What retreatants and directees have said about working with Gail:
'In 13 years of ordained ministry, I have come across a number of counselors and spiritual directors. Quite frankly, Gail surpasses them all. A committed prayer life and a deep love for Jesus characterize all that she does. All this coupled with an amazing intuition and a humble spirit makes her an invaluable and creative resource for anyone seeking to deepen their walk with Jesus.'
Father Patrick Smith
Rector, St. John's Episcopal Church
'My time with Gail was life-giving and life-changing. God's love literally pours through her heart and empowers her to guide others as they seek to know Him more. Although, I have had a relationship with God for many years, it was through my time in spiritual direction that I was guided into experiencing the reality of God's intimate involvement in my life. I'm so grateful for Gail's wisdom and gentle guidance in that process.'
Debbie Smith M.A. Professional Coach and Consultant Nashville, TN
'Gail's heart for helping people toward a vibrant, living relationship with Christ is infectious. Whether she is directing an individual, a small group, a church staff, or a whole congregation, her passion is obvious and her abilities undeniable. She led a wonderful 24-hour silent retreat for our staff and then, an evening of prayer for our congregation, where we were all encouraged to pursue Christ. If you are interested in a deeper, personal, biblical walk with Jesus, I highly commend Gail to your ministry.'
J. Richard Love Pastor Ruston, LA
'Gail is a gifted and compassionate spiritual director. She is very insightful and possesses an ability to join others in a prayerful and discerning manner. I would highly recommend her as a soul companion.'
Susan Bowers Baker Director, Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth Wernersville, PA
'The last retreat was life changing. Even more so as I reflect back on it. . .I say now that I was pursued for 29 years by God and there was a clear milepost of surrender which marked a transition spiritually. Our weekend was an equally significant milepost marking a transition from an 11 year intellectual relationship with faith to something more intimate.'
Robert Retreatant, Spring Hill, TN
'Gail has been given the gifts of intuition, wisdom, and encouragement. It is a blessing to see her use these gifts in a retreat setting to move people through challenges in their lives to victory in Christ. I am at peace with myself, closer to my Lord and more in love with Jesus because of the retreat.'
Catherine Retreatant, Clarksville, TN
'I have not stopped thinking about that incredible silent retreat last month. It was so sweet and wonderful. God is still doing amazing things in my life and I am still learning to let him 'love me lavishly'. I have told so many people about the retreat. Gail's sweet, kind, and unconditional care and compassion will not ever be forgotten. I am so glad God brought us together and used her so intentionally to speak to me. I will never forget.'
