Many books offer advice for good relationships. This book provides tools to use in developing and sustaining those good relationships. Written from a Christian perspective the principles are "simple and practical" (Ruth (Mrs Billy) Graham in the preface to the first edition). Revised and expanded more than 60% from the first edition which went out of print after 18 years, this book also serves as a text for the course of the same name. Dr Betty Coble Lawther is an author, counselor, conference speaker, Ministry Board Member, served as Director of Women's Ministries at the Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton for 14 years.
