Wii20100207-Entry063-What God Blesses

Tim discusses the 5th Law of Fences, The Law of Motivation, and how to move from selfish, immature motives to other-centered, mature motivations. These maturing motivations will provide us with the ability to live with boundaries that are not only right, but beneficial as well.

This teaching arc is based on the book “Boundaries”, by Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend, and is supplemented by their other books, Boundaries in Marriage, Boundaries for Teens, and Boundaries for Kids.

Listen on your iPhone

Made a small change to the website today that makes it possible to listen to the class directly from your iPhone – without downloading through iTunes.

Of course, the easiest way to listen to each new entry is to subscribe in iTunes. Each new entry is automatically downloaded when you go into iTunes. (If you don’t know how to do this, post a comment and we’ll give you some simple instructions.)

But if you’re on the go, and don’t want to go through the (minor) hassle, just come to the website and click the link that says, “Listen to the [date] class”.

Hope that helps!
