Is it unloving or selfish to set a boundary? Are Christians ever called to walk away from a relationship that’s no longer safe or sustainable? LYSA has asked these hard questions in the midst of her own relational struggles. But after thousands of hours of counseling intensives and theological research, Lysa has discovered that good boundaries pave the road for the truest version of love to emerge within the relationships that make up so much of who we are and what we want the most. And, sometimes, a goodbye really is necessary for the health of everyone involved. Building upon and further unpacking the scriptural concepts in Good Boundaries and Goodbyes, this six-session Bible study with Lysa will equip you to: ● Determine the appropriate amount of personal and emotional access someone has to you based on how responsible they’ll be with that access. ● Stop being misled and emotionally paralyzed by wrongly interpreted or weaponized scriptures that perpetuate unhealthy dynamics in difficult relationships. ● Overcome the frustrating cycle of ineffective boundary-setting with biblical principles and practical strategies to help you communicate, keep, and implement healthier patterns. ● Be equipped to say goodbye when a relationship has shifted from difficult to destructive and is no longer sustainable by studying 3 types of goodbyes found in God’s Word. ● Receive therapeutic and theological wisdom you can trust directly from Lysa’s Christian counselor Jim Cress, and Proverbs 31 Ministries’ Director of Theology, Dr. Joel Muddamalle.
