Download and read online The Emotionally Healthy Woman in PDF and EPUB Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with her life. She felt like a single parent raising her four young daughters alone. She finally told her husband, “I quit,” and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her and her marriage for the better. In The Emotionally Healthy Woman,Geri provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This book is for every woman who thinks, “I can’t keep pretending everything is fine!” The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else’s life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life. When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you’re on the path not only to emotional health, but also to the true purpose of your life. "QUITTING WILL SET YOU FREE! Not a typical message heard in the church today, especially among 'nice, Christian women," but one that has been needed for years! By refusing to cling to a shell of pretension, the true freedom of our new lives in Christ is realized, and Geri shows us how. A fast, informed read, this book breaks down the walls of the false ideals we cling to in and shows us that by quitting these idols, we re-discover God's love. I was supposed to read this book. I needed to read this book. Thank you, Geri."

Download and read online Boundaries in PDF and EPUB Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

Download and read online The Tap in PDF and EPUB Renowned real-estate 'rock czar' Frank McKinney reveals the most important spiritual principle of his astronomical success. He explains how God has tapped him (and taps everyone) many times in life, answering prayers and presenting life-changing opportunities. This book is for those who don't feel they're succeeding at the level they desire in the business we're all in: the business of life. Whether you're seeking greater financial rewards or some other kind of uplift, this book reveals there's one solution: Learning to feel The Tap and then acting on it. It primes you to start thinking that the rewards of success aren't meant for you alone, regardless of whether those rewards are already in hand or coming soon. But the rewards will come with astonishing speed and size to those who act on the greater responsibility that comes with greater blessings. The Tap shows you the way. Inspired by the biblical passage, 'from those to whom much is entrusted, much will be expected,' The Tap promises readers that as they attune themselves to this enduring truth, they'll feel God's tap and experience breakthroughs beyond comprehension. McKinney isn't a preacher or man of the cloth; he's a businessman who's discovered that faithful stewardship is a prerequisite to receiving greater resources. In The Tap, McKinney shows how you, too, can enrich your life beyond what you might ever have imagined for yourself--if you learn how to listen and respond to The Tap. Why, then, haven't you always recognized your "Tap Moments"? The Tap answers this by leading you to find how you've been blessed with the special ability to succeed at some level, yet the rewards of your success aren't meant for you alone. You will learn that as you profit personally, you can choose to gain a greater awareness of the needs of others and enact the social responsibility that enduring success encourages you to pursue. In The Tap, McKinney references scripture and uses examples from daily living, as he helps you recognize these special "Tap" opportunities and gain the self-confidence to expand your world for more success, happiness and fulfillment.
