Now What Do I Do? by Dr. John Townsend
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dr. John Townsend, clinical psychologist, entertaining speaker, and co-founder of Cloud-Townsend Resources, has authored or co-authored nineteen books, including the best selling Gold Medallion book 'Boundaries,' and Boundaries in Marriage. Dr. Townsend is a regular co-host on New Life Live Radio, and together with Dr. Henry Cloud he developed the Ultimate Leadership Program, a highly effective week-long workshop designed to accelerate the personal and professional growth of businesspeople, pastors, ministry, and small-group leaders. He also partners with Church Communications Network, which broadcasts his leadership and relationship talks and seminars to churches via satellite across North America. Dr. Townsend lives in Southern California.
In his latest book, Dr. John Townsend has hit another home run. I have loved books by this author for quite some time, and this one is no exception.
What impressed me the most about this book is the simple way of addressing our problems, and we all have problems. Early on in the book, he discusses "coping problems" versus "curable problems". He says, "Most of us have curable problems that we think are actually coping problems. That is, we have given up hope that certain situations can truly be different."
Practical and yet profound steps are covered in how to deal with our problems. Dr. Townsend outlines how to break our problems into easy to understand segments, and he then shows how to work towards our goals, dreams or needs ... in very achievable steps.
There are areas of our lives that we can control - our heart, our values and our time. Dr. Townsend shows how to take charge and channel these areas in the most effective manner.
This is a great little book, packed full of great big advice that we all need to hear, no matter what stage we are in life.
Thank you to Harper Collins Publishing for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
