"I am an education minister in a church. She provided concepts and challenged me to explore areas I have never before considered. I will take the information I have gained from Gladys and plan not to only apply it with my congregants at church; but, with my family as well."

"Gladys Childs is the best speaker I have ever heard!  I was always suprised with our time was up...never a dull moment."

"Gladys really focused on embodying the fruits of the spirit. She offered a unique way to incorporate this in my teaching. Myself and others were deeply moved by our time with her."
