  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

I’ve been a mom for 10 years, and I’ve tried very hard to emphasize to my children the difference between right and wrong. However, I find myself getting discouraged because while they seem to listen to me I don’t see a lot of change in their behavior. How can I help my kids become doers and not just hearers?
An occupational hazard of being a parent is that you will experience generous amounts of discouragement. After more then 21 years of parenting we can tell you that, with God’s help, it can get better. In James 1:22-23 we’re exhorted to “not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” Sounds great, but what does that look like in real life? How do we as parents help our precious sons and daughters become doers and not just hearers? Instruction.
