Personal Growth

 

In the Presence of Grief Helping Family Members Resolve Death Dying & Bereavement Issues

$35.00
Illuminating the impact of loss and grief on our psychological and emotional lives, this book provides vital guidance to ease painful transitions and facilitate healing. The author emphasizes that dealing with the death of a loved one involves more than picking up the pieces and moving on: rather, healing is an ongoing journey on which grief is a constant companion. For those in a supportive role, the focus is on helping the bereaved to navigate the grieving process and, ultimately, to reclaim joy as well as sadness as an integral part of life. Filled with personal narratives and examples, the book demonstrates effective ways to help survivors cope with commonly experienced issues, problems, and concerns.

Who are you? What defines you? What makes you, you?

In the past an individual's identity was more predictable than it is today. Life's big questions were basically settled before you were born: where you'd live, what you'd do, the type of person you'd marry, your basic beliefs, and so on. Today personal identity is a do-it-yourself project. Constructing a stable and satisfying sense of self is hard amidst relationship breakdowns, the pace of modern life, the rise of social media, multiple careers, social mobility, and so on. Ours is a day of identity angst.

Known by God is built on the observation that humans are inherently social beings; we know who we are in relation to others and by being known by them. If one of the universal desires of the self is to be known by others, being known by God as his children meets our deepest and lifelong need for recognition and gives us a secure identity. Rosner argues that rather than knowing ourselves, being known by God is the key to personal identity.

He explores three biblical angles on the question of personal identity: being made in the image of God, being known by God and being in Christ. The notion of sonship is at the center - God gives us our identity as a parent who knows his child. Being known by him as his child gives our fleeting lives significance, provokes in us needed humility, supplies cheering comfort when things go wrong, and offers clear moral direction for living.

Sale 20% off

A guide to stopping the lies and renewing your mind.

Psychologist Dr. Chris Thurman tells us the unvarnished truth about the most common lies we tell ourselves, how they damage our emotional and spiritual health, and what we can do to overcome them in this 25-lesson workbook based on the classic bestseller, The Lies We Believe.

The Lies We Believe Workbook is designed to help us recognize our faulty beliefs, internalize the truth that can set us free, and grow into more mature and passionate followers of Christ. As we work diligently on developing a more biblically accurate view of reality, we are transformed in the process. To put it differently, when we learn to think more like Christ we can be more like Christ.

On your own or with some friends, take the challenge to work out your mental salvation by pulling down toxic mental strongholds, building truthful strongholds in their place, and being transformed by the renewing of your mind. When we do this, we can experience the abundant life God intended for us to live.

Each lesson includes:

  • A self-assessment questionnaire to rate your faulty beliefs
  • Study of the biblical truth that leads to freedom
  • Key memory and meditation verses for renewing your mind
  • Prayer for contemplation and reflection

    A Study of both Old and New Testaments shows that Godly men and women who lived effective lives all had in common certain habits of thought and activity. First, they all had a personal encounter with God that changed their lives. They experienced a new beginning which gave them a new life as well as a new perspective on life. These same men and women went on to 'make history'. Their lives had impact for good and for God in varying ways and to varying degrees. Live by Design Not By Default is about the thought patterns and life habits of people like this. Jim Dunn argues that it is the active presence or absence of these thought patterns and habits that will either help or hinder us as we seek to become effective as Christians at every level of human experience. The key purpose of the book is to invite the reader to examine their faith and life from a fresh perspective with a view to developing their relationship with Jesus Christ and deepening their commitment to His Gospel.

    Cancer confronts us with our mortality. But cancer survivors find ourselves with a second chance for life. We grapple with profound questions: Why am I still here? How did I survive when others didn't? Where is God in all this? And how should I live differently now? Those who experience and survive cancer live in bonus time, a season of grace that can be both disorienting and wonderful. In this honest and hopeful account, two-time survivor Alec Hill helps readers recalibrate expectations, grapple with survivor's guilt, and steward the opportunities for new purpose and growth. As counterintuitive as it may seem, cancer can transform us emotionally and spiritually into better people. We are not the people we were before. Survivors and caregivers can discover how encountering death can bring us to a different kind of life.
