Just Some Testimonials.....
"I am learning to advocate for my kid and make virtual school accessible for him. I like the format of this Journal. I have been able to apply it all in real time! The Journal takes all these huge issues and breaks it up into understandable pieces. It is very challenging but approachable. Each day built off the next and I often found questions would linger in the back of my mind all day. This applies to all relationships across the board from parenting, my family, my friends, community. It's helped me kind of zero in where my power is and how to influence change." – Kristy
"It’s really a layered and rich process of discovery. I am only on day four but I am appreciative of what is being revealed." -Stephanie
