Description

It feels rushed in many ways, including the fact that she's admittedly still dealing with a lot of the things that she's speaking as an expert on. Sometimes it seems like the number one goal of Christianity is to bend over backwards and do everything you can for others (even if they are rude, disrespectful, and it interferes with your own life). Receive therapeutic wisdom you can trust directly from Lysa’s Christian counselor Jim Cress, who weighs in throughout the book. While I understand that there might be times that personal boundaries need to be set and others might not understand why, I don't understand why the voices of (hopefully) wise and loving counsel wouldn't at least be considered.

The point of Good Boundaries and Goodbyes is to teach the reader that it is necessary to develop boundaries with one’s closest relationships.It feels like it's written to a very niche audience (wives struggling to draw boundaries in regard to their repeatedly unfaithful husbands), but marketed to a much broader audience.

Recognize when relationships become destructive and unsalvageable, allowing yourself to part ways without undue guilt.

Lysa TerKeurst is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the New York Times best-selling author of Univited, The Best Yes, Unglued, Made to Crave, and 18 other books. Lysa TerKeurst understands this dance with dysfunction and wants to be your insightful, compassionate friend who will teach you that it isn't unloving to set a boundary, and it isn't unchristian to say goodbye. This book was placed into my hands as my world as I knew it started to unravel and reality hit me smack in the face. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).

If we want to be a good spouse, friend, co-worker, daughter, sister, or neighbor, it’s not by being another person’s savior. It had such potential and if you can stomach being slammed for having reactions to abuse it might have some thoughts worth digging out, but I find enough concerning when abuse is involved that I can’t recommend.

If we believe that we can fully identify with any of these qualities and that it represents our "true self," then we would have no need for God and his grace. Overcome the frustrating cycle of ineffective boundary-setting with realistic scripts and practical strategies to help you communicate, keep, and implement healthier patterns. Nevertheless, a glance at the chapter titles instantly shows the reader what they can expect to learn from this book.

It has a clear concise message without over simplifying what can be a very complex issue of setting healthy boundaries. She has scripture to back up everything and as she says in her podcast doesn’t “tell you what to think, but gives you a lot to think about”.In comes across like verses were picked to support the author's claims, rather than using God's Word as the standard.
