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.

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.

Yet lately, it seems Kari hasn't been letting go as much as she'd like. Perhaps this is just what happens when a couple has been married for eight years. The thrill of a touch or a kiss is too often overshadowed by the needs of a child or the demands of a job. With her eyes closed, Kari knows it's more than that. It will always be more than that. --From On the 7th Day

The T.D. Jakes Relationship Bible

by T. D. Jakes

You are invited to begin a lifelong journey to discovering God's words of truth for your life and relationships, and to discovering God Himself in the words of His Book! From Genesis to Revelation, it is clear that the Holy Bible is, in the words of Bishop T.D. Jakes, "The Greatest Love Story Ever Told." It is not a book about religion, but relationships--from the creation of a man and a woman and their intimate relationship with God in the Garden through the tragic break in that relationship at the Fall and the eventual restoration of that relationship through Jesus Christ and His death on the cross of Calvary. Our relationship with God is the foundation for our lives. If we try to build on any other relationships or things, we are building on quicksand, because at some point all of our relationships will break down. It is from our earthly relationship with God that He gives us the privilege of having healthy relationships with our spouse, our families, our friends, and countless others. *** Inside the pages of God's Word you will discover the divine instruction on life relationships that has been given to generations of people who faced the same issues and questions that you face today, addressing those questions honestly and openly and offering wise counsel for your relationships, inspiration for your needs, comfort for your sorrows, guidance for your confusion, and hope for your discouragement. In The Relationship Bible, you will find the following features from Bishop Jakes: * A 32-page Introduction that sets forth "The Greatest Love Story Ever Told" along with helps to understanding the Bible and guides to answering life's relationship problems. * Reflections of God's Heart--Over 20 pages of articles that continue to develop God's love relationship with mankind. * Lessons of the Heart--Over 80 pages of life lesson articles that address a wide range of relationship issues. * Heartbeats--25 articles that demonstrate how to build relationships. * Heartbreakers--25 articles that demonstrate how relationships are damaged. * Heart Murmurs--10 powerful prayers for your personal relationships. * Words of Jesus in Red * Concordance * One-Year Bible Reading Plan
