The Key to a Great Relationship

February 4, 2014
Siblings don’t always get along. But the sibling relationship can improve as brother s and sisters mature and grow in faith. Brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick reminisce about their childhood and the often comical spats they had growing up, and still sometimes have today.  They point to their faith in Christ as the glue that bonds them together and challenge parents to seek the Lord daily, and to teach their children to do the same.
