"Thank you for the special presentation at our Annual Spring Convention. Your stories were well received and the participants seemed to relate...we enjoyed a few laughs, a few worrisome moments (until you got to the end of the story), and then ended on a high note. It was a delightful experience!"

"Elise Seyfried shared a few of the stories she has written about her life experiences at our Wild Women Weekend. She engaged the women throughout her presentation and kept a thread of humor thru her stories. We would definitely invite her back again!"

"Elise Seyfried's books are short essays about her family, her faith, and the everyday situations we all face. When we invited her to our Military Women's Club at Ft. Indiantown Gap, PA, she brought her essays to life as she read from her books. The women could relate to her and ENJOYED Elise's wit, honesty, and applications of everyday life situations to our faith in God. It was a joy to have her with us."
