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.

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

As I was dropping off some clean laundry in my son’s room recently, I found a package of condoms on the floor. What’s the best way to address this with him?
We applaud the fact that you are willing to discuss this with your son but before you say anything please consider these three words: delay, pray and weigh. Delay the temptation to react to what has to be a disappointing and discouraging situation. When we as parents allow our panic and fear to drive what we say the result is often a reaction that does more harm than good. The reacting response tends to build walls rather than bridges.
