As Christians we are committed to loving those who are in our lives. But what about liking them? This series moves us beyond a white-knuckled commitment to hang in there with our loved ones, to discovering how to really like them.
Like Your Mate
When we change our behavior, our mate's may change too.

Like Your Kids

Like Your Family
if we trust God's purposes, we can find his work in the most unlikely people.
