Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”

C. S. Lewis

The Reality and Hope of the Modern Family:


Family diagramNo matter how large or small, simple or complex, your family works as a system. From the outside, families are impacted by our rapid-paced, media- driven society. Never have we been more connected globally; yet felt so isolated in our homes.


On the inside, experiences from our own families of origin may block our ability to refocus with a fresh perspective. Instead, we get stuck in negative cycles of interacting. Navigating the stress from without and the challenges from within may create feelings of frustration, shame, or hopelessness.


Whether you are just starting a family, blending families, taking care of aging parents, or are an empty nester, unexpected events and transitions can take a toll. At LifeCare, we desire to help you to find balance. Learning healthy interactions, forgiving, and developing meaningful ways of connecting are just a few ways to build resilient families. We will also help you find resources through other agencies, support groups, and the Christian community to maintain strong families.
