This is an incredibly valuable book to strengthen and deepen all relationships in your life. Whether it's your spouse, family or friends - this book has the answers to creating long lasting and meaningful relationships. The second title, "30 days to grow and deepen your closet relationships" is right on target. I wish everyone would read this book and apply the principles the authors teach. The world would be a much better place.
This book is organized into four categories, corresponding with four weeks in a month. I suggest not rushing through it and taking the full thirty days to absorb the valuable information that can make all of your relationships so much more meaningful and fulfilling.
Week 1 is titled, "The Art of Being All There"
Daily readings discuss how to be all there: in the moment; on a deeper level; during conflict; no matter what; in tough times; and, before it's too late.
Week 2 is titled, "The Art of Acting Intentionally"
Daily readings discuss how to act intentionally: thinking ahead; stepping out; creating space; going beyond surface issues; getting unstuck; and, giving encouragement.
Week 3 is titled, "The Art of Risking Awkwardnesss"
Daily readings discuss how to risking awkwardness: of asking; of revealing your heart; of putting actions before feelings; of expressing anger; of making changes; and, of unity.
Week 4 is titled, "The Art of Letting Go"
Daily readings discuss how to let go: of hurt; of insecurity; of pride; of guilt; of selfishness; of unrealistic expectations; and, of shadows.
From real life examples and examples taken from the Bible, the authors clearly illustrate all of these principles. This is a must read for EVERYONE. I sincerely believe the world would be much better place - not to mention so much improvement in everyones' life, if everyone would read this book. Easy to read and understand, this is the book of the year!
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. This in no way influenced my review.
