"Through lighthearted group discussions, presentation, and video, MaryAnn demonstrated her amazing gift as a talented, down to earth, and excellent speaker. We laughed, shared, voiced the thoughtful 'mmm' sound, and wrote many notes to save for pondering at a later time. She is amazing!"

"Consensus: best
retreat ever."

"MaryAnn energized our worship with her preaching as well as Sunday School. The congregation was buzzing afterwards. Her message is not just for families with young children but was relevant to singles, retired people and grandparents. A joyful day and a profound message!"
