ABOUT THE BOOK “I am convinced that if we as a society work diligently in every other area of life and neglect the family, it would be analogous to straightening deck chairs on the Titanic.” - Dr. Covey The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families takes the 7 Habits he teaches in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and applies them to the family. After many clients and others that the author knew approached him about how the 7 Habits would play in the family environment, he decided to create this book. This edition of the 7 Habits became a New York Times bestseller in 1997, when it was published. According to Dr. Covey’s biography, it continues to be the number one hardcover book on the family. (The 3rd Alternative Bio) Dr. Covey shares in a personal message at the beginning of the book that it was difficult for him to decide whether or not to include all of the stories and experiences from his own family that he was considering. He battled with this because he didn’t want to come across as a know-it-all, but the author also knew what had truly worked first hand for them and wanted to share that truth with the world. Much of the book has stories from his wife, including a foreward from her, and from their nine children. MEET THE AUTHOR Sheri Franklin has been writing for 27 years, blessed with inspirational influence that pours into her pen. Sheri is a trained opera singer. She will stare at paintings for hours and wonder what a beautiful rock would taste like if she ate it. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Pilots use a flight plan for every flight they have scheduled. However, due to weather, other planes flying in the area, information from traffic control towers, and even faulty equipment, the pilots must deviate off course much of the time - in fact, ninety percent of the time. However, this does not change the original flight plan, which they consistently refer to and return to as soon as conditions permit. This theme is used throughout the book to show how having a vision in mind with one’s family is important, but it is also crucial to remember that one must remember that much that life will throw our way will interfere with our goal. Dr. Covey explores how life has changed in the thirty years prior to when this edition of 7 Habits was published, in the 90’s with crime, divorce, health problems, scholastic achievement, single family homes, teen suicide and sexually transmitted diseases have all increased. He gives the 7 Habits and the additional tools in the book as the solution to society’s ills and how to protect your family from becoming a victim to them... Buy a copy to keep reading!

TEACHERS GUIDE SEXUALITY EDUCATION is, basically, CHARACTER EDUCATION, which in turn is founded on human dignity and encompasses formation in moral standards and human conduct. This book is intended for educators other than the parents. It is intended for use in the classroom, in parish halls, and in other venues where educators strive to shape minds and hearts to make good and responsible day-to-day decisions on key aspects of life. This is the second of an 11-volume series, the first dealing with the basics and nuances of sexuality education; the third addressed to parents; and the next eight intended as textbook series for Grades 5 to 12 (ages 11 to 18) of the K to 12 program. The book series in SEXUALITY EDUCATION is probably a most potent tool to help young people and their parents and other educators, regardless of creed, culture, and social status, to appreciate love, life, and everything in between.
