I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

Empower Your Kids to Be Adults: A Guide for Parents, Ministers and Other Mentors

Empower Your Kids To Be Adults: A Guide For Parents, Ministers, And Other Mentors - Donald M. Joy When I have a church, this book will be on a highly recommended list for parents, and will be required reading for staff. It is easily read but deeply profound. I only wish that the adults that were in my life when I was young had read this book. Joy's premise is that our society has created this teenage wasteland known as adolescence that is enfringing evermore into the twenties and thirties. Dr. Joy provides detailed practical solutions to empower kids to be adults.
