Looking within, looking around, looking up…in the search for our identity, Trevin Wax helps give direction for the journey, and warnings for pitfalls along the way.
Searching For Identity
Bob: I think that all of us, throughout the day, find ourselves sometimes looking around/sometimes looking in. We need to be reminded to look up; we need to remember that that’s where truth is found; that’s where a right understanding of our self is found. We need to help our kids with this as well.
Dave and Ann have been talking today with Trevin Wax, who has written a very helpful book on this subject called Rethink Your Self—all about identity. A great book for us and a great book for us to go through with our teenagers. In fact, we want to make this book available to you this week/to any of you who would like a copy. If you can help support the ministry of FamilyLife with a donation, we’d love to send you this book as our thank-you gift. Go to FamilyLifeToday.com to make an online donation; or call us to donate over the phone: 1-800-FL-TODAY is our number.
Let me just remind you that the ministry of FamilyLife—all that happens through this ministry—happens because you make it happen. When you give to FamilyLife Today, you’re helping us reach hundreds of thousands of people, day in and day out, with practical biblical help and hope for their marriage and for their family. So thanks, in advance, for your support of the ministry. We hope you enjoy Trevin Wax’s book, Rethink Your Self. Again, you can request it when you make an online donation at FamilyLifeToday.com; or call to donate at 1-800-358-6329; that’s 1-800-“F” as in family, “L” as in life, and then the word, “TODAY.”
Now, tomorrow, Trevin Wax is going to help us understand what happens in our lives when we adjust our perspective: when instead of looking inside first or looking around us first, we start to look up first. I hope you can join us for that tomorrow.
