If you’ve found the last year challenging, you’re not alone. In fact, millions believe that this last year has been the most brutal year of their lives. Sadly, many have surrendered to a life of settling when we should be soaring—resigning when we should be renewing! That’s why Renewing YOU: A Priest, a Psychologist, and Plan couldn’t be more timely. Written by a husband and a wife—Dr. Nicholas Louh a priest, and Dr. Roxanne Louh a clinical psychologist—the Louhs are a marriage of two different worlds and fields of study—uniting the fields of faith and psychology for inward reflection that leads to lasting transformation. Nicholas and Roxanne Louh join Hank Hanegraaff to discuss their methods for personal renewal that combine principles of spiritual growth with psychological tools to help you become your best self, fully connected with God’s purpose for you and your life.
