Sometimes life changers come at you in unexpected ways. Being a fellow classmate, fellow Hampton U., Alumnus and fraternity brother, Les Allen stepped into my life at the right moment. 2 years ago my mother passed and my marriage of 26 years ended in the same month. I was really low spiritually and mentally. Les was a shoulder for me to lean on and he told me about this book that he co-authored with his wife, Sydney Allen and initially when he told me the name of it I wasn’t interested because the last thing I wanted was a relationship book. What I soon discovered is that the relationship component in “Intentional 4Play” dealt more about the relationship within oneself. I read the book and at times found myself healing personally because I was wiping away tears. So I can say that “Intentional 4Play” helped me continue with my process of healing. I highly recommend this work of art for individuals and couples who need a fresh perspective and directional guide to grow and heal internally. Love you both Les and Sydney
