Event Reviews

“[Reba’s] unique life experiences make it possible for her to engage a diverse audience in a way that will encourage reflection on the topics that she brings to the table. Reba was respectful of our time as organizers, she communicated efficiently, and she delivered an excellent presentation as part of our recent panel. In fact, this event was one of the most effective we hosted as part of our late winter/spring event series, and it commanded a large audience that was satisfied afterwards.”

— Institute for Spirituality and Health

“Reba’s presentation was a refreshing and wonderful experience for our congregation.  She spoke openly and honestly about courage.  She was both bold enough to be memorable, as well as comfortable enough to make everyone feel safe and reassured while she spoke. It has been several months since she visited us, and we still have members talking about when Reba came to speak to us about courage.  Her talk was good and faithful.  It was something that helped move many people who were able to hear it.  It was powerful, spirit filled, and definitely a blessing to our congregation. If there are any churches considering asking Reba to come and speak, I would absolutely recommend her as an addition to any worship service.”
