AUTHOR VISITS GREENVILLE SENIOR CENTER

 

Author Mary Loverde has been all over the country assisting people in getting their lives balanced. She's been on Oprah four times, been featured on 20/20 and been in magazines like 'Better Homes and Gardens'. And yesterday she made a visit to Greenville. We met up with Mary and asked where she got her passion to get her life balanced. She says the trick is to connect, whether it’s with an old friend, a family member or even spirituality. Get connected.  Loverde starting researching “how a life could be balanced” when she was married, with 3 kids and taking care of her 80 year-old mother in-law and starting to feel out of control.  She has now published 3 books including, ‘I used to have a handle on things, but it broke.’ For more on Mary Loverde and how to get your life balanced, go to her website at: www.maryloverde.com.
