IconAll I can say is HALLELUJAH! to your article advocating putting conditions under which using ones donated organs would be permitted should we die and (obviously) be unable to speak for ourselves! I am a critical care nurse... and I have cared for countless patients who have either received a donated organ in the past and now that organ is failing due to them returning to their old lifestyle of drinking, smoking, using drugs, not taking care of their diabetes etc... or patients on a waiting list for an organ because theirs are failing due to the same lifestyle issues.. and I have come to the same conclusion: I would donate but I want to be able to exclude circumstances under which under which my organs would be donated.

IconDr. Laura you have been part of the equation in raising our daughter, Laura. She is now 11 and makes us proud every day in her maturity and thoughtfulness. Laura skates on a synchronized skating team made up of girls aged nine to eleven. At the end of the last practice I asked her why she had been talking to two particular girls off to the side. What she said made me realize she "gets it." More >>

Icon...I just want to share a few of choices I have made as a father. I am married with two teenage daughters. I have a full time job but I do the majority of my work at home. I arrange my day so I can take my kids to school in the morning and I am there to pick them up in the afternoons. I was a PTA father, taught chess at their elementary school, helped them with their homework and made a home cooked meal almost every night. More >>

IconA few days ago, while driving I heard a portion of a phone call where the lady was looking for motivation to lose weight. Your answer was no motivation works. Eventually it is a matter of character. I am paraphrasing, but essentially you said an individual has to decide whether they keep faith with themselves or not. A person has to make a choice to be honorable and to close that refrigerator door. You mentioned how awful we feel when we cheat, and that we are cheating ourselves. I don't want to be the type of person who cheats! More >>

IconThe last (soon to be) 12 months have altered me in a way that I never imagined possible. I knew that parenthood would change my lifestyle, yes. I had no idea it would have such a drastic effect on my entire being. My view of myself is altered forever. I could never have believed there would someone in the world more important to me than absolutely anything else. My life revolves around how she's feeling and how I'm doing as a mother. My self image is no longer based on how good a friend I'm being or how popular I am or even what other people think about me. Am I a good mother? Am I doing the best job I can for her? Does she know how fully and completely I love her? My self worth is entirely based on those questions. There is a tiny human being holding all of that in her little hands. More >>

IconI have to tell you how you saved my life. I am a stay at home mother of 3 small children and by some miracle I married a very good man. I have spent the last 10 years of my life angry and self destructive. I lived my life desperately trying to fill the silence both emotionally and physically. Any moment of peace would force me to look at myself and who I'd become. More >>

Icon...Just yesterday I was reading through your book "Stupid Things Parents Do to Mess Up Their Kids" (aka: "Parenthood by Proxy"). In the introduction, under the heading "Just plain 'Loco'", Lisa McNally wrote to you about two-income families. These "families" as they are labeled these days, are nothing like what the word was designed around. Too busy to stop and smell their greatest opportunity drift by, these parents strive to satisfy themselves while providing physically for their children. But what about all the other needs our children have today? More >>

IconI'm 24 years old and finally, I'm doing the right thing. And the thing I'm doing that is oh-so-right is I learned to listen and respond to feedback, in all its forms. I was hoping that you could share this with your listeners, because it's a life lesson that I am so grateful to have learned early in this life. As a child, I was afraid if I did things wrong it meant a host of awful things I was stupid, I didn't listen well, I was annoying people, I was high maintenance. More >>

IconYears ago on your program you described how to write a letter to an adversary so THEY would know what the text REALLY means, but anyone else reading the correspondence would think the writer was being sweet. Here's the story: A nasty, aggressive neighbor was putting evil notes in the rural mailbox attached to my fence post. More >>
