Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

This groundbreaking book from the best-selling authors of Getting the Love You Want and coauthors of Giving the Love that Heals is the first to address the biggest unexplored issue facing couples today: Most of us are better at giving love than accepting it. We don't realize all the ways that our resistance to appreciation, praise, compliments, and accepting help from others hurts us and cripples our relationships. Many partners learn how to give love, but many more undermine their relationships by for-getting something that is equally important -- learning to receive it. According to the authors, the root of the problem is the self-rejection that began in childhood, when our parents and caretakers unintentionally failed to nurture or directly rejected traits, characteristics, or im-pulses when we were children. We end up rejecting in ourselves whatever our caretakers ignored or rejected in the course of our childhoods. When we become adults, this makes it impossible to let in the love we want and need, even when our partners offer it. As a result, we dismiss compliments, minimize gestures of affection, and create obstacles to true intimacy. In this book, Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, co-creators of Imago Relation-ship Therapy, offer a definitive guide to breaking the shackles of self-rejection and embracing the love our partners offer. Receiving Love is a very personal book for Drs. Hendrix and Hunt, and much of their own journey is the inspiration for it. Drawing on their renowned expertise, the wide clinical experience of hundreds of Imago therapists, and their own personal experience, the authors are able to offer detailed guidance on how to conquer the problems that come from self-rejection and embrace the gifts that are abundant in every person's life, if only we knew how to accept them. With its groundbreaking theory, challenging processes, and inspiring examples, this book holds the key to loving relationships that last.

In Loving Bravely, psychologist, professor and relationship expert Alexandra H. Solomon introduces the idea of relational self-awareness, encouraging you to explore your personal history to gain an understanding of your own relational patterns, as well as your strengths and weaknesses in relationships. By doing so, you’ll learn what relationships actually require, beyond the fairytale notions of romance. And by maintaining a steady but gentle focus on yourself, you’ll build the best possible foundation for making a loving connection. By understanding your past relationship experiences, cultivating a strong sense of self-awareness, and determining what it is you really want in a romantic partner—you’ll be ready to find the healthy, lasting love your heart desires.

Are you ready to move from insecure to God secure? From regret riddled to better-because-of-it? From afraid to die to ready to fly? Today, find freedom in God’s grace.

When asked, “Do you believe in grace?” who could say no? Bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado helps us dive deeper into what it means to be changed by grace. God’s grace has a drenching about it.

In this book, you will learn: Grace is everything Jesus You belong to Jesus Jesus lives in you You will increasingly grow more like Jesus There is nothing you can do to get grace—grace gets you Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off. Have you been shaped, emboldened, and softened by grace? Let’s make certain grace gets you.

Explanation of the Book:

"Own that Guy in 60 days" is quite unlike any of the dating self-help books currently on the market. It offers a fresh new perspective on the age old problem of dating. Rather than being written by "experts by training" who shroud their advice in complex dating and psychological theories, Blake Lavak has written an informative book from the unique position of an "expert by experience." This subtle change in author position, results in a potent and compelling book which is based on his own dating experiences, observations and interpretations. Blake captures the attention of the reader from the start, by writing in an honest, open and humorous way about his dating experiences and observations. He presents a book which is thought provoking, stimulating and motivating. He shares the dating strategies and methods which have been tried and tested by women throughout the ages and brings them to life through four women he considers to be skilled at the dating game. The book challenges prevailing dating advice, which suggests that women take a passive, rather than active, approach to dating. In his book, Blake directly addresses the modern day women's basic confusion which arises from mixed social messages regarding feminism and masculinity. Modern women are encouraged to be masculine in business which equates to being bold, brave and direct, and feminine in their romantic life which equates to being passive, docile, amenable and patient. Blake empowers women to have the confidence to use all of their strengths through interactions containing both feminine and masculine traits, to ultimately get and keep the man of their dreams. In a novel approach, Blake presents both the successes and misfortunes associated with employing the dating techniques he describes. This allows the reader to decide for themselves how they may adapt and employ the techniques. Blake suggests that women who are successful are bold, but that they are simultaneously subtle and thoughtful in how they do it. Some of the techniques Blake describes may appear shocking and provocative, but the psychological and emotional impact they have on men are real, powerful and long lasting. If practiced, the principles contained within his book will encourage you to proactively engage and connect with the dating process differently. If you are unsatisfied with your current dating experiences and achievements, and want to have a dating experience which ends up with the results you want this is the book for you.
