by: Tycho Press
Product rating: 4.9 with 9 reviews
Learn how to be charismatic from a book with charisma
Being charismatic is the holy grail of personality skills. But charisma is also one of the most challenging traits to develop and hone.
Unlike other books on charisma, BOLD doesn’t tell you who to be. It tells you what to do and shows you how to do it.
BOLD features a comprehensive and actually habit-forming list of tips, tricks and techniques that will turn you into a social genius, a master of the conversation, and an expert in attracting other people’s praise. And with its visual format and use of cartoons, jokes, and quotes, you will enjoy coming back to it again and again as you become the very definition of charisma.

The importance of including spiritual practices in one’s healing and recovery program is explained, along with how easy it is to incorporate them in the process.

Crash the Chatterbox: Hearing God’s Voice Above All Others
by: Multnomah Books
Product rating: 4.6 with 350 reviews
Crashing the chatterbox = Overpowering lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God.
“I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember.
Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to. And once we learn how, we can switch from lies to truth as deliberately as we can choose the Beatles over Miley Cyrus on satellite radio.
This is the key to pressing ahead and doing God’s will anyway, even as you are bombarded with thoughts, feelings, and even facts about why you can’t do it.
I’m now awakening to the reality that we can access the power of God’s promises to constantly crash the system of our broken beliefs. I’m learning how to overpower the shouts of the Enemy by bending my ear to the whisper of God’s supernatural truths about my identity in Him and His strength in me.”
-STEVEN FURTICK, from Crash the Chatterbox
Includes discussion questions for individuals or groups.
Inside your head and heart is a chatterbox. Its lies are keeping you from realizing your God-given potential. But what can you do about them?
The Voice You Listen to Will Determine the Future You Experience

With personal stories, inspiring examples, and practical strategies, Pastor Furtick will show you how to silence the lies and embrace the freeing affirmation of God.
Learn how to live out God’s truth no matter what is going on in your life or thoughts.
Learn how to crash the chatterbox…and hear God’s voice above all others.
