Wow. This book really hit home for me personally. I loved how Shelley was able to dig right down to the real problems we face in relationships, whether it is with another friend, a church member of a family member. I personally know the struggles of understanding why friendships fail, relationships end or family members pull away, but this book gives great insight into the problems and how to overcome them with the Word of God as our guide.
On page 65, Shelley discusses using the scripture in Ephesians 6:17 where it says to take up the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Shelley goes into great detail about the true meaning of the word sword based on Rick Renner’s teaching of the word. I had never heard the sword disected in such a way as described in this book by Shelley Hendrix.
Shelley goes through many situations we all face in relationships and helps us to see that there are many underlying issues that maybe we need to look at in our own heart or maybe the other person is having a problem understanding the real issue in their own lives that causes the breakdown of relationships.
Relationships are hard in this world because the enemy knows that if he can break down the relationships within homes and families as well as the church, then he has an advantage.We have to continue to work to repair these relationships and continue to make progress to find peace. Shelley offers valuable tools to deal with confrontation,conflict, jealousy, envy and pride within our relationships.
I loved the book and would highly recommend it to anyone dealing with relationship issues. I know Shelley has offered a great tool for everyone, whether you are a woman or a man. These tools have no boundaries. Great read and loved it…
