February 27, 2014 -LIVING A RICHER LIFE: Children's Author and Illustrator Kristi and Dave Grimm

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:  Most would agree that a happy family is a healthy family. By healthy, we mean one that promotes the well-being of each individual family member by creating a sense of loving belongingness, by enabling access to resources both within and outside the family, by adapting to changing circumstances, and by encouraging open and honest communication amongst its members. However, healthy families don't just happen naturally; they are developed and nurtured over time. A healthy family has to learn how to deal with life's daily ups and downs as well as how to cope with the unexpected. This may best be accomplished by spending time together, talking, listening and reading about what it takes.
