Family Feuds: How to Respond by Timothy Lane
About: Family Feuds.
Do you dread family get-togethers and try to avoid your extended family whenever you can? When you see your family, do you sometimes regret the way you talk and act? Why is it so hard to get along with the people we grew up with?
Childhood hurts, unrealistic expectations, and old patterns resurfacing are just some of the reasons that Timothy S. Lane shares for unresolved family feuds. But despite these challenges, you can learn to love your family. Change happens as you look honestly at your family and yourself, grow in understanding God's love and mercy for you, and reach out with love in concrete, practical ways.
