"My Healing Journal created a safe place for me to reside while trying to cope with a frustrating situation. It was the best kind of therapy and it was there for me any time I needed it. No doctor's fees. No waiting. No prescription needed."

~ Kim White

"I had been journaling off and on over the years, but until I read Mari's take on its benefits, and her enthusiasm, I didn't commit to delving into the depths of 'Writing for the Health of It!' Overcoming resistance to expressing feelings on paper was a big step for me. Mari's website helped me to stop thinking about writing, but to go ahead and 'just do it'!"
