          Ask Dr. Phil and Robin

          October 03, 2006

          Dr. Phil has reinforcement today — Robin joins him to answer all your burning questions! They also have special help from several speakers from Women of Faith.



          Faith-Filled Women!

          Women of Faith began 10 years ago as a small group with a big vision. This faith-based organization encourages women of all ages to grow in faith and spiritual maturity. 

          “It is this massive, vibrant, passionate movement.”



          A Mental Prison

          Best friends, Barbara and Laurie, both suffer from agoraphobia. Laurie hates to be in crowded places, and Barbara can’t comfortably leave a five-mile radius of her home. It’s a vicious cycle they’ve been sharing for 16 years.


          Are the friends helping or hindering each other?



          A Clean Freak?

          Marilyn, one of the Women of Faith speakers, has been afraid of germs since she was in the 6th grade. She even gives her friends latex gloves to wear!



          What’s behind her fears? 



          A Wing and a Prayer

          Jodi wrote to Dr. Phil because she doesn’t trust her husband, Scott’s, ability to fly his homemade helicopter. Scott says his wife needs to be more trusting.


          “I feel like it’s his mistress, and that it’s going to destroy him.”



          Makeover Mom

          Jenni worries that her friend, Misty, a stay-at-home mom, never puts herself first. She says Misty’s closet is filled with hand-me-downs, and she hasn’t had a haircut in two years!

          See Robin’s advice to Misty.


          Ending on a High Note

          Closing out the show is Grammy Award-winning singer, Sandi Patty, who performs with her friend, Lisa. 



          “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
