Mark those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Are you living a life out of control? Are people taking advantage of you? Do you have trouble saying NO? Are you disappointed with God because of unanswered prayers? Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. Join us to begin setting healthy boundaries for the first time or to brush up on your skills.
Stop Letting The Past And Other People Control You: Does everyone else’s needs take precedence over yours? Is someone else’s problem your problem? If, like so many others, you’ve lost sight of your own life in the drama of tending to someone else’s, you may be codependent. A codependent is anyone who is dependent on another person to the point of being controlled or manipulated by that person. Exploring the concept of losing oneself in the name of helping another will help you learn to balance an unbalanced relationship. Learn how to stop controlling others and start caring for yourself and have a renewed commitment to put Christ first.
Whether you call it stress, tension, frustration, or anxiety, worry can take its toll on health and well-being. It can be caused by life changes, such as divorce or career upheaval, or it can become a debilitating chronic disorder. “The Worry Workbook” helps readers understand what causes anxiety and how they can move beyond worry into emotional freedom. Practical steps, interactive exercises, checklists, and guided questions help readers identify their fears, replace negative talk with positive action, learn to accept what is out of their control, and make life-enhancing choices.
The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn’t a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. This 7 week study will help you break the cycle of “I’ll start on Monday” and help you feel good about yourself today, stop agonizing over numbers on the scale and make peace with your body, give you wisdom that leads to victory and reach your healthy goals while growing closer to God through the process.
My name is TR, and I was a part of the Boundaries group that started in January that Lorraine Charbonneau led. I saw the evaluation form and I do not feel like it really gives you a true picture of how impactful this class has been for me. I wanted to be sure to share that with you.
A year ago in the spring I was helping a teenage girl work through some struggles; this triggered some things in me and threw me into dealing with some major anxiety because of unresolved things that have happened in my childhood.
When I checked out the [Eve Center]website in December, I noticed the boundaries class. Boundaries are something that I thought might be a good idea to set with my parents- especially my mother… little did I know how much what I would learn would turn my world upside down- in a good way. I truly mean that.
There were red flags all over the place that I had some major work to do. I realized that I have had poor boundaries myself in taking on responsibility that is not mine… and I have come to learn in this group that my mother had and continues to have some MAJOR MAJOR boundary issues. Sometimes I would leave class crying because I could check off almost every single [boundary violation].
I never really knew how to handle my mother growing up- but I am learning how to deal with her now with these new boundaries I am putting into place. She does not like it AT ALL. She is fighting back and throwing “trantrums,” but this group has helped to support me in the midst of this. I do not think anyone can set boundaries like this without support from other people. This group is not just a class about learning a cool new idea… This is serious life-changing work!
I figured out in this group that boundaries were a BIG answer to a lot of my anxiety and depression. I am finally dealing with pain that has happened through the years that I never have before. I am not totally on the other side to freedom yet, but I am taking steps and feeling more and more hope.
I am so so thankful that I found the Eve Center. I look forward to hopefully being able to serve there in the future and help other people with the issues that I have dealt with in my life. My friends are probably sick of me giving them lessons about boundaries and talking about how awesome the Eve Center is! :
