What if your overwhelming emotions hold the keys to your success?
Do you control your feelings or do your feelings control you? Many people allow guilt, anger, or self-criticism to dominate their inner lives and adversely affect their relationships. Maybe you’ve tried to deny these aspects of yourself that you don’t like. You might insist, “I need to get over it,” or “I’ve got to stop thinking that way.” But this approach rarely works. In fact, it usually makes things worse. You want to exemplify wholeness, but don’t always know how to bring calm to the turmoil within.
In Boundaries for Your Soul, Christian counselors Kimberly Miller and Alison Cook describe their unique approach for bringing peace to overwhelming emotions and harmony to your inner world.
"Is there a Spirit-led self within you that emanates love and can lead your inner and outer life? Is it possible to love your inner enemies in the same way that Jesus extolled you to love your outer ones? In this beautifully-written book, Cook and Miller not only show you how to do that but also make a strong case that doing so creates enormous inner transformation and peace, turning former enemies into valuable allies. I am thrilled with the way they have translated my work for a Christian audience and believe this book is an extremely important contribution to our culture’s healing."

“Personal growth requires that we create healthy boundaries for our internal world, just as we are to do in our interpersonal relationships. When the various parts of our soul are connected and integrated, the result is that we heal, relate and function at the highest levels. Alison Cook and Kimberly Miller have written a very helpful, engaging and practical book on how to accomplish this process."
