Power to Change – StudentsLife after university can be difficult for a number of reasons. If you’re a Christian, the change in routine, friendships, and community can put a severe damper on your faith. Here are three tips for refreshing your faith that can apply to more than just recent graduates. [P2C – Students]

 

The Life ProjectUnforgiveness can be destructive, causing bitterness and anger. While forgiving someone who has hurt us and never apologized isn’t easy, it leads to freedom and a great understanding of God’s forgiveness in our own lives. [The Life]

 

LeaderImpactPeer pressure, when kept in its proper perspective, can be constructive.” The problem comes in when your identity and self-esteem become dependent on living up to the expectations of your peers. Garth Jestley suggests a different place to find your identity. [LeaderImpact]

 

FamilyLifeIf you’re looking for some surefire ways to ruin a marriage, here are three to get you started. If you’re not, these are three things you should definitely avoid in your marriage. [FamilyLife]

 

One thing that can unexpectedly take a toll on your marriage is technology. Are cell phones and other devices quietly invading your home and distracting you from spending quality time with your family? [FamilyLife]

 

One technology that can cause issues is video games. It doesn’t have to be a sticking point — some marriages thrive with a mutual interest in video games and/or clear communication about their proper time and place — but for other couples it can be a serious issue. [FamilyLife]

 

For families navigating the world of video games with their kids, Dr. Kevin Schut gives some examples of family-friendly, engaging games and resources for parents. [FamilyLife]
