The Rhythm of Relationships
This book highlights personal stories blended with practical and biblical principles about relationships for a general reading audience. Over the course of time, life's experiences, circumstances, and situations happen! When they happen, it produces relational rhythms.
Relational rhythms impact emotions, communications, and decisions. Individuals decide how to appropriately respond to the expected and unexpected rhythms of relationships. These rhythms can produce harmony or reflect dissonance.
Meaningful relationships tend to be matters of the heart. Enduring relationships are built on love and are dismantled by indifference. A primary goal is to properly discern and assess the purpose for the relationship and also the type of rhythm it generates. Ideally, a healthy and harmonious relational rhythm should be built, cultivated, and preserved.
