I enjoyed this book & workbook. it has shown me the steps to take for improved speech & improved communications. I've learned about the power of navigation: take responsibility for your words, cause & effect: examine your heart, exchange: establish new patterns, the open gate: drop your defenses, construction: build others up, instruction: remain teachable, & return: enjoy the rewards & accept responsibility. The tools are excellent that we learn & can apply in all areas of life.
We used this book in an earlier edition that was formatted in a workbook style. The reader was able to write in comments, Scriptures and answers to thought provoking questions. We prefer the workbook format for counseling couples. The new edition is better summarized in each chapter, but we miss the space and ease for reader involvement from the earlier edition.
I did this book with 9 other ladies this spring. It was fantastic. We also used her videos to add extra insight and challenges to us.Every one of the ladies found it to be transforming and is planning to review it to digest the material even better.We all agreed it is a good book to keep as a reference for life.Now there is another group preparing to start. They became impressed and interested after watching us go through it.Thank you Mary! Your hard work, diligent scriptural study, and great visual illustrations have blessed us tremendously!
