UNSOLICITED COMMENTS FROM ART OF DESIRE COURSE AND WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS: 

"Because of the impact you have had on my life and my marriage, I want to thank you for all you have done to acquire the knowledge and eloquence to be able to understand and explain these principles of relationships and sexuality to people like me. My life and marriage has changed incredibly for good. Recently my husband teared up in bed because he was so overwhelmed and happy with how our relationship is moving forward. He is a good, patient and loyal man. Bless him. It has taken me 38 years to choose him, and to own my sexuality. This happened surprisingly quickly once true principles were introduced to me. Those life-changing events came through you and the course I signed up for. Life is good. I don't know how to thank you."   --- R.L  Art of Desire Participant

 

"I absolutely LOVED this course!  It was truly amazing, Jennifer.   What you taught completely opened up my view of my sexuality and has been so liberating.  I have been more relaxed and present when I"m with my husband.  I have a lot to learn still but I feel possibilities in a way that I never have before.  THANK YOU FOR TEACHING THIS CLASS !" --G. B.  Art of Desire Participant

 

"Thank you so much for using the talents you have been blessed with for the good of so many women, and especially for LDS women. ... I have had a huge paradigm shift that has caused me to realize things that I didn't know about my sexuality. My goal is to own that part of me that I rejected .. and to be integrated and "whole".  I'm not sure how or if it would have happened without your guidance and willingness to use your time and talents to bless my life and the life of my husband through me. ... This experience was a sacred one for me and one I have been searching for, for a long time." .  ---E.A.  Art of Desire Participant
