Relationship Matters
The Essential Blueprint to Building Strong Families & Fostering Healthy Relationships
by Mark Gordon

Are you at a loss to understand how your marriage has become so miserable, or do you wonder why your children are completely out of control? Relationship Matters is designed to help you and your family figure out what went wrong and to help create a healthy relational culture at home. Based on the metaphor of constructing a strong house, the content is presented in three sections. Building a Healthy Foundation discusses the five fundamental pillars of a healthy relationship. Building a Strong Framework teaches how to motivate family members, so they each flow in a common or shared direction. Building a Sturdy Roof introduces relational protection through fostering an understanding of authority and family roles. Work through the exercises, discuss your results with family members, and reflect on your own ways of acting and communicating. These activities all help build your family’s investment in each other and your understanding of yourself. Relationship Matters offers insight into your family dynamics and ways to improve them. Learn how to build trust equity. Build authentic relationships. Create a healthy family culture. Relationship Matters is a timely invitation and inspiring guide for what it means to live an empowered and purposeful life in relationship with others. Mark has outlined 5 critical pillars that provide a roadmap and strategic action plan for individuals wanting to create a family environment that is transformational in the way it supports its members to become healthy, content, competent and flourishing adults.
