CORE Family Resources is a ministry to and for families. Our purpose is to build strong families through life coaching, speaking, and writing. CORE is an acronym for Centered, Open, Relational, and Empowering.
Centered – what is at the center of your life? What ever is at the center of your life, effects everything. If you are Christ centered that means “Christ is in you.” cf Colossians 1:27-29 Being Christ centered is the opposite of being self-centered. Instead of thinking of ourselves, we think of others.
Open – Being open is related to being open to change or open minded. Are you open to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God? Hebrews 4:12 posits: “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
Relational – Being relational, when you are Centered and Open, is best exemplified by Matthew 22:37-39: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all of your soul, and mind………”And, love your neighbor as yourself.”
Empowering – Empowering others is what we are called to do in many areas of life including our family. As parents our goal is for our children to be empowered to live the life they were called to live.
Centered, Open, Relational, Empowering is the heart of CORE Family Resources.
