Nurturing Healthy Relationships

It’s easy to identify what kills a relationship, but much harder to know what ingredients you need to nurture a healthy relationship. John, Lynn, and Austin explain and discuss the 4 Relationship Builders:

1. Practice a gentle start up, instead of criticism.

2. Build a culture of appreciation, instead of contempt.

3. Take ownership of your part in a conflict, instead of getting defensive.

4. Stay engaged, instead of stonewalling.

These aren’t pie in the sky sentiments, but instead are solidly researched and biblically based practices that have proven to build relationships.

Listen in if you want to begin, and continue, the hard but worthwhile work of building your relationships. When you do, over time you’ll see the fruit of creating Jesus’ kingdom here on earth as he calls us to be kind and tender-hearted towards each other.
