by Rev. Dr. Nicholas G. Louh and Dr. Roxanne K. Louh

Are you struggling in your walk with Christ? Do you want to rediscover your reason for living, the person you were created to be? Renewing You: A Priest, a Psychologist, and a Plan gives you the keys to unlock areas of your life that hold you back from fully experiencing the renewal and transformation God has in mind for you. Co-authored by a priest and a psychologist, Renewing You combines principles of spiritual growth with psychological tools to help you become your best self, fully connected with God's purpose for you.

Rev. Dr. Nicholas Louh is a priest, and Dr. Roxanne Louh is a clinical psychologist. In their book and in their ministry, the Louhs are a marriage of two different worlds and fields of study. Their work unites the seemingly opposing fields of faith and psychology to support the kind of inward reflection that leads to lasting outward transformation. For the last 10 years, Fr. Nicholas and Dr. Roxanne have worked together to help people seek the changes they want most for their lives.

"Spiritual power couple Fr. Nick and Dr. Roxanne Louh, a parish priest and psychologist, have combined their considerable personal and professional experience to create a book which naturally and seamlessly integrates psychology, physiology, and faith. The Louhs address the challenge of how to envision and create a life of purpose and satisfaction which soars above and beyond what we might imagine possible. Practical guidelines, proven methods, and various techniques provide a flight plan to conquer our ruts, inaction, excuses, and bad habits. Employing solid scientific information, relatable examples from daily life, biblical insights, and spiritual inspiration, the Louhs encourage us to climb into the pilot's seat of our own lives, to grasp the controls, to wing upwards, and to soar to the heights of the God-given potentiality within each of us." -Dr. Jeannie Constantinou, host of the podcast “Search the Scriptures Live!” on Ancient Faith Radio and professor and visiting lecturer on the Bible, patristic interpretation of Scripture, and early Christianity

"Building on the spiritual tradition of the desert fathers and mothers of the early centuries of Christianity, this exceptionally readable book refashions the wisdom of the Orthodox spiritual tradition for the noisy and often distracting world of day-to-day living. Renewing You provides a practical guide for personal and spiritual growth, with insights into recognizing and addressing the negative thoughts that dictate our internal spiritual disposition and external actions." -Dr. James C. Skedros, Michael G. and Anastasia Cantonis Professor of Byzantine Studies (Holy Cross), Lecturer on Greek (Harvard Divinity School)

"I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! It is spiritually uplifting, very funny, informative, poignant, touching, candid, thought-provoking, and challenging. When you read it, you can just feel the time, energy, and thought that they put into writing this book. And, boy, did they succeed. This book has an anointing on it. For those of you who are looking to be spiritually renewed (and who isn’t?), don’t look any further. This book does exactly what it says: It will renew your spirit and bring you closer to God. Amen." -Robert Krantz, actor and producer
