Let go of unhealthy relationships with the book that more than 850K people have trusted. Best-selling doctors, Hemfelt, Minirth, and Meier, walk you through their ten proven stages to recovery from codependency that results from external circumstances. Humans are susceptible to codependency because of our sinful tendency to use defense mechanisms to fool ourselves. In codependent relationships, deceitful games are played, and important Christian principles are often taken out of context and abused. God wants us to have healthy relationships with a balance between being dependent and independent. The doctors describe how the most effective means of overcoming codependent relationships is to establish or deepen a relationship with Christ Himself. They describe the causes of codependency, pointing out the factors that perpetuate it, and lead readers through their ten stages of recovery.

WHEN LOVE IS BY CHOICE INSTEAD OF CHANCE When Love Is By Choice Instead Of Chance takes a fresh look at relationships between lovers and spouses, and parents and children. We are shown the difference between the strength of making choices, and the weakness of leaving what we value up to chance. It encourages opening our hearts and minds to a fuller expression of potential for understanding, intimacy, caring, and love. It shows that taking relationship needs for granted is a sure way of promising that those needs may never be fulfilled. Author C. Anthony Taylor introduces us to constructive-acceptance, constructive-compromise, primary-relationship, primary-affection, affection-deficit, and the acronym S.E.L.F. Taylor also simplifies the meaning of self-love. There is a real need in society for a deeper respect and responsibility toward relationships. When Love Is By Choice Instead Of Chance offers us a reason to take a deeper look at who we ourselves and those we relate to are. It is, in the quintessential meaning of the word, dynamite, in a small package.

I Choose You Today features 31 scriptural principles that support marriage and help couples develop healthy biblically based behavior. Built on an introductory anecdotal story, each chapter has an inspirational takeaway of not only what to do, but how to begin applying the principles immediately. Thought provoking questions create talking points for couples to explore their own choices and experiences in each area serve to generate open dialogue of discovery.

Every saying ends with a conventional wisdom quote.
