We've all had that moment – that moment when we realize we've let down somebody we care about.
Our kids, our parents, our spouse.
It's a crushing moment, and it doesn't quickly fade.
You try to avoid them, but they inevitably happen. Over time, they colour our relationships, get in the way of our desire to be right with those closest to us.
How do we handle those moments once we're in them? And what do they say about us?
We unpack these questions and more as we continue Future Family at both of our campuses!
Future Family – Part 4 – All The Fixin's | Andy Stanley
All children – that's you and me – long for the approval of their parents . . . especially their fathers. It's a longing that never goes away. It gets buried or transferred to other relationships, but it's there. And we underestimate its power. Every parent wants to be approved by his or her child – to be a hero, to hear, “when I grow up I want to be just like you.” As that desire grows, so does a parent's insecurity.
Buried beneath the hurt, disappointment, distance, or silence is a desire to be connected to our children and our fathers. It lasts a lifetime.

Future Family – Part 3 – Common Cause | Andy Stanley
When it comes to family, the only thing we all have in common is conflict. Family conflict is like no other because when you win an argument in your family, you don't really win anything. The conflict is never fully resolved.What if there was a way to resolve family conflict by dealing with it at its source?
