  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

Whenever my husband talks to his family on the phone or in person, he tells them too many things. I have spoken to my husband about this and he says he understands my feelings, but he continues talking too much. What else can I do?
In Genesis 2:24 God said, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” According to the text and our professional experience, you can’t cleave until you leave. From what you say it sounds as if your husband hasn’t emotionally “left” his family-of-origin.
