“You have a rare gift.”


“When I was so ill and frightened, with my life turned upside down, you were of immense help to me. You know how to listen. This is a valuable skill for a counselor; that of having caring empathy and the kind of attention that makes people feel valued.”


“We want to thank you for performing such a wonderful ceremony.  A lot of our friends and family told us that it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had ever seen.  You made our wedding day very special.  We are happy that you are a part of our memories forever.”


“I learn a lot from you every time I talk with you – especially about intention, motivation and presence.”


“You changed my life.”


“I want to give you my heartfelt thanks for all you've given me in the past year, culminating with this weekend's retreat.  I have never felt so much a part of something REAL.  I started the weekend physically and mentally tired, and in emotional turmoil.  Now my body is still tired, but my mind is calm and my soul is filled with joy, longing and fire.  I WANT MORE!!  Wow - what an amazing experience.”


“Your spiritual guidance means a lot to me!


“Your sermon was beautifully constructed and expressed, touching and stretching my mind, my heart, and my soul.  It began so personally, and then lifted me to so many deeper mysteries and revelations---and yet, in the end, the message was so simple.  Definitely a 10!


“I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to learn from you.  Rarely do I find someone with the kindness, compassion, knowledge and humor that you possess.  You have taught me in countless ways how to be a better teacher, friend and person.”


“It is so gratifying to see someone such as you following their calling in life.  You are so good at being you and doing what you do and I greatly appreciate both.”


“Thanks for the depth and breadth and ever god-loving power of you! What a treat to finally get to work with you and learn from you!


“I wanted to thank you both for your inspired teachings of this past week, and to let you know that I intend to take what I have learned to the far reaches of my influence, now and in the future.  Being with you, learning from you was an amazing experience, touching me to the heart.  I feel so fortified! I want to stand up and shout!!


“I say once again, ‘You are one helluva minister.’   I used to wish that priests were able to be honest with us when I was still active in the Catholic church.  I always wanted to have that experience of ‘we're all in this Universe together.’  I appreciate you immensely and I am so glad you follow your deep inner callings.”


“We are so thankful for the love and the spirit that you bring.”
