From the Back Cover

A deeper probe into relationships starts with our heart's desires At last, a 'relationship book' that looks past what separates us to examine what connects us! Dr. Mark and Debra Laaser go to the heart of the matter. Instead of focusing on how to sidestep or compensate for perceived differences, they dig deeper, to the core of our souls, to examine how the basic desires and needs of all people make us more alike than different. The Seven Desires of Every Heart explores the common desires God gives you---to be heard, affirmed, blessed, safe, touched, chosen, and included. Using stories, Biblical references, and sound psychological principles, the Laasers explain each desire and show us how we seek it and what it feels like to have it truly fulfilled. You also will learn healthy ways to embody these desires in your relationships. You will be given the tools you need to start repairing and rebuilding relationships and developing new skills for creating emotional and spiritual intimacy.

Format: Hardcover
"The Seven Desires Of Every Heart" by Mark and Debra Laaser focuses on what the authors perceive are the 7 great needs of every human being:

1. To be heard and understood
2. To be affirmed
3. To be blessed
4. To be safe
5. To be touched
6. To be chosen
7. To be included

The authors show how important these needs are and how the reader may have them met in legitimate ways that please God.

The book is a good read and encourages and challenges the reader to think of the ways he or she tries to have these needs met and how their current methods are working.

Recommended.

The Seven Desires of Every Heart is a great book to use for a couple's small group study. I read through the book quickly and gleaned a lot, but collected much more valuable information when I slowed down and pondered the points the authors were making. These points are not to be missed to help you refocus on understanding your own needs and the needs of those you love. I look forward to working through the workbook that is coming out to help solidify these concepts in my heart and mind so they can become a compass for quality living.

An excellent tool for personal growth and understanding why folks react the way they do. We used it for our devotions each morning and found it worked well to stimulate thinking, interaction, understanding, and therefore communication. I would highly recommend this book.

I have seen, first hand, with my own eyes the result of the work the Laaser's do in the lives of people who's marriages are beyond hope. Their work did not "fix" the couple; it "changed" them.

If you are not dealing with marital issues but you still live on planet earth and have to deal with other people this is also a must read. CAUTION: Read this book slowly. Read it when you are fully awake; no TV on to distract you. Read it with a pen and paper at hand to take notes. You will get out of it what you put in.

The Seven Desires of Every Heart is one of the best books I have ever read for putting
words to the desires of my heart. It not only helped me understand my own desires and
wants but it has helped me understand others more. I found a lot of freedom in looking
at the 7 desires and how some of these basic needs were not met for me as a child.
I was able to begin to grieve the loss of them in my life and heal. I highly recommend
this book to others. I think it would be best read with at least one other person.

My husband and I have read plenty of traditional books on marriage and relationships but this by far exceeds them all. We read this book several months ago and refer back to things we learned from it all the time. It has helped us better understand ourselves, each other and a lot of other people we interact with on a regular basis. It's not an overstatement to say reading this book changed our lives!

Laaser has captured some real fundamentals of what we crave in our lives to feel whole and happy. With Christian based explanation and examples, one learns not only one's own missing elements of relations with others, but how to see and fulfill the needs of others. A primer for close and sustaining relationships.
