Boundaries, by Dr. Henry Cloud &
Dr. John Townsend
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.
Necessary Endings, by Dr. Henry Cloud
In Necessary Endings, Dr. Cloud demonstrates that, when done well, "necessary endings" allow people to stop pain, foster growth, reach personal and business goals, and live better lives. When done poorly though, good opportunities are lost, and misery either remains or is repeated. In this new book, Dr. Cloud draws on years of experience as an executive coach and therapist and offers a mixture of advice and anecdotes to give reader the tools they need to begin pruning the bad and the broken from their lives so that the good may begin growing again.
