RAVES FOR MEL

I am loving your book.  I am spending time getting to know one of them each day....in random order depending on the title and which one calls me that evening.   I read them on my balcony and just let the nourishing words sink in.
--Katie

Each of these pieces in your collection are incredible. The healing one was piercing, in the most authentic and nourishing way.  Thank you for your gift of words, of healing, of light, of love, which poured through your strands of thoughts. Wow.  So powerful.
-- Sarah

I have felt SO encouraged by each one in a unique way - kind of like each one is a conversation directly into my heart leaving me with a smile on my face and empowered in a precious and different way.
--  Gayle


These books need to be shared with everyone. They could save a lot of lives; and make a lot of other lives better. You have no idea what a blessing you are to this world. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.
--Joe

I bought your book online not knowing what to expect.  I am loving it.  I am spending time getting to know one of them each day....in random order depending on the title and which one calls me that evening.   I read them on my balcony. Truly beautiful!!
-- Sonia
I've spent many days now crying after reading your book and telling my daughter .."these are happy tears." You reminded me of myself and helped me open the door."
--Lisa

You need to know NOW that I received your book and could not put it down. I cried and cried. What a wonderful contribution. It will be the first book I RE-read in a long, long time.
-- Dave

I AM is a triumph.
-- Mia

I just now finished my first reading of a book I will return to again and again.  I have already ordered your second book as well and if you have a third I'll be buying that pronto.
-- Sally
THE BARE MELCESSITIES

“This book is like open heart surgery. It will change how you look at life.”
--Chris Palmeri, senior correspondent, Business Week --

"Stripped bare, with nothing but her honesty and a delightful sense of humor, Melanie Lutz blazes a trail through divorce to a new life filled with joy. Bravely she shares her hard-earned wisdom with candor, offering support and inspiration to keep going when the next step seems impossible."
-- Jo Carey, Events Coordinator

"This book is inspiring, poignant, and truly magical. I read it (devoured, actually); I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I got pissed….all of the elements are there for what is truly a complete expression of being human. Growing, learning, and ultimately becoming the curators of our own souls."
-- Yvonne Huffman, Vice President, Business Development Officer, First Bank

“Your book could not have entered my world at a better time. Things in my life have been surreal, think recent Letterman confessions with a Cohen brothers "Fargo" stupidity scale!!

I have been wondering how I ended up in a situation that is so sick? How did this all happen around me???? How can I regain my sense of dignity, my confidence and find some happiness and peace?

It was so helpful to read your insights and have the opportunity to get to know you through your writing. Your being there, albeit through the book, was a wonderful relief.

I will keep it near to remind me of the goodness and grace that there is in this universe as I begin to find MY life.

What a gift! Thank you soooo much.”
- - Nan G - -

“I definitely needed this! It helped so much to read someone who really understands what it's like to be in a sea of change, with all kinds of demands and a heart that just really, genuinely wants to help everyone, herself last but not least. You are a real inspiration…”
- - Jennifer Kushell, Author of NY Times bestseller, Secrets of the Young & Successful, Founder, President of YSN.com (your success network). - -

“Mediate, exercise, sleep, and READ MEL. It takes immense courage to write with such deep honesty and integrity, but Mel has made a commitment to make this her way of life. Good for her and good for us for hanging with such a cool lady.”
- - Dr. Kathleen McMahon - - Dean of Students, Roger Williams - -

“Soulfully humorous, outrageously charming.”
- - TMN - -

“Mel's journey from her conditioned mind to her heart is a must read for all. She eloquently describes her process of awakening and shedding the societal conditioning that we are all subject to, and frees herself for her happy life. I give it my highest recommendation to anyone who has questioned the life they are living, and wanting more.”
- - Sally C. Vail -- Creator of Goddess By Design –

“I embraced my inner Mel. All I can say is WOW!”
--Donna P

"I loved it!

I thought THE BARE MELCESSITIES was an amazing and revealing look into a person's soul -- from growing up, to adulthood.... The book is honest. And funny. And real. I thoroughly enjoyed the quick read. And I recommend it to EVERYBODY!"
-- Mark Perez – Writer – Herbie: Fully Loaded & Accepted - -

"I LOVE your book. I read it straight through. I cried and laughed and loved the wisdom and style. You nailed the experience of what we all go through. Terrific work!"
- - Virginia C. Green, PHD - - author of Creativity Unwrapped - -

In addition to the open and complete honesty of this book, there's also quite a bit of humor too. You'll take away something from every chapter and breeze through this brave retelling of a year spent putting a life back together after a break up. And, you'll find that all of us have more fear, anxiety, hope and love in common than we ever thought.
- - Sue B --

"The Bare Melcessities peels back the layers of heart break taking readers on a journey through a year spent starting over after divorce. And what a journey it is!

Ms. Lutz confronts her own awakening in such a compelling way that her despair is transformed before our eyes into pure joy. Using her inner thoughts, collected works, and gifted insight she synthesizes the story of one soul beautifully starting over.

