Building Healthy Families: “A successful marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day.” How true this quote, by Andre Maurois, is for us as Christians! We recognize that our relationship with our spouse is put to the test daily. Communication is necessary in order to keep the foundation and structure of our marriage strong. How do we do this? We turn to Christ in our marriages and know that without His help and guidance our success in marriage would surely not exist. Lutheran Family Service of Iowa ((515) 251-4900)
