About Relationships

HOW DO RELATIONSHIPS AFFECT YOU

  

As human beings, we are created for relationships from the moment of conception. From the moment of our birth, we form connections with other people for survival, nurture, and physical/emotional growth and well-being.  When these basic connections do not work properly, a life-long struggle ensues, leaving a person frustrated, angry and most of all unhappy with hardly any understanding of what went wrong or what needs to be changed in themselves or in their relationships with others.    Fortunately, our services focus on some of these relational struggles that are often a result of unhealthy family dynamics of the past.  At Voices of Truth, we offer hope and encouragement to those seeking to make changes in their lives.
