God invites us to share in His great adventures called 'Life'.  Have you found  Him yet?

Articles & eBooks From the Mentor's Notebook:

Susan and I have developed From the Mentor’s Notebook on Personal Growth Issues' because we deeply believe that the world needs answers and we need some of these Answers FAST.  We are in the business of finding solutions to problems of life for over 20 years now.

special dinner Yes, our site has a definite Christian slant.  This is for many reasons: Most of our deep roots in the Western culture come through the Christian faith.  Much of our legislature, laws and moral structure has been influenced and directed by our belief in a creator God.  In years past, this 'world view' has been behind our own professional ethos for walking this journey with others.   

Personally this is where we have found our answers to our own beliefs, meaning of life, marriage insights and facing our own personal crisis points.  So, we do offer this path because it does 'make sense on lots of levels'.  Please be open to these insights, you may just be surprised at what you find.

We have followed this mindset because this view works and has brought amazing hope and change to countless lives.  All we ask is that you give this Christian viewpoint the same opportunity to reveal insights to your own life challenges.  By now, we have heard thousands and thousands of stories.  It’s these stories and the practical solutions we want to offer you!

 We have presented Six main themes with their articles,

 4.  “Learn to Nurture Your Inner Health"

  The purpose of this eBook is to help you take the time and give yourself the tools and the space to reflectively stop and process life in a step by step method.  Here is where we learn to nurture the 'Inner Health'.

We begin by helping the will to be willing to change.  Before any change can happen you need to know where you are and where are you going.  Body awareness is also essential in establishing change.  As we continue the process, handling guilt or 'over-perfectionism' must be faced. 

Remember your emotions come into the picture too, along with the journey to understand the place of your spirit.  Finally, facing the question of where you go from here helps bring the balance to continue your inner growth.
