John Eldredge is an author (you probably figured that out), a counselor, and a teacher. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own hearts in God's love, and learn to live in God's Kingdom. John grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles (which he hated), and spent his boyhood summers on his grandfather’s cattle ranch in eastern Oregon (which he loved). John met his wife, Stasi, in high school (in drama class). But their romance did not begin until they each came to faith in Christ, after high school. John earned his undergraduate degree in Theater at Cal Poly, and directed a theater company in Los Angeles for several years before moving to Colorado with Focus on the Family, where he taught at the Focus on the Family Institute.John earned his master’s degree in Counseling from Colorado Christian University, under the direction of Larry Crabb and Dan Allender. He worked as a counselor in private practice before launching Ransomed Heart in 2000. John and Stasi live in Colorado Springs with their three sons (Samuel, Blaine, and Luke), their golden retriever (Oban), and two horses (Whistle and Kokolo). While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. He loves the outdoors passionately, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression “far out” way too much.

A very dear friend recommended this to me, and though it seemed to a bit hokey at first, I'm really glad I stayed with it. Reading this book helped me understand some of the reasons I do the things I do. I did the companion workbook, which uncovered some uncomfortable memories, but getting to the ro...

I started reading this book several years ago and then it got put on hiatus. My guess is that it was by divine appointment. This book was an excellent reminder to me that our spiritual journey is not just a laundry list of do's and dont's and theological facts--it is indeed a soul stirring romance. ...
Crystal Starr Light, Raging Snarky Stormtrooper Pony
When I was a little girl (okay, not that little, but younger than I am now), I would imagine myself being a lawyer or a Jedi. I would save the world from criminals, uphold the ways of the Force, and travel the world (or the universe on my own starship). Eventually, the hero of my dreams (either dete...

I have to say, I understood what he was trying to get across, but still felt very lost. I couldn’t connect with a lot of what he was saying. So either I’m pretty well off, or super screwed up, lol.
