  1. After scrolling through the hundred plus articles to choose from regarding relational wisdom. I was pleasantly surprised to see just how many different areas relational wisdom can be used. In fact I even found one about losing weight and healthy eating. Side note – I read two different articles today. The Lord used one specific word that was in both articles to speak to me today. Very thankful for that!! God is FAITHFUL!!

  2. I am an DMin student at Columbia International University and am working on my dissertation in the area of the impact of emotional intelligence on relationships among missionaries (God, others and self). I just took the Peace Keeper training at our mission headquarters (WorldVenture in Colorado) and was told about this website. I am excited to see the intersection of relationships in these three areas with the Biblical connection. It seems to me that this is the experience of living out grace in relationship with God, others and self.
