An article recently crossed my desk about the 75-Year Harvard Study on Adult Development that has some powerful findings. This study started in 1938 to track the health of 738 men and has continued and expanded since then. Their goal was to study human health over the lifespan to understand what leads to a healthy and happy life.
Whether you’re a priest, a youth pastor, a parent, a coach, a mentor, a Sunday School teacher, or a volunteer chaperone, I know your passion is making a positive difference in the lives of our kids by helping make the Church their safest and happiest place to be.
Momentum is a beautiful thing when you’ve got it. But sometimes, it can feel like we’re just sitting in the water going nowhere. I’ve certainly felt like that.
Do you know one of those couples that seem to get closer every time they have a disagreement? You know, those folks who somehow make having difficult conversations seem desirable; because such conversations actually bring them into a better place once they’re over?
What is it about those couples that allow them to use conflict for their gain, and not their destruction?
The Faithtree Resources team has identified many reasons these couples navigate conflict so well. We think they’ll work for you too.
When Faithtree Resources began just one year ago (this week!), we had no idea God would use our little parish in Van Nuys, California and our small team of volunteers to reach people across the United States and in over a dozen countries through this work. People are accessing our materials from places like: China, Lebanon, Greece, Japan, Brazil, The Bahamas, Estonia, Canada, France. And every state in the U.S.
The one thing everybody has in common? They’re all passionate about learning to bring their faith to life. They want to know what they believe, understand why they believe it, and learn how to apply it to their daily life.
