Strengthening Families

How do we strengthen our family relationships and why is it important?

Watch this week’s video to find out!

Our Virtual Chaplain says…

We all know families can be funny things. They can be places of love, acceptance and joy but can also be places of pain, rejection and anger. When families work well they are the best but that doesn’t happen by accident, it takes hard work and commitment, amongst other things. As parents we need to work hard at helping our families to be the best they can be.

The Bible says, “Every kingdom that fights against itself will be destroyed. And a family that fights against itself will break apart.” Sadly this is all too true.

In my house we have a plaque that says this:

In this house we do real

We do mistakes

We do I’m sorry

We do second chances

We do fun

We do forgiveness

We do really loud

We do family

We do love

There is no such thing as a perfect family but let’s commit to doing all we can to strengthen our families today.
