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 →

We hear and say the expression that life is short, time is precious and enjoy life while you can but we don’t always follow those instructions…to be present in the moment or to appreciate life would mean to stop what we’re doing and slow down in order to smell the roses. I am sure that we are all aware that tomorrow isn’t promised and appreciating each day as if it was our last should be […]

How many times have you said I want to change my career but fear stops you in your tracks? How many times have you said to yourself… “this relationship is taking more than it’s giving and it’s more hurtful than helpful.” And after years of trying, forgiving and patiently waiting for the other party to improve their actions towards you things remain the same. When relationships begin to decline and the excitement & passion you […]
It’s amazing how often we say we’re fine when we’re not. The norm of pushing through tough times mentality, emotionally or physically is just what we do, even when we may be falling apart from the loss of loved ones, negative or abusive relationships-be it professional or personal, financial instability, depression, divorce or whatever challenges come our way. The saying of…”I don’t want anyone to know my business” or the guilt felt for “complaining to […]
As the month of July begins, which happens to be my birthday month, I can’t help but to think about our furry family member, our beloved cane corso, Lambeau passing on the last day of June. My heart breaks as I witnessed him trying to be strong up until his last breath. For anyone who is a dog/animal lover you know that the unconditional love a family pet gives is simply priceless. The understanding that […]
Learning to reconcile and forgive yourself for trusting and believing those who introduce you to their representative, those who create false narratives of themselves is a must for your own self healing. It is unfortunate that some people will check all the boxes on your list, say and do everything right and appear to connect on every level but turn out to be a fraud. As a life coach, I hear countless stories about this […]

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….
