We may have grown up hearing people around us express firmly held beliefs that sounded perfectly credible to us at the time. As a result, we never questioned them, and may still repeat the same things, assuming they are the truth. Yet these beliefs, while they contain a grain of truth and sound convincing, don't hold up under close scrutiny, and in fact can be quite detrimental to us and our relationships.

It is time to explode these myths! Let's take a close look at a few that powerfully affect our relationships: “It's selfish to have my needs met,” “Just leave the past behind,” “I just need to give it to God,” and “If I change my behavior, everything will improve and I will grow.”

This four-part series will set you free from some crazy-making ideas and give you a clearer understanding of what's true and what's not.

OTHER SERIES WITH John Townsend
Hard times make us look for God. 

Everyone has problems. But if we could solve all our difficulties ourselves, would we ever search for God? Psychologist John Townsend says "It is actually the very unfixability of our problems and our powerlessness to bring right results that keep us asking, 'Where is God?'" 

In this series, Townsend offers new insights into the pursuit for God's help and presence. Designed to give you hope and meaning, he divides the discussion into four parts: 
  • Why does a good God allow hard times? 
  • God may not be who you think He is.
  • Finding hope in hard times.
  • In people who are for you.
 
With powerful stories and practical applications, Where Is God? assures us that even when it feels as though God is absent, it is his nature to be in relationship, to connect with, love, and guide us. And when we seek him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, he shows up in ways that transform us forever.

Most of us have no idea how to reach out to, confront, negotiate with, or set appropriate limits with hard-to-manage relationships. Who's Pushing Your Buttons? provides both principles and constructive solutions from a uniquely biblical perspective.

When you experience emotional injury, fear, shame, or pride, your first impulse is to hide the hurting parts of yourself from God, others, and even yourself. Often, you've learned these hiding patterns during childhood to protect yourself in a threatening environment. The problem is that when you hide your injuries and frailties, you isolate yourself from the very things you need in order to heal and mature. What served as protection for a child becomes a prison to an adult.

In Hiding From Love, Dr. John Townsend helps you to explore thoroughly the hiding pattern you've developed and guides you toward the healing grace and truth that God has built into safe, connected relationships with Himself and others.
