Never Ever Be the Same will empower you to look honestly at your motives and break free from the lies that fuel your sinful patterns. We try to figure out why we fail in our words and reactions and even pray for God's help; but before we know it, we've succumbed again to distrusting God and taking it out on other people.
But in Never Ever Be the Same, with its biblical principles, insightful stories, and helpful instruction, you will discover how to unearth the underlying causes of your sin and learn to trust God more for an inner transformation.

JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Choosing God's Living WaterOctober 19, 2015JeaniePhoenix, AZAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What an awesome scriptural toolbox for growing in a successful Christian life! Kathy Collard Miller and her husband, Larry Miller have co-authored Never, Ever Be the Same. One of the best summaries of what the reader will come to understand and grow through is: The Wound creates a Message of Wrong Beliefs and Distorted Images, resulting in a Vow, creating a Sinful Strategy, and when the Strategy is threatened we become Hooked. Basically, when we have negative reactions to similar situations, something/ someone from our past has Wounded us enough that we build a coping mechanism. Usually that is a Sinful Strategy that hurts us by keeping us from having an authentic walk with Jesus and hurts those who are witnesses, or recipients, of our behaviors.
Most of us have been hurt at one time or another, but not all of us have been able to live free of continually reacting to similar behaviors. The authors help the reader by means of scripture and personal examples to identify the reason we do what we do, and show how to let the Lord to heal us. What the authors have learned and share with us, is Repentance, Surrender, and the Process of Growth.
It is not a set of special formulas. Never, Ever Be the Same is what the Millers live every day after taking a sabbatical from ministry to meet with a soul-care provider and work on themselves. They spent countless hours studying, seeking God in prayer, and seeking His loving correction. They demonstrate the Biblical path to freedom to live a life of obedience and holiness before God. They will look at their distorted responses to situations for the rest of their lives. I believe the Lord has gifted them with a way of life that they share here, and I believe that this way of life, being according to Scripture, can help countless Christians.
For those of us who are addicted to any person or substance, or were abused or neglected, this is the gift of a God-pleasing way to understand our behaviors. As a veteran of twelve-step groups and one who has struggled with why I do what I do, I wish I had this book in hand several years ago! I could immediately identify with Sucking Mud from the Cistern of Ungodliness rather than the pure, living waters of the Holy Spirit, and knew this is a book the Lord wanted me to use. I studied several chapters, used some as a daily devotional, and will finish studying it because I believe it works. This reader is tired of going to the Lord with the same old laundry list of sins, and wants to pursue holiness rather than perceived happiness. Sometimes I now look for the motive and the initial Wound that I used to justify the Vow that resulted in the Strategy that I hoped would work to protect myself from something. Identify the Wrong Beliefs and Distorted Images, especially those that led me to run from the Lord and bury the childhood faith that would have sustained me had I understood how to seek the Lord consistently.
This study is a keeper, to be read, studied, re-read, and loaned to others. I highly recommend Never Ever be the Same to Christians who want to work through their challenges into a healthy, trusting walk with God and other people of faith, and to those in twelve step groups who want to know why they do what they do and how to stop doing them in a tested and tried scriptural approach to wholeness. It is absolutely worth the read, and the study.
With a grateful heart, I received a copy of this book through the For Readers Only group at The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own, and no monetary compensation was received for this review.
callieghCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A BOOK of ChangeJune 12, 2015callieghCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Never Ever Be the Same is a book that will help you to Never Ever Be the Same. It teaches us that we react to certain situations in certain ways for reasons that maybe we don't even understand Why? we do it. However, through using their own and others life experiences, the authors help us dive deeper within to find our answers. They then show us how to overcome this way of reacting and change how we do things for the better.
Through their stories and encouragement, one comes to understand that by leaving God out of our reasons and reactions that is when we have problems. But it is our fear, anger, or past experiences that propel us to do what we do every day. If we take the time to bring God back, we find that we can change how our actions are in the future.
Great read. I do plan to go back and re-read and really stop to think about the follow up questions at the end of each chapter. I received this book through Bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
RachelGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5InsightfulJune 8, 2015RachelGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Each chapter in this book brings a new idea to light. How can I change my life? How can I never ever be the same again. Kathy and Larry take us through each step of repentance, forgiveness and changing our hearts and lives.
Chapter by chapter we discover the steps to changing our lives. Each piece of the puzzle is brought together by first understanding who we are then understanding how to change our lives for the better. By first learning the reason for my sin I can then learn to change my thoughts and my heart to be a better person both spiritually and physically. I have enjoyed this book and am very pleased with the writing and the thought process of the writers. As with any book based on your spiritual life as a Christian I firmly recommend praying for a discerning spirit in reading and understanding the topics in the book.
This book was a very interesting and insightful read.

muffinHonea Path, SCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Never Ever Be the SameMay 22, 2015muffinHonea Path, SCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Never Ever Be the Same" is an excellent book. This is not one of your heavy, hard-to-read study books. The authors have written in such a way that it is very easy to read and apply to your life. There are also stories woven throughout the book to keep your attention.
This book centers around your motives and why sometimes we act in a sinful way. We always say we're going to change but that rarely happens. Larry and Kathy Miller show us how different experiences and ways we learned as a child could be making us act and react a certain way. They show us how we can change those life experiences into acting and reacting in a way that is pleasing to God.
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. This is a must-read to keep handy. I also plan on reading it more depth later on. I received this book from bookfun for my honest opinion.
