RECOMMENDED READING & RESOURCES

I have been a wicked avid reader since I could read.  I've sorted down to just a very VERY small subsection of those books and people-resources I feel are timeless and most helpful within the categories below. I especially recommend the Couples/Relationship Section to those seeking Marriage Help.
