64 Lessons for a Life Without Limits

by T. D. Jakes

What people need today when they and society at large are in social and economic distress is great advice and spiritual support that is easy to access. 64 Lessons - informed by two of Bishop Jakes' bestselling titles, Reposition Yourself and Making Great Decisions - is a ready-reference book of advice to keep readers on course in managing their careers, relationships, health, home and spiritual well-being. The 64 lessons explore ideas like: 1. Good choices begin with research; 2. Quitting can be good, at the right time; 3. Begin before 'need' arises; 4. Regret can be the begging of triumph over adversity. For instance, we've all been told that quitters never win. But, there IS a time to quit, whether it's your job, marriage, church or project. The biggest problem with quitting is the timing. Quitting too soon may mean that you relinquish your dreams. Get comfortable with change. Even after you've repositioned yourself, change is constant. You may need to quit something in order to make room for the next season of your life. Before you quit anything, look within and determine your real motives. Revisit the longings deep in your heart. Get a clear perspective on what you're releasing and what your taking hold of. Examine your prior choices and consider what you've 'quit' in the past. This honest self-examination will prepare you for a new beginning.

Let It Go

by T. D. Jakes

T.D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author of Reposition Yourself, Making Great Decisions, and more than a dozen other titles, now presents this book on forgiveness, demonstrating once again why he is called "a spiritual genius," a "master of meeting mankind eye to eye," and one of America's best preachers. He understands that he and fellow Christians share spiritual truths "that transcend time and culture and reflect a universal understanding of human nature." The spiritual truth he explores in Let It Go concerns forgiveness and why it is important for those on the receiving end of wrongful behavior as well as those who commit acts of wrongdoing. "Forgiveness is a big idea and it works best when it is invested into people who have the courage to grasp the seven-foot-high idea of what's best for their future rather than the four-foot-high idea of recompense for what has happened in their past," Jakes writes in Let It Go. This book explores forgiveness as an idea and at the same time offers specific and clear actions for readers who seek to apply the idea in their daily lives. Offenses are a part of life, he says. But conflicts can be resolved and relationships do have a future, if we learn how to forgive. No matter how great or small the injustice, Jakes shows how the matter can be put behind you for the sake of a better tomorrow if you can Let It Go.

Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life

by T. D. Jakes Sarah Jakes

Don't let your past keep you from a full future. Like every girl, Sarah Jakes dreamed of a life full of love, laughter, and happy endings. But her dreams changed dramatically when she became pregnant at age thirteen, a reality only compounded by the fact that her father, Bishop T. D. Jakes, was one of the most influential megachurch pastors in the nation. As a teen mom and a high-profile preacher's kid, her road was lonely. She was shunned at school, gossiped about at church. And a few years later, when a fairy-tale marriage ended in a spiral of hurt and rejection, she could have let her pain dictate her future. Instead, she found herself surrounded by a God she'd given up on, crashing headlong with Him into a destiny she'd never dreamed of. Sarah's captivating story, unflinchingly honest and deeply vulnerable, is a vivid reminder that God can turn even the deepest pain into His perfection. More than a memoir, "Lost and Found" offers hope and encouragement. Perhaps you, like Sarah, find yourself wandering the detours of life. Regardless of how lost you feel, you, too, can be found.

The Memory Quilt

by T. D. Jakes

New York Times bestselling author T.D. Jakes weaves together ten life lessons in this modern day Christmas tale--now in paperback. A perfect Christmas for Lela Edwards this year would include the presence of her husband, her three daughters, and her favorite granddaughter, Darcie. They would each be happy, healthy, and properly married. But life doesn't always unfold in a perfect way, even for God-loving, churchgoing people like these. Lela's husband of fifty years has recently passed, and her daughters now live in towns and states far from the Chicago neighborhood where they were raised. Darcie is traveling to be with her mother for the holidays, not her grandmother, whom she expects to come down hard on her for deciding to divorce her husband and the father of her unborn child. Lela is upset and annoyed with Darcie--and with herself for breaking her own time-honored tradition of making a quilt to celebrate each family wedding. The quilt is still in separate pieces, and apparently so is the marriage of Doug and Darcie. The Christmas season is about celebrating the birth and meaning of Christ; about the hope and inspiration that the story we revisit each year offers. So, as the days of the season progress, Lela participates in a Bible study group that focuses on the Virgin Mary to find messages and guidance in the Scriptures. If they heed the lessons of the Virgin Mary, they will learn from their mistakes and misjudgments of each other and find favor with God.
