Healthy Relationships

One of our greatest needs is relationships, and when they are unhealthy, our entire life is affected. Women face numerous challenges to healthy relationships. Yet, it is very possible in God’s design for women to live each day with healthy perspectives of themselves and others. Trying to do this alone is not how we were created. Cornerstone is offering a group for women to educate and equip them to live out the healthy relationships God desires for them. This group will equip women with:

  • Healthy identity and value of self
  • Healthy perspective on relationships
  • Healthy boundaries
  • Healthy understanding of the scope of intimacy
