   "I attended the seminar about the mental health of African American men and it was life-changing. I was actually blown away! I know I received information that will help me for the rest of my life. While you’re planning your events, please consider booking her. This information is cutting-edge, powerful, imperative, and life-changing. "

It feels as if this experience could constitute a quarter-long college course. So much to learn, and lots to practice together. A wonderful day--inspiring, helpful, and even fun!   An unexpected answer to prayer for me--prayers not even fully formed or expressed."
