Item description for Before You Do Workbook by T. D. Jakes...
Overview In Before You Do, best selling author T.D. Jakes turns his attention and teachings to the topic of relationships and the issues that need resolving once you've learned to use the spiritual and psychological tools for reevaluating your place in life and for repositioning yourself for a life without limits.
Relationship decisions come down to five crucial components, according to Bishop Jakes:
Research: gathering information and collecting data
Roadwork: removing obstacles and clearing the path
Rewards: listing choices and imaging their consequences
Revelation: narrowing your options and making your selection
Rearview: looking back and adjusting as necessary to stay on course
Before You Do gets you on the right track to making decisions that you'll be proud of and reap the benefits of for the rest of your life, as will the generations that follow you. He gives you insight on how to reflect, discern, and decide the next step to take to have a strong and enduring love, marriage, and family.
The Bishop takes a spiritual and practical approach to inherently emotional issues such as the outside influences on our relationships, e.g., in-laws, friends, and former spouses; coping with anger; parenting; financial concerns; negotiating high-profile lives; and so many more of the issues people face every day. His special brand of counseling and teaching appeals to the faith-based community and beyond, reaching millions who receive his wisdom in all media, especially books.

Changes view of how we see life. Sep 14, 2009
A good workbook but some of it was irrelevant to the single and non-working person. There are helpful parts for the young who want to get started with a fresh start and don't have to fall back on uneducated guesses. A thrill to work out the problems of everyday living and now I have some sort of protection for the unprepared parts of my life that may reoccur it changes how well I get it.
Not what I expected. But Love Jakes! Aug 26, 2009
This book I found to be more for pre-marital care. I purchased it thinking it was for life's decisions. But I'm already married!
