All of us know that family is an incredible gift, and yet understand there are many risks that threaten the relationships within families. We exist to diminish those risks and build resilience into each family.
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.
