Publisher's Summary

"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love." (1 John 4:8)

Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship, revitalize a tired one, or rescue one gone awry? Do you yearn to grow closer to God and to further incorporate him and his teachings into your marriage? We all want lifetimes of love, support, and faith. But sometimes we need a little help.

Enter Dr. Sue Johnson, developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and "the best couple therapist in the world", according to best-selling relationship expert Dr. John Gottman. In Created for Connection, Dr. Johnson and Kenneth Sanderfer, a leading EFT practitioner in the Christian community, share Johnson's groundbreaking and remarkably successful program for creating stronger, more secure relationships not only between partners but between us and God.

The message of Created for Connection is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, or making grand romantic gestures. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship by recognizing that you are attached to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is on a parent and we are on the Heavenly Father for nurturing, soothing, and protection. The way to enhance or save our relationships with each other and with God is to be open, attuned, and responsive and to reestablish safe emotional connections. Filled with Bible verses, inspiring real-life stories, and guidance, Created for Connection will ensure a lifetime of love.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great book. Good performance.

There are audiobooks where women narrators perform several male voices that are distinctly different. This narration was in perfect tone for the content of this book. But the voices for all male characters and female characters were very monotonously the same. This could have been intensional but it became monotonous after a few chapters. Overall, it was a good performance, though.

Enlightening

I so enjoy this book. I found It to be very insightful mindful and made me reflect and think about how I communicate with my partner. It's helped me be able to communicate better to form a more lasting and enjoyable bond with my loved one.

Enough with the voices

The content was good but the reader used different voices for the husband and wife, which was rather annoying. The voice used for the husband had a tone that made him, ironically, sound like an idiot.
