Product Description

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, mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts, emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own.

Publisher's Description

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.

    When to say yes

    How to say no

    to take control of your life

    Where do I start with this book? It was excellent, let's start there. While, for the most part, I don't feel like my life is out of control, it was good to hear confirmation that sometimes saying no to something good is not bad. Even if we feel guilty, it's not wrong. That was probably a key piece for me.

    Another thing I really liked about the book was the section on boundaries with children. Allowing children to be able to say no without fearing a loss of their parent's love enables them to be better equipped to have good boundaries when they are older. This doesn't mean the child is allowed to run wild with no discipline, to me it means that my child is allowed to not want something without me threatening not to love them. I don't know if that makes sense or not, I'm still not sure if I fully understand all of how it works.

    But it does seem that a child who was controlled and manipulated and not given choices in their early years can become a controlled, manipulated doormat when they become older because to refuse to do what someone said meant they were going to be unloved or anger was going to be unleashed and so they just go with the flow. And this can lead to harmful circumstances. Okay, just read the book to fully grasp that.

    There's also a really good chapter on Boundaries and the Digital Age, not letting technology control you and being able to go offline for a few hours or days without going crazy and not being deathly afraid you are missing out on something.

    Another good chapter is on Boundaries and Yourself. Ways that we can be out of control of our own lives include food, money, task completion, time management, sexuality, and words. John and Henry give you ways of identifying a lack of boundaries and ways to establish boundaries with yourself.

    This was a very good book and I would especially recommend it to anyone who feels like their life is out of control and they feel powerless to change it. I feel that this book is very Biblically based, otherwise I would hesitate to recommend it.

    I received this book from Book Look Bloggers and was not required to write a positive review.

    Perfect book for the person who feels they have to "please everyone, make everyone happy, and put aside their own feelings and emotions".

    A few years ago a professing christian recommended this book to me because she discerned I needed help with setting boundaries. I read this book and really appreciated the scriptures and that they show the biblical principles behind what they teach in the book. We all need to learn how to set boundaries in our life and what love is -- that we are not called to be "doormats" for Christ. The greatest commandment is to love and we need God to give us understanding on what that means. With the help of the Holy Spirit and discernment, this book really helped me. I still need to go over it and reread it. I think it is a book that will be useful for more than one reading as you put it into practice. Above all we should pray and ask God to guide us in all things we read.

Q: Does this book have discussion questions?

A:

No, this book does not have discussion questions.

Q: Is this book same as mine? Sorry if this is a seemingly illiterate question, but my copy of this book has a different cover. I would like to lead a small group study and they would be getting their books/workbooks from here. The ISBN numbers are an exact match, as are the titles, does that make it safe to assume they are one in the same, with only different covers? Your help is greatly appreciated. May God bless you!

A:

Yes - publishers can often change a cover, but if the ISBN matches it will be the same book.