Ultimately, The Bare Melcessities is a gift. I left the read humming, not just the song, "look for the bare melcessities, the simple bare melcessities" but my entire being. I loved it!"
- - Barbara - -

"I just loved the book!! My friend turned me onto it...Melanie really put into words how a lot of people feel and it was both inspiring and heartwarming... Everyday I read a chapter of the book, and I felt that I learned a little bit about the author and at the same time learned more about myself!

Thank you for sharing and thank you for the inspiration!! It gets my highest regards."
- - Barbara P - -

"This is a book that talks straight to the soul... down to earth, with an ease and charm that is nothing short of inspiring. Having just gone through a breakup, I related immediately, but more than that, the author's willingness to share her inner journey takes courage, she shares thoughts we all have, and work on and worry through in such a beautiful manner that you can't finish this book and not look at the world in a different way."
- - Steve K - -

"I was deeply affected by the journey that Ms. Lutz puts so beautifully and eloquently on the page. It's a must read for anyone who finds themselves 'stuck' and feeling isolated in their life. By the end of the book, not only did I feel lighter, but I was ready to dance."
- - Michelle - -

"Hey Authoress!! I loved it!

Congratulations--- You really put into words how a lot of people feel and it was both inspiring and heartwarming---I just thought it was terrific and was EXTREMELY impressed!!!!"
- - Bill M - -

"Great Book! It helped me work through working through change with a bad disease and related problems that have whacked my program. Kudos to you for sharing your story and thank you for showing working through."
-- Toby B. --

"I started reading your book last night, wow! I had to keep reading out loud to my boyfriend... saying, "listen to this... this is me!" :) although my reasons for divorce were different to yours I totally did that same thing of accepting less, losing myself..."who needs roses". thank you for writing this book!!!"
-- Linda P –

"This is such a beautiful book, I am so grateful you shared your thoughts. Well, the thoughts we all have. I feel there is such a need for this awakening for women. Your journey made connections for me."
-- Binnie R –

"I was transported by your book. I felt the sadness, my sadness, and my tears as I read through the pages. Wow. Remembering is powerful. Thank you for this book. For the changes it has caused me to make and the sheer joy I feel now in the presence of my life."
-- Irv -- Orange County Book Club

"Just a tiny story -- in 1988 I met my spiritual teacher and started a journey. When I got married I let that part of me go quiet. I have been this aware girl all my life. But it was never my time. I feel it is now my time.... I am not sad that I let that esoteric part of myself go quiet, it was necessary for my growth.

Thank you for writing this book and connecting me to the truth of my being."
-- Lisa B –

"Getting deeper in touch with my feminine side is scarier than the time I bottle fed a 450lb TIGER laying in my lap. What the hell? Ha!

Thanks for writing the book and waking me up. Getting bare indeed!!!"
-- Felicia C --

“Mel is quite possibly the most charming writer I’ve ever read!”
--Mel-o-maniac

AMP EXPERIENCE

Thank you! Your events are always so inspiring and your works to empower women's potentialities is simply WONDERFUL!!!

MELANIE LUTZ PRESENTS LOVE LAND

I love your book! I started reading it last night. Thank YOU. I've been looking at

things from a 'loving' angle all day. it works for EVERYTHING!

--Niki Lee

“Like a box of chocolates you can’t stop eating that after consumption is completely soul satisfying with none of the guilt. All I can say is — Love Land is rich nourishment for the heart.”

– Mary Hart

“In this loving jolt to the system, Melanie Lutz’s beautiful words leave you feeling happy from the inside out with a song in your heart and a complete desire to create a new loving story that fills your life with joy.”

– Enrietta Lee

the "I AM" series
I am a Magnificent Woman. I am a Great Man.

Regarding Your Father’s Day writing: This is the very first moment of enlightenment that I have experienced in a number of years, on this particular day. Fully recognizing that this day of all days is reserved to honor Father’s and that I had had my own trepidations of its arrival all week long. As I... had awoken this morning; regrettably, my feelings of unease had not changed. And, as the hours passed, I began to believe the woefully inadequate mood in which I originated my day, would most probably not change. Once again, I recognized that today I was feeling as tormented as I have felt every Father’s Day, in each of the ensuing eight years that I have spent without my very own Father. Soon, however, I would learn that this year would be different. This year would not bring another disconcertingly sorrowful Father’s Day after all. Finally, there was going to be a transformation and it was all going to begin with a few written words from an author whose... Thank you.
-- Tangie V

“Mel is evolving in so many unexpected ways. It’s a pleasure to be a fan club member!”
--Maria

Each of these pieces in your collection are incredible. The healing one was piercing, in the most authentic and nourishing way.  Thank you for your gift of words, of healing, of light, of love, which poured through your strands of thoughts. Wow.  So powerful.
-- Sarah

I have felt SO encouraged by each one in a unique way - kind of like each one is a conversation directly into my heart leaving me with a smile on my face and empowered in a precious and different way.
--  Gayle


I wanted to thank you  for creating such a beautiful collection of inspirational words.  I am still running off the strength and empowerment that I harvested from reading the book. What a pleasure to be able to refer to your book, to keep it on my nightstand and to use it to nourish my being. It is exceptional!
-- Katie
