“She is just NEAT” – Gena Suarez, editor, The Old Schoolhouse

“I enjoyed the session that you taught on surviving with boys. It was excellent! I have just two boys, but they can be a handful at times. … Thanks again for sharing from your heart and your experiences. It was so appreciated.” – Trina Mask

“ …I want to thank you for helping me to see my boys in a new light. I think that the Lord used your talk to draw together all the pieces that He’s been showing me over the last couple of years. I’m so encouraged. … The Lord used you yesterday to speak to my heart and to ignite my own search and study to intentionally raise godly men in our home. …” — Judy Fulmer

“It literally sent a chill down my back. It was a moment of a change of perspective, when the picture turns inside out. It got me to thinking.” – Ric Kolseth

“Your workshop on unity was one of the two best liked workshops of our conference.” –SCHEA
