“Marilyn is an amazing coach with a deep understanding of relationships.  After struggling with a blended family, Marilyn showed me how to create a home that was more open and understanding.  Her practices for gratitude created a stronger bond between not only my husband and I but also my children.  I have come to see that even my children’s bonds with each other strengthened and they have been kinder and more loving to each other.  Marilyn’s course has created an invaluable impact on my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful!”
