IconI am an avid listener of yours. I have been listening for about 8 years now. I am 21 years old and in my senior year in college. Since I graduated from high school I have always known I wanted to be my kid's mom and my husband's girlfriend one day. The other day, Facebook led to a very interesting situation for me. My friend and ex-dance teacher from high school had written a "status update" explaining how hard it was to leave her babies on Monday morning to go back to work and asked if having a house was really worth missing her two little boys.

IconI want to bring to your attention a terrible event that happened in the Cincinnati area a few weeks ago and is still in the courts. In Finneytown, a church day care employed two individuals who were convicted of drugging kids so they would sleep and lessen their responsibilities, one child as young as 3 months. I am a bi-vocational pastor, who grew up in a single parent home and my life was Hell on earth for many years as I did not get the things I needed most as a child: loving parents and a strong father figure.

Icon...At first it was hard to let go of those so called "Disney Romances" to which I expect my life to be. Your book helped me to realize that in order to be happily married, I had to do my part to make my husband happy and everything else fell into place. More >>

IconI was watching/listening to a popular program on t.v. yesterday while cooking dinner for my family. A famous actress was on the program promoting her new book about women and relationships. I have admired this person in the past for advocating for children with special needs. Today, however, she was asked, "When did you know it was time to end the relationship?" Get this....Her response was "When it wasn't FUN anymore." REALLY????? More >>

IconAs I was sitting outside on my patio listening to your program and enjoying my afternoon, a woman called and she said she was an 'infertile woman'...I too have been labeled 'infertile', a term that is demeaning and has taken years for me to come to terms with. More >>

IconWe, Lisa & Greg, called you earlier today (9/27/10) and you hung up on us because you called me "whiny". Funny thing, I have never been called whiny my entire life and even my husband was surprised you called me whiny. I listened to your commentary afterwards and it started to sink in. But it was actually your comment to the lady with the husband who had the emotional affair that it really clicked. More >>

IconAll I can say is HALLELUJAH! to your article advocating putting conditions under which using ones donated organs would be permitted should we die and (obviously) be unable to speak for ourselves! I am a critical care nurse... and I have cared for countless patients who have either received a donated organ in the past and now that organ is failing due to them returning to their old lifestyle of drinking, smoking, using drugs, not taking care of their diabetes etc... or patients on a waiting list for an organ because theirs are failing due to the same lifestyle issues.. and I have come to the same conclusion: I would donate but I want to be able to exclude circumstances under which under which my organs would be donated.

IconDr. Laura you have been part of the equation in raising our daughter, Laura. She is now 11 and makes us proud every day in her maturity and thoughtfulness. Laura skates on a synchronized skating team made up of girls aged nine to eleven. At the end of the last practice I asked her why she had been talking to two particular girls off to the side. What she said made me realize she "gets it." More >>
