"Walking on water is certainly miraculous, but walking peacefully on earth is an even greater miracle. Changing water to wine is wondrous, but it is more practical to change an unhealthy craving into a healthy desire. Raising the dead is clearly a miraculous demonstration of God's power, but so is healing your daughter's tummy ache or ... better yet, making you and your loved ones feel vibrantly healthy so you don't get sick in the first place. The power to create practical miracles is now within the reach of every person."

-- John Gray

According to John Gray, author of the phenomenal #1 bestseller Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, just as the pace of life has accelerated so has your potential for change. By awakening your hidden power to create practical miracles, you will more effectively adjust to life's challenges and respond with greater peace, joy, confidence, and love. When you feel a need to change, you will develop the ability to follow through without anxiety, resistance, indecision or procrastination. You will be able to release such negative reactions as blame, judgement, or resentment, and respond in stressful circumstances with understanding, patience and kindness.
