Do tensions and day-to-day frustrations result in stressed interactions with your loved ones? Anger is an emotion we all can relate to. But anger does not have to be an uncontrolled, negative emotion. In Overcoming Emotions That Destroy, authors Chip Ingram and Dr. Becca Johnson offer encouragement and advice on how to identify your own anger profile---as either a spewer, leaker, or stuffer---and show you how to harness that anger so you can grow personally, relationally and spiritually.
Well-known teacher and speaker Chip Ingram teams up with psychologist and author Dr. Becca Johnson in this encouraging and practical book, showing how many emotions lead to anger, and many emotions follow from it. Their message is clear: as we deal with our anger, we deal with the primary cause for all emotions that destroy.
Ingram and Johnson help readers identify whether they are spewers, leakers, or stuffers. Readers also learn the difference between good and bad anger, how to gain control of their anger, and how to direct it toward constructive ends. The authors cover solid biblical principles as well as the psychological aspects of our emotions, showing readers how they can actually be constructive tools used by God to transform lives and relationships. Counselors, pastors, and individual Christians will find this book a no-nonsense tool for handling destructive emotions in a healthy way. Now available in trade paper.
