Developed by Richard Ross, Southwestern Seminary professor of student ministry and co-founder of True Love Waits, with Gus Reyes, a Hispanic Youth Specialist with the Baptist General Convention of Texas, 30 Days: Turning the Hearts of Parents & Teenagers Toward Each Other is remarkable resource designed to re-open the lines of communication and help families rebuild and even deepen their relationships.
Starting with just ten minutes each evening, parents and teens find a quiet place and, by candlelight, open and alternately read five cards, each designed to build heart connections. One mother called it "an incredible experience; eye-opening, tear-jerking, and heart-warming all at the same time."
Can 30 days really make a difference? When it comes to building relationships between students and their parents, sometimes 30 days may be the best way to start. Why does it work? The authors drew not only on their extensive professional experience, but also on their personal desire to better relate to their own teenage children. So, as the title says, this resource turns hearts, because it came from the heart.
