Empowered Living – Book


New—Improved—2nd Edition 2023

Most books don’t come with guarantees. This one does. If you read and actually implement the relationship principles in this 12-week plan, you will experience a changed life, a changed marriage, and a changed family. But you must work the plan!

Each chapter uses a case study from Jim and Sally’s counseling files to illustrate a relational problem and solution. There are goals as well as daily prayer and reflection activities to help you practically apply the principles gleaned from the case studies to your situation.

If you see problems in your life without a lot of solutions, rejoice because God has a solution for you. “All of us,” says the author, “are batteryless toys … but we can be empowered. We can live an empowered life, acquire empowered marriages, and enjoy empowered families. It has worked for others, and it will work for you as well. The choice is yours.”

Make a prayerful, daily application of the principles and tools in these pages for the next 12 weeks, and you will experience a new walk with your God and a new way of life–Guaranteed!
