Welcome to Life Love Marriage Divorce.
I created Life Love Marriage Divorce as a resource to encourage and engage in candid conversations regarding relationships, parenting, sex, and social issues. It is my belief that compassionate communication in a non-judgmental safe environment is needed in order to heal old wounds, inspire, and understand one another through our journey. We will experience trials and tribulations but most importantly we will overcome and triumph because God has a plan to prosper and not to harm.

Why I created Life Love Marriage Divorce
Monique Davis Dotson’s Journey
Trusting God’s Plan for me
My Life Love Marriage Divorce journey caused me to challenge, evaluate, and self improve within. I needed to be honest, release attachments, and trust God. I could no longer profess to believe in God; I needed to surrender and trust Him completely. There are no surprises to God regarding my life because He is the author and illustrator of it all. I am so happy that I finally moved out of the way so that He could lead and guide me in ultimately reaching my highest good.About Monique →

Comments from Readers
I try to read your post as they inspire me even when I find it hard to believe in myself you push me to believe in so much more. I strive to be even the tiniest bit like you for others as you have been for me! With my body fighting me everyday I look to your words of encouragement and to our God and I know that I can get through the worst of it. Fibromyalgia is an ugly and painful diagnosis but I choose to live better through Christ! I choose to not take the nasty narcotics and chose to care for my family instead. There are bad days but I push through them and I notice I look for your words in those moments. You are a wonderful mentor.
I thank God that I have you to look up to!
Monique truly has a special gift – the ability to listen without judging, inspire without being overbearing, and give without wanting anything in return. She provides advice and insight to encourage others, and I have been lucky enough to experience these gifts first-hand. Thank you, Monique, for your encouraging words. I am forever grateful to know you!
Troy Jefferson, Program Manager, Child & Adolescent Services Dept.Riverside General Hospital
It is with great honor that we here at Riverside General Hospital salute Mrs. Monique Dotson for her dedication and quality of service she provides for our youth in the Winners’ Journey program. She has implemented a successful Yoga program to our youth, and facilitates her services weekly to all of our female teens with great anticipation. Her services have become a vital part of our client’s weekly schedule, acknowledging that the majority of our clientele are lacking positive self-esteem, anger management and coping skills when they become upset. Our youth and staff always look forward to her instruction and ideas offered to help them make better choices in life instead of always reacting on poor impulsive behaviors. Mrs. Dotson is a very honest and caring individual, who has no problem respecting the ideas and reasoning of others, and this is why all those who attend her Yoga sessions enjoy her so much. We appreciate her greatly and value her services. She has definitely made our youths lives better, and for that reason, we all thank her a million and wish her more success in all of her future endeavors.
I have known Monique for 25 years and I have always been inspired by her words of encouragement. I met Monique through my then boyfriend, now husband. She was my first counselor, that is partly why my husband and I survived through our early twenties. Monique is easy to talk to because she listens and responds with a Christians point of view. She will never tell you what you want to hear, her words are always honest, insightful and spoken with love. When she is present she commands your ear. She will keep you engaged with her conversation and you will leave feeling like you can conquer the world. I am a better person having met her and I am blessed to have her in my life.
What do you say about an individual who puts others in front of herself? What do you say about an individual who constantly wants the best out of each situation? What do you say to an individual who truly listens to your concerns and guides you through your thinking process without your realizing it? What do you say about an individual who keeps FAITH in spite of it ALL. You call her a TRUE FRIEND… SISTER…MOTHER…COUSIN..etc. I simply call her my sister Monique.
We are not blood related but I feel she treats me as if I am!!
You have the GIFT of ENCOURAGEMENT and EMPOWERMENT !!!
Stay as you are….
