Reframe Your Life
Transforming Your Pain into Purpose

by Stephen Arterburn
Read by the author

      Stephen Arterburn is refreshingly honest when he says that reframing is not a quick fix. It takes time and work, but the reward is a healthy and whole life, healed from the injuries of the past. Reframe Your Life details a Christian-based method for pulling yourself out of the victim state.

For me, memorable discussions include the difference between half-truth, truth and full truth; the largest, most valuable and powerful number in the world; personal plutonium; the adolescent kind of mind; and showering away the shame.

How to accomplish your change from victim status, the part many self-help books leave out or barely touch upon, is a key factor throughout. Using "The Power of One" is a good example, as is the section about the basis for the components of the Right Frame. The text is chatty, so you feel like Stephen Arterburn is having a conversation with you about the things that keep you down, and ways to turn them around in your mind so you can move away from hurt and anger into a joyful life.
