You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

“Gratitude: 'Tis the Season” Sunday October 24, 1:30PM PST– LATalkLive

This Week’s Guest: YOU!

Thanksgiving is the time of year we stop and reflect on all the things for which we are grateful. And while practicing gratitude is a year round job, let's take advantage of the opportunity to formally reflect on the people, things and experiences that bring joy, appreciation and love into our lives, our relationships, and our world.

I will bring my list and invite you to call or write in and share yours. You just might be surprised at some of the things that made our lists this year!

And for those of you that want to read this week's article on gratitude, go to www.JulieOrlov.com/Settling-In. It will be posted on Monday November 25!

See you Sunday!!


“Marriage Made Easy” - Sunday September 8, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This week's guest: Marilyn Christensen 

What if you could have a marriage that required little to no effort? One that felt easy. One, that after 47 years of marriage, you and your spouse still held each other in high regard and deep love. Well, that is just what Marilyn has had with her husband for the past 47 years. Join us as we explore what factors make for this kind of marriage. Marilyn understands what it's like to live in phase four of The Pathway to Love—she has a transformational relationship. There's a lot we can learn from relationships that have gone "right."  Don't miss this one... It just might change your life!

About Marilyn:  Marilyn grew up in the Midwest on a farm, graduated from High School at 17, moved to California to live with her sister for a while, met her husband-to-be, instantly fell in love, stayed in California while her sister returned to the Midwest,  and raised her two sons in Torrance.  She has worked since she was 15 and has been married since barely turning 19.

Marilyn started her bookkeeping/notary business seven years ago. She has a home office where she loves to work and where people can bring their accounting needs. She will also go to people’s homes and businesses to do their bookkeeping onsite.  She is Quickbooks certified and a notary. 

You can contact Marilyn at:  mkchristensen@socal.rr.com or call her home office at:  310-320-0783. 

Marilyn says “I love my work and may be considered a workaholic, but the most important piece of my life is my family – especially my granddaughters.”
