What People are Saying about Allen's and Linda's Speaking Programs
FEEDBACK ON ALLEN CLARK'S SPEAKING PROGRAMS
I hope this message finds you and Linda well. I wanted to thank you for your moving speech yesterday at the Cadet Chapel. I am West Point Class of 1997 and this past weekend I took my godson to West Point as he is interested in attending the Academy. The service at the Cadet Chapel and your inspiring speech served as the perfect capstone to the message I was hoping to deliver to him during our visit.
"On behalf of Navy Region Midwest, Reserve Component Command, I would like to personally thank you for your role as our Keynote Speaker during the Returning Warrior Workshop in Kansas City, Missouri on 5-7 March 2010. Your presentation of "Code of The Warrior" was highly influential. The reintegration of Sailors and their families is an important process, and your presence was essential to the success of the weekend. Your efforts, on our behalf, are truly appreciated. Thank you for your service to the Navy and to the country."
- CAPT Peter R. Davenport, Captain, U.S. Navy / Commander, Navy Region Midwest, Reserve Component Command
"I can't say thanks enough for your inspiring, insightful and deeply meaningful engagement at our March Returning Warrior Workshop. Your participation was a moving experience for all in attendance including returning warriors, their guests and fellow facilitators. I'm most grateful for the testimony of your life and the volumes it speaks beyond the hour of presentation we enjoyed. A conference that is absent critiques, the most telling response was the spontaneous ovation. From one of our most seasoned facilitators I received this comment, "I've never seen this kind of reaction from the crowd at a RWW!" I hope the recipients of your book and those that will interact with your web site will continue to reap the benefits of your ministry. Thank you for being willing to share your whole story with us. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you again."

"I want to thank you for demonstrating the personal strength of a wounded soldier and a healing warrior through your riveting presentation. You could hear a pin drop during your portrayal of Americanism and patriotism through personal achievement and success in the face of tremendous adversity. The 73 students...were filled with awe by your inner strength and courage and may well use you as their model of personal measurement of the strengths and weaknesses of their own leadership capability."

"I want to try somehow to put into words how much I enjoyed seeing 'Esther' in New Albany this past Saturday. I was so 'into' Esther's story of her life that I felt like I had been back in the Bible and then stepped back into our world when you finished. I thank you...for sharing such a talent with us ladies...it truly was a blessing to see and hear you."
- Diane, New Albany, Mississippi
'You were such an inspiration to so many people."
- Carol, New Albany, Mississippi
"The response to your 1st person was overwhelming!! ...What a powerful and mighty talent God has given you. Thank you for using it for Him!!"
- Linda, Church of Horseshoe Bay, Texas
"Linda, you truly captured the weight of one of the strongest women in the bible, Queen Esther. We found ourselves lost in your portrayal of the character, completely identifying with Esther's angst over the weight of her decision to address the king. Your elegance, confidence, and presence were a blessing to those who took advantage of the opportunity to see your thoroughly enjoyable performance."
- David Dean
"Your presentation on Claudia was so moving. You made her so alive and started everyone to think about her and the times she lived. You helped us enter Holy Week with a new insight of the times."
"Northway is still talking about your wonderful performance. It was so moving seeing Claudia come to know Christ. This reminded me that Jesus lived and died for each of us as individuals. You are so talented! Thank you for blessing us!"
- Carole, Northway Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas
"Thank you so much for coming to EXCEL 32 and sharing your heart with us. We appreciate your passion for impacting today's young people and your willingness to share God's truth with us."
- Audience Member, Dallas, Texas
"After the beautiful Roman woman (Claudia, wife of Pontius Pilate) returned to her Texas, USA, twenty-first century audience, she then showed how she had found all the information that she used to create Claudia on the internet. She had handouts for the audience to help us see what she had discovered in her sources. It was a demystifying experience and I was impressed by her devotion to detail, her skills as a speaker, and this idea of allowing the women into her confidence to see how all that magic was wrought. While she was doing that, I was thinking, 'This required a great deal of real love-that is, love first of all for the Lord.' I could see a strong desire to communicate a depth of feeling. I could imagine what it required of her in time on the internet-the hour upon hour of finding, and then assimilating this material. That is taking it into the mind, and then into the spirit, to create this imagery."
