BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES Humility is hard to come by during an argument – especially when you’re sure you are right and your husband (or wife, or child, or parent, or neighbor…) is wrong. Here are 3 simple but powerful words that will help when conflict comes in a relationship: I am sorry. “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger”. Proverbs 15:1 Lutheran Family Service (Quad Cities Regional Office 563-359-0696 or LFSiowa.org)
