“You and your father are the examples I share with so many of our campers that grow up with a lack of hope that they are meant to be something special. Across the socioeconomic spectrum, I feel that many children begin to conform to society’s average standards at such an early age. I appreciate your generosity, your heart, your example, and your desire to share with others the gifts you’ve been given, and your encouragement in allowing them to explore their own.”
Brian Manhart, Owner/Director—Camp Kiowa
“As I reflect back on the past year and the success our organization has experienced, I am reminded not only of what we have accomplished, but also of those who have contributed to our success and mission, our national convention, and specifically your role as a speaker, has played a big part in that…
Your electrifying presentations encouraged, challenged and inspired over 15,000 students, teachers and guests to live a life of integrity…I truly believe that lives were changed and thousands of high school students left the session with a renewed sense of purpose, attitude and outlook on life.
I have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from convention guests on your speech. Many have said that you are the best speaker that has ever been a part of a convention general session. This is quite a compliment! Your ability to connect with our guests was amazing. You immediately had them mesmerized—and it was a real joy to hear Freedom Hall full of laughter…”

“My wife and I just watched your keynote speech… (...both of our sons were in attendance)…My hat is off to you. That was one of the most impactful, moving and “on target” speeches I’ve ever heard in a career largely focused on trying to provide inspired and inspiring leadership and leading by example. I found myself torn between not wanting to miss a word and calling friends and colleagues to tell them to get their TV on and turned to RFD.
That was such a powerful message for all of us regardless of age but even more so for the young men and women in the audience. My only regret is that at least in this part of the country (Phoenix, Arizona area) the RFD channel that it was broadcast on is not widely accessible. I would love to share your speech with the friends and colleagues who weren’t able to hear it…”
