a matter of time: taking control of your life
Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Going to work, spending time with family, taking care of the house, helping out at the kids’ school, trying to find a few minutes for yourself… it’s overwhelming! Learn how one man found a way to take control of his life with an effective time management technique. You’ll also discover a principle for managing the various commitments in your own life.
now you're talking: practical ways to effectively manage conflict
One characteristic of healthy relationships is effective communication. However, communication breakdowns are often left undetected until conflicts arise. Because it’s often hard to understand the root causes of conflict, this booklet focuses on how life experiences shape communication patterns and personal conflict style. Communication patterns can change and become more effective if just one person involved makes healthy changes in their behavior. In this booklet you will discover Biblical resolutions for conflict and ways to build stronger relationships.
an ingrate's guide to contentment: 5 practices for a more content life - no matter who you are
Contentment in this world is an elusive thing. Even with our necessities met and a few perks thrown in for good measure, it can still feel like something's missing. The truth of the matter is there will always be a void if we tie our sense of inner peace to the fleeting things and nature of this world. Offering insight on some key "practices" to implement concerning contentment, the author shows how being content is very much tied to our perspective. Citing the apostle Paul's illuminating view on contentment as found in the book of Philippians, the author drills down to the Source of true peace and satisfaction in this life.
comebacks: how to get back up after life knocks you down
For those of us who have blown it or would like a "re-do," comebacks are high on the agenda. There's no shortage of things in this world that can "rock our boat" or "upset our applecart." Natural disasters, human crazies, financial perils, messed-up childhoods--any or all of these can put us down-- and keep us there, if we let them. There's good news though. Getting knocked down isn't getting knocked out. Whether it's a sucker punch or a shot from your blind side that dropped you to the ground, you can make a personal comeback.
REGRETS, REALITY, REStoRATION
Regrets: whose life is not plagued by at least a few of these nagging leftovers from the past? The things we regret doing--or not doing, as the case may be--can wear us down, reshaping our lives and our sense of self, in the process. Left unattended, regrets erode our self-esteem, our willingness to press on, even our ability to think clearly.
