“Rick Horne knows from life experience how to do what seems impossible—how to connect with teens. If you care about teenagers, if you work with teens, if you live with a teen, this book will help you reach their hearts.”
– David Powlison
, Adjunct Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Rick Horne has invested in teens his whole life. He has learned that he is more like them than unlike them. From years of first hand experience, he knows how to talk with them and his is not afraid of the tough ones. What you will read here is the wisdom of a man who has experienced the courage and hope that transforming grace can give to you and that hard teenager God has chosen for you to be near. This book is a call to action with biblical perspectives and practical steps that God can use to change the teenager and you as well.”
Paul David Tripp, Paul Tripp Ministries and author of Age of Opportunity: A Biblical Guide to Parenting Teens

“Rick Horne knows teens—the kind that won’t talk and those that won’t stop talking. If you have a teenager, you need this book. In fact, don’t wait for the teen years! Arm yourself now with the timeless truths from this book that counsels moms and dads with gospel-hope for teenage trials.”
Dave Harvey, Sovereign Grace Ministries and author of When Sinners Say “I Do”

“I can’t say if it’s because I’m a professional youth worker or if it’s because I’m not a professional counselor – maybe it’s all of the above – but, what I can say is that I found this book, Get Outta My Face, to be especially helpful. I’ve known Rick Horne and his ministry for a long time, and this book really demonstrates the values that give his counseling ministry such integrity. First of all, he’s down-to-earth and practical. Secondly, he knows real, live teenagers with real world issues. He’s not afraid to bump against the “messiness” of authentic relationships – whether those relationships are parent to child, youth worker to student or student to teacher. And, most of all, Rick treasures the wisdom that comes to us in God’s Word. He understands it to be more than just platitude and “niceness”, kind of a watered down Mr Rogers Goes to the Holy Land. The four process features of his Wisdom-Framed, Solutions-Initiated Youth Counseling (SI Counseling) offer parents, teachers, counselors and youth workers an excellent resource for dealing with some of the hard issues we have to reckon with if we really love our kids.”
Duffy Robbins, Professor of Youth Ministry, Eastern University, St. David’s, PA

Get Outta My Face journeys beyond the clash of teen’s desires for respect, privileges, freedom and “being treated better than they deserve” with the harsh realities of personal responsibilities under others’ authority. Drawing upon the lessons from the Biblical book of Proverbs, Dr. Horne teaches to gently come alongside teenagers, jointly uncovering what they don’t want, and formulating wise solutions they will desire to embrace. In this way students confront themselves and, with a mature mentor, engage to responsibly change self-destructive (or self-deluding) behavior. Over the last ten years I have admired the way Rick and Betty Horne have applied these truths in their own family (through some tempestuous years) as well as at the school and am grateful Rick has codified them for our instruction and the sake of the next generation.”
Carroll Wynne, Family Ministries Pastor, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia

    I had the privilege of editing this book as a freelancer, and working with Rick Horne was just a great experience. He was kind enough to let me publish his kudos on the Testimonials page at my site, kevinmeath.com. I think the book does a great job of teaching parents how to reach kids where they live without in the least watering down biblical truth.
