Christian Advice on Healthy Relationship Characteristics and Making Relationships Work

Someone once said that ministry and church life would be great if it weren’t for the people. But, because believers are people (who are stuck together for the rest of eternity), we might as well learn how to relate properly to each other here and now.

Help, I’m Stuck With These People for the Rest of Eternity! explores the Bible as a how-to-instruction manual for eternal relationships.

Within the covers of this book, you will:

  • Uncover the secret to offense-free relationships
  • Acquire insight to help identify, process, and resolve relationship problems
  • Read real-life stories designed to help you build healthier relationships
  • Receive practical advice for healing past wounds and injustices
  • Glean tips for improving communication skills
  • Learn proven techniques for making a church a safe place
  • Discover practical suggestions for encouraging others during tough times
  • Explore exercises to promote personal growth
  • Engage with application questions at the end of each chapter

Full of Christian advice on healthy relationship characteristics and making relationships work, this book will show you how to live peaceably with the nice, and the not-so-nice, folks in your life.

Here’s what you’ll gain from reading

Help, I’m Stuck With These People for the Rest of Eternity!

  • A firmer sense of identity, security, and worth, because you will have identified and given attention to the areas where you are lacking Jesus Christ as your foundation for life.
  • Less stress, because you’ll know how to process offenses.
  • More confidence, because you’ll understand what to do in difficult people situations.
  • Better interactions with authorities in your life, because you’ll understand the three types of authority and how to relate to each.
  • Stronger friendships, because you’ll understand the different levels of friendship and the responsibilities that come with each.
  • Greater compassion, because you’ll know how to help someone through the grieving process.
  • Richer church experiences, because you’ll recognize the four vital signs and practices of a healthy church.

I like a book that I can utilize in everyday life. Like a dictionary for relationships, ‘Help, I’m Stuck With These People for the Rest of Eternity’ is a user-friendly guidebook for any person seeking to care about and live peaceably with those loveable and the not-so-loveable. Buy it, give it, and keep it handy!

Designed for personal growth, Help, I’m Stuck With These People for the Rest of Eternity! is also excellent for discipleship, Bible study groups, leadership development, ministry training, and home groups.

 Once again, Sue Gaddis has done an excellent job in communicating what is still the most central theme of the New Testament epistles—loving one another. Where there’s little love, there’s much junk! Thank you, Sue, for driving home a crucial message for the whole body of Christ. Read this book!

“Because the kingdom of God is first relational, then functional, and thirdly doctrinal, Susan has touched the core. As go our families, so goes the church. It is vital that we gain the ability to resolve conflict and ‘walk together in agreement’ (Amos 3:3). This tool is critical—we have to get this ‘loving your brother’ thing down. Susan, through her many years of personal experience and gifted application, gives us a practical guide.” 

~Gary Goodell, Third Day Churches, Inc. 

“Susan’s book speaks into the primary issue of Christianity—relationships. Jesus’ prayer in John 17, plus the first and second commandments, are all relational. With divorce and church splits rampant in the church, we need help. Thank God, Susan gives us practical ways to be doers of the Word!” 

~Rick and Pam Wright, Pastors, The Gathering Place, North Hollywood, California

“The church needs this book! Susan Gaddis has done a masterful job at applying God’s Word to relationships using real-life examples to which everyone can relate. Her wisdom, exhortation, and sound counsel bring conviction to those genuinely seeking to be transformed into Christ’s image. Pastors and church leaders, in particular, will find biblical help to identify, process, and resolve relationship issues within the church family. Any church that applies what is in this book will truly become a light within its community.” 

~Rob and Mary Lee, Pastors, ACTS Christian Fellowship, Toronto, Canada 

“What a delight to read a refreshingly biblically based approach to relationships! Sue Gaddis has opened her life to the reader. With humble vulnerability, she shares insights gained from 28 years of ministry in the same church. Sue and her husband, Tom, have applied, honed, and mastered the principles they are sharing with us. Knowing their ministry, I unreservedly recommend this field manual to be utilized in your life and relationships.” 

~Steve Witmer, Senior Pastor, Bible Fellowship, Surrey, BC Canada
