What Does a Healthy Family Look Like?
What does a healthy family look like? What are the areas or domains that are involved in describing a healthy family?
Part of my new role at Mountair Christian Church involves family ministry and the oversight of our ministries for children, youth and families. My dream is that our church is known for offering excellent education opportunities for parents and families. Healthy families are important for the growth of the Gospel in a community like ours.
The first part of defining a healthy family is narrowing down the domains that describe a healthy family. In looking at different resources online, I’ve narrowed it down to six domains:
- Physical Safety
Am I missing an important domain for family health?
Once these domains are labeled, then I can move on to describing health within each of these domains and then what type of educational opportunities would be needed to bring about health within the family.
