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.

CRE 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

My husband has been hitting me since we got married, but lately it’s gotten worse. I don’t see any way out, but I’m concerned for the safety of our children and me. I live in a small town, and I’m afraid of what the church will think if I leave him because he’s very well respected in our church and our town. I don’t know what to do…please help.
We have a saying when we work with couples in our marriage intensive program: the well being of the individual is always more important than the well-being of the marriage.
