Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend {Update & Expanded}

I have been waiting YEARS to get my hands on a copy of Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend and finally got my chance to read through and review this book. They have just released a new updated and expanded book to address some things that are more prevalent in our society than they were when they first wrote the book, and my time waiting to read this book has come to a close with the expected results.

I have heard so many wonderful things about this book over the years. Everyone that I talked to told me it was one of their most transformational books and a staple in their Christian walk, besides God's Word of course, and how much this book has really helped them in ever aspect of their lives. After reading it, I can see why they have said this.

This book is AMAZING!!! I never expected the wonderful combination of biblical knowledge and psychology found within, that will help you set boundaries in your life, which in turn, can be abundantly transformational. You might think you have very good boundaries, but I challenge you to check that thought at the door when you pick this book up. I thought I had some great boundaries set, but found out that mine weren't as stable and defined as I believed.

What I really loved is that everything is applicable. The tips and suggestions they offer are not far fetched and are highly attainable. You can easily implement EVERYTHING they have laid out in this book and to give you zero excuses, they have a workbook that goes along, which I really want to get, that will help make matters of implementation even easier.

With the newly updated version they have included information about setting boundaries in the digital age. Let's not kid ourselves, we know that digital everything is taking over our lives and if we don't have a well-defined boundary then we might get lost in things that are completely unnecessary and highly stressful.

This book went well beyond my expectations and I am so happy that I finally have my hands on a copy. This will be one book that I will keep referring back to all the time and will use to set boundaries that I can live with and that will help me find a happier life, with less "issues."
