Relationship Tool Kit
You’re a labor of love that requires unique tools, but the tools we reach for in relationships can either make or break us. If you’ve ever felt like your marriage could be stronger, your dating life healthier or maybe your friendships more meaningful, it's possible.
Can you raise your arms with heavy weights in hand? Can you walk with dumbbells trailing behind you? Of course you can but probably not without the constant reminder of the added burden with each step. That’s what it feels like when we choose unforgiveness. The tight grip we keep to whatever wronged us slowly makes us immovable. Do you know someone struggling to release a past hurt? Invite them to watch this video. Pastor Matt Brown will be closing the final week of the Relationship Toolkit series with an empowering message on the power of forgiveness.
Is Sexual Temptation A Big Deal?
Sex is everywhere. We’re bombarded with it on our way to work, on the news, during commercial breaks or even innocently (or intentionally) opening an email. It’s everywhere yet we never talk about it… especially at church. The truth is, sex affects us relationally and spiritually and we need to talk about it… especially at church. So, let’s get real. If you know someone struggling with the issue of sex or sexual temptation, share this sermon with them! Pastor Matt Brown will help us get honest about our issues and equip us to deal with something that affects us all: sex.
What Does A Little Lie Hurt?
“Don’t tell your Dad” and other small secrets we tell build walls against the ones we love and ultimately trap us in our own tales. Small lies may seem insignificant at the moment, but over time can dilute the truth and leave us with only a shade of the relationships we once had. If you know a friend struggling with being honest with themselves or others, watch this message! Pastor Matt Brown teaches us how to reach for better and more authentic tools this week.
What’s the Win In Competing?
A competitive spirit is a win for an athlete, but often times a major loss in relationships. Our hot pursuit for triumph can actually leave both parties lost in the dust of a broken relationship. Do you know someone struggling with always needing to have the last word? Pastor Matt gives us the winning tools to remove the tug-a-war in our relationships and be the better person. Learn how to lose so the ones you love can win.
Why Do You Escape?
The ways we choose to escape often become the things that entrap us most. They may feel like sweet freedom in the moment but can lead to permanent damage to ourselves and to the ones we love the most. Listen as Claude Hickman gives us tools for understanding and dealing with escapism. relationship-toolkit.com
Does Anger Really Hurt Relationships?
It builds nothing and we’ve all seen it. That Facebook post in all caps, that irate customer lashing out at his waiter or maybe you’ve even seen it in the mirror: anger. Anger is often the best way to destroy the very point we’re trying to make and ultimately the relationships we’re trying to build. Listen as Pastor Matt Brown hands us better tools for dealing with anger from both sides. relationship-toolkit.com
