“During this difficult recession, many people are under enormous stress, whether at work or because they are out of work. At our retreat, Marlene helped our church people be reminded of God’s great resources to reassure us and be calmed and strengthened.”

—Pastor George Lockwood, La Conner Methodist Church

“Greatly appreciated and very well done. God’s timing is always the right time.”

—Comments from attendees at the “Healing Your Life Story” Workshop

“During my thirty years as a teacher and education program administrator, I have taught with many talented teachers from many different academic disciplines. None were more talented, more dedicated, or well prepared than Ms. Anderson.”

—Dr. E. Page Bailey, President, Human Resources Department, Corp of America

“The content was impressive. The students carried away a clear understanding of the challenges of ADHD kids and the need for multiple intervention and support to the family.”

—Gordon Lindbloom, Professor, Lewis & Clark College, Graduate School

“Marlene has only been with us one year, but she has taught more classes than we can keep track of from ADHD Parenting, to Depression, to Couples Communication. She has oriented new counselors for ADHD Parenting, assisted in writing our Chronic Illness Class, and most recently developed a series of relaxation exercises to be used in stress reduction. Marlene also has a wonderful sense of humor and eyes that sparkle when she smiles. Thanks Marlene, working with you is a gift.”

—Hope Sasek, Chairman, Health Education, Kaiser Permanente

“Marlene is a delightful, moving speaker.”

“The speakers’ vulnerability took me deeper. The only thing about the retreat I didn’t like was that it ended too soon!”

“I felt unconditional love and acceptance. The speakers gave me hope.”

“I loved the sweetness and freshness of the speakers.”

“The teaching was very practical. They taught us how to implement the concepts into our daily lives.”
