This is a Guideposts two-book volume-two outstanding books of inspiration and practical help from a best-selling Christian author.

Tough and Tender -

What does a woman want in a man? In today's fast-changing world Christian men are asking themselves that question more and more. And here Joyce Landorf provides both the "what" answers and the "how-to's" of buiding a sound Christian marriage.

Mrs. Landorf points men away from the "macho" image and toward the qualities Christ calls Christian men to have: decisiveness and strength of character combined with sensitivity and gentleness. All of these, she says, are the qualities your wife - your whole family - want and need. And with warmth, wit and scholarship she shows you how to develop them.

Changepoints -

The transition times. They come in every woman's life. Some them you look forward to: the time you get married...or the time you become a mother. Others you don't want to face: the loss of a job...or a crippling accident. But all of them require adjustment. In "Changepoints", Joyce Landorf discusses those changes - and shows you the opportunities they can bring. Using Biblical examples plus her own experience, she shows you how to deal with such changepoints as diapering, dealing with mothers-in-law, living alone, and many more. Not just "coping" but learning..growing in faith and spirit...eventually to look forward to change or opportunity.
