I Deserve A Donut — by Barb Rav­el­ing

For this excuse and many oth­ers, the author pro­vides a set of ques­tions to help you slow down and think through why you’re being tempt­ed to break your bound­aries, as well as a list of scrip­ture to speak the truth to your­self.


The Renew­ing of the Mind Project — by Barb Rav­el­ing

Sim­i­lar in for­mat to I Deserve A Donut (above), but broad­ened to include non-eat­ing issues such as pro­cras­ti­na­tion, lack of con­fi­dence, per­fec­tion­ism, regret, and many more.

 


Note: The book links are Ama­zon affil­i­ate links. If you buy after click­ing one of them, I get a wee per­cent­age, but there’s no addi­tion to your cost.  🙂
