Item Description...
Do you have a difficult relationship with your parent, sibling, child, or friend? Even though you love this person, the relationship is draining you and robbing you of your peace.

Karla Downing, author of ECPA Gold Medallion Book Award finalist, 10 Lifesaving Principles for Women in Difficult Marriages, introduces 10 principles that can transform your difficult relationship.

No two relationships are the same, but the dilemmas created by dysfunction are always the same. As you apply these principles to your unique situation, you will find that you can survive and thrive in the midst of a difficult relationship.

* Understand scriptural truths
* Reach out to others
* Change yourself
* Detach with love
* Nurture yourself
* Face your fears
* Speak the truth in love
* Forgive
* Set boundaries
* Enter God's rest

Reclaim your sense of well-being as you allow these principles to change the dysfunctional course of your relationship.

Publishers Description
A dysfunctional relationship is any relationship in which you find yourself struggling to force change, give advice, control, or fix problems. The difficulty can be due to an addiction, mental illness, abuse, a trying personality, irresponsibility, or anything else that interferes with a healthy relationship. The relationship may be breaking or already broken under the strain of the problems.When Love Hurts provides practical and scriptural tools to help you transform your dysfunctional relationship. The 10 principles in this book will help you to experience freedom--to let go and love your loved one, and to experience peace, trust, and joy in the midst of the storm. It will even provide you with tools that increase the chance that your loved one will change--the very thing that you have been trying to make him or her do and have failed. One day at a time, you will begin to change and heal. Visit Karla's website at

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Choices that heal!   Jun 9, 2005
There is so much I learned from this book! A lot of tools, understanding and truth is packed into an easy to read format. My husband and I poured through it and put as many of the principles we could to work right away. For me, two of the biggest principles I received, with God's help, is to detach from the difficult relationship and to look at my part and what I can change. I didn't think it was possible to feel God's peace and live my life normally during such a trying time for my family. I was able to not take everything so personally and even treat the person who was difficult with more respect and caring. I found, and it was definently a process, that I could infact feels God's peace and rest and not be so caught up in everything that I couldn't change. This book is extremely practical and truly can help anyone who's willing to change themselves. I have already referred back to it many times and know I will continue to do so. Anyone dealing with a difficult relationship and knows what it feels like to have love hurt needs to read this!
