We all want healthy, life-giving, encouraging, relationships in our lives. Relationships of mutual respect, grounded in compassion and care. Relationships built on love and integrity which give us the strength to live our lives to the fullest.
Courageous relationships give us support to be the leaders needed at work, at home, in the community, and even in our churches. Yet, too often we find ourselves in relationships carved out of fear where we are tentative in our commitments and based upon co-dependency where we seek to survive.
