Relationships—what does it take to make sure they're healthy and happy?

Take a deep breath—we can get better together. Here are some tips + tricks on how to grow some of your relationships.

Dating

 Dating is complicated. It feels like a game where everyone seems to know the rules except you. Truth is, there are no rules—but there are things you can do to prepare for + improve your dating relationships. Because, if taken seriously, dating can set the stage for sharing life with someone you love…and learning more about yourself + them as you go.

Marriage

 
A long + happy marriage is #goals, but can feel out of reach when faced with reality: sharing life with someone else is messy, unpredictable, and just downright difficult. So, whether you've been married for 4 years or 40—dedication, perseverance, + fun are the name of the game.

Parenting


When clichés are accurate: "parenting brings some of the biggest challenges + joys," and "the days are long but the years are short." It might be hard to remember in the moment, but embracing the journey (and all the ups + downs) can make a big difference. So prioritize growing in your faith and take note of some helpful resources—we believe God has given you everything you need to be a great parent!
