What People Think of Family Works

My wife & I received some very useful information regarding our communication with one another. We really looked at how much we were actually holding back, [hiding] our honest feelings of what hurts or irritates us…

“We sought out LOJ as a means to provide my son with a mentorship group that is both inline with our family values and could edify him as he grows into a faithful young man. Since getting involved I have seen much personal growth in my son.”

I’ve learned that it takes more than physical strength and looks to be a man. Lots of male adults think they are men, but yet, they don’t have the kind of characteristics that make them good fathers and husbands.

I am so grateful that FamilyWorks exists in our community to help support our family, our children and ultimately our community by offering training, programs and a social network. Thank you!
