    "Wonderful Guidance & Clarity for Healing Relationships"

    The directives are clear. It it explains why you are feeling hurt & the need to protect your heart. Then gives ideas on how to proceed in discussion in hopes of healing & growth in the relationship. I appreciate that it also asks me to examine my part in the problem, but let's you know what it healthy as far as what to allow and where to set a boundary.

    Story
    "VERY Christian oriented"
    What disappointed you about Beyond Boundaries?

    If one isn't a God fearing Christian with the associated belief systems the book is unbearable listening.


    What was most disappointing about John Townsend’s story?

    I couldn't finish the listen due to all of the Bible quotes. It may contain great information. However, I was overwhelmed by the chapter and verse.


    What didn’t you like about John Townsend’s performance?

    accent


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I wish I could get my money back, I'm glad it was on sale for only $5

    "Incredible book"

    This is an incredible book for anyone who has dealt with needing to put pretty intense boundaries around oneself to protect themselves from another person's actions when do you know to move forward how do you know that it safe to move forward in that relationship or being able to trust others to be able to move forward, how do you know that they're trustworthy? How do you know that it's time to move forward? I have found this book to be very helpful in answering those questions, I hope that you learn a lot about yourself and others as you read this book and move forward in your own personal growth in this season of your life.
