Welcome to the web site of Family Ministries for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America.

Family processes are at once the most challenging and gratifying in human experience. It is our hope and desire that our site will help you find whatever information you need in your quest to develop healthier family processes for yourself and for those you are in relationship with.

Despite the news dominating the airwaves each day about the economic downturn, crime, wars, acts of terrorism, and unexpected natural and unnatural disasters, our sincere desire is that you and your family will experience a blessed year.  We encourage you with the words of Jesus:  “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27.

For stronger and healthier relationships,

Claudio and Pamela Consuegra
Directors of Family Ministries
North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church

A Word For Your Family

We have heard it said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me,” but that is far from the truth.

Words do hurt, but words can also heal. Words can tear down, and words can build up. Words can create conflict, but words can also bring peace.

King Solomon wrote, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver” Proverbs 25:11 (ESV)

By clicking here, you can see and download 52 words that will encourage you, inspire you, and make you think. Common, everyday words, but with a biblical message. They are words we often use without a second thought, and words about which we must think carefully. You can share them with others or show them in your church.

A Word for Your Family is presented by Drs. Claudio and Pamela Consuegra, the Family Ministries Directors of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Watch each word, write it down, meditate on it, and use the lessons to strengthen your family life!
