The Heart of the Courageous: The gift of love-based anger is an outgrowth of the author’s highly successful workshop. The book and workshop offer an effective approach to resolving hurtful, fear-based anger for those courageously seeking change. Kuzmich and Stewart explain the six laws of love-based anger to help you:
- Identify blind spots regarding your anger styles
- Recognize your role in hurting others
- Respond rather than react to triggers
- Restore damaged relationships
- Add new beliefs to make effective, lasting change
- Let go of control and trust the process
The Heart of the Courageous helped me discover where my anger was coming from; why it surfaced and how I could turn it into something that is love-based. - Dr. Dan Erickson, Founder of People Matter Ministries, Author of Finding your Greater Yes and God Loves Do-overs
Everyone has feelings, needs, and voids. In order to rediscover happiness, you have to deal with the unhappiness. “Who did God originally intend you to be? What are the true desires of your heart?” I was excited and motivated to find answers. - Ryan Lefebvre, Broadcaster for the Kansas City Royals Major League baseball club, reflecting on his coaching with Kuzmich in his book The Shame of Me: One man’s journey to depression and back
I plan to no longer invalidate my anger nor obey it. I have choices based on who I am instead of how I feel. - Dan Chaverin, Executive Pastor – Westside Family Church
