  • 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? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions showing us to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

If you are faithful through suffering, you will be surprised by God’s joy, comforted by His peace, and fulfilled with His purpose. Crushing will inspire you to have hope, even in your most difficult moments. If you trust in God and lean on Him during setbacks, He will lead you through.

  • Are you compelled to tell your side of the story?
    Do you fight thoughts of suspicion or distrust?
    Are you constantly rehearsing past hurts?
    Have you lost hope because of what someone did to you?

     The Bait of Satan exposes one of the most deceptive snares Satan uses to get believers out of the will of God--offense. This trap restrains countless Christians, severs relationships, and widens the gulfs between us. Jesus said, "It is impossible that no offenses should come” (Luke 17:1). Although you will encounter offense, you can choose how you will react.

  • The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. The enemy wants us to feel rejected . . . left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ’s powerful love. In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection—from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.  Lysa offers up biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit.
