Communication in the Midst of Conflict

Back to Growth Plan List

Because we are imperfect people living in an imperfect world, we will always have conflict. Conflict happens in every relationship -- with family members, friends, coworkers, spouses, etc. Marriage and family relationships suffer the most because these relationships are so close to us.

God doesn’t want us to live with conflict; He wants us to live with an attitude of love, forgiveness, and grace.

This is why we’ve gathered our best material on communication and conflict in this Growth Plan -- it’s important to know how to communicate and resolve conflict so we can mirror Christ’s love to others.
