END BLAME, SHAME, AND OTHER WORD GAMES
Do you communicate with clarity or do you expect others to read your mind? Do people describe you as a good listener? Do you believe the lie that only some people are able to communicate well? Isn’t it time you discovered the truth that you can communicate with clarity and compassion?
Each of us longs for that safe serene place where we can find a community to connect with through conversation. Yet many times, our preferences and perspectives can cause confusion rather than clarity. Exchange your frustration for freedom. Discover your God-given worth and then unlock the potential in others by calling forth their unique value.
In Outside Words you will discover how to:
- Differentiate between people and what they say.
- Intentionally harness and direct the power of your words.
- Find the courage to relate with your whole heart.
- Bring peace into painfully irritating relationships.
- Take personal steps to honestly engage with God.
- Utilize laughter to lighten the soul.
“In her book, Outside Words, Dr. Rarick makes us look at one of the great casualties of 21st Century technology and politics. She will not allow us to look away. The casualty is this: the death of civil, thoughtful, respectful, and vulnerable conversation. In Outside Words, Dr. Rarick teaches us how to breathe resurrection onto the littered battlefield of noise vs. communication. Outside Words can bring listening to our ears, humility to our hearts, and caring to our voices. May it soon be so.”
