"Journaling Power is a candid, beautifully-written self-help book, filled with warmth, wit and wisdom." Dennis Palumbo, psychotherapist and author, Writing From The Inside Out

"Remarkable, riveting and transformative. These are the three words that I believe best describe Mari's exceptional book. Whether you journal or not, whether you have even thought about journaling or not, you will definitely want to dive in to discover how this one simple process can radically and positively impact your life in many ways. Highly recommended." Peggy McColl, New York Times best-selling author

"Mari shows amazing courage and resourcefulness in tackling her illness head-on and using all her inner resources to unwind its psychological underpinnings. She writes with full personal transparency, and using herself as the vehicle, she clearly and powerfully instructs and inspires the reader in the art of journaling. Of course you don't have to have a life-threatening illness like MS to reap the benefits of this beautifully-written and most inspiring book. All that being said, as a functional medicine physician, I cheered when she all-too-briefly mentioned going gluten and dairy free, since we look for underlying causes and in such autoimmune illnesses as MS, focus on gut health, gluten and other sensitivities, and lack of such nutrients as vitamin D." Hyla Cass, M.D., nationally acclaimed expert in integrative medicine, psychiatry, and addiction recovery, associate editor of Total Health Magazine, and best-selling Author of 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health

"Mari's approach to journaling brings to mind the Taoist idea of Radiant Health - which is possible only when we cultivate wellbeing of the mind and body and an adaptability to the stresses of the world around us. After reading this book, I plan to add journaling to my doctor's bag right alongside Jing herbs for their power to heal the body, mind and spirit." George Lamoureux, DAOM, LAc - Qi Gong Master, Founder and CEO of Jing Herbs, and best-selling author of High Performance Entrepreneurs Handbook: 5 Easy Recipes for Maintaining Energy, Productivity, Immunity and Well-Being

"Journaling Power is a wonderful book that helps us connect with our abilities to heal the mind, body and spirit." Sally Schutz, M.D., Lyme Disease Expert and best-selling author of The Anti-Aging Miracles of Hemp Derived CBD Oil

"If you've ever doubted the therapeutic and transformative benefits of journaling, you need to read Mari L. McCarthy's Journaling Power. Mari shares her intense physical struggle with MS; the emotional decision to close her consulting business, which was her identity at the time; and goes to battle with her Inner Critic in a remarkable healing journey that transforms her life physically, psychologically, and spiritually. She not only shares her personal story and stories from the CreateWriteNow community but also the medical evidence and science behind the benefits of journaling. Journaling is the wonder drug that Big Pharma doesn't want you to know about! A powerful tool for positive change, this book also contains the inspirational journaling exercises and encouragement that Mari is famous for, so you can embark on your own journey of transformation."
