She knows what it is like to struggle with chronic health problems and not liking herself. She has sought out those things that have helped her through classes, personal mentoring and a lot of pondering. Now she is a powerful presenter and mentor, teaching many groups of people and individuals how to like themselves through techniques such as vision boards, declarations, journaling and many other others. Darylee gave a powerful presentation on finding our Christlike attributes. She is a very happy and peaceful person. ”

“I went to one of Darylee’s presentations and I was amazed at how much I learned from her in about a half an hour. I will honestly not be the same after seeing and hearing her share ideas on how to like ourselves more. I was struck by her teaching style and the power behind her message—her power of personality and just who she is. We were trained in some of the same classes and I was so grateful I was able to be at her class. I urge you to go to every class she teaches. You will not only have a happier life, your kids and spouse will also be better off because of it. Do what she tells you to do so you can have the peace and happiness you want.”

“Darylee Ishimatsu is truly a mentor of light! Darylee has mentored me through 2 ultra-marathons and also with helping me start a personal business. She shares love and personal stories in a way that is so beautiful and accepting that it motivates me to step toward my goals hand in hand with my Father in Heaven and to be accepting of myself and my accomplishments too. I have so much fun achieving my goals with Darylee as my mentor because she truly cares about them and whenever I feel discouraged, she shares a tool that boosts me up and helps me continue forward. Most recently I have been able have her “Steps of Light” mentoring with my son who recently returned home from his mission. My son was having a hard time with the transition and as I watched her share tools with my son in the language he understood, I was so grateful for the gift of having her as a mentor for both myself and for him. Later that night, I saw him organizing his tools from her and working on his steps of light. Darylee has been a life changing mentor to me for the past year and now she is also a life changing mentor to my son. If you want to feel the light of Christ in your life, Darylee is the right mentor for you. Her steps of light will fill you with joy and happiness as you step toward your goals. This light will elevate you so that you will have a clear vision of Gods love for you and you will feel peace and comfort as she gently assists you on your journey.”
