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.

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

My sweetheart was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy on one side. I'm searching for ways to let her know that, even without that “body part,” I'm in love with the real her. I want to be supportive and helpful without being offensive.
First of all we want to compliment you on your sensitivity, kindness, love and concern for you wife and your desire to support her during this time of loss. I (Carrie) remember when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. We made a trip home to Nebraska from our home in Denver to spend some time with her shortly after her surgery. As her daughter, it gripped my heart to hear her express through tears how she felt looking out what she saw as her now deformed body.
