We watch shows on how families interact, and we read magazines about celebrity family drama. But when it comes to our own families, we sometimes have no idea how to communicate or even maintain relationships with each other! So many families appear to have it all together, but behind closed doors, no one really talks. Husband and wife don’t sleep in the same room and parents have no idea what is going on in the lives of their children.
The truth is, we are all tired of not having a meaningful relationship with our spouse or kids. We are searching for something that will fix our broken family. No one wants to feel as if they are failing as a wife, husband, mother, or father. But, there is hope. There is a better way. And the times of being a “fake happy family” can be put in the past.
