by Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen Kimberly Kirberger Mitch Claspy

Our lives are full of stories. Some of our stories are happy, some are sad and most of them fall somewhere in between. What's important is that we understand that they are for our learning. We usually look at our actions as good or bad, right or wrong, or experiences that place us above or below others.

If we can remember to love ourselves and have compassion for our "mistakes," then we can live with more gratitude and joy.

by Kimberly Kirberger

Love is often a mystery to teenagers - sometimes painful, other times glorious, always challenging. This book will help them understand and sort out their myriad feelings and experiences.

This blend provides a wide-ranging perspective on love and relationships. It will enable teens to gain wisdom and choose more wisely when making decisions in love and relationships. This book is designed to guide teens through the maze of love and relationships in a gentle, understanding and compassionate way. It isn't a dos-and-don'ts manual, but rather a how-it-is-in-love guidebook. Teens will come to treasure it as a wise and loving counselor and companion. On the roller-coaster ride of teen love, this is one book no teen can afford to be without. Check out the companion book, Teen Love : A Journal on Relationships, co-authored with Colin Mortensen of MTV's Real World/Hawaii.
