Throughout history, God has been depicted variously as a judgmental tyrant, a grand conciliator, and even as a rather low-key comic, portrayed by the cigar-smoking George Burns in the movie “Oh God!” The question that’s begging to be answered is: Who is God? This devotional evolved out of one person’s desire to portray God in a truer light. In the Book of Job, God reprimanded Job’s friends for failing to speak truthfully about Him. They misrepresented His character. Job, on the other hand, understood His Maker and was, therefore, the single voice of truth in an otherwise corrupt world. Can you honestly say that you know your Creator? Can you speak truthfully about Him? This devotional will help you get to know the real God, who is neither the judgmental tyrant nor the light-weight movie character. He is, if nothing else, a God of love and compassion. At the conclusion of your devotionals, I have formulated a “Love Quotient” (L.Q.) test to measure the depth of your love. The questions are designed to be thought-provoking and insightful. You may also find them a bit daunting and uncomfortable. Answer each question according to your beliefs. There are no wrong or right answers. It is my hope you’ll find this little exercise revealing and instructive of how you love. The answers and Key is also included. Your heart is what you’re all about. May you understand God’s love for you.

For a long time the person with an addiction has been seen as the problem with society being able to live in denial of the causes. These papers open up innovative and effective ways of working with people troubled by addiction from an attachment-informed perspective.Contributors: Cara Crossan, Richard Gill, Lynn Greenwood, Bob Johnson, Liz Karter, Edward Khantzian, Arlene Vetere, Kate White, Jason Wright

Anders als andere Paartherapeuten gewinnt Gottman seine Erkenntnisse, indem er über Jahrzehnte Tausende von Paaren in seinem Labor beobachtet und videoanalysiert, ihren Kommunikationsstil untersucht, ihren Biorhythmus bestimmt und körperliche Reaktionen wie den Puls misst. Das Buch zeigt, wie Paare ihre Beziehung verbessern, selbst oder gerade dann, wenn eine Beziehungskrise droht oder sie kurze Zeit zurückliegt, indem sie an ihrem Vertrauensverhältnis arbeiten. Wann lohnt es sich überhaupt noch, an einer Beziehung festzuhalten? Paare, die einen ehrlichen Blick auf die Qualität ihrer Beziehung haben wollen, können in einem Selbsttest ihren Liebesquotienten ermitteln.
