[Carol Stream, IL]— Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. is proud to announce that The Hour That Matters Most, written by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott with Dream Dinners founders Stephanie Allen and Tina Kuna will be appearing at #1 on The New York Times Bestseller “Advice, How-to and Miscellaneous” paperback list on Sunday, September 25, 2011.

"We’re on a mission. We’re just getting started,” says Stephanie Allen, co-founder of Dream Dinners. “Our company is based on nurturing the nurturers, and we help time starved people serve 700,000 homemade dinners every month in America. We urge people to take our 90-day Dinner Time Challenge and make a proactive effort to gather around the table on a regular basis. The data shows, relationships do change-for the better."

In The Hour that Matters Most, Allen and Kuna share personal stories and anecdotes, combined with credible data and practical advice revealed by the Parrotts, a popular psychologist husband and wife team. The resulting book is a collection of amazing tips and insights for parents with a desire to slow down and make the most of their time around the family table. The book helps guide any family through practical conversation starters, meal planning, dinner time stories, devotion and more.

"This is very exciting. The challenge for most of us is the difficult demands on our time,” adds Tina Kuna. “We believe this book has wonderful tips to help families realize the return on investment when we ‘unplug’ and get proactive about the dinner hour and what’s really important-those you love."
