Event Details

We often think of the family as father, mother and children, but this is only one form of family. Life hasn’t dealt us all a typical nuclear family, and even the Bible shows us that there are many different kinds of families. This course will focus on the purpose of the family, rather than who is in the family or who forms the family. This course celebrates the healthy family as God’s vehicle to connect each of us to others. We will study the family as a link to the past, present and future, as well as the many forms of families. We’ll also discuss teaching a sense of right and wrong, traditions, education as the key to a better life, and the family as a unit of support. In addition, we’ll identify the signs of a dysfunctional family and give suggestions of healthy ways to handle problems that may arise in the family. It will not deal specifically with what may be wrong or unhealthy in your family (that’s something for family counseling), but will look at characteristics of healthy families and passages of scripture that can inform that understanding. In short, this course explores what the family unit should be and do for the individuals coming out of it. Healthy children can come out of any of the different forms of family, depending on their relationships with God. This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU. Price: $30.

***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at noon CDT on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
