Welcome to LoveLetters, a monthly roundup of upcoming events, inspiring ideas and products we love. Our goal is to produce an issue of our newsletter towards the end of each month that will provide an overview of what we've been up to at LovEd and what we're loving lately.
We'll be featuring our fourth LovEd Live event on May 12th at 2PM EST where we'll answer all your burning questions on love and personal growth. If you missed out interview for the Happiness After Heartbreak Summit, it's now available on the Interviews section of our website.
Our Ambassador Program is in full swing. The mission of the Program is to create a community of like-minded individuals who are invested in personal growth, passionate about doing love differently, and committed to being the best version of themselves. If you're interested in applying for next year's journey, you can follow this link to find out more.
We're JUST about ready to launch our Salon for Singles series, so stay tuned!
Without further ado, here's our LoveLetters Issue 4.

BE THE 5 Segment:
LovEd's Clarity Program teaches us how to be a level 5 on the Emotional Maturity (EM) Scale. Each month, we feature someone who has inspired us with their high level of EM, meaning they've chosen not to take things personally, respond reactively or approach the situation in a way that contributes to the problem.
This month, our segment is focusing on Jenn Campbell Jackson. The day after she lost her husband Earnest in a car accent, she wrote a Facebook post asking for people to hold the woman responsible in their hearts as well. It wasn't 24 hours later, and this is who she was choosing to be, as others were outraged that the driver had left the scene. She asked: "Is she a mother? Was she terrified? Did she panic?"
What an inspiration Jenn is for us all, especially those of us facing such a great loss.
