Changing The Heart Of A Rebel

Dr. S.M. Davis Changing the Heart of a Rebel
“No, rebellion is not normal. Yes, there is a solution! Many testimonies from around the world attest to the effectiveness of the Biblical principles expounded in this message.”

“Parents of younger children say that the message has helped them understand parenting so as to prevent problems with their children. Some parents say they listen to the message every few weeks to help them stay “on track” as a parent. Still other parents have found the message to be the “lifeline” to stop a descent into destruction and save the life and future of their rebellious teen. “Your video, ‘Changing the Heart of a Rebel’ did just that for our son! I only regret we didn’t hear it while he was in his early teens so we could have prevented the whole thing!” — TN Mother”

We highly recommend this message and have given it away in tape form to lots of parents. We were thrilled to find this online so that even more parents can listen to it.
