Praise for Sherry + Simply Celebrate 

Sherry is the central switchboard of kindness, a pure light source. She seems to be everywhere at once with more attention beamed on everything than most people can even imagine. How does she do it? My introduction to Sherry was via a letter of appreciation she sent me for my poetry, but she’s a living example of all that she teaches about expressing love and appreciation to everyone in every way we can. In a world that often feels too full of violence, fear, and anger, we need all the kindness we can get. Sherry’s work sparks courage in ways that create contagious light. And those tiny lights beam out into the world, changing hearts and moods and minds.

—Naomi Shihab Nye, Poet and author of The Red Suitcase

 

Sherry Richert Belul’s work helps jumpstart joy for anyone who feels stuck or not enough. Sherry shares pinpoints of light to move people away from inner shadows toward happiness and celebration. She offers an exciting voice of hope, love, and compassion.

—Randy Taran, founder of Project Happiness

 

Sherry Richert Belul showed up to Life is a Verb Camp with a bag full of magic, creating joy, connection, and happiness in amazing, beautifully simple ways. The Mailbags o’ Love she created facilitated so much appreciation and celebration that we awarded Sherry the event VIP: Golden Heart Award and have made those mailbags a new tradition. I can’t imagine ever having Camp without her Joy Ninja self again!

—Patti Digh, Founder, Life is a Verb Camp and author, Life is a Verb

 

Sherry Richert Belul is part street urchin, part Mary Poppins. Like magic, she shows up in unexpected places—sometimes in the mess of despair or depression—miraculously in the moment we need it—to remind us all of the power of appreciation and love.

—Susan Harrow, author of Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul and CEO of prsecrets.com

 

 

Praise for Celebration Books 

The Celebration Book created by Simply Celebrate was by far the most beautiful gift I’ve ever received. A magnificent surprise! I literally sobbed when I read it. Wow, what a keepsake! Sherry’s work is an example of the power of appreciation and celebration. I’m glad she’s out there encouraging this kind of expression of joy!

—Marcia Wieder, CEO and founder of Dream University

 

Working with Sherry to create a Celebration Book was an absolute joy and the final product is nothing short of spectacular. My wife loves her gift and this incredible keepsake will be a treasure for us to enjoy for a lifetime!

— Steve Olsher, New York Times bestselling author of What Is Your WHAT? and host of Reinvention Radio

 

As a recipient of one of Sherry’s celebration books, I can attest to the deep, soulful impact of these books. Sherry is a happiness Ninja, someone who has an infectious energy and amazing skill at making people feel elevated, inspired, and part of a community of other inspirationalists. Her life’s work has been built on the premise of ‘turning ordinary moments into an extraordinary life,’ and she offers countless ways for others to find all of the ‘pinpricks of light’ in their own lives

—Maya Stein, founder of The Creativity Caravan, author of Writing Prompts for Ordinary People, Brave Girls University teacher

 

Ok, so once again you have made us look like the best! Cathy loved her book
and there were plenty of hugs, kisses, tears, etc. — all the things I am sure
you hope for.  She was floored by everyones participation + how beautiful the book is. I am now looking for the next occasion to gift someone with a Celebration Book!

—Cathy Sommers, repeat Celebration Book customer

 

This book is magnificent.  My children, grandchildren, and friends have expressed themselves with more love and concern than any mother could ever wish for — let along imagine possible. It’s poetic. It is beautiful. The words within it fill my heart. It is a lifetime gift — and it makes getting older a heck of a lot easier!

—Suzy Marks, recipient of an 80th Birthday Book

 

Praise for Love Lists + Love List Coaching 

My birthday Love List party + celebration was amazing. Each of your Love Lists, your  beautiful words and your reflections of me, were profoundly important. They helped me remember — in all my mishagosh — who I am and what I stand for. All I have to do is be me and remember.
—Laurie Wagner

 

I love the idea of these creative one-of-a-kind gifts. Last year I downloaded Sherry’s printable, wrote on it by hand, and mailed it to my mother-in-law. She cried! A good cry! She told everyone that it was the best gift she could have received. I did the same for friends’ birthdays this year, and one friend said that no one had EVER told her things that they loved about her. A friend is having surgery today for cancer, and it dawned on me this morning to create a Joy Jar for her after I watched Sherry’s video from the email she sent out!! I am sure it will help her recovery! All of the creativity brought by Sherry is so refreshing and so needed. Sherry’s work is powerful beyond measure.

—Melissa Brown, Simply Celebrate reader

 

Sherry, it was so much fun talking to you and our Love List coaching session flew by. I am so pleased and amazed that you were able to pick out so many things to put on the list from our conversation. I am excited to give this Love List to my teenage son, even though I’m not sure he will totally get it right now. That’s okay, this has really been a gift for myself — turning my attention to everything I love about him is a wonderful experience! Thank you!

—Nicole Witt

 

Praise for Coaching 

On a recent, long plane ride, I pressed “random play” on my audios, and what really stood out to me was so many amazing recordings in which Sherry’s voice was shining through with positivity, enthusiasm, bouncy joyful high spirits…and oodles of perfectly-crafted encouragements. It was so moving and encouraging! I’m just one of the many people Sherry’s infectious high spirits have bolstered. The truth is that you never know when something you said to someone is being remembered and replayed and is making a huge difference in their lives, like Sherry’s amazing recordings did for me. Sherry teaches us all the ripple effects of love.

—Rob Witig, founder of Netprov Studio and Sherry’s coaching client

 

Praise for Nightlight Class 

 This course contains many beautiful tips and suggestions that the participants can put into use instantly. They are not only easy to implement, but the results of putting them into practice can be felt immediately, which helps reinforce the practices. I loved the suggestions and the reminders that we see what we look for, and having the encouragement to look was a lovely piece of my days.

—Tamara Bailie

 

Sherry is so cheery, bouncy, and lively in person and online. But I so appreciated that her wisdom and experiences came through in the Nightlight class.

—Linda Bannan

 

I am feeling gratitude for this class and community.  The prompts have reminded me to notice things that I may have otherwise ignored.  It’s simple yet profound!  Thank you Sherry!
—Marietta Herod
