New York Times bestselling author T.D. Jakes explains the tools that we need to know—whether we’re single and looking to have a committed relationship or already married—before taking the next big step.
The star of BET’s Mind, Body & Soul, and featured guest speaker on Oprah’s Lifeclass, Potter’s House pastor, T.D. Jakes turns his attention to the topic of relationships, guiding you on the right track to making decisions you will benefit from for the rest of your life. In the vein of Joel Osteen’s Become a Better You and Dr. Phil’s Life Strategies, the New York Times bestselling Making Great Decisions gives you the psychological and practical tools you need to reflect, discern, and decide the next step toward strong relationships in your life. “Remember,” writes T.D. Jakes, “your tomorrow is no better than the decisions you make today.”
“My promise is that if you read this book, you will be equipped, you will know all you need to know about making foolproof relational decisions,” writes T.D. Jakes. Choosing the right partner, at home or at work, is one of the most consequential decisions we’ll ever make. How can we be sure that we’re choosing wisely? How do we know if we’re doing the right thing when we change careers? By breaking our decisions down into their five crucial components:
-Research: gathering information
-Roadwork: removing obstacles
-Rewards: listing choices and visualizing consequences
-Revelation: narrowing your options and making your selection
-Rearview: looking back and adjusting as necessary to stay on course
Clear-sighted, realistic, and spiritually uplifting, Making Great Decisions is one of those rare books that can change lives.
