Do you feel stuck?

Are you trying to find a way to do the right thing?

Do you long to overcome sin?

Everyone faces barriers and difficulties at some time in life. Everyone has a history including mistakes and failures.

But sometimes you may feel as though you cannot go on. Or you may think that your choices are limited, your actions curtailed.

If you are ready to see true and lasting change in your life, Raymond Causey will help you find your way in his book Changing for Good.

He points to the truth--that there is freedom in Christ. And that there is power from the Spirit to overcome everything that holds you back.

"I love this book. It is anchored in the Scriptures and warmly illustrated with examples and word pictures that will move your heart to action."

Dr. Crawford W. Loritts Jr., Campus Crusade for Christ--USA

"We live in a world where no one wants to be responsible for his actions. Changing for Good shows how negative patterns in our lives come from not taking ownership of our decisions. Healing comes when we are honest with ourselves and apply God's Word to our lives and decisions."

Dennis Rainey, Executive Director, FamilyLife

"If you have made poor decisions in your life but want to move on, if you long for change yet wonder if it?s really possible, if you are looking for help that doesn?t mess around and is full of hope, then this book is for you!"

Susan Alexander Yates, author of How to Like the Ones You Love and Building Family Friendships for Life

"Changing for the good . . . requires a touch of grace and the commitment to put a series of right choices in motion. Causey shows you the why, the how and the way to make Changing for Good a permanent way of life."

Tim Kimmel, Executive Director of Family Matters and author of Little House on the Freeway

"Changing for Good is as refreshing as a cool rain in the hot, dog days of summer. We all struggle with the question 'Why haven?t I changed more?' So many answers are either trite, tiresome or invoke greater pressure and criticism. Causey writes with clarity and depth about the path for change. His courage to name the heartache and embrace the glory of hope is an invitation that will change your life. Drink in the rain of sweet change."

Dan Allender, President of Mars Hill Graduate School and author of The Wounded Heart
