Take Your Life Back: How To Stop Letting The Past And Other People Control You by Stephen Arterburn and David Stoop
Have you ever felt that you’re not in control of your life? That you automatically overreact to people and circumstances instead of responding in ways that, in retrospect, you deem to be more appropriate? That past situations, present setbacks and ongoing habits affect you way more than you know they should?
If so, Stephen Arterburn (the founder and chairman of New Life Ministries) and David Stoop (the founder and director of the Center for Family Therapy in Newport Beach, CA) are here to help.
In their latest book, Take Your Life Back: How To Stop Letting The Past And Other People Control You, Arterburn and Stoop provide you with practical advice, time-tested tips and biblical guidance on how to move from living a reactive life to leading a responsive life.
Think of this book as self-help for the soul, but with all self-help/psychological aspects processed through the lens of Scripture to ensure alignment with the truth of God’s Word.
The book is filled with lots of helpful information, including Reactive Life Chapters on The Origins Of Reactive Living, Surviving Broken Attachments, and The Impact Of Trauma, and Responsive Life Chapters on Taking Your Life Back and Expanding Your Recovery Plan.
If the title of this book, Take Your Life Back, resonates with you, chances are there is something inside that you need to read and apply to your life. Don’t rush through your reading of this book – take the time you need to let the material sink in as you process and apply it to your life.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
