Our Client's Thoughts About This Course

Thank you for putting this into a CE course. I had this book on my shelf and never read it; so sad I waited this long. It was enlightening and will be a major resource for integrating its concepts into my work. - Sharon, LCSW, Illinois


In 'To Be Told: Know Your Story, Shape Your Future', Dr. Dan Allender shows people how to read the stories of their lives. This text will help them understand the meaning God has written into the details of who they are. They will then be able to share their lives and receive the stories of others at a deeper level.

Dr. Allender proposes that God invites each person to coauthor his or her own story (life). However, it starts with reading ones past. This book helps individuals identify the themes in their lives and they will receive guidance in writing themselves a better future.
