Start Managing Your Relationships From With You in the Weeds
"Do you want to talk about it?" I uttered these words because I couldn't take it anymore. It was 11 pm. The lights were out. My wife was quietly hurt. I was silently seething. Didn't she know what going to this NBA game meant to me? Why can't she see the other sacrifices I'm making around the house? This tension didn’t feel good and needed to be resolved.
Does this sound familiar? You don’t need to be married to know that relationships don't always work the way you want them to. We all need guidance and perspective when there aren’t easy solutions.
With You in the Weeds launched its new series called "Managing Your Relationships" for two main reasons:
1. Relationships have more impact on you than anything else in life.
Because we are wired for relational connection, our brains are literally shaped by the interactions we have with others on a daily basis. God has baked this into our DNA by design, and we can’t avoid it.
2. Your relationships need work.
Every relationship is imperfect and flawed because sin entered God's creation and is here to stay. The result: hurt, miscommunication, confusion, abuse, betrayal, and conflict are all too common.
In this podcast series, With You in the Weeds co-hosts—John, Lynn, Shay, and Austin—discuss topics like resolving conflict, repairing broken trust, forgiving others, dealing with difficult people, and nurturing healthy friendships. As you listen, you will gain perspective and wisdom on how to manage your relationships. You’ll also feel empowered to take the next steps to cultivate important relationships in your life more faithfully and effectively.
So… "Do you want to talk about it?"
We plan to get deep in the relationship weeds, and we hope you’ll join us.
