  1. Mary, no, absolutely not does your daughters boyfriend sleep in the same bed. I wish in my twenties my dad or someone spoke to me. I had girlfriends and slept(we were not sleeping ) with them at their parents house. It was disrespectful to everyone . They can sleep in separate rooms if that, Stay strong.

  2. Regarding caller #2, Norma. Please encourage her to establish a church family. My family has rejected me on and off (more on than off) for decades. Everything changed when I asked Jesus to adopt me into His family. The earthly family issues continue, but my outlook has changed 100%. A relationship with God through Jesus makes all the difference. He loves us with an everlasting love. My heart breaks for Norma, but there is hope and help in Jesus the ONE Who knows how to love us best.

    • Correction- Norma is not the caller I was referring to. Retracting the name and replacing with “Caller #2”- Alienated from family at Christmas.

  3. Is it Mary or Norma from Canada with the petulant, immature daughter? All New Life Members provided thousands of dollars worth of therapy in one short session. Priceless!!! She needs to apply everything you ‘gifted’ her. Good show.Thank you for the knowledge you so generously impart Merry Christmas everybody!
