"As the daughter of a Tuskegee Airman, the concept of “legacy” could not be more clear. My challenge has been how to chart my own personal “legacy” course. Erline Belton masterfully reveals in “A Journey that Matters” a powerful process for identifying and aligning our foundational values and beliefs. The personal inquiry process she outlines encourages you to search your soul and gain the clarity necessary to authentically “show up everyday” and positively contribute in our relationships, our communities and in the world. We are thereby better able to create our own personal living legacy. Thank you Erline for this insightful and compelling work. Thank you for guiding me as I create my own journey that matters!!"
“A journey that matters, ... Translate the power of transformation through personal experiences and makes this journey not only an easy read, but one with a clear and insightful understanding of the process. Thank you Erline and bravo.”
Anne Whittington, florist
"Erline Belton has written a necessary book! The content is compelling. The character and spirit of this book are instructive and challenging. The message and methodology call us to a higher place of service to ourselves and our time and space of being... I highly recommend “A Journey That Matters” for teaching, visioning, personal growth and development, as well as a guide for corporations, faith based, public and private institutions and community development.” The Reverend Dr. Otis Moss, Jr
"I have found the book to be a resourceful tool that constantly reminds me that I am not on my journey alone, that I humbly stand on the backs of those that came before me, and that I too, must contribute something back on a daily basis to ensure a more solidified future for my great-granddaughters to come."

“I started reading “A Journey That Matters” on the plane and it is really speaking to me. It seems to have reached my life at the right time, as its contents are in alignment of some of my life’s most important goals.”… “The idea that everything I do and say is contributing to a picture I am painting called “my life is very powerful. It’s even a little scary when I think about it… but I’d rather focus on the power and opportunity of that truth.”
Dr. Nika Nakia, MD
I was reading from your book last night! I am completely intrigued… Did she write this book about ME? I am usually a biography or fiction reader… but something about your book… makes me want to move toward accepting where I’m from, owning the mistakes I have made and becoming a better me! I’m just a little ole work in progress and your book just may help me get where I need to be!!!!!

"A Journey That Matters is an inspiring and instructional book on living your own legacy. Erline Belton has created a compelling message of truth-telling and living authentically that inspires us all to be more conscious of our relationships with each other and ourselves. She has opened our hearts and minds by telling the stories of others who through adversity, awareness, wisdom, conviction, love, commitment, and courage are outstanding examples of living legacies. A JourneyThat Matters provokes a question for me... At the end of the day, how do I want to be remembered?" Linda Mayo-Perez
