Regret-free Living by Steven Arterburn

Learn why we so often get stuck in regret, how it impacts our relationships, and how we can move forward into emotional and spiritual freedom! In this hope-filled guide, best-selling author and New Life Live! host Arterburn will help you release what was and focus on the path of what is and what still can be.

Anything Steven Arterburn writes is great, or so has been my experience, and this book is no different. The full title is Regret-Free Living: Hope for Past Mistakes and Freedom from Unhealthy Patterns. I admit that when I started reading it, I thought it was going to be all about marriage relationships, but it isn't. Though it does tackle marriage, it goes over how to live out any kind of relationship so you don't have regrets.

Using occasional stories about people, and himself, Arterburn assures that though his book is no quick-fix, we can live a life free of regrets, thought sometimes we have to fully face our past regrets, and deal with them, but he points out how unhealthy it is to stay focused on regrets.

I needed to read this, and I'm sure there are tons of people out there that need to read it. As Steven Artberburn points out, it is easy to get caught up with past mistakes, and focus so much on regrets that it hurts the relationships we have, even with God. So, if you find yourself living with regrets, check out this book. It just might help.
