I first came across the fantastic and extremely helpful Care in The Family in 2011 when Grace Community Church in Kempston, Bedford ran a series of 6 week courses during the summer . I chose a course which was based around marriage. The 6 weeks was centered around watching a DVD presented by Care in The Family’s founder Rob Parsons followed by discussions within our group ( around 8 if my memory serves me correct ). Rob is a man who engages his audience with down to earth advice, truths, and real life stories and encounters along with a dose of humor. I found it amazingly useful and went on to read some of his published works. His organisation offers help , advice and counselling on all aspects of the family life , and run regular seminars around the country.
Please take a look at their website – http://www.careforthefamily.org.uk/.
It may offer up some useful ideas or be able to put you in touch with someone who can help you or someone you know. Everyone needs to take family life seriously, the good parts and the ugly parts and remember we all need a little help and encouragement at times.
God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.
