Vera’s story was very moving and encouraging. She makes me value simplicity, and inspires me to make use of the abilities God has given me, regardless of how they measure up to others. I’m running a 5k for the Special Olympics in my area. I’m told over 300 Special Olympians will be there, cheering and encouraging the runners. I expect there will be tears. Lots of tears. Thanks for allowing God to use you to touch the heart of a grumpy old man.

Maryanne is inspirational! Her presentations are always thought-provoking. My two favorites are “Defining Your Dash” and “Think Naked.” While listening to Maryanne, I went from laughter to tears and back to laughter while internalizing her message during brief moments of self-introspection. She engages her audience and encourages us all to stretch our reach. She is a true master speaker and sets the bar high for her peers!

Debra Hansford - Consultant, Trainer, Speaker

Our memories of others and, more importantly, the things those memories inspire in us are indeed the greatest legacies. Your story about your sister was very inspirational and very honoring of her. Thank you for including it. God bless you.

I finished it and loved it. Can’t wait until it’s actually published and out there for people to gain your insight on living one’s life by using inspirational words…I think most people do, but don’t actually realize they are doing so. I know I do, but never thought of it this way before. See, once again, that’s why we are such kindred spirits.
