Testimonials and Reviews

Mindful Loving has become my life line after separating from my husband (6 years together). Jumped into dating with wrong mindset- now I’m back on track after reading the book. It resonates with everything I believe in and puts it all into workable practices for everyday living. Thanks for sharing your insights!
