“I found this book thought provoking. I went from: ‘Hmm, interesting, but I don't have an addiction to food’ to ‘Hmm, I can relate to some of the mindlessness of what and how I eat.’ Making it personal meant that the author wasn’t telling the reader what to do or think, and as a result, I started to think about my own patterns, thoughts and emotions to food. I liked this.”
“’Dreaming of Cupcakes’ is a powerful book that lends understanding and compassion to the addiction healing journey. Whether you have an addiction or not, anyone can benefit from reading this book. Jen’s journal entries provide a vulnerability that is really engaging and impactful. The combination of shamanic knowledge and quotes from other authors’ writings brings the possibility of new perspective to the reader. Addiction is a societal issue, not just and individual issue. As a recovering addict, it brought me to a deeper level of looking at my patterns. Jen's courageous journey can help open the door to changing your life. Thank you for sharing your wisdom!”
“’Dreaming of Cupcakes’ is very readable and captivating. I learned a lot about the potential of treating my addiction to stress, overwhelm and anxiety as such. I have become more aware of my own relationship with food.”
“Jen has an easy, open, natural way of writing. I anticipate that this book will touch many people.”
-Marilyn Keffer author of “Shamanic Ceremonies for a Changing World”
"I think Jen has a great personal writing style, and I also appreciate the many quotes and teachings she brings in from her mentors. Nice work. It's inspiring me to be more present and reflective with my food prep and eating experiences. Thanks."
When I embarked on reading her story, my intent was to dive into the book, learn a few things along the way and be ready to interview her. Instead I was given a good lesson in not having expectations.
I didn't realize that by reading this book, I would receive healing. It took me months to finish it, and with good reason. Each chapter opened my heart, more and more, and I found myself looking within, becoming increasingly aware of the courage and commitment it took for her to go to the source of an addiction - from a spiritual/emotional perspective. I needed to pace myself, to give space to the emotions I was feeling as I read her words. It was like I was beside her, healing an addiction I didn't have.
I've walked with people who are on that path, and have deep compassion for their journey, as well as their families and friends. My hope is that this book might find its way to those who are looking for a different perspective for healing addiction. This book is not only for people recovering from addictions but also those who love them.
