Merle Jordan argues that many people spend their adult lives struggling to distinguish between the imperatives of divine authority and the deeply rooted psychological authority of family structures. Employing the wisdom of his experience as a pastoral psychologist as well as the insights of clinical researchers and therapists, Jordan offers ways to demythologize false absolutes and to refocus distorted maps of reality.

Redeemed Sexuality 12 Sessions for Healing & Transformation in Community

Sexual brokenness permeates our culture and has found its way into the church. Even though Christians are called to value and celebrate sexuality as sacred and good, it is often a source of fear, shame, or secret sin. But it doesn't have to be that way. Healthy sexuality concerns what we pursue, not just what we avoid, so Redeemed Sexuality invites emerging adults to seek sexual maturity and discipleship in the context of community. As we experience love, joy, and intimacy with God and others, sexual shame and sin lose their power. Integrating theology, psychology, and spiritual formation, participants engage the process of transformation by
  • practicing vulnerability
  • embracing their identity in Christ
  • learning healthy intimacy
  • Incorporating peer-to-peer leadership, this field-tested small group curriculum is suitable for use in both men's or women's groups. The process is neither linear nor easy, but change is possible because Christ is able. The only question is, Do you want to be healed?

    One third of adults in the United States some 71 million people are currently dieting to make positive changes in their health. The way we think determines the way we act. Thoughts become actions and actions become habits, so gaining control of our thoughts is the critical first step in making positive life changes. The Apostle Paul knew that when he urged us to bring all of our thoughts into captivity and to abandon the practice of conforming the way we think to the low level of the world around us. Instead, we should be transformed by the renewing of our minds! In ReThink Your Life, best-selling author and leadership mentor Stan Toler outlines the practical steps anyone can take to discover purpose, focus, decision-making, and improve their quality of life by renewing the mind. This helpful book will lead readers to genuine life change through the most basic Christian discipline renewing the mind.

    Many Christians have personal problems - some quite serious - that need various levels of help. A wide array of resources are available to provide that help, but in many instances we are unaware of them or don't know where to look for them. In Seeking Wise Counsel, Dr. David Stoop has given us a "clearing house" that sends us to the right sources for the assistance we need. The book orients us to making good use of all the resources at hand, including Scripture, published materials, discussions with pastors, sharing with friends, consulting professionals and more. It is an invaluable tool serving us with opportunities that lead to healthier personal lives.

    Is it possible for a person to experience dramatic and powerful transformation? Can an ordinary man or woman begin a season of forward movement and growth in areas that have stayed the same for many years? Can our dream of becoming more like Jesus and experiencing a life of health, growth, and joy become a reality? Not only is it possible, this is exactly what God wants to happen. In the physical world, this kind of change is called a seismic shift. A small movement in the crust of the earth can send out shockwaves that have radical and far-reaching effects, redefining an entire landscape. It is the same in the spiritual world. Small changes can transform our faith, hearts, relationships, personal habits, finances, and even the world in which we live. If we are willing to make small, simple, biblically inspired seismic shifts, God will enter the process and do amazing things, transforming our lives into ones of joy, victory, and purpose. Heart Shifts That Expand Your Faith Shifts That Bring Health and Rest Shifts That Build Dynamic and Lasting Relationships Shifts That Make You Rich Shifts That Change the World The book includes discussion questions and can be used in a six-week, church-wide campaign with personal learning, small group discussion, and weekly worship services.

    Up until fairly recently, men and women accepted sickness and suffering as inevitable features of life in this fallen world. They would have agreed with the words of D.A. Carson who said, 'All we have to do is to live long enough, and we will suffer'. However, in more recent times, wonderful medical advances together with a major change in outlook have led many to think not only that they now have the capacity to rid themselves of all sickness and suffering, but also that they have the right to a long and happy life. What are we to make of sickness and suffering? And how are we to respond to it? In 13 short Bible studies, which are suitable for both individual and group use, David Leyshon shows us from Scripture what the Christian's perspective on suffering ought to be.

    Christians should have the answers, shouldn't they? Depression affects many people both personally and through the ones we love. Here Zack Eswine draws from C.H Spurgeon, 'the Prince of Preachers' experience to encourage us. What Spurgeon found in his darkness can serve as a light in our own darkness. Zack Eskwine brings you here, not a self-help guide, rather 'a handwritten note of one who wishes you well.'

    Steps Into Gods Grace Spiritual Formation Through Gods Word & the 12 Steps of Recovery

    $10.00
    Are you confused, afraid or suffering? Do you feel burdened by guilt or shame over past or present failures? Do you struggle with painful life circumstances that you feel powerless to control? Do you wonder where God is and why He doesn't seem to help? Do you feel confused about the promise of abundant life and wonder why you're missing out? You are not alone. I began life with many hopes and dreams, yet over time I felt beaten and battered by life circumstances or my poor choices. Confused and overwhelmed, I forced myself to conform my outside to what was expected of me by trying to achieve greater accomplishments, acquire more things and perfect my image. Yet inside, despite all this effort, I was filled with sadness, emptiness, insecurity and loneliness. So began my quest to find hope and peace in my life. Trusting in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, studying the Bible, participating in 12 Step recovery programs and learning to listen and respond to the loving wisdom of the Holy Spirit caused significant changes in my life. I have personally experienced God's healing from shame and guilt of my past and freedom from the need for approval from others. Now that I live with a desperate dependence on God alone, I have peace I never had before. The journey was not easy. I encountered, and continue to encounter, many obstacles. But daily God convinces me that He is my only hope. That is why I'm inviting you to join me and enter into a similar transformational, discipleship journey with God. On this journey we will not just be students who learn more information, but disciples who, empowered by the Holy Spirit, learn the Truth, the Way and the Life. On the journey we will have our thinking challenged, our understanding expanded, our hearts opened and our wounds healed. We will become participants, not spectators, in God's plan and purpose. My prayer for you is that along the way, God will help you recover the truth of who you really are and who He is. I pray also that you will grow in your trust of Him as you come to know His goodness and unfailing love for you. As we take this journey together, I pray you will mysteriously and miraculously experience the healing power of God in your life. I pray you will enter into a love relationship with Him that is more amazing than you ever imagined or hoped for as He redeems, heals and restores you to your true identity and inheritance as His child living in His Kingdom of Grace.
