Customer Testimonials




I just wanted to send a note and give thanks for you on your special day. What you have done for me is unexplainable. I will do my best to put into words how truly grateful I am, but know this, words aren’t deep enough when it comes to how truly grateful and appreciative I am for your presence in my life.

When I first came to you, I felt hopeless. I honestly just thought that I would come and find a way to deal with my depression and my hopeless feelings. That you would be able to teach me how to fake it and just push through them. What I received from you (and thankfully I allowed it in to my consciousness) was much, much more. The first time I heard your story, I thought, well she must be nuts! I don’t see how you could go through all of that depression and suicidal stuff and come out “happy.” Your happiness must be fake right?

Boy, was I wrong!! Everyday, and in every way Rhoda, you are a positive example to me of how I can, if I choose to, live my life in a fuller, more active, and more aware way than I EVER have before. And who knew, it’s not a front!

You have been a light to me, a shining example of the bad not being so bad, and the good being even better than I imagined. I am eternally thankful. You have shown me just how important I am to myself, my family, my friends and my loved ones. That regardless of the internal struggle, I am loved beyond means, and that I truly bring something to the table that people need and want. You have allowed me to realize my passion for service, how important it is for me that I am in a career that loves and serves others, whether it be serving coffee or sharing in a meeting. I am loved, loving and lovable. Thanks to all you have taught me, I know this as fact today. You have also helped me to realize my deep love for animals. One of the things that originally kept me coming back was that I got to socialize with all your awesome animals, and I felt comfortable knowing that you were also an animal lover and a teacher through those who love us unconditionally. I have learned so much from all of the wonderful animals in my life in the past 3 years, especially my sweet Bella and Zig Zig.

I have grown beyond my wildest dreams in our small groups. It makes me feel so connected to the core of life, why were all here. We are all just working through life, not letting life work through us. Not being a victim, but instead finding a way to live through our experiences and find lessons and means of service through them. Your leading of these groups has helped me grown in tremendous ways. I am so thankful for our small group of Tracy, Keith, LaVonne, and Celia.

You truly believe in what you teach, and I know that’s what makes you such a great teacher. I came to you hating God, hating myself, and hating my situation. My relationships in all of these areas have improved dramatically because you showed me that it’s not the situations reacting to me, but me reacting to the situations. Thankfully I have control over those reactions. I now know an amazing new God, one who loves me, regardless of my sinful nature, who is not human, and who doesn’t have sick thinking, like I still do sometimes. He is bigger than anything, he is my army in times of battle be it against myself or against others in my life who may upset me. He is such a gracious God, father and author of my life. Thank you for re-introducing me to him. I am so thankful. Yaweh Saboath.

As I move on in this next step in my life, I feel so ready. I feel so prepared. A large part of this readiness is due to what you have done for me these past few years. Through all that I have endured, good and bad, you have been an outstanding co-pilot.

Walking into your living room on that sunny day in Sept 2010, I had no idea what kind of gift you were about to give me, and what gift I was going to allow myself to receive.

My journey with you these past 3 years has been nothing short of a miracle, and I am eternally thankful for your love, support, guidance, direction, uncondition-ality, positive example, and true spiritual passion for service. You have helped me change my life beyond anything I could have imagined. Thank you, Rhoda.

Have the happiest of birthdays. I love you so much.
In gratefulness,
