Recommendation Letter 8

The Salvation Army

Dear Joanne:

After 12 years of this, I've heard lots of speakers at women's retreats. I have to admit, most I'd rather not remember. You, however, were different! You actually opened your Bible and shared with us from the Word. That's what I will remember the most--the convicting scripture passages that reinforced your stories. Thank you for being true to the Word.

The women were genuinely appreciative of your messages. At least 50% indicated some kind of commitment or rededication of their life. What an amazing testimony of the Holy Spirit's work through your life and speaking ministry. You dealt with some "hard" issues in a sensitive and spiritual manner. I appreciate your willingness to speak on difficult topics such as forgiveness, abuse and emotions.

Besides all the above, you were one of the most open, kind and "undemanding" speakers I've worked with. I really appreciate the clear communication of your needs ahead of time and your positive encouragement from the preparation clear through the completion of the retreat. You are truly a blessing from above!

May the Lord continue His blessings to you,


Captain Janene Zielinski
