Publisher Description

Is your life out of control? Do people take advantage of you? Do you have trouble saying no? Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limitations. Have you ever found yourself wondering: * Can I set limits and still be a loving person? * What are my legitimate boundaries? * How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? * Why do I feel guilty when I consider setting boundaries? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend give you biblically based answers to these and other tough questions, showing you how to set healthy boundaries with parents, spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and even with yourself. You’ll see vital principles of boundaries at work as Drs. Cloud and Townsend take you through a day in the life of "Sherrie"--first as she lives with almost no boundaries, then as she begins to apply proper boundaries with others in her life.

A Blessing of a Book!

The word boundaries has been stressed to me by my doctor when analyzing the cause of my depression, anxiety and uneasiness. I had lived for 48 years under the control, manipulation and emotional abuse of my hard- to- please mother who, since my childhood, had only shown me disapproval and rejection. I couldn't get out from it. Until I prayed and sought the help of my doctor who insisted that my problem was that I had no boundaries and I lived to please others, especially my Mom. I was desperate, until one day, the book seemed to appear out of nowhere from a small Christian bookstore with the word that seemed to ring in my ears..." Boundaries"! I read the first few pages, then chapters, bought the book and couldn't stop reading it. I made it a workbook with notes on every page and recommended it to my friends. They bought the book and our bible study group would tackle it's subjects. It helped me through my most trying times and empowered me to "Say NO" and gradually extricate myself from the harrowing world of co- dependency and being controlled through various types of manipulations used by my family. God certainly used the book to help me change my thinking, perspective and attitude in life. It has been a journey I had ...and in my journey, the book has always been by my side. Thank you to the wonderful authors. You are a blessing!
