Recommendations - September 17, 2005

When my husband and I were going through a rough period with our teenagers several years ago, someone recommended that I check out the book, "Life Strategies For Teens," by Jay McGraw, son of the popular TV host, Dr. Phil McGraw. Mind you, this is not a book for parents, but rather for 'teens.'

What I really liked about the book was that it is worded in language that young people can relate to. This is definitely not a blame-your-parents or an oh-poor-me-book, but one that offers practical advice and sound words of wisdom, helping teens to stand their own.

There is another book I must also recommend. It is the ultimate self-help book which first requires our yielding to a power greater than our own: God. While the Bible tells the tale of past civilizations, we are also given the sweetest spiritual food: the keys to peace, joy and salvation.

Just as a key does no good unless it unlocks something, so too must the Bible be opened, read and applied to our hearts and minds so that we may live more abundantly.
