Love, Romance and Responsibility - Falling IN Love Again

Falling out of love with a partner can happen when responsibilities consume time, energy and resources. Get those "in love" feelings back into your relationship. Learn skills to keep the romance alive when Marilyn presents to your group.


Adult Children Of Alcoholics - Choices for Change

Dysfunctional families, including substance abuse families, have denial as a major coping mechanism. This defensive adaptation helps people live as if their world is OK when it is everything but fine. This presentation helps participants overcome denial and see how choices for change can be made. Suitable for small retreats or large conference keynote presentations.


Parenting for Self Esteem

Today's children are living in a constantly changing world where influences from peers, the media and even family members create expectations and influence behaviours. Parents and teachers can learn to teach children that they eventually must take the responsibility for their own lives. Setting this goal of self responsibility, called maturity, will create the courage to push through the difficult stages of growth and development. This presentation is suitable for teachers' professional development days and parenting courses. Consider this for your church or school now!


Personal Growth Through Travel

Based on Marilyn's self help memoirs this presentation suits audiences of all sizes. Issues of maturity, self responsibility, infidelity, travel with children, solo travel, building relationships and self discovery are explored with humour and candid revelations. Excellent after a group has read books from the Questing series and for those who would like to leave a legacy by writing their own memoirs.
