Building Blocks for Relationships is a study on how to foster relationships through reliance on Bible Scripture and exploration of the core values Jesus used to build relationships with others during his time on earth.

Gaspar Garcia, pastor of the Church of Divine Grace in Davie, Florida, has been involved in church leadership and Christian ministry for the past twenty-two years. Through his personal and professional experience, Garcia illustrates how the Bible's most basic principles like truth, honesty, integrity, and sincerity can be applied to a relationship and yield positive and fruitful results. Garcia provides the basic elements fundamental to every successful relationship; examines the challenges that Christians face in establishing and sustaining sound relationships; and reviews the qualities that constitute a healthy and vibrant relationship, as he provides specific ways to:

  • Relieve stress in your marriage
  • Contribute to the financial goals of your relationship
  • Enjoy talking with your children
  • Build proper expectations with new acquaintances

By applying Christian principles established thousands of years ago, anyone can begin to construct a sound foundation for improving relationships starting today!
