These fast paced days are more stressful than ever. On the road there's more passive aggressive drivers and tailgaters than ever before, the world seems angry and very unsettled, sometimes that sense of unsettledness enters into the relationship. This is one of the best books I purchased coaching me as I make the changes now, today. Dr Eggerichs has great insight and Godly wisdom helping us to understand exactly HOW to communicate in a loving and respectful manner that with continuous life long ongoing daily practice will bring true and lasting positive change in the individual bringing loving tenderness back in return. We reap what we sow. We can begin to understand just how our words and actions negatively impact each other, ie just because a man is big and strong doesn't mean he doesn't have a tender and breakable heart, words matter and every action brings a similar reaction. In relationship, after time we become complacent and comfortable, old routines and bad habits begin to slip back in that can lead to bitterness and disrespect leading to harmful and hurtful words that harm. Prayer, new perspective and this book will help guide you back into seeing through a clearer lens and a more loving, peaceful interaction with the one you love as you see them in a brand new light returning that love and trust back, it really does make a huge difference and it takes continued life long practice. Humility and repentance are huge key factors. Competition and pride simply don't have any business between two people that love each other. Pride always goes before a fall...literally.

My additional recommendations are;

John Gottman - Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work - another Highly Recommended by Therapists - key note "the four horsemen" I just started the book, it's got some great tools to use regarding stonewalling and contempt in check.

Dianne Strausser- 10 Tips for great Communication - taught me how criticism deeply affects a relationship, what words to remove from my vocabulary like "but" and how to ask for what I need, the list goes on.

The quintessential hellfire and damnation sermon that reportedly caused mass conversions and repentances. This used to be (and in some places still is) taught as part of the US high school American literature curriculum. Perhaps more controversial today than in 1741!

Jesus Christ is coming back. It is certainly a Christian's greatest hope during these difficult times. The Bible warns us that the last days will be tumultuous - wars and rumors of wars will spread (Matthew 24:6). In our age, the world seems to be spinning out of control, creating fear, confusion, and uncertainty. In addition to violence, pestilence, and epidemics, the Bible predicts a great "falling away" from God in the end times. Bible teachers call that "the great apostasy".

certainly we are in or near the end of end times. society and many "Christians" have lost the fear of God, some Christians militantly twist squeeze and push down Scripture to fit their latest flesh not spirit driven cause. Jesus said they will hate you because they first hated me. The Apostasy church calls themselves tolerant and full of love until their reminded of God's unwavering Truth, anger always ensues. They inherently know the truth. God wrote His law on the hearts of all man... truth threatens experience of the flesh... because those who don't believe can't imagine what He has in store for those who loved Him and we're faithful to Him.... Some of today's church doesn't love people let alone care care about their souls. It's built upon the flesh, the love of money. God never promised an easy road, He said, take up you cross and follow Me. We must know Him through His Word ask Him to reveal His Truth through His Word. Pray for wisdom and discernment so the wolves are easily spotted of course outside of the obvious.... $67M jets and high-end homes cars etc purchased by those sending in checks and prayer requests for miracles who clearly don't know God's Word... if they studied God's word spending time with Him they'd know better... their letters of plea would not end up unread in dumpster heaps among thousands of others. Who or what does your pastor exalt? God's Word over and over warns of the wolves as well as the great falling away into doctrines of lies. Jesus said Wide are the gates of hell, narrow and difficult is the way to Him. Does you pastor preach that? or does he preach something like how have "your best life now". Paul, Timothy, Peter and the others appointed by Jesus were not flesh driven, their lives reflected humility, suffering and terrible persecution for preaching the truth, they preached it with love out of love for God, His truth and people. Never we're they "puffed up" as today's "preachers" feeding their ego and bank accounts on the unsuspecting souls that fail to read God's word for themselves. By not knowing God's word intimately, they allow themselves to be fooled. see Romans 11:21-31. Unlike we see in the lives of some church leaders today, they suffered much persecution for preaching Truth even to death. they took up their cross to spread the True Gospel. Do the lives of Rob Bell, Kenneth Copeland, Crefflo Dollar and others reflect the teachings or lives of the Jesus appointed appostles? Jesus said you will know them by their fruits. Our Psychology driven self first society has has merged with some churches and become a reflection of a Godless anything goes self centered angry mess intolerant of truth. God, Creator of this universe is loving, Holy and just.

In the Old Testament, God decried the fact that his people were perishing for lack of knowledge about him. The same seems to be occurring today. There is sharing, suggesting, plenty of storytelling, and lots of preaching to felt needs in modern pulpits. But the authoritative, expositional opening of the word of God is becoming scarcer all the time. Jesus told Peter, "Feed my sheep" (John 21:17).

I appreciate this book by the clear and concise way it depicts the way pastor's need to get back to preaching pure unadulterated Gospel..not psychology not a sales pitch to fill seats and certainly not new age that's seems to be slithering into the church. Just give me the whole Gospel. I'm not a pastor but I know what I want to hear... simply the truth, the good bad or ugly, I want to hear God heart what He has to say, through His word...word by word not an opinionated idea by newage seeker friendly SPIN by some slick act.

