Keeping your love on. It's a hard thing to do. Sometimes it's the hardest thing to do. But if you want to build healthy relationships with God and others, learning to keep your love on is non-negotiable. Adults and children alike thrive in healthy relationships where it is safe to love and be loved, to know and be known. Yet for many, relationships are anything but safe, loving, or intimate. They are defined by anxiety, manipulation, control, and conflict. The reason is that most people have never been trained to be powerful enough to keep their love on in the face of mistakes, pain, and fear. Keep Your Love On reveals the higher, Jesus-focused standard defined by mature love-love that stays 'on' no matter what. Danny Silk's practical examples and poignant stories will leave you with the power to draw healthy boundaries, communicate in love, and ultimately protect your connections so you can love against all odds. As a result, your relationships will be radically transformed for eternity. When you learn to keep your love on, you become like Jesus.

Genre: Religion

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, "Women in Ministry"? A. Nursery Worker B. Children's leader C. Pastor D. It's complicated If you are like most your answer would be, "It's complicated". Many believers are still confused about the proper place for women in the church. Powerful and Free is a call to address the structural message of inequality.It is not a theological treatise on the biblical case for female leaders (there are many excellent resources for this already). It is not a political program to implement some kind of affirmative action in our leadership teams, because that doesn't work. Rather, it is an appeal to the hearts of men and women to recognize the existence of the glass ceiling for women and to challenge themselves to align more fully with a Kingdom vision for gender-blind leadership in the Body and equal male-female partnership in the home.

Genre:

LOVE ON PURPOSE visits the most common relationship issues and how to work through them in love; from managing unrealistic expectations to improving communication. Coleman shares honest reflections on growth, past mistakes and important lessons in love through her journey of becoming a Christian. Her accounts of learning about God's love caused a transformation in her relationships with friends, family and her significant other. In the book she also challenges readers to do their own self-assessment through "Heart Checks" at the end of each chapter. Starting with a conversation she had with her now husband, the book begins with her realization that love is indeed a choice. Coleman says, "So many of us are searching for the fairytale not knowing what it really means to be in the trenches of love. I'll never forget talking to my husband when we were dating and hearing him say 'Love is a choice.' It was contrary to everything I thought I knew about love. For so long it was all about how love made you feel and not about the important decisions we make every day to believe the best, to be kind and to compromise. Love is a verb, we have to act on it to truly see it manifest "

Boundaries

Genre: Religion

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.

Living in Liberation

Author: Cristien Storm
Publisher: BookBaby
ISBN: 9781483566696
Release Date: 2009-01-23
Genre: Self-Help

What happens when a collection of artists, musicians, and activists grapple with the violent assault and murder of one of their friends? What happens when they refuse to give in to fear and focus their anger and pain on ways to imagine self-defense as a revolutionary tool for social justice? For over two decades, Cristien Storm has grappled with these questions as a self-defense instructor, writer, therapist, activist, survivor, partner, friend, and community member. As a co- founder and former Executive Director of Home Alive, an anti-violence organization that offers self-defense and boundary setting classes on a sliding scale formed in response to the brutal rape and murder of singer Mia Zapata, Cristien Storm developed self-defense programs that recognize the link between the concepts of self-defense and social change. Living in Liberation outlines this innovative and radical approach to self-defense that challenges those practicing boundary setting and self-care to see themselves not simply as individuals but also as local, national, and global community members. Living in Liberation argues that responses to violence can and should embody boundary setting, self-care, and self-defense skills that interrupt victim-blaming, fear-based approaches and locate healing within the social context of community. Living in Liberation roots boundary setting and self-care in larger visions of happier and healthier communities, all the while holding on to the complexities of individual safety and social justice. There are many books on boundaries. Most of them have good skills to share. What Living in Liberation offers that is unique is a simple, direct approach to boundaries and boundary setting that reflects the complexity of the world we live in while offering practical tools. This book looks deeply at how oppression (racism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, ableism, ageism) and privilege impact the context and interpersonal environments in which our boundary setting occurs. Living in Liberation looks beyond physical self-defense and individual safety to important issues connected with setting, maintaining, and negotiating personal boundaries within larger social context and makes links and connections between self-care, community care, social justice, healing from individual and collective trauma, and social change. Living in Liberation is a practical reference on how to set boundaries, limits and negotiate interpersonal needs and wants in a variety of contexts and conditions. The book offer readers suggestions on how to set boundaries, create self-care goals, identify and address challenges, and understand the complexity of intuition as part of self-defense. In addition, readers are invited to explore larger social context and form their own connections between self-care, community care, social justice, and social change. Storm also includes exercises culled from years of developing and facilitating anti-violence and boundary setting curricula as well as her experience working with trauma survivors as a mental health therapist. Living in Liberation is an important reference for readers looking for boundary setting skills as well as a practical resource for those who wish to dive deeper into considering self-care and social change. This book is for any one who has ever struggled with boundaries and everyone who wants to not only improve their relationships, but work to make a better world. The book is a great resource for support, discussion or study groups.

Life Is Never Mainly About Love and Marriage. So Learn to Live and Date for More. Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now. If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.
