Reviews - What do customers think about Reframe Your Life: Transforming Your Pain into Purpose?
Call it..."something bigger than life-changing" Sep 5, 2007
When I do something purposefully meaningful to benefit another person I might call it "life-changing"...but when something has happened to ME as a result of someone elses' effort I announce it triumphantly as ... "enlightening"..."freeing"..."illuminating"..."life-giving"
Arterburn comes alongside the reader in a non-threatening, non-preachy way...sharing his own experiences, obervations and God-given beliefs. His wise and witty style encourages the reader to feel emotionally safe as well as positively challenged towards emotional health. This book came at the right time for me....I was truly sick and tired of being sick and tired...God used Arterburn to speak hope into my abused heart and new breath into my tired lungs.
If you are like me and have been prayed for, prayed over, and even annointed with oil...and yet the next day still find yourself closeted in emotional secret darkness and confusion.............this can be the key that opens the door. Halleluia ! FREE AT LAST FOR REAL
Reframe Your Way to a New Outlook on Life Jul 31, 2007
Reframing is a process of looking at the events of our lives from a new, broader perspective. It's based on the idea that the way we think, feel and act, and what we believe about ourselves & others is based on the frames we put around our life experiences - and by changing the frame, we consequently impact our current and future thoughts, feeling and actions in a positive way.
In "Reframe Your Life: Transforming Your Pain into Purpose", Mr. Arterburn explains the process of reframing - how to do it and why you would want to - as well as the barriers that keep many people stuck in the same old patterns, even when those patterns are unfulfilling and hurtful. His use of quite a few examples, many of them personal, served to bring his point home even more.
Three things you should be aware of before buying this book:
1. It is an excellent resource for reframing
2. More emphasis is put on reframing major traumas vs. everyday stressors
3. It's very Christian-oriented, with scripture being either quoted or alluded to in every chapter. Now, this isn't a "bad" thing, but I realize that it may be a turn-off to some readers, so I think it's important to mention.
Overall, I found this book to be a great resource for reframing, and would recommend it to those who are ready to let go of the past & change their future in positive ways.
