Hi Eunice!

First and foremost thank you for this amazing website. Keep it up. May God bless you because you are touching generations with the hard work that you are doing, many a lady will raise up children to be elegant ladies and gentlemen because of all the understanding you have brought to us through this website.

Personally I have always been a rather large child and grew up as a 'chubby' teenage girl. As you can imagine there were things that I wished I could have done but didn't get the chance to do because of my size eg ballet, swimming, dance. Thank God my parents were always very loving people and not once did they ever say anything mean about my weight. However as I got older and began to learn more about my health I began to try and do something about it. Diets never helped much until I got to meet a group of chiropractors who came to my church in Harare, Zimbabwe and taught us the 5 Principles of Living a Maximized Life. Since then I have had more success in losing weight. I have not arrived at my desired BMI but at least now my ideal weight is guided by medical truth instead of blind ignorance.

Then I came across your website..Eunice you cannot begin to imagine the joy that I felt as I read each and everything on your website. I knew that I had found a treasure. This was what I had been looking for but could not put a name to it - ELEGANCE. I knew that it was not old fashioned to want to be well mannered, to want to speak well of others, to want to be elegant and be an elegant mother and wife.

It's a process, to unlearn bad habits and relearn new (good) ones :-) but with your help and the help of this website I know that it is well. I made a commitment this morning that beginning today, I will endeavour to be a more elegant woman in everything that I do. Eunice, I will be turning 20 next year on the 17th of February and I feel like I am at that stage in life where I need to start being a truly elegant woman. I will also be leaving home and going to University in a different country. Someone once said to me that you only have one chance to make a first impression. I want to be all that God has called me to be - and do it all elegantly.

So all in all, thank you Eunice, may God bless you richly for all that you are doing. Numbers 6:24-26 24 'The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’

Blessings xxx
