MHS – Dr. Les Parrott: Fostering Genuine, Healthy Relationships through Family
As beings created in the image of a Trinitarian God, we are literally made for love and community. Intimacy with others can bring life and fulfillment, but it is also fraught with dysfunction and difficulty. Dr. Parrott offers hopeful advice in this fundamental area of life that can be so difficult, yet so rewarding. Often, children learn what healthy relationships look like from watching their parents and other influential adults. So cultivating deep relationships for your kids starts with having healthy relationships of your own. And of course, all of this starts by understanding the centrality of Christ in every area of life, including our relationships.
