Toxic Relationships: Finding the Path Forward
By Counselor and Community Educator Joy Forrest

Scripture describes love as patient and kind, not self-seeking or easily angered (1 Cor. 13:4-7), yet far too often our relationships with others are the exact opposite.

In fact, while we are often unwilling to admit it, many of us have developed some very destructive relational patterns. Mistreating others in order to get our way is not only missing God's definition of love, but in many cases it can be considered abusive.

Learn how to recognize toxic signs in your relationships and Biblical solutions to help overcome them.

There is no cost and everyone is welcome to attend. Free child care is provided for ages 10 and under.


About the Speaker

Joy Forrest has been an advocate for victims of domestic violence since 1997. She holds an M.A. in Biblical Counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and she held the position of Community Educator for Safe Space Domestic Violence Services in Louisburg, NC from 2000-2001. She has served as a biblical counselor in church settings since 2004. Her own experiences as a former victim of domestic abuse, along with her involvement with Safe Space and church counseling, caused her to see a major need for churches to become better equipped to help families affected by DV. In January 2015, she helped establish Called to Peace to promote domestic violence awareness, particularly within the faith community. (View full bio)
