"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."--1 John 4:8 Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship, revitalize a tired one, or rescue one gone awry? Do you yearn to grow closer to God, and to further incorporate Him and His teachings into your marriage? We all want a lifetime of love, support, and faith. But sometimes we need a little help. Enter Dr. Sue Johnson, developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and "the best couple therapist in the world," according to bestselling relationship expert Dr. John Gottman. In CREATED FOR CONNECTION, Dr. Johnson and Kenneth Sanderfer, a leading EFT practitioner in the Christian community, share Johnson's groundbreaking and remarkably successful program for creating stronger, more secure relationships not only between partners, but between us and God. The message of CREATED FOR CONNECTION is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, or making grand romantic gestures. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship by recognizing that you are attached to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is on a parent, and we are on the Heavenly Father, for nurturing, soothing, and protection. The way to enhance or save our relationships with each other and with God is to be open, attuned, responsive, and to reestablish safe emotional connection. Filled with Bible verses, inspiring real-life stories, and guidance, CREATED FOR CONNECTION will ensure a lifetime of love.

A “lively” memoir of a woman finding the cure for a broken heart in the world of ballroom dancing (Booklist). Maria Finn’s husband was cheating. First she threw him out. Then she cried. Then she signed up for tango lessons. It turned out that tango had a lot to teach about understanding love and loss, about learning how to follow and how to lead, how to live with style and flair, take risks, and sort out what it is you really want. As Maria’s world begins to revolve around the friendships she makes in dance class and the milongas (social dances) she regularly attends in New York City, we discover with her the fascinating culture, history, music, moves, and beauty of the Argentine tango. With each new dance step she learns—the embrace, the walk, the sweep, the exit—she is one step closer to returning to the world of the living. Eventually Maria travels to Buenos Aires, the birthplace of tango—and finds the confidence to try romance again.

The last thing I want in my life is something complicated. Everett McCabe is very complicated. It started with a noise in my yard late at night. I thought it was nothing. Then I noticed the boot print near my porch. There’s someone watching me, stalking me, and my small town police can’t seem to do anything to protect me. This is my home, but I’m terrified. My friend’s older brother is the last person I expected to step in and pick up where the police left off. After all, I used to tease Rett. Call him a Boy Scout. A prim and proper do-gooder with a stick up his butt. I had no idea what was lurking under his buttoned-up exterior. Something protective. Something possessive. Something… dominant. I’m scared. But I’m safe in his arms. I’m confused. But his kisses make everything clear. I’m falling apart. But his ropes? They’re holding me together. And when it comes to my stalker, maybe now I can hold my own. Disclaimer: Reckless Heat exposes the steamier side of the small town of Reckless Falls. This book has some light bondage and domination/submission themes. It might be a little spicier than you'd expect, but Reckless Falls is no ordinary small town!
