It was 1981-the year life blew up in eighteen-year-old Leslie J. Hollis' face. She couldn't get out of bed in the morning, and she cried all the time. If she had had the guts, she would have ended her life numerous times. The hurt and sense of worthlessness paled in comparison to death. It was also the year she met Kara, a talented psychotherapist.
Hollis knew life was not supposed to be characterized by constant pain, a longing to be accepted, and anxiety and worries that made it difficult to function. She was a ticking time bomb, imploding with distress. In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis shares the powerful life story of a young girl in search of her true self. She tells how she revisited the pain and isolation of her childhood to unlock the mysteries of the feelings she so desperately needed to escape from.
In "The Bedroom without a Door," Hollis helps those who feel vulnerable and defenseless and who have no sense of self. She shares how anxiety and pain, although overwhelming at times, can be confronted and treated. Depression and eating disorders can become a part of the past; a rebirth to a new, more productive life awaits. Learn to get out of bed every day and live, love, and laugh.

Perfection is in the eye of the beholder . . .
Proud of his reputation as a rogue, Justin Sterling intends tobe the first to bed "The Unattainable"--the Season's most luscious debutante--and win the wager that's the talk of the ton. However, he never expected the enchantress in question to be Arabella Templeton, who once stole his heart and owns it still. Now the notorious scoundrel will have to prove to her that his intentions are honorable . . . while protecting her virtue from every other rascal in London.
Arabella will marry only for love--and she does not need her childhood nemesis to act as her self-appointed guardian Though the arrogant cad seems sincere, she is well aware of his rakehell history and won't be swayed by his considerable charm and disarming good looks. For it would be pure madness for Arabella to ignore the voice of reason that whispers "beware " and heed instead a traitorous heart that insists Justin Sterling would make . . .
'Too long we have stood apart as a church and looked at children and teens and said, "We love you, we value you, but we don't need you."' Our churches have the power to establish a community of purpose that all people participate in. We can be the place where children feel most powerful, most seen, most discipled and most released. We can be the church that God designed. Parenting Children for a Life of Purpose is a practical and tested handbook exploring the possibilities for helping children to discover their specific gifts for what God is calling them to be, and how parents might partner with churches to enable children to discover their true identity and purpose in life and walk alongside them on the journey. Addressing issues of identity, relationship, purpose, power, love, calling and response, each chapter includes true stories and questions to help us to reflect on our own experiences.
