Her heart for Ever Thine Home is based on the familiar Old Testament instruction:
"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." (Deuteronomy 6:9, ESV)

Reviews - What do customers think about So Youre About To Be A Teenager (Repack)?
Realistic and practical advice, if you don't want your kids overly self-centered pleasure seeking Dec 19, 2006
This book is very good in being very frank about snares and traps that related to early teen dating. I don't want my girls date too early, because I don't want them get hurt. I do hope they respect God's design of this virgin psychology, that once lost, it can't be restored to the orignial sense, so why not heed all the warnings up front?
Makes you scared Jan 3, 2006
This book just basically tells you whats coming up in your future as a teen. That you gonna be confronted with drugs, sex, and other things, but it makes you sort of scared to be a teenager. Like it says you shouldn't hold hands because it leads to sex. Taking everything just out of proportion. Makes it sound like your going to burn in hell for doing the littlest things. I wouldn't recommend giving this to your child, or they might fear growing up.
