just doesn’t work.
