 About the Book 

Emotions contends that God has gifted us with emotions since the very beginning--and He did so with very concrete purposes in mind: so that we can enjoy life, so we can connect with others, so we can reflect Gods image in us.But too often,More Emotions contends that God has gifted us with emotions since the very beginning--and He did so with very concrete purposes in mind: so that we can enjoy life, so we can connect with others, so we can reflect Gods image in us.But too often, instead of making the best of this gift, our emotions make the worst of us. Though we cannot see, taste, or touch our emotions, we are constantly affected by their forceful presence and the incredible influence they have over us. They can alter how we view our day, other people, and even the major events in our lives. Through our feelings, we have the capacity to enjoy amazing triumphs and deep fulfillment or experience crushing defeat and ruined relationships.Dr. Stanley shares four steps to handling our emotions in a healthy manner:1. Developing a healthy relationship with God.2. Examining the thoughts that dominate our lives.3. Exchanging our negative thought patters for positive ones.4. Practicing regular and honest prayer.Unhealthy emotions manifest themselves in destructive patterns:1. Persistent lack of peace2. Ongoing indecision3. Diminished self-confidence4. Damaged relationships5. Poor health6. Stagnated spiritual growthThis inspiring book of hope and solutions teaches readers how to take control of their emotions by taking control of their thinking. In its pages readers will learn how to become free of the negative emotions that steal their potential, and reclaim the purpose and joy for which God created them.
