Here is a little more information about this week's prize:

I wish I had loved more.
I wish I had been smarter about money.
I wish I had thought about God more.
 
We all have regrets about the past. Many of them come from our attempts to fulfill unmet longings. Pastors and brothers Dave and Jon Ferguson call this back and forth between longing and regret the Sorry Cycle—and they want to help us escape it.
 
In Starting Over, the authors show us how to recognize specific regrets and then release them to God as we learn to see our regrets as opportunities to start over. Finally, we can see God redeem our regrets as He takes the worst things in our lives and uses them for a greater good.
 
Your regrets don’t need to keep you from the joy God has for your life. As you apply the recognize-release-redeem process to your financial, relational and personal regrets, you will find new freedom in living out your God-given dreams.
Drawing from scientific research and biblical truths, Dave and Jon give us tools to redeem our mistakes in five key areas: relationships, health, purpose, finances and spirituality. Along the way, they teach us lifelong skills for getting unstuck when regret threatens to trap us again. We also learn how to help others escape the Sorry Cycle.
 
It is possible to learn to love our regrets because through them we see God at work. We see that our weakness does not limit what God can do. Whatever regret you may have, God is big enough to redeem it!
