" I just discovered you and believe it was no coincidence....
("A Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous." ~unknown). Anyway, I found your site in hopes of finding a beautiful (but short) quote on parenting that I can use in my Wedding Program. But I believe I found you for another reason. My Maid of Honor just died. Brenda was only 36 and leaves behind two beautiful children. I have two incredible personal stories and one poem regarding her transition and will share them with you, I promise sometimes in the next few days. Your web site was a blessing at the end of a difficult day. It must give you such satisfaction knowing God works through you. God's love and mine! "

" I just want to let you know that your website keeps me going!

I was recently diagnosed with Major Depression, all after my fiance (boyfriend of 5 years) and I broke up. Being only 19, that was 1/4 of my short life. I was a 2nd year Nursing Student, trying to plan a wedding, going to school full time, working full time, my family and I were living in an alternate house until our new house was built, (a 1 bedroom summer cottage for 5 people, and 2 very spoiled dogs) Needless to say, I thought I had no reason to live. I spent almost a month of my life in a psych unit, trying to gather any ounce of strength to go on with my life.

Sometimes, I took my days minute by minute. I kept myself going by knowing if I got through the previous 60 seconds, I might be able to get through another 60 seconds. I remember praying to God that I wouldn't wake up in the morning; that he would take me in my sleep to take away all of the pain that I felt. Somehow, it never happened.

After many reconciliations with my ex.... him coming and going as he pleases; I was having those depressing thoughts again. One day, a couple of weeks ago, I just decided to look up motivational stories on the internet. I found you. I am so very glad. This page gives me the strength to hold my head high, and be glad that I am alive. I finally had the strength after almost 8 months of my ex coming and going, I decided that life was to short to waste my time crying myself to sleep every night.

The story on the page, "A Story to Live By", that says it all. It opened my eyes. I am back in school with one more year to finish my nursing degree... and keeping my chin up! I thank you so much. Keep doing what you are doing.

Please tell all of those people out there going through a breakup, or a divorce, or a death.... whatever it may be; Time will heal... and God will heal. Let them know that somebody is always watching over them, and somebody cares whether it seems that way or not. Life is far to short to live your life in pain. Thank you again. Keep up the awesome work!!! "
--- Tiffany, Age 20 --- Indiana

" Still the most motivational site on the net - keep the good work up!"
--- Lockie Martin --- New Zealand

" Dear Marlene,
I just want to thank you for this amazing website, I don't think there is a better one. I always like to improve myself, to be a better person each day and your Inspiring Moments sure help me. I am a sixteen year old girl, and whenever I read your stories I always start to cry. They just touch my heart.

I think that the most important thing in life is being close to God, being true to yourself and your feelings, and improving yourself on a day to day basis. To me that is the pure way to live life. Once you have all those key ingredients everything else will flow.

Well thanks again for all those wonderful short stories and quotes, I'm sure you've helped a lot of people understand and realize to dust off their old hearts and be pure again. I believe there is a good in everyone, we just need to search for it. Hope to hear from you soon."

Thank you so much for making this site. I am a rhythmic gymnast and would one day like to be on the national team. I train up to seven hours a day as well as going to school. Sometimes it is very tiring and you don't know how you're going to get through another practice.

Your pages were even better than what I was looking for and your quotes have already helped me. Thank you so much!"

" Dear Marlene,
I can't tell you how much this website has helped me put things in perspective. Sometimes I get caught up in the superficial teenage world and it's nice to have a place where I can grasp what is truly important in this life. I'm going off to college soon and it's comforting to read and learn from other people's words of wisdom and inspiration. I've been compiling a list of my favorite quotes and sharing them with all my friends. I check back every few days to read the new ones. Thanks so much for creating such a wonderful site- your hard work does not go unnoticed."
