An expanded edition of this classic book on grief and loss―with a new preface and epilogue Loss came suddenly for Jerry Sittser. In an instant, a tragic car accident claimed three generations of his family: his mother, his wife, and his young daughter. While most of us will not experience such a catastrophic loss in our lifetime, all of us will taste it. And we can, if we choose, know as well the grace that transforms it. A Grace Disguised plumbs the depths of sorrow, whether due to illness, divorce, or the loss of someone we love. The circumstances are not important; what we do with those circumstances is. In coming to the end of ourselves, we can come to the beginning of a new life―one marked by spiritual depth, joy, compassion, and a deeper appreciation of simple blessings.

A recording of, Life Model leaders, Jim Wilder and Ed Khouri, live at Thriving DC 2015: Leader Advance. This 5 hour, two part series features the lectures: How to Spot a Narcissist in the Woods and How do we keep a Narcissist's Bite from Being Fatal?
A single narcissist can destroy budding community because they deflect even gentle reminders that they are not relating well to others. They defend themselves, blame others and refuse to consider their own culpability. How can we (as leaders and gentle protectors) help people leave narcissistic behavior behind?
You won’t want to miss the combination of brain training, human development and connecting to God that will empower you to see the narcissists in your midst from God’s perspective so you can lead your group back to joy.
This book contains the most complete description of Life Model maturity stages in print. It includes detailed information on the Life Model maturity stages for men and women from infant to elder. Written by James Wilder, it provides an in depth look on the brain maturity and human development to help produce healthy men in all areas of their lives. Yes, this is a guide to the inner workings of men, for men and the women who love them!
Everyone experiences loss, but few of us knows how to process losses fully, in a way that leaves us more resilient and joyful than before.

In this workbook, you will learn:
How to identify grief as well as how grief feels
What our culture teaches us about grief
How to surrender your sadness to Jesus

Join David Takle, a brilliant mind and protégé of Dallas Willard, on his adventure of discovering just how God's grace transforms us. He continues to share with us the wisdom he has received from Christ over the course of his life and ministry, Kingdom Formation. With more than 400 pages of detailed information on spiritual formation, this long-awaited book is the basis from which the entire Life Model Forming course was created.
Forming is a fresh, life-giving approach to Christian growth and development that may be very different from what you have tried before. Instead of relying on your willpower and hard work to make changes in your life, Forming shows you how to engage with God in ways that will change you from the inside out

Healing Troubled Hearts through exchanges with the Master, walks you through Bill Day's journey out of New Age spirituality and into a solid faith in Jesus. In the book, he explains the distinctions between Christian inner healing and new age practices, and gives many examples (from his own practice) of various types of healing prayer.
This is a book about inner healing ministry and therapy and the author, Dr. William Day, is a hybrid of psychotherapist and minister. He first describes his own tortuous journey that finally led to real healing. He then shows how this healing and subsequent training shaped the development of his private practice: Deep Healing Psychotherapy. The book has a two-fold focus of distinguishing Biblical inner healing from New Age spirituality and firmly anchoring its roots and substance in the heart of the Gospel. The pages abound with real-life stories, actual inner healing sessions and testimonies of patients and colleagues.

How can we create the kind of community we actually want to belong to? We dream of healthy communities where we can both give and receive life, but most of us hesitate when we think about getting close to the people we know. Will they still want to be with us if they get close enough to see our flaws? Sometimes it seems easier to throw ourselves into performance-based living where we earn kudos without having to reveal our hearts; but deep inside we know that chasing the performance-based life does not satisfy, leaving us sad and lonely.
During Thriving DC 2015, we engaged with God over the topic of Intimacy for Everyone. This conference is for everyone regardless of marital status, for God created all of us to live in intimacy—to take off our masks and be transparent without overwhelming each other. We were made for community. We were also made to be deeply connected to God, abiding in his presence, hearing his voice, receiving his comfort and seeing his perspective on ourselves, those we love and all of life.

From the moment we’re born we search for joy but always seem to come away empty. What is it? How can we get it? Is it even possible?
Joy is a banquet table to which we are all invited. The places are set, and the table is filled with the delightful aroma that satisfies our deepest longing for life-giving connections with God and with others. There is room at this table for everyone; young and old, weak or strong. So pull up a chair, we've been waiting for you! This is the real joy you've been seeking. The solutions and exercises in this book will teach you the essential skills needed to restore and grow joy with those around you.
Joy Starts Here is considered the sequel to Living from the Heart Jesus Gave You. Authors E. James Wilder, Ed M. Khouri, Chris M. Coursey and Shelia D. Sutton share their life stories as they walk us though how to live in joy. Real joy is attainable; it is able to be grown and cultivated. When real joy is found, it can change families, schools, churches and the world.

All of our relationships were meant to be life-giving, but many are more painful than joyful. Learn how to build joy with those you love and how to connect deeply and intimately with God so that you can interact with him throughout your day whenever you need comfort, guidance or just someone to love you.
Living Relationally examines what life could be like if you had the relational skills to connect easily with God and others. Learn to live a life focused on relationships instead of one focused on success or performance. Based on a compilation of key concepts from the Life Model (and full of Life Model exercises!), Living Relationally is for people who want to learn exercises that will transform your life through increasing maturity and attunement to God.
In this 12-week class, you will begin to train your brain to receive and give joy, return to joy from distress, build joy with others and connect better with God. Topics integrate neuroscience with the Bible, and relational exercises that help rewire our brains to live in joy and peace, the quiet face of joy.
Catching your past invading the present and what to do about it!
Outsmarting Yourself is about uncovering your brain's strategies for navigating the world - strategies which sometimes help...and sometimes don't! Dr. Lehman presents evidence from scientific research, case studies, and personal experience that will convince you of the reality of "invisible" memory and your Verbal Logical Explainer (VLE), and then help you maximize their strengths while minimizing the havoc they can cause. Dr. Lehman teaches you how to leverage the things you can choose to do something about in order to overcome the problems you can't choose to change directly. Outsmarting Yourself will enable you to understand the people in your world, including yourself, and give you realistic, psychologically sound, and Christ-centered tools for becoming a joyful, life-giving person with thriving relationships.
