"I had been thinking about journaling for some time, but lacked the focus to get started. Mari's 27 Day Challenge gave me the structure to get pen to paper. On a deeper level, the progression of the themes each day helped me to recognize the patterns that keep me from being my best. Whether I wrote hundreds of words or jotted down a few sentences, each days' work brought me great insights. An unexpected bonus was the Facebook group for participants. Great to be on the journey with others!"  - Jenny Beatrice
