A MUST READ FOR ALL PARENTS OF PRE-TEENS AND TEENS!
Someone once defined a teenager as a person who watches his weight by giving up candy bars before breakfast. Anyone who can hear a song by Bruno Mars played three blocks away but not his mother calling from the next room. A whiz who can operate the latest computer without a lesson but can't make a bed. A seeming expert on everything, yet never seems to study. A connoisseur of two kinds of fine music: Loud and Very Loud. And a romantic who never falls in love more than once a week.
Pre-teens and teens are that and so much more. They are our children, created by God and loved by us. They have passions, plans, personalities, and God-given gifts and abilities. Raising them is both a challenge and a blessing, and helping them to navigate the pitfalls of adolescence is a parent's most pressing task.
How do we help our pre-teens and teens handle peer pressure, the culture's sway, the desire to date, and all that seeks to influence their hearts and minds? Answering that question is the focus of Mark David's Richardson's parenting series.
In this fourth book in the series, Mark tackles the touchy subject of teen dating. In this important installment, parents will:
~Understand more about teen dating
~Discover the potential pitfalls that can have life long consequences
~Gain knowledge and insight into how to best discuss dating with thier teens
~Be given practical tools to ensure the safest dating experience when the time is right
Refuge on Leebrick is the fourth book in The Hills of Burlington series. It is a story of family, both the one we were born with and those we meet along the way.
Tom Holland arrived in Burlington after making a couple of life-changing decisions. One of them he would never regret... the other he was still wrestling with. He'd been considering that he needed a change in his life... his career but hadn't been able to push himself into action. After the last couple of weeks he realized it was no longer a consideration, it was a necessity.
When he chose Burlington as his destination it wasn't with a dart tossed at a map. In large part it was because the city was the new home of an old friend... his college roommate. A man who wasn't just a good friend but a trusted one as well. Yet it was something more than friendship, more than needing a new job... there was something more that drew him to Burlington.
When he showed up at his old friend's office things began to happen faster than he could have ever anticipated. By the time he'd walked out of Jake Kyle's office he had a job, an invite for a hot home-cooked meal that night, and within days he had a place to stay... a house rich in Jake's family history. A place his family called the Summer Street house.
It wasn't long before Tom was drawn into the growing circle of Jake's family and friends who had also come to Burlington in search of something different than what they'd left behind. He became part of the seemingly regular gatherings at his cousin Mary's kitchen table where the coffee pot was always full and the conversation rarely stopped. It was there he learned the answer to one of the many secrets of the Summer Street house. One that answered many of his own.
Yet despite what it was that had drawn him to Burlington and the many questions still to be answered, and that while the house on Summer Street may still hold many secrets... he knew it ultimately came back to one thing. Family.
Refuge on Leebrick is a ...

My daughter Sarah is 25. She is non-verbal autistic. When Sarah was first diagnosed, I felt devastated. The fear of the unknown as to what lay ahead was overwhelming.

These essays reflect on my years as a missionary kid in Malaysia and in the United States in the 1960s and 70s. My autobiography In Memory Yet Green has the story of my childhood at boarding school and the boarding home. In this book, I go deeper into how my childhood experiences shaped me. Not all of us who trod my path as a missionary kid triumphed.
A point Mary Trump's makes in her new book Too Much and Never Enough is that her uncle President Donald Trump has been institutionalized his entire life and never got the appropriate grounding that comes from having at least one available parent and not have sufficient mirroring with a parent figure.
The children of missionaries have often had too much entitlement and privilege and not enough normalcy and love. I explore this theme in Crying for My Mother.
