“Fifteen years ago, in a personal funk and a professional nightmare, I found Joyce Chapman’s JOURNALING FOR JOY.  Working through her material, on my own, I was able to pull myself up, refocus, and find a new path for myself and my career, with vivid plans for retirement.

Three years into retirement, however, I found myself comfortably ensconced in my own inertia. I knew I needed something–a blast of dynamite, a cattle prod–something to get me moving. I remembered how Joyce’s book had helped me to clarify my situation while motivating me to take the small steps necessary to change what I could.

I contacted her, and after an invigorating and hope-filled conversation, I applied for her LIVE YOUR DREAM self-study program. One year later, I am living my dream life, and my dreams are getting bigger and bigger.  I will apply for her CELEBRATE YOUR DREAM self-study program when I my first novel is finished.

Joyce’s work is practical and meaningful. Working with her, one on one, in the self-study program has been that stick of dynamite I needed to take action. I know she works with many different clients, but with every conversation, every email, every exchange through the US postal service, I felt as if I were her one concern, her highest concern. I know that Joyce is my friend for life, a friend who is my most ardent cheerleader.

Everything in Joyce Chapman’s books moves me to action. Her writing, her chapter checklists, and her journaling prompts COMPEL me to action. And Joyce’s personality, warm, smart, incisive, supports me as I make the changes in my life and my mindset that create my dream. Thank you, Joyce. I wish I could convey how grateful I am.”

"I would like to tell the world about Joyce Chapman! She changed my life through her powerful journaling process. Her process is different from any others that I had encountered and took me where I needed to go. She is a masterful writer and “Dream Coach.” Joyce intuitively gets to the heart of things with everyone she encounters I know many people who’s lives she has turned around. Joyce is a polished presenter, and because of her positive energy, vast knowledge, years of experience, and sense of humor, she connects immediately with any audience she works with. In addition, Joyce walks her talk and she’s lots of fun to be around!  In this crazy economic climate, we all need help getting to what is important and moving forward.”

"Have you ever tried to learn dance or art from someone who was a wonderful dancer or a beautiful artist? These “teachers” have a wonderful ability to create but perhaps no ability to teach. Joyce Chapman practices her art with a deep ability but also a gift of teaching. She has that rare ability to both practice and teach her art. The art of noticing. The art of awareness. The art of following dreams. Teachers like this come along very rarely, we are very blessed to have her. Journaling is the paintbrush of the beautiful masterpiece that is you.”
