Every person’s life begins in a family. It’s where we first learn to give and receive love. Family relationships are intricate, complex, and always evolving. No matter how much you know, there’s always something to learn because people grow, learn, and change all the time.
With this blog, we aim to look at various topics from the perspective of different family members, and to discuss issues close to the heart of family life. We’ll talk about issues that are intrinsically linked to family, ranging from communication and intimacy, to work and current affairs.
We want to champion strong families because families matter. Our hope is to see homes with a safe environment for children to grow up in, where lasting relationships between husband and wife, parent and child, brother and sister are lived out.
Families are beautiful and make life worthwhile, for while we may not have it altogether, together we have it all.
