4word community, we are grateful to come to you each week with content that is helpful as you navigate the successes and challenges of life. As we continue to stay apprised of the impact of COVID-19, we want you to know that we are praying for you as you navigate each day! We are grateful during this time to be an army of intercessors praying for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of our friends, our families, and for our world. If you have specific prayer requests, please send those to Irrayna as she consolidates prayer requests for our Boards and staff to pray over each week. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9.

Conflict is an unavoidable part of life; we will all be in some kind of disagreement before we die. Maybe at work, maybe in a relationship, or maybe even at church. Lisa Adams, coach and leader of 4word: Saratoga Springs, talks about conflict and how you can try to avoid it with better communication.
