Free Yourself, Be Yourself
Find the Power to Escape Your Past
ISN'T IT TIME YOU SHED PERFORMANCE-BASED LIVING? When Alas Wright's childhood family collapsed, he took the blame. As a wounded fourth grader, Alan secretly wondered, What's wrong with me? How can I become loveable again? Unconsciously, he made the most devastating--and common--of vows: "I'll do whatever it takes to be loved." Excelling in sports, earning straight A's, and well-liked by everyone--except himself--Alan had made a childhood commitment to performance-based living, which led to a series of grown-up problems. Hyper-sensitivity: Why am I so bothered by every criticism? Self-Doubt: Why do I always question my abilities and motives? People pleasing: Why do I have a hard time saying no or facing conflict? Fear of failure: Why do I feel like I have to be perfect? Self-sabotage: Why can’t I celebrate my gifts and accept God’s blessings? Laugh, cry, struggle, relate, and be set free as Alan Wright invites you to discover his simple solution—how to release your pride and shame to Jesus, banish fear, and accept unconditional love and acceptance to live as you were meant to live.

A Childlike Heart
How to Become Great in God's Kingdom
To all of us too-serious, on-the-edge, busy-and-preoccupied adults, Alan Wright offers a reminder of Jesus' words regarding the heart of the child: "Of such is the kingdom of God." In this new trade-paper edition of A Chance at Childhood Again, Wright reveals how we can recapture the unbridled freedom we once relished. As he watched his own son discover the world for the first time, he realized that the carefree, wonder-filled attitude of youth is possible in adulthood. As we look back with nostalgia and appreciation at the simple pleasures of our growing-up years, Wright explains, we will rediscover how our days can be characterized by a spirit of adventure and wide-eyed joy in the Lord.
