WOW! What a great 2 day broadcast on Dr. Dobson 's Family Talk! I really found the author, Rebecca Hagelin, very inspiring. She shared so many practical ways for parents to strengthen their families. As a teen, I heard a conference speaker who urged parents to tell their kids "yes" consistently so when they needed to say "no", their kids were able to respect them and accept their "no" answers much easier.
She also helped make Eckhart Tolle’s books, A New Earth, and The Power of Now, into bestsellers. Another example of spirituality is me, I always go to church when needed; I try to volunteer whenever I can to help the less fortunate and try to encourage or help out people whenever I can.

Her mom thought that every child had the right to an education, and her hole family encouraged her to learn all she could.
All of this is important because Jeannette has gotten past it so much, that she created this book to tell everyone about her story. That no matter what you grew up with, there is no excuse for turning out the way you don’t want to be. Jeannette is very optimistic about everything, and maybe even a little gullible. Granted she is just a little girl in the beginning of the book, but she always seemed to give her parents the benefit of the doubt, especially her father. When she
