Sophia Institute: Overcoming Sinful Anger

I have discussed with many families the issue of anger. This book has great reviews and taking any of the steps can only improve a persons outlook and turn their angry ways around. This is one for the bookshelf and it’s in ebook too.

Overcoming Sinful Anger

Sophia Institute: Overcoming Sinful Anger.

When St. Jane Francis de Chantal encouraged St. Francis de Sales to be a bit angrier over the opposition they were facing in starting their religious order, he replied, “Would you have me lose in a quarter hour what has taken me twenty years’ hard work to acquire?

St. Francis de Sales had quite a temper when he was young. But over time he learned to convert his angry feelings into virtuous action. He knew that anger never leads to happiness. Worse, it causes tremendous harm to our relationship with God.

In these pages, the wise Fr. Morrow shows you how to pull the rug out from beneath your anger and reclaim a life of peace and grace. You’ll come to understand the root causes of angry behavior, ways to heal painful memories, and how to deal well with your hurts and humiliations.

You’re not likely to overcome blowups and anxiety through willpower alone. You need tools that help you cultivate the habits that lead to virtuous action. You’ll discover here simple ways to influence your behavior, control your impulses, and rebuild tattered relationships.

When you follow the simple advice offered in these pages, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you’re giving up all desire for revenge, forgiving those who hurt you, and finding peace in your life. You’ll also learn:

 

  • The difference between righteous and sinful anger.
  • Why saying “Well, that’s just the way I am” could cost you your soul.
  • The three root causes of every angry outburst
  • The five stages of healing hurtful memories.
  • How to discipline an angry child
  • The three actions every Christian MUST take to overcome sinful anger.

“Father Morrow presents a practical solution to a common problem. This book can make the world a much better place.”

Putting On the Armor of God

New book out on Amazon Putting On the Armor of God.

When we live in the Truth of God and his will, we are surrounded by abundant love.

We are given the tools such as: The Belt of Truth or The Shield of Faith, to stand strong against the evil forces and lies.

In Ephesians 6:10-18 we prepare ourselves for the battle from the words of St. Paul to the Ephesians.

Putting On the Armor of God is a great book for families to read together. Alongside with The Bible, parents can discuss each tool and what it means to them. The back of the book gives activities to incorporate each tool. You can even add your own fun ways to reinforce the Armor of God.

Great book for Bible study and PRE classes.
