More Notes from our Audiences


"Dear Pati, Thank you so much for sharing your gift of storytelling with our congregation! We were blessed by your presence and grace! Our adults and children enjoyed your creative presentation of the parables of the lost coin and the lost sheep very much!"

"Thank you, Pati, for being the light and sunshine last night in your presentation at the Delta Kappa Gamma International meeting. We appreciated your wonderful story of the amazing life of Helen Keller and how you tied it to your own experience with your caring grade school teacher. As you mentioned in your program, "To teach is to touch lives forever." Well, YOU touched our lives with your heartfelt stories. May God's blessings continue to take you and your stories across the miles to encourage the hearts of many listeners."

"Thanks again, Pati, for "bringing alive" Katie Luther's story at our Senior Ministry fall event! Many expressions by those who attended were MOST appreciative of the FINE program. It was obvious that you have researched her story well. You personified Katie with humor and realism in "uncovering" the human character of her! You are a gifted and creative storyteller who provides enrichment, education and enjoyment packed into your Christian faith-based presentation. And I hope that you will continue to tell her story multiple times for the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation in 2017, as we look at our historical roots. Thanks again, Pati, for launching for us a new year of ministry to and with the seniors here!"

"Dear Pati, Thank you for coming all the way up to Braham to share your stories with us. Your presentation, "Ya, Sure, I'm A Norvegin Luteran" was absolutely wonderful! You are so joyful and bring that out in your listeners. It is a gift from the Lord. I read some of the testimonials on your website and I can only say, "Well, Amen to that!" Thank you for sharing your fun and loving stories about your grandmothers and other relatives with us. You have a great Godly heritage to embrace and you do a great job of letting your light shine through in what you do."

"Dear Pati, Thank you so much for sharing with us today! God bless you! I thoroughly enjoyed your story telling about the life of Helen Keller, your singing and your faith journey. I had to reach for the Kleenex when you told about your caring third grade teacher and how God used her to help you get through your challenges in school. You are incredible light! Thank you for being a blessing to our seniors today."

"Dear Pati, On behalf of our Senior Adults here at Buffalo Covenant Church, I want to thank you so very much for the wonderful program you shared with us on the life of Helen Keller. God has given you a remarkable gift as a story-teller and we all rejoice in your obedience to that calling on your life. We are already looking forward to hearing your sgtory about Katie Von Bora Luther next year! May God richly bless your ministry as you help people understand the stories that they can share with others."
