Peggy Grose - Author of 'Love and Lemon Pie'
Unlike any other book I know about, this volume offers the nourishment required to sustain us both physically and spiritually. 'Love and Lemon Pie' is an extension of its author, because, like her, it is an authentic expression of love.

Nachos Recipe
The quality of our relationships is directly and totally determined by the quality of our communication.

If our words consist of blame, criticism, and sarcasm, our relationships will consist of fear, defensiveness, and stagnation.

If our words consist of love, appreciation, and encouragement, our relationships will consist of trust, openness, and growth.
