True North offers biblical insight, personal stories, discussion questions, and compelling examples to encourage you to turn to God with every frustration in life. Authors Gary and Lisa Heim show you how to move from self-centered grumbling and grasping to Christ-centered grattitude and giving so you can embrak on a life-giving adventure of walking with God.
"In True North, counselors Gary and Lisa Heim do more than point us in the right direction. They invite us to join them in their own spiritual journey." -Martin DeHaan, President RBC Ministries
"True North is about proper orientation to God while living with other sinners in a cursed world; it's about understanding what happens in your heart, finding strength in God, and loving well. Bring an honest heart and mind to your reading of this book and you'll find good shepherding here." -Dr. Brian Webster, Associate Professor of Old Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"Gary and Lisa both call and enable us to orient our lives toward survival and success. True North charts a clear and compelling life trajectory and gives us something solid to cling to when the downturns in life confuse our emotions and disorient our instincts." -Dr. Joe Stowell, President, Cornerstone University
