This book is amazing and insightful and everyone should own this. It should be laying next to your Bible! Practicing peace has helped me so much in every aspect of my life and Melinda, the author, is an amazing and powerful woman that has uncovered the truth of our purpose here and is helping to spread that to the rest of us. Through mindfulness and cultivating peace, we can change the world!  Thank you for writing this and following your dharma!  Buy the book and buy a few for friends and family, everyone could use more peace in their lives!

Hi Melinda.  Thank you so much for compiling all these helpful prayers and meditations. I feel that I am more at peace with myself and others since I’ve started reading this book.  I decided that I would like another copy of the 31 day prayers for peace to send to my sister in law.  I think she would benefit from reading the prayers, meditations and mantras. It is a beautiful book.

Your books have flown out of our office, please bring more!  Also, those who have purchased it constantly talk about the difference it has made in their life.  I love it too!  Being so simple, I am again quite established in a regular meditation practice.  Thank you for that!

I give this book as gifts. It is a perfect gift…I can’t imagine a better one. This gift of peace has helped so many of my friends and family.

I’m not much of a reader, generally I prefer online meditations, but the practices in this book have allowed me to engage in my own meditation practices, which have become quite profound. Peace stays with me all day long!

Best 10 minutes of each day. From all I have learned, no longer do emotions run my life. Inner peace is the steady guide. I’m all smiles!
