Break- Through~ Healthy VS Unhealthy Relationships

Dr. Tim Clinton, LPC, LMFT and Pat Springle tackles relationship difficulties  in his new book The Moment that Changes Everything Break Through When to Give In, How to Push Back.  The reader will gain insight on how not to be co-dependent to a partner's destructive patterns.  They will receive the tools to escape intimidation and control  and no longer succumb to abuse.  Real love is defined by Dr. Tim Clinton throughout the books pages.  His accolades include: '"President of the nearly 50,000-member American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and founder of Light University Online, which has over 160,000 students enrolled. He is also the professor of counseling and executive director of the Center for Counseling and Family Studies at Liberty University."'   Break -Through stands out from other relationship studies in that it offers spiritual support along with counseling advice.  The goal of the authors is offer hope to couples that relationships can work if both are willing to sacrifice and do the work but they don't condone staying in a troubled atmosphere.
The key is to know your boundaries and to set them in exchange for contentment.  I highly recommend this stellar workbook  to use as a reference to keep your relationship in balance.
 Break-Through is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and wherever books are sold.

Special Thank You to "Six White Ties" For Pampering This Mom

Six White Ties specializes in handmade soaps, salts and scrubs which they feature at their Etsy Shop. Etsy is my favorite online mall for everything hand created and vintage items. It's the place I go when I can afford free time or I would waste the day away filtering through hundreds of treasures. Recently I was the very fortunate recipient of Six White Ties Pamper Mom Giveaway. I was awarded an adorable gift box of 5 bar soaps in luscious scents that were wrapped so pretty in ribbon that I debated whether to open them or not. Hands Down, Six White Ties devote a lot of care and detail to their products. Shop owner, Jenifer Burleigh states, '"Glycerin soap is one of the most nourishing “habits” for your skin, pampering and cleansing at the same time. We add at minimum 2% grape seed oil to every bar. All ingredients are cosmetic grade, these bars are between 3.5 to 4 oz. They are hand cut and had poured so no two are the same."' Six White Ties have certainly made a believer out of me and I will be a fan for life. The soaps are of excellent quality and the gift boxes are an awesome bargain. Although a review was not required of me, I just had to share these delightful products! Six White Ties is a member of Handcrafted Soapmaker Guild, definitely a shop to bookmark and revisit.

Conquering Inner Demons

Kasey Van Norman focuses on a real problem that a lot of Christians suffer with, low self-esteem in her book NAMED BY GOD (Overcoming your past, transforming your present and embracing your future). Like many, she couldn't understand how God could love her. Tormented by her inner demons, she finds herself tossing back a bottle of Xanax to end it all. Her book shares how she learned to let the past go and to embrace the redemption that God has for us. For so many Christians, it is easy to speak about hope and forgiveness yet inwardly they struggle with self-acceptance. This book will make an impression on many others facing the same and I am thankful Kasey had the courage to relate her struggle. I can completely relate to this book as I went through similar struggles in my twenties and you can not know the true peace of God until you make peace with yourself. This book should be on every Christain counselors bookshelf. I highly recommend. It was my deep pleasure to review this book for Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

God Loves Broken People By Sheila Walsh

Sheila Walsh reinterates that noone that walks the face of the this Earth, does so unscathed. A concept that I have tried to share with my daughters while they were growing up. The glory of it all lies between the pages of her new book GOD LOVES BROKEN PEOPLE because the Lord offers us an alternative way to dealing with pain. Oft times, human beings our deaf to God's words because they are too busy with their fulfilled lives. It's unfortunate that most of us have to reach bottom before we look up to him. It is at our lowest times that, when our hearts are broken we seek out his solace and in so doing learn the greatest secrets to Faith, Hope and His Love. Sheila Walsh makes herself vulnerable by sharing her private struggles and ultimate intimacy with God in this amazing book. If most Christians are honest, they too, have similar experiences. I know that I, also, drew my closest to God when tragedy and loss struck my family. Many things we experience in life are really blessings in disguise and with God, we can make something positive out of the negative. All humans experience pain although different times and seasons than our own what is important is how we deal with these circumstances. GOD LOVES BROKEN PEOPLE will be an inspirational source for many and offers everyone a hope to hold on during their most difficult hours. I highly recommend this splendid resource and feel priviledged that I was able to obtain a copy of this book from Book Sneeze in exchange for my honest review.
