With the seemingly insurmountable pressures placed on families today, many parents lack the spiritual foundation and practical knowledge to chart a clear-cut course in child-rearing. Parents question whether nurturing their children's souls is even possible in the fast-paced materialistic culture in which we live. Utilizing the insight that springs from her knowledge of Torah wisdom, her personal experiences and the experiences of those she has counseled, Slovie Jungreis-Wolff, a longtime parenting coach and advisor to young couples and families teaches in detail how to approach the entire gamut of issues, with a special emphasis on strengthening the child's morality and character. Parents will learn how to: • Instill simchas hachayim, "true joy," in their children • Value chessed, kindness, in a self-absorbed world • Create a mikdash me'at, a home filled with calm and reflection • Teach children gratitude and appreciation • And much more... From discipline to sibling rivalry to effective communication skills, Raising a Child with Soul offers unique concepts and pragmatic ideas that can be understood and applied to both Jewish and non-Jewish households.

By understanding this interconnection, one can rebuild, renew, and rededicate their life to achieving its greatest potential. With the tools that are provided, Expressions of Oneness guides you to the essence of your soul as it is reflected in the primary relationships of your life. In particular, relationships in marriage, with children, and in spiritual community. Expressions of Oneness is a single volume containing three teachings from the Akashic Records. These teachings may be seen as an effort on the part of the Masters to establish a partnership in the communication that furthers a spiritual understanding for anyone seeking this universal knowledge. It is a book that is introductory in nature and offers simple ways to get in touch with the deeper mystery of the soul, through an examination of the role of relationships in revealing the true soul. As they are teachings, and as they are on subjects dear to the hearts of many, it is the hope that anyone seeking to live in greater awareness of the soul dimension of these relationships will find much in them that is useful, practical and inspiring in their day-to-day lives. Above all, these teachings are offered as cause for change, for greater understanding, and hope. For there is every reason for hope in every heart when one begins to hear the call of the soul, the divine Self that is the still small voice within
