Book Review: Boundaries for Your Soul

Boundaries for Your Soul

Do your emotions control you or do you control your emotions? Maybe it is guilt or shame you struggle with. Maybe you struggle with fear or anger. Often these thoughts and feelings overwhelm us and create chaos within us. Boundaries for Your Soul by Alison Cook and Kimberly Miller, shows you how to calm just that chaos within.

The authors present a Christian approach to the Internal Family Systems Model of Therapy. This approach will help you to know what to do when overwhelming thoughts and feelings come. Whether it is guilt, anxiety, sadness or fear — the authors help you to welcome God into the hard and troubling parts of your soul. Then they help you to process these feelings and thoughts, and to move on.

Though I think this book has great potential, I have to be honest and say that I didn’t gain much from this book. Now, that might just be who I am. I’m fairly introspective and as a (speech) therapist, I’m used to processing thoughts and feelings that linger behind the scenes. But I think this book really does have potential and holds good points. Therefore, if you are into this sort of books, I think it might just be worth the read.

  1. It sounds as if this would be a good read for me to be able to help others to work through their feelings. I am 55 and have learned over the years to be fairly good at recognizing my own feelings…where and when and whom to to speak of them with and when to continue to internalize them. It would be a good read for me to be able to help others through this process.
