Practical and Uplifting
"I just love your Big
Move book. I'm nearly a
mover; twelve years, ten moves. Three of those were cross country ones.
book is very practical, spiritual and uplifting.
"I have recommended
it to numerous students of mine during Coach U
classes as well as directly to many of my clients. I would highly
recommend this book to anyone contemplating a move or actually doing
-- Cynthia Stringer,
Your book was a lifesaver!
"I'm currently reading
your Big Move book and am so
relieved to have found my sanity!
"Your book touches on
each and every thought I've had including ones I
didn't know how to express. I kept searching the Internet
for sites or forums about relocating but they all referred to the tasks
at hand. I needed something to discuss the emotional process.

writing this lifesaver!"

Amazing ideas for moving with children
"Cathy, I just ordered
book and it was amazing!
what I needed to do to get our children, ages two and four, ready for
the move. Your idea of creating good-by rituals was invaluable. I plan
to follow two of your other suggestions -- revisiting the old
neighborhood and taking 'comfort possessions' in the van with us.
Thanks SO much for a great resource."

Found missing piece of the puzzle
"When I read this book, a big "AHA"
went off in my head. I've moved
significant distances six times in my life. The first five times were
fun, exciting, and a new adventure. The sixth time, all of that was
missing. After I read Cathy's book, the light bulb went off and I
understood what made that move different.
"If you are planning
a move, even if it's two streets up, this book is
a 'MUST READ!'"
