The Teen Whisperer: How to Break through the Silence and Secrecy of Teenage Life

My son (now 27) is one of the teens that Mike Linderman "whispered" in his early years at Spring Creek in Montana (but not one of the kids in the book). Although I'm done raising kids, I just had to buy the book as soon as I discovered it (through an excerpt in a magazine.) I haven't finished the book yet, but I can say that Mike is as amazing in real life as what you read in the book. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has ki...

Beyond Sex Roles 3rd Edition

The argument in the 21 century church about keeping a woman in her (lesser) place is much like the pro-slavery argument in the church of 1850. The pro-slavery forces had seemingly irrefutable scriptural "proof texts"on which to base their claim. The argument was eventually settled when people began to look at the entire context of the Bible, and view those isolated "proof texts" through that greater lens. For all intents and purposes...

When Your Daughter Has BPD

“Daniel S. Lobel nails it. In clear language, he vividly depicts the struggles a family undergoes when a daughter has borderline personality disorder (BPD). Do not think drug treatments alone will suffice, or that a magical moment will change everything. What Lobel makes transparent is how necessary sound psychology is and how, properly applied, we now know enough to expect a happy outcome. Do not be intimidated by psychiatry or your...
