Number-one New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst helps readers stop the dysfunction of unhealthy relationships by showing them biblical ways to set boundaries–and, when necessary, say goodbye–without losing the best of who they are.
Relationships are wonderful . . . until they’re not.
Have you ever thought, I can’t keep doing this–something has to change? Or, I’ve tried everything to fix this relationship but nothing is working–I fear I’m becoming someone I don’t even like? Or even, I love this person, but this is starting to feel impossible?
You’ve listened to all the advice. But you’re beginning to realize that if the other person doesn’t want to change what’s broken in the relationship, you can’t change it on your own. So now what?
Lysa TerKeurst understands this dance with dysfunction and wants to be your insightful, compassionate friend who will teach you that it isn’t unloving to set a boundary, and it isn’t unchristian to say goodbye. You’ll be relieved to learn that boundaries aren’t just a good idea, they’re a God idea.
This eye-opening book will be refreshingly helpful in giving you the biblical wisdom and confidence to set boundaries you can keep, communicate them, and finally see them working in your life. Good Boundaries and Goodbyes was born out of Lysa’s own personal struggles with boundaries, extensive theological research, and therapeutic experiences that transformed the way she defined and pursued healthy relationships. Lysa is now more committed than ever to loving people well without losing the best of who she is. She wants to help you do the same.
