The family is an extraordinary thing. Just thinking about it can evoke a wide range of emotions. Family is often the context of many of life’s greatest joys and fondest memories. It’s one of God’s greatest gifts! However, family can also be the setting for some of life’s greatest difficulties and disappointments.
Family is a tremendous blessing and it can also be a tremendous burden. The relationships within can be complicated…the dynamics complex. Marriage can be wonderful and it is also hard. Parenting is amazing and yet it can also be trying and humbling. In-laws can seem like out-laws, or they can be outstanding. It’s crazy and it’s wonderful but it’s safe to say that we all need help understanding and doing FAMILY well.
