This week, we power through the rest of Rich’s list of 12 thoughts for restoring family relationships.
And some of these critical relationship-saving skills never come up in a typical feel-good Sunday sermon.
Does the topic of being manipulative ever come up? What about standing your ground when others try to manipulate you?
No? How to (effectively) deal with passive aggression… does that come up a lot?
What about relationships (even churches!) that tell you to cut off friends and family?
How to deal with a parent when the relationship is fractured… and what to do if they don’t want to be part of the solution?
A lot of ground is covered in this episode. But no corners were cut in the process.
And unlike secular self-help gurus, this whole process is rooted and grounded in principles of biblical grace, with some explicit commandments of God thrown in for good measure.
A lot of people claim a message can ‘change your life’ … but if this message helps any of you navigate the salvaging of a relationship that’s been on the rocks?
Then it will have done exactly that.
Oh — what if the problem with your relationships keeps coming back to the guy in the mirror? This series may be more honest in helping you diagnose the problem than any friend that has to walk on eggshells around you. You might be the person this series helps most of all.

While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
