Some of us are working through broken relationships, praying for restoration. Others of us sense underlying tension, desire increased peace and deeper emotional intimacy with a particular loved one but don’t quite know how to proceed. And still others of us simply want to grow and bring increased health into our most precious interactions. Regardless of where you are on that spectrum, we’re certain you’ll learn tools to live and love with intention and grace.
