I grew up in the Southern Baptist church of the '90s during the height of the True Love Waits movement, accompanied by Joshua Harrisâ best seller, I Kissed Dating Goodbye. If you donât know what I am referring to, consider yourself blessed. Many of the ideas perpetuated by this culture were infused with fear and shame, offering no practical help or guidance in equipping young people to become healthy sexual human beings. As I approached adulthood, I became accustomed to feeling shame around my sexuality; trying to white-knuckle purity and falling short over and over again. This left me feeling full of self-hatred and hopelessness.Â I hope for this book to serve as the guide I wish Iâd had, providing comfort and clarity to those who find themselves in a similar struggle for sexual health. I have written these essays not only for men, but also for women who want to understand what healthy sexuality can look like in a partner.Â May this book be life-giving to your sexual healing. May courage accompany you as you engage with these essays of spirituality, sexuality, and restoration.

The most comprehensive summary of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Jordan B. Peterson, guaranteed. We can back our claim because we deliver over six times the value of ordinary summaries by providing two hours of immersive, detail-rich summary and analysis of the original book (while still under a fraction of the full book's narration of 16 hours).* 12 Rules for Life became a number one national and international best seller for a simple reason: Dr. Peterson unearths archetypal principles that shape our lives without our knowing.Â He first observes that order and chaos are the two primordial forces of the cosmos. Chaos is the realm of limitless possibilities, unsuitable for life. It is where depression, anxiety, and suffering find a home. Order, on the other hand, is the world of rules, predictability, explanations, science, and conformity.Â In the 12 Rules for Life, Dr. Peterson offers a roadmap to navigate these polar forces. The antidote to chaos is not merely order - it comes down to understanding the subtleties of life, realizing that virtue lies in the balance of the two extremes, and developing your own skills at the game.Â Whether you are an overachiever burning through life, an underachiever with perpetual overwhelm, or an intellectual, seeking deeper truths of human nature, this book is for you.Â The 12 Rules cover a broad spectrum where you will find advice on how to manage your thoughts and emotions, how to thrive, how to get along with others, and how to find a sense of meaning in life. Disclaimer: This is a summary of Dr. Peterson's 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. Our intention is sincere in that listeners could use this summary as an introduction or a companion to the original book, not as a substitute.Â *The average summary narration on Audible, iTunes, and App Store is 15 minutes long.

We desire to be transformed, to grow more and more like Christ. But for many of us, our strategies for change donât work. We misperceive God as a judgmental Father, leaving us demoralized and paralyzed by shame. Stumbling Toward Wholeness offers a new strategy for spiritual growth and life transformation: regularly returning to the arms of a kind and loving Father. There are many books that explore the parable of the Prodigal Son, but few approach it with the personal vulnerability and psychological insight of Andrew Bauman. Andrew shows how taking the time to identify with each of the brothers in this story can help us come to terms with our own brokenness and the need for God revealed in it. We discover a process of change that applies to each of us and a healing journey that moves us toward the likeness of the Father in how we love the people around us and address the pain others have caused us.
