Many people wish their life was different. They wish they were not so sensitive or controlled by their emotions; they wish their relationships were more loving or that they were able to be more assertive; that they did not struggle with certain habits or could lose weight and get fitter; and on and on the list goes. Some may feel they have tried "everything", and come to a place of resignation. Others have not tried anything, simply tolerating how things are, unaware that things could be better than they currently are. In other words, they believe "this is as good as it gets". When we have a desire for change but an inability to create that change, it is a source of immense frustration or despondency.
This book has been designed for readers who are followers of Jesus and for those who would like to recommend something to friends who are not. All the principles match the teachings of Jesus. Rather than overwhelm all readers, Richard has cleverly included (a) explanation of, references to and diagrams about body, soul and spirit; (b) personal testimony and encouragement to seek out what God might be saying about messages people receive and retain about their identity; (c) a personal testimony and an exercise readers can undertake to consider God as a trusted mirror to help find their identity in Jesus.
