"You have taught me to believe in myself and to take things slowly, one step at a time, keep sight of my goals, both short term and long term.

Your coaching style was both nuturing and motivating, you seemed to intuitively know some days what I needed most. Your caring and understanding was so appreciated and it came from the heart."

-Holly C.

I would recommend the Simplicity Course as an easy, practical way to start simplifying one's life. I especially liked the segments on Tolerations, Wardrobe, and Office and Paperwork.

Each day focuses on only one task, which is helpful to people who feel overwhelmed by the complexities of modern life and hardly know where to begin downshifting.

-Joan, New York

Beth has an uncanny way of, "reading between the lines" to see a person's heart. I appreciate how genuine she is.

I have already begun implementing her suggestions, and am dumbstruck at how well they are working. I am feeling so much more secure, and feel I am finally put onto a life path that will bring me joy for many years to come."

-Sue Halpern

I feel more focused and have an objective instead of aimlessly filling up the day.

-Shelli Segura

Tiny Change # 44: Focus attention on a special person, really connect with them

When was the last time you stopped what you were doing and really listened to your spouse, kids, friends, or family member? When was the last time you asked the important questions on their dreams, feelings, and fears.

Sometimes out of habit we converse about daily things like chores, kid's homework and what's on TV. We forget to talk about things that create intimacy. And we need quiet time for these types of conversation, maybe after the kids are in bed or at a lunch out together.

Pick one person this week to lavish attention on. Find out their favorite things. Surprise them with gifts. Listen and ask deep questions. Get to know them again.

How One Spouse Can Lead The Other Back To Intimacy
The Eight Stages of Intimacy
Sending Message of Love to Children

Who will you give extra attention to this week?
