      Family is a precious gift from God, but it comes with many challenges. As pastors, it is important that we help God's people acknowledge their struggles, discover truths in Scripture to guide their way, and encourage them through the process of growing in grace. These resources are meant to help encourage your own prayer and reflection as you consider what it looks like to offer support to 1/5(1). Challenges Facing Families. Divorce is a trial that affects the entire family. Those affected by divorce can receive strength and comfort from the Lord’s promise: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest Find Church resources to strengthen marriage and family.

      When you think of challenges in family ministry, your first thoughts may surround logistical matters: There are not enough gold fish for the preschool, the flannel graph of Moses has been lost, or one of the speakers went out in the youth wing. While these are challenges that family ministries face, they are not the most pressing. What makes a church a family? For that matter what makes a family a family? It starts with these seven things: 1. Unconditional love. In a healthy family you are loved no matter what. Nothing you do can cause you to be cut out of your family. But in a church built on anything other than love, relationships hinge on theological agreement.

      When we come to faith in Christ, many of us hope that the practice of living out the faith will be a simple one. After all, the bottom line to Christian living is to fear God and keep His commandments (Ecc. ). However, since our sinful natures have to be acknowledged by us and renewed by the Holy Spirit, we must work to become separated unto God-to become holy. (The Responsibility of Parents to Their Children, pamphlet, Salt Lake City: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, n.d., p. 1.) While few human challenges are greater than that of being good parents, few opportunities offer greater potential for joy.
