Author Dr. Emerson Eggerichs.

MOTHER & SON: THE RESPECT EFFECT.  Sound Post hosted Dr. Eggerichs for several days of recording of this soon-to-be released book. Just as the New York Times bestseller Love & Respect message transferred family relationships with a biblical understanding of love and respect, Dr. Eggerichs now turns these principles to one of the most important and misunderstood relationships of all, the mother and son relationship. The definitive guide for a mom that wants to better understand her son and connect in a whole new way.

Author Dr. Emerson Eggerichs.

"When frustrated with an unresponsive child, a parent doesn’t declare, “You don’t love me.” Instead the parent asserts, “You are being disrespectful right now.” A parent needs to feel respected, especially during conflicts. When upset a child does not whine, “You don’t respect me.” Instead, a child pouts, “You don’t love me.” A child needs to feel loved, especially during disputes.

But here’s the rub: An unloved child (or teen) negatively reacts in a way that feels disrespectful to a parent. A disrespected parent negatively reacts in a way that feels unloving to the child.  This dynamic gives birth to the FAMILY CRAZY CYCLE."

Trends come and go in our culture and the church seems to follow.  BASIC is a seven-part series of short films that challenges us to reclaim the church as Scripture describes it to be.  This series speaks to those who have questions about the church and to those who may have lost interest in the church.

"If I only had this as my guide … if all I had was the Bible …and I was to read this book and then start a church, what would it look like?  Would it look like the thing that we've built here and all refer to as church? Or would it look radically different?"
