Communication

Communication is key. It is something that will hold a family together or tare them apart. Sara Paddison said, "Being vulnerable doesn't have to be threatening. Just have the courage to be sincere, open and honest. This opens the door to deeper communication all around. It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life. Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us. These secrets are what make us sick or fearful. Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives."

Stress in the Family

All families have problems and they are all different. "Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing." --Jim Rohn. We need to work hard on our families, and work to grow together during tough times rather than the natural instinct to pull apart. If we do this, our families will more likely be successful.

Affair Prevention

Scott Gardner & Christian Greiner said, "Similar to most illnesses, infidelity is easier to prevent than to remedy. In addition to working to strengthen our marriages, we can prevent affairs by a) being on guard and b) being fiercely loyal." We know that Satan is constantly working on marriage and family, so we can never get lazy because he will win. We need to love our spouses and never let our eyes wonder. If we do this, we will never have to deal with the pain of infidelity.
