Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.

  • Boundaries

    I recommend this book to everyone. I go to a Pia Mellody trained therapist. I have attended several boundary workshops so I found this boundary book for myself and my family. This book is truly a life and money saver. It helps the reader understand when to say "yes" and when to say "no". Our "yes" and Ħ°noĦħ should come from the heart with no resentment or guilt attached. It helps the reader to understand that when we interfere with the "w of sowing and reaping" we hinder our loved ones growth. Setting boundaries with loved ones is very difficult and this book helps tremendously..t

  • Everyone should read by the time they are 25!

    This book is a profoundly life-changing one. It is based on my Biblical Christian belief system, but I believe anyone would benefit greatly by these practical, easy to understand and read, life principles. A friend went to the store to get it upon my recommendation and read 19 pages before she left the parking lot! We are both rereading it right now.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? NOT THE SAME! I combed the internet for the same edition I had to buy for a friend. However, when I saw her book, it is not the image displayed here and is then not the same edition. If I had wanted the edition sent to her, I could have ordered that from the first site I went to!
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? Again, it was for a different edition of the book than the one that was shipped.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent (I guess - same issue - wrong edition of the book)

  • Clarifies Lifetime Struggles

    I first heard about this book on the Delilah radio show and took her advice in reading the book. Oh My Gosh! I understand more as to why Iżm having such a difficult time in life. And most of it started in childhood. The authors are able to bring clarity and simplicity to a complicate subject. I am now able to move into the direction of finding a solution to my frictions in life and not allow myself to get catch up in them. If you want to learn to love yourself more, I highly recommend this book. I am so impressed that I'm buying a book for a dear friend.

  • Ok, but I a bit boring

    I bought this book because it was highly recommended to me in a bible study class as a "must read" for parents. I guess I have pretty good boundaries because I found the information personally useless. I could see where it might be good for a few friends of mine. It was quite a bore to read, for me. If you are the type of person who can't say "No" to anyone and you tend to over-commit yourself, this might be useful, but for me, I'll probably sell it on an auction website! Have a great day!

  • This book is a must read!

    This book is a must read. I wish I had heard about it and read it years ago - it would have saved me years of allowing people to take advantage of my time, emotions, energy - well, everything! I feel so strongly about this book that I bought copies of it for friends who were in the same situation as I was. If you've ever wondered why it seems like your life is always in a state of chaos, why it seems that you are always picking up the pieces of someone else's life, why it seems like you do all the work and someone else gets all the credit then you must read this book. It has helped me take back control of my finances, my time, my emotions, and my work . It not only helps you take control of your present and future, it helps you learn to let go of your past - disappointments, hurts, scars, all of it - and move on.
