Win-Win Arguments – MBFLP 203

It’s inevitable that we will have conflicts with the ones we love – the simple fact of fallen people living in a fallen world means accidents, misunderstandings, expectations – and yes, downright sin sometimes. When they happen, though, how do we turn the unavoidable conflict into something constructive? Can we argue in a way the honors God and leaves our relationship stronger? Is it all about the win, or is there a bigger goal in mind?  This week, we talk about choosing your battles carefully and aiming to fight so we both win!

When the Parent Child Relationship Cools…

We all have those moments – when we sense a distance or coolness from our child, when something has gone wrong in your relationship. It may be a young kid or an adult son or daughter, it may be in the middle of conflict or a gradual drift, but it’s important and you can lose sleep over it. This episode we talk about taking positive steps to mend or rebuild a breaking relationship, no matter who’s “at fault.”

Resolving Conflict in Marriage, Part 1

Israel and Brook Wayne, of Family Renewal, speak to the topic of conflict in marriage and give insights, ideas, and encouragement to greater oneness instead of division. Nagging, ridicule, selfishness, and conflict all tear at the fabric of closeness in our marriages, hindering us from living out the picture God wants our marriages to reflect. Learn how to lay aside the attitudes and beliefs that tear down marriage, and put in their place building blocks for a closer marriage. Look for Part 2 as well.

Actually, with our six sons, we’ve seen our share of hormonally-driven outbursts and rage, and we’ve found out that there are Biblically-sound ways to respond to these challenging days, and even turn them into times for discipleship. Tune in for a half hour that may make a difference in your family for years to come!
