Changes That Heal | Dr. Henry Cloud

Many of us struggle with anxiety, loneliness, and feelings of inadequacy, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that God created us in His image, but how can we be loving when we feel burned out? How can we be free when we struggle with addiction? Will we ever enjoy the complete healing God promises?


Changes That Heal by Christian psychologist Dr. Henry Cloud offers a down-to-earth plan to help us recover from the wounds of the past and grow more and more into the image of God. Combining his professional expertise and personal experience, Dr. Cloud guides us through four basic ways to become joy-filled, mature followers of Christ:

  • Connect more deeply with others
  • Separate from others in healthy ways
  • Understand the good and the bad in ourselves and others
  • Grow into greater emotional and spiritual maturity

With fascinating case studies and helpful techniques we can start using immediately, Changes That Heal reminds us that God promises to complete His good work in us.

We highly recommend this book for everyone, but be warned ahead of time. There are materials in the book that will challenge you, that will make you examine your heart and your life, and become vulnerable with others.
