Lead small groups through astounding growth with principles from the best-selling books How People Grow and Boundaries. No matter what need brings a group of people togetherfrom marriage enrichment to divorce recovery, from grief recovery to spiritual formationmembers are part of a small group because they want to grow. This book by psychologists Henry Cloud and John Townsend provides small-group leaders with valuable guidance and information on how they can help their groups to grow spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. With insights from their best-selling book How People Grow, Cloud and Townsend show how Gods plan for growth is made up of three key elements: grace plus truth plus time. When groups embrace those elements, they find Gods grace and forgiveness and learn how to handle their imperfections without shame as they model Gods love and support to one another. In addition to describing what makes small groups work, Leading Small Groups That Help People Grow explains the roles and responsibilities of both leaders and group members. Employing tenets from the book How People Grow, this book equips leaders to understand the ins and outs of how to promote growth, and using principles from their best-selling book Boundaries, they show how to identify and find solutions for common problems such as boredom, noncompliance, passivity, aggression, narcissism, spiritualization, over-neediness, over-giving, and nonstop talking.

It trained me in the "how-to's" of facilitating a small group. I re-read important chapters several times until I felt the concept conveyed would become second nature to me. I plan to teach group facilitation at my church this summer and plan on using this book!