the author of this book has good advice I wish I followed. if you're in a situation, heed his warnings, because you don't know what you are dealing with.
My story is similar. We bought our small farm in Kansas..
on a dead end just prior to the housing crash, no worry's though as the home and property was a dream come true. Before we purchased our small acreage farm, as a precaution, we interviewed the neighbors since the property line was close withing 50 feet, however seperateted from us via mature shrubs on our side of the property line ensuring excellent privacy which we greatly desired and high on the list as a requirements, it was perfect. we moved into our new wooded sanctuary. The neighbor interview went well, they seemed ok, non psycho and the fact she had a psychology degree and social case worker seemed somehow that much better... naturally, with titles and degrees, theres an added sense of trust.. except for the fact she had angst because the previous neighbor built a barn and caused the taxes to rise then stated they had too many noisey animals. months later she showed up on my deck as I was sunbathing thinking I had complete privacy and now annoyed ...she just ignored any sense of boundaries & stated to me oh we're gonna be such great friends as she stood directly over me & suggested exchanging keys just as the last neighbors did..didn't happen with us. another day while out working in the yard I sensed I was being watched, I got this sick feeling a lot, it felt dark. I mentioned it to the neighbor later on. As I was talking, she tilted her head towards the other neighbor who's property we pass by to get to our home, she was suggesting its him watching me, stating "he's always interested in fresh meat" ... I was losing my sense of sanctuary... I decided to plant where there were bare areas both sides including hers. the plants on her side began to die. I thought it was the soil or something I was doing. I kept replacing the plants. I never could shake the sense I was being watched...and with all that privacy...
one day among several to come, it was discovered our horse had been let out creating a potentially dangerous situation. we could not figure out who would be twisted enough to do this. it turned out the previous owner had the same issue with their horses being let out while they were gone.

As I was out watering, my dog began to growel and ran over to our bushes...she was standing in my bushes watching me, all I could see we're her shoes as if she were standing behind a curtain.. creepy and crazy...it was her all along!!!. I yelled, "hey , we really need our privacy!" she yelled back we appreciate ours too!"??? what the! ??? as if I were watching her? another time I was watering in the new plants around dusk deep in thought ..as I was spraying, a figure moved..she was standing there 5 feet from me all that time and I didn't know it, I dropped the hose and ran inside the house.

I discovered she had been coming onto the property so I blocked her trail (on our property) with potted plants, they we're moved aside as if to say you won't keep me out. I then fenced it with chicken mesh plastic, the fence was sliced and plants were smashed to the ground. our horse was let out. cameras went up..nothing! then I fenced it with heavy gauge wire. I saw a psychologist to ask how we deal with this person...she stated keep your doors locked or she will come in your home...and do not speak to her....I could not help it when she (bb) asked why don't you talk to me anymore? I said do you really want to know? its because you watch me through the bushes and I think you let my horse out. turns out The smear campaign had already started just after we moved in... I was the irresponsible horse owner who's horse gets out all the time. this person thrived on upheaval and division. next thing I know as I'm out working in the yard bb and her husband are seemingly drunk and he's yelling you think I'm looking at you through the bushes!! he went on and on...crazy making circular statments.. and she chimes in and states she knows every time my husband leaves on his road bike. always watching... and then stated "you're paranoid! you think people are watching you through the bushes." .. she actually lied to her husband and spun her stalking on him. Then she stated they don't use power equipment to keep their yard up..that was nuts given they used the same as we did, rider mower, blower etc. Calling her on her crap did no good. the last disturbing thing, they started complaining our barn cat got in their garage and then he disappeared, I called and called for him ...the response was I was irritating her and then she stated he's not coming back that they found coyote poop with the cats grey fur. no one else in the neighborhood seemed to have a problem with her, her angst was me, she haller out in mocking if I was in the yard..oh hallelujah praise the Lord! I had mentioned my Christian faith after we moved in, I never pushed it on her. Towards the end of that 9 years they got more quiet. I ended up getting very sick and was bedridden most of the time for nearly 2 years before my husband was offered a job in another state. during the time this was going on for 9 years, I took a lot of pictures and downloaded them and didn't want to deal looking at them, one time I looked out my bedroom window and there she was standing there staring up..creepy. I grabbed my camera and started recording... I downloaded the pics and looked at them after we moved.
there's a book I recently purchased called people of the lie, I highly recommend it...because what I saw emerge from film was the reality of the evil I'd been dealing with. standing there she was unchanged but on film there was a black shroud around her on a sunny day...usually light reflects off someone in the sun. her eyes were black holes. Her ungodly red hair moved only to the top of her head and her sized increased. she had a way of looking at you, face tilted down looking through her scowling furrowed brows. one of the pics showed a demonic looking presence she looked much thinner and 10x the evil as she glared. This was a new camera, no other person's ended up morphed or contorted. oh and there was a pic of her pouring something on the new Laurel plant..it appeared she had been poisoning them...again heed the authors warnings..he's right.

From the author of the critically acclaimed bestseller, Scent of the Missing, comes a heartwarming and inspiring story that shows how dogs can be rescued and can rescue in return. For her first book, Susannah Charleson was praised for her unique insight into the kinship between humans and dogs, as revealed through canine search and rescue. In The Possibility Dogs Charleson chronicles her journey into the world of psychiatric-service and therapy dogs trained to serve the human mind, a journey that began as a personal one. After a particularly grisly search led to a struggle with PTSD, Charleson credits healing to her partnership with search dog Puzzle. Inspired by that experience and having met dogs formally trained to assist in such crises, Charleson learns to identify abandoned dogs with service potential, often plucking them from shelters at the last minute, and to train them for work beside hurting partners, to whom these second-chance dogs bring intelligence, comfort, and hope.

The impact of The Late Great Planet Earth cannot be overstated. This blockbuster offered Christians and non-Christians of the 1970s a wake-up call to events to come, and some already unfolding, that herald the return of Jesus Christ. The years since have confirmed Lindsey's insights into what biblical prophecy says about the times we live in: the rebirth of Israel, the threat of war in the Middle East, an increase in natural catastrophes, the revival of Satanism and witchcraft.
