Over the years, Jenni and Suze have shared and discussed their experiences at life’s events, such as weddings, holidays, funerals, etc. When they commiserated on why they were both continually surprised by events that had historically repeated themselves, especially involving family, they realized that they were onto something! Everyone has a family. Why not create a process to help us mentally and emotionally prepare for anything?
