Each person has his or her own particular way of looking at life: a kind of grid that helps readers process whatever comes their way. Though this grid can be a helpful tool, far too often it is a weight around the neck. So what can be done about it? How can readers change their perspectives–replacing the grid that drags them down with one that equips them to face life’s challenges and live victoriously?
In Look at It This Way, author and speaker Jan Silvious explores, in-depth, vital truths that can help Christians reframe the way they think: breaking them out of their self-pity, anger, depression, anxiety and hopelessness, and equipping them to deal with the events, circumstances and people in their lives in a healthy and positive way. Jan highlights such key truths as “Whatever happens, it’s one event in a lifetime of events,” “For every choice there is a consequence,” “God isn’t angry with you,” “The last chapter has not been written,” and eight others.
Deeply rooted in Scripture, these valuable insights will give readers hope and real help for managing their thinking, showing how they can, at last, move forward with the courageous and grace-filled life God intended them to live.
