The way we think and feel about ourselves is one of the most important things about us—affecting our peace of mind, our creativity and our ability to engage meaningfully in the world. Perhaps most importantly, it impacts our relationships with others, including our relationship with God. These eight studies by Dale and Juanita Ryan are designed to help us take a transforming look at some key aspects of our self-image under the clear reflection of God's love.
