How to Deal with Relationship Vampires
Relationship advice on how to deal with difficult people.
Linn Winters, Landon MacDonald
Aug 11, 2019 to Sep 15, 2019
This sermon series gives us relationship advice about how to deal with the people who wear us out, relationship vampires, that just suck the life out of us. They make the same mistakes over and over, yet never learn. They ask for help when they've repeatedly created their own problems. It's a confusing topic because as followers of Jesus we are taught to help others, but there are times that even scripture teaches us that we need to set healthy boundaries.
