Building Healthy Families

There is so much pain and brokenness in the world.  You know it. I know it.  If you're paying attention at all, you have likely wept at the tragedies surging around us.  Disease, infidelity, addiction, greed, or just straight up neglect seem to be satan's first response in our modern world today.  There's no doubt in my mind that we need everything Jesus is offering us and more if we are going to survive all of this mess.  One of the great things the Word of God offers is wisdom and with some prayer and His blessing, some discernment to go along with it.  In this Building Healthy Families Series, I hope to talk about ways to build up and support our families in order to combat all of satan's attacks toward the contrary.

Physically.  Our family's health and physical circumstances can be a blessing or a burden.  What are some physical ways we can build up their lives and the whole of the family?  We'll talk about food, exercise, safety, and general provision.

Emotionally.  Whether or not dealing with emotions is a strength for you, you deal with your family's emotions every day.  Do you know what emotional neglect looks like?  We'll talk about how your feelings (or lack thereof) can be traumatic or life-giving to your family and why understanding anyone's feelings is a game changer in life.

Spiritually.  We are spiritual beings either being starved or fed.  Do you know the difference?  We'll talk about some common misconceptions about what it means to be spiritual and why it should matter to you.
