    Bonding with your Teen through Boundaries

    Bonding with your Teen through Boundaries, by June HuntParenting is Tough. Raising teenagers can present difficult situations that call for correction. As tricky and painful as discipline is, it’s also a unique opportunity to grow closer to your teen. Step-by-step, this book shows how to establish boundaries with teens in four areas – at home, at school and in their personal and social lives. By tackling 38 topics ranging from breaking curfew to backtalk to bullying, each small chapter presents practical “What could I do/What could I say?” coaching strategies. These are parent-tested steps that really work!

    Dysfunctional Family: Making Peace With Your Past

    Dysfunctional Family: Making Peace With Your PastFar too many families today can be described as dysfunctional. Boundaries are bulldozed, rules are ransacked, and dysfunction produces more dysfunction. And because it is true that with children more is caught than taught, if you were raised in a dysfunctional family, you are likely raising your own children the same way.

    Do you recognize these symptoms?

    • Overly possessive or fault finding parents
    • Poor organization or overly rigid structure
    • Inconsistent and indecisive parents
    • Emotionally abandoned children
    • Overly rigid structure or lacking parental authority

    In this 96-page book, June Hunt explains the signs, characteristics, and impact dysfunctional families have on children’s attitudes and behavior—revealing the ugly truth that dysfunction often produces more dysfunction. She presents practical ways to break the generational cycle of dysfunction—giving those who come from this background hope and equipping those who minister to them (pastor, church leader, or friend) with practical insight on how to help.

June HuntThere are a lot of call-in radio talk shows  and many of them offer advice to people with problems. Listeners who tune in to Hope In The Night, however, quickly realize that this program is one-of-a-kind. It began in 1996, when June Hunt, founder of a Dallas-based ministry called Hope for the Heart and host of a 15-minute daily radio broadcast show, was persuaded to test the concept of a live, late-night program on a single Chicago radio station. From the start, it was very different from other counseling talk shows  and it was an immediate hit with Chicago area listeners.

Today, Hope In The Night has celebrated 10 years of ministry and has been nominated as the National Religious Broadcasters "Talk Show of the Year" in 2007. Read more

"How Can I Partner with Hope For The Heart to continue to Provide God's Truth for Today's Problems?"

Although June's focus is on counseling rather than on fund-raising, the costs of producing daily broadcasts and delivering them to broadcast outlets around the world can seem overwhelming− and radio outreach is just one of the ministries of Hope For The Heart. We welcome your support − as a Partner in Prayer or through your financial gifts − to come along side of us as we move deeper into territory held by the enemy and push back the darkness.
