Author: Jeuel Pavitt Date Posted:11 September 2021
In this day and age when marriages are breaking down at an astonishing rate and both physical and mental abuse is rife in many relationships, many people are looking for answers and hope with regard to their situations.
In this great book by Drs. Hemfelt, Minirth and Meier you will discover that "Love is a Choice" and that when you discover who you are in Christ Jesus, you can then bring 100% of yourself to a relationship. You will discover the dangers of codependency and that it is possible to recover from it.
In a world that seems to be falling apart this book offers hope to those who may feel that there is no hope.
Description: These bestselling doctors 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.
