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.

Debbie G4 Stars Out Of 5Good with help from the Holy SpiritAugust 4, 2017Debbie GQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4A 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.

Its a keeper for me, and I will read it over and over again.

Ask a Question▼▲
Q: Does this book have discussion questions?
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!
Yes - publishers can often change a cover, but if the ISBN matches it will be the same book.
