Robert Jones illustrates how positive Christian truth revolutionizes the selfunderstanding
of parents. The Christian parent must first see him or herself as a
Christian not as a single parent. Jesus Christ defines us not by our social standing but
by our connection to Him. Jesus is the single parent’s “significant other.” This
changes the way you relate to your children and to others.

Most often, truth attaches meaningfully to a person’s life through an

Three general principles of resolving conflicts. First, God calls you to pursue
peace in all your relationships, with a realism that trusts God about the outcome.
Second, God teaches you how to view conflicts: they are to be resolved, to be
expected, to be seized as opportunities. Third, God directs you how to resolve
conflicts. Your commitment to God, your repentance for contributing to conflict, and
your love are the path toward concrete solutions.

Perhaps no single problem plagues people more than worry or anxiety. Worry is a solvable problem. Matthew 6:19-34 gives hope to overcome it. Change starts by recognizing that worry is sinful. In fact, it is idolatry, and the solution is repentance. It is also unbelief, and the solution is faith. Gives a series of selfcounseling questions to help people examine their worries in the light of God's Word.

Welch tackles "one of the deepest, most common roots of our relational problems — the fear of man — and its antidote, the fear of God." Other people become "our idol of choice," whether it is labeled shyness, peer pressure, peoplepleasing,
codependency, or need for love and approval. The fear of the Lord, our identity before God in Christ, and delight in God set people free of this tangle of the flesh.
