We’ve heard the horror stories and seen the movies about what a disaster meeting a boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s parents can be. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Our panel has plenty of thoughts and advice on best practices: determining the timing, the setting, what to say and not say — and how the relationship with your date’s family should play out moving forward.
Guests: Gary Thomas,
Author Gary Thomas explains the epiphany he had when friends pointed out the toxic people in his life. When he saw in Scripture how Jesus handled such relationships, he was able to free himself from unhealthy people. Gary explains how to identify toxic behavior in others (and even ourselves), what to do about it, helpful hints for dealing with toxicity in your own family, and how to set appropriate boundaries without compromising Christian love.
