    Jan Silvious is the co-host (with Kay Arthur) of Precept Ministries’ national radio program, “Precept Live with Kay and Jan.” She is also a counselor and popular keynote speaker at church and women’s events. Jan has authored several books, includingThe Five-Minute Devotional and Please Don’t Say You Need Me: Biblical Answers for Co-Dependency. She is a frequent guest host on Moody Broadcasting Network’s national programs, “Mid-Day Connection” and “Open Line.” A graduate of Radford University in Radford, Virginia, Jan today lives in TN with her husband and has three grown sons.
    The world is filled with difficult people. It is impossible to avoid them. (You may have one, in particular, in your life right now.) In dealing with such people, we often try a number of coping strategies. Unfortunately, our best attempts at making peace often fail. This is because the difficult people in our lives are often what the Bible calls "fools." And dealing with fools requires a special kind of biblical wisdom.

    You've tried everything–from confrontation to passivity. You've found out what doesn't work; now discover whatdoes. Gain the tools you need to get along with others and conduct your relationships in a manner that honors God–and preserves your sanity!–inFoolproofing Your Life: Wisdom for Untangling Your Most Difficult Relationships. Learn how new insights from the book of Proverbs can help you respond to those relationships that seem hard to untangle.

      This book came highly recommended from a friend, and after reading just a few chapters I can see why. There are a few difficult people in my life who manage to "get my goat" on a regular basis. This book addresses handling just this kind of person. I had read some of the scripture passages Ms. Silvious references in the book and had never really understood them. Now I get it. It is insightful and addresses issues in a way completely different from other self-help type books I've read in the past.
