The Charm of Confrontation: The Life-Changing Benefits of Being Frank

The Charm of Confrontation: The Life-Changing Benefits of Being Frank

Linda Kuriloff

In today’s cyber-connected world, a critic can attack someone without ever meeting face-to-face. This phenomenon is creating a generation who lack the ability to civilly confront a person with whom they disagree.

The Charm of Confrontation shows how mastering the skill of confrontation–which is simply a situation of opposing parties–can open doors to your success in relationships and your career. Different than most self-help books, The Charm of Confrontation uses my spiritual journey and background in theater to give you tools as a framework for your confrontations. And you don’t have to be an actor or a Christian to use these tools. Anyone who wants to get better at confrontation can use them!

If you’ve ever had a charm (i.e. lucky penny, etc.) that seemed to bring good things your way, then you know how much you trusted it and had to have it with you! Believe it or not, that’s the way a well-executed confrontation can be. It can actually be what opens the doors to higher quality relationships in your personal life and your career.

In The Charm of Confrontation I’ll give you the keys to unlock your personal style of dealing with verbal aggressions that scare you. Following me on this path to learn the charm of confrontation, you will earn the respect of family, friends, and coworkers. Even people who don’t know you well will admire your straightforwardness.

If there’s anyone in your life who thinks you exist to be pushed around (or just not listened to), I urge you to make it a priority to learn the skills to restore balance to your relationships. Don’t wait! Being easy-going costs you money, time, and emotional stress. Life’s too short and self-assertion is charismatic!

In this book, you can choose to read at a slower pace taking time to consider the dense concepts highlighted in the real life stories or you can skip right to the Practical Advice and be done in one day. After reading it, you can immediately start building your reputation as an amicably forthright person who speaks their mind. Then watch how success finds you!

Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life

Shauna Niequist

Cold Tangerines is a collection of stories that celebrate the extraordinary moments hidden in our everyday lives.

Cold Tangerines offers bright and varied glimpses of hope and redemption, in and among the heartbreak And boredom and broken glass.

Love Idol: Letting Go of Your Need for Approval–and Seeing Yourself through God’s Eyes

Jennifer Dukes Lee

Packing Light: Thoughts on Living Life with Less Baggage

Packing Light: Thoughts on Living Life with Less Baggage

Allison Fallon

Carrying baggage you don’t need?

When I was in college, I figured my life would come together around graduation. I’d meet a guy, have a beautiful wedding, and we’d buy a nice little house—not necessarily with a picket fence, but with whatever kind of fence we wanted. Whatever we decided, I would be happy.

When I got out of college and my life didn’t look like that, I floundered, trying to get the life I had always dreamed of through career, travel, and relationships. But none of them satisfied me as I hoped. Like many twentysomethings, I tried to discover the life of my dreams, but instead I just kept accumulating baggage—school loans, electronics I couldn’t afford, hurt from broken relationships, and unmet expectations for what life was “supposed to be” like.

Just when I had given up all hope of finding the “life I’d always dreamed about,” I decided to take a trip to all fifty states . . . because when you go on a trip, you can’t take your baggage. What I found was that “packing light” wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

This is the story of my trip and learning to live life with less baggage.

The Truth About Forgiveness

The Truth About Forgiveness

John F. MacArthur

“The greatest measuring rod of love in the life of a Christian may be forgiveness, because God showed His love to us in terms of forgiveness.” ?John MacArthur

Does anyone really want to forgive? Or admit that we need forgiveness? Whether we’re giving or receiving, forgiveness is hard. It seems unfair. It feels unnatural. And as best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur demonstrates, forgiveness apart from Christ is unnatural. It is only as we understand our need, Christ’s power and example, and what it reallly means to love that we can embrace two of the most liberating acts of love: forgiving and being forgiven.

The Truth About Series

For decades MacArthur has encouraged countless Christians to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and a greater respect for God’s truth. In The Truth About series, he now gathers his landmark teachings about core aspects of the Christian faith in one place. These powerful books are designed to give readers a focused experience that centers on God’s character and how it applies to their daily walk of faith.

Caught between a stifling Amish community and an unnerving outside world, a devout young woman on the run is about to become the newest arrival to West Kootenai, Montana.

On the day of her sister’s death, Rebecca Troyer took her first step away from the Amish.

Rebecca had always strayed a little outside the fold—a job at an Englisch bakery, long weekends with non-Amish friends—but nothing could have prepared her family for what she is about to do: Rebecca is abandoning the community to attend nursing school. She is headed to college, into “the world.”

But she has to make it across the country first.

When she stops in West Kootenai, at the home of a lapsed Amish friend from her youth, Rebecca finds a lot more in Montana than she had bargained for—namely a handsome working man named Caleb Hooley.

Caleb is at a crossroads of his own. A daredevil bachelor with high standards, he has decided he’ll never find an Amish woman who can quench his thirst for adventure. Needless to say, the pretty Amish girl who has fled her community in secret catches his attention immediately.

As hearts are opened and secrets are revealed, Rebecca and Caleb find they have much more in common than just their Amish background. But can this runaway find love with a risk-taker who has lost his faith in God? All it will take is one week in the wilderness to find out . . .
