Boundaries: Setting Healthy Relationship Limits

A Five-Week Class Taught by Karla Downing

Do want to take back control of your life?
Do you feel overburdened, overwhelmed, and overcommitted?
Are your life and relationships out of balance?
Do you say yes when you mean no?
Do you find yourself resentful toward others because you felt pressured to give in?
Do you have difficult people in your life?

Boundaries for Life and Relationships will provide you with practical tools based on biblical truths designed to enable you to establish effective personal boundaries with yourself and others.
