Bring peace to your home, with savvy advice from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, from TLC's hit Shalom in the Home
Feeling overwhelmed by your family life? Whether you're in crisis or just wish you were closer, family and relationship counselor Rabbi Shmuley Boteach can help. Influenced by his own experience as a child of divorce, the host of the TLC series Shalom in the Home gets to the heart of family dynamics and individual personalities to help families build deeper, more loving relationships. His insights and encouragements help you cope with all the most common domestic issues: relationships, parenting, in-laws, neighbors and more. “I'm here to inspire people to be good people first, a good couple second, and good parents third,” says Shmuley. He illustrates how families can strengthen their bonds with unforgettable stories of families in crisis who undergo intensive counseling to improve their relationships and bring peace, or “shalom,” to their homes.

Oxford-trained theologian and philosopher and best selling author Rabbi Shmuley Boteach has become one of the country's most sought-after radio and television guests, having shared his wisdom on Oprah, Today show, The View, Good Morning America, CNN, and many others.

Shmuley writes twice-weekly columns for several newspapers and has won multiple awards and recognition for his public speaking and counseling, including The London Times' Preacher of the Year award.From Publishers Weekly:
Starred Review. Boteach offers readers realistic, effective and remarkably simple advice in this eminently readable guide to achieving a better family life. As part of his TLC television series, Shalom in the Home, the rabbi follows 10 families who have requested his counseling to resolve family dysfunction. From cheating husbands and raging wives to spoiled children and rebellious teens, Boteach underscores, with a smile and a calm voice, that the key to domestic peace lies in core values: taking responsibility, leading through inspiration, treating our spouses and parents as we would like our children to treat us, raising our children with patience, and loving them for who they are, not what they do. Perhaps most significant is the rabbi's admonition to remember that as human beings, every word and action results from the split-second choices we make. His mantra of "words which emanate from the heart penetrate the heart," works well, and his genuine desire to effect change is evidenced by his frequent admissions of qualities he lacks, as well as a willingness to push the envelope and risk the wrath of the profiled families and the criticism of his fans. Boteach's traditional wisdom will find approval with religious enthusiasts, but his candor and commitment will earn him the respect of anyone who values a peaceful home. (Mar.)
