From long-harbored guilt to deep-rooted prejudices, many of us bear the weight of harmful tendencies in our daily lives. Whether we realize it or not, these things are actively holding us back from the happiness we deserve and long to attain. In this inspirational book, minister and counselor Hugh Prather provides a guide for mental cleansing. It is only in ridding our minds of the fear and judgments we cling to that we open the door for happiness.
The more we hold on to negativity, the less free we are to take hold of new possibilities. That’s why we need to meet every day with openness. But changing how we think takes practice. In The Little Book of Letting Go, Prather shares practical exercises and lasting tools that can help us let go of things that hold us back. By learning from Prather’s own personal experiences and adopting the practices he offers, we can find happiness, peace, and a chance at spiritual renewal.
The Little Book of Letting Go includes:
- A simple three-step process for letting go
- A thirty-day plan for spiritual renewal

What is the key to a successful, long-lasting relationship? It all begins with a simple promise. . .
I will never leave you.
While most books on relationships tell you why you should leave your partner, here is a refreshing look at the enormous gains that can come from staying. For more than twenty years, Hugh and Gayle Prather have been helping couples build satisfying, permanent, spiritually centered relationships. Based on their experience as counselors and the problems they’ve solved in their own long marriage, their book shares a message that dares to stand up against the tide of cop-outs and easy answers from most self-proclaimed relationship experts.
In this groundbreaking work, the Prathers guide you through the eight “mindsets” of permanent relationships and give you the strategies you need to solve the specific difficulties most couples face. They speak frankly and very personally about some of the toughest tests of relationships—including infidelity, financial crises, and blended families. Filled with wit, wisdom, and compassion, I Will Never Leave You is a well-needed tonic for overcoming the epidemic popularity of “separation psychology” and instead building lasting, mature, mutually fulfilling relationships that stand the toughest challenge of all: real life.
This beautiful timeless keepsake calendar, first published in 2000, found its way into the hearts and lives of thousands of people, many who have written to share how meaningful the calendar has been for them. Hugh’s powerful yet gentle wisdom continues to be as relevant today as when he first wrote these daily reflections. "365 Thoughts" is a treasure trove of daily thoughts that offers helpful, insightful reminders, encouragement, inspiration, and hope for each day of the year. And it’s perpetual, which means you can return to it and enjoy its wisdom day after day, year after year.
