Arrivals, Departures and the Adventures Inbetween

Christopher O'Shaughnessy

Everyone’s got a story to tell. If your story involves growing up among different cultures – either moving between them or having them move around you – then read this book. Growing up and transitioning cross-culturally can present unexpected challenges and bestow surprising skills. This is a book of adventures that helped me identify some of those challenges and realize some of those skills. Hopefully it can help you too – which is important because you’ve got more to contribute to the world than you realize.

The "Hold Me Tight" Guide for Christian Couples

Heralded by the New York Times and Time magazine as the couples therapy with the highest rate of success, Emotionally Focused Therapy works because it views the love relationship as an attachment bond. In Hold Me Tight, Dr. Sue Johnson introduced Emotionally Focused Therapy to the general public and taught that the way to save and enrich a relationship is to re-establish safe emotional connection. In this revised edition, Dr. Johnson has adapted her classic guide for Christian couples. Filled with Bible verses, inspiring passages, and Christian-specific advice, Created for Connection will inform a new audience of readers, bringing them closer to God--and each other.


Marriage Masala

Rod & Ruthie Gilbert

52 Spices for a Healthy Marriage

Marriage Masala is a collection of 'spices' or skills collected from the experience we have gained in our own marriage of 35 years and from our family of four sons and a daughter. We owe them all so much; we love, appreciate and continue to learn from each of their unique relationships, never forgetting our fourth son who continues to spice the family with energy and ideas! Marriage Masala is resourcing many couples worldwide to build marriages. Our purpose is to give fun and inspiration to any couple willing to skilfully blend the masalas and share them. Watch the event we hosted with Rod and Ruthie on Resilience.
