There is nothing as precious in life as a friend who knows you and loves you in spite of yourself Yet over the last couple of decades we ve substituted the joy of real friendship with cheap imitations We settle for community on Facebook and Twitter and a series of text messages that allow us to communicate with someone without the commitment We like each other s beautifully filtered photos on Instagram and delude ourselves into believing we have a community But real friendship requires effort It s showing up laughing loud and crying hard It s forgiving and loving and giving the benefit of the doubt It s making a casserole doing a carpool pickup and making sure she knows those cute shoes are 50 percent off Written in the same comedic style as the New York Times bestsellers Sparkly Green Earrings and The Antelope in the Living Room Nobody s Cuter than You is a laugh-out-loud look at the special bond that exists between friends and a poignant celebration of all the extraordinary people God had the good sense to bring into our lives at exactly the right moments From the friendships we develop over a lifetime to the ones that wounded us and the ones that taught us to love better Melanie Shankle reveals the influence our friends have... on who we were who we are and who we will become And on a day when our jeans feel too tight our chins have decided to embrace hormone-related acne reminiscent of our teen years and our kids have tested the limits of our sanity they are the ones who will look at us and say Nobody s cuter than you more

The most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt Sinai to Israelites and they are changing it now They are the foundation stones of Western Civilization Given their staggering importance you would think that all societies and certainly our educational and religious institutions would be intent on studying them closely Sadly this is not the case Our schools ignore them and our churches and synagogues take them for granted But here s a simple test Who among us can even name all of the Ten Commandments And even among those who can name them how many can explain them in a way that makes sense to the modern eye and ear If you are a person of faith this book will strengthen it if you are agnostic it will force you to rethink your doubts if you re atheist it will test your convictions For people who have thought little about the Ten Commandments as well as for those who have a sophisticated understanding of them it will be a revelation That s a lot to ask of a little book but the only thing that s little here is the length The ideas are very big

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy balanced lifestyle A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible In other words boundaries define who we are and who we are not Boundaries impact all areas of our lives Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God s will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations When confronted with their lack of boundaries they ask - Can I set limits and still be a loving person - What are legitimate boundaries - What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries - How do I answer someone who wants my time love energy or money - Aren t boundaries selfish - Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries Dr Henry Cloud and Dr John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions showing us how to... set healthy boundaries with our parents spouses children friends co-workers and even ourselves more
