After speaking on teaching and influencing young people at a student gathering in Texas, Pat Williams received an email from a high school coach who had heard his talk. In the email Coach McCall said, ?Every kid who's growing up is dying to live his life. But as people get older, instead of dying to life, they start living to die. In closing, Mr. Williams, I have a thought for you: What are you dying for?? Unable to escape this question, author and professional sports veteran Pat Williams invites readers to ask: When my days on earth are over, will I discover that I have wasted my life on meaningless things that have no lasting and eternal value? Most people are living for four things: fortune, status, power or pleasure. Just as there are four false reasons for living our lives, there are four true, meaningful and satisfying reasons for living, and for dying. These give purpose and value to our lives, so that we can know our lives have eternal significance. The heart of If You Died Tom

Anger begins as frustration, hurt or fear. When you don’t deal with these deeper emotions, they intensify and fester into resentment and rage—and the affectionate intimacy you long for in your relationship is driven away. Yet everyone experiences anger at one time or another . . . so how can you cope when it surfaces and strengthen the connection between you and your spouse? Popular relationship expert Dr. Gary Smalley suggests that you have three options when anger rears its head: You can stuff it, you can spew it or you can study it.With his pastor and good friend, Ted Cunningham, Smalley peels back anger’s layers to expose the emotional core of fury and bitterness. In the From Anger to Intimacy study guide and companion DVD, they invite you to go beyond the book and take a deeper look at the pain that lies at the heart of anger. Through six teaching and Bible study sessions, they show you how sharing that pain leads to deep intimacy and a marriage that will go the distance.
