Why We Exist

WHY WE EXIST

We have a heartfelt desire to help families become everything that God wants them to be and we know that no matter what condition we find our lives in or where we are as families, God can do anything! Whether, as families we are dealing with strained or broken relationships, bitterness, resentment, anger, fear, physical challenges and addictions, financial pressures and debt, disfunctions of every kind; no matter what we are dealing with as individuals and families, GOD CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND YOUR FAMILY! We feel our purpose is glorifying God by:

 
"Building strong, healthy, Christ-Centered families by establishing Christ at the center of every home"

When we talk about families, we are talking about "EVERYONE". Whether a family is a two-parent family with children or without, a single-parent family, a "blended family" of parents from previous marriages with children, a single adult who is on their own; no matter what size, shape, color or nationality, we include everyone and we want to establish Christ at the center of every home and every family. Because we are so passionate about building strong...healthy...Christ-Centered families, we believe God has given a clear direction...a clear "process" that we call the "CHRIST-CENTERED FAMILY PATH". It consists of (4) clear steps we call "bases":
