This 12-week CCEF study helps individuals and small groups transform their relationships using principles from Timothy Lane and Paul David Tripp’s Relationships: A Mess Worth Making. Participants learn how to resolve conflicts, have difficult conversations, grant forgiveness, overlook weaknesses, celebrate strengths, and grow casual relationships into deep friendships.
Change and Your Relationships explores the important process of change within its primary context: our relationships. The curriculum provides twelve lessons, activities, homework discussion, and “Make It Real” life applications. The self-explanatory leader’s notes in the back give detailed directions for leading an individual or a small group through the study.
Paul David Tripp, MDiv, DMin, is the president of Paul David Tripp Ministries, a nonprofit organization, whose mission statement is "Connecting the transforming power of Jesus Christ to everyday life." Paul is a best-selling author of many books on Christian living, including How People Change, Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands, A Quest for More, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making, Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family, and New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional. He has been married for many years to Luella and they have four grown children.
"The gospel is all about reconciled relationships—first with God, then with one another. But living out the gospel by genuinely loving and living at peace with one another can be hard, sometimes painful, often messy work. In this study guide, Tim and Paul help us confront the messiness of relationships head on—and find the joy and life and hope that comes from really knowing and being known by others."
Bob Lepine, Cohost, FamilyLife Today
"Paul Tripp and Tim Lane have taken what was already incredibly profound, biblical, and helpful teaching in Relationships: A Mess Worth Making and have 'put legs on it.' This practical guide is going to deeply and positively affect the church and our call to walk together. I 'rise up and call them blessed.'"

"I am a stereotypical man: I think that I can figure things out on my own, and I loathe looking at the instruction booklet that comes with any new purchase. But I do like maps. I like to see where I'm at and where I'm going and the best way to get there. This study material is not an instruction booklet; it is a road map—a road map that can change your life. My wife testifies that it has been life-changing in our marriage. I'll let you guess which life has been most changed."
