I think I’ve gained confidence by hearing from so many published authors – seeing that they’re conquering some of the same fears I have. The workshops have helped me master the craft at least a little more over the past year or two.
Robyn Mulder, 2011
I am so thankful for the connections and networking that I have been able to do through the Breathe Conference. At my first Breathe Conference, I had a new acquaintance introduce me to her friend who has become a spiritual mentor in my life. My soul, as well as my writing, have been immensely nourished through the conference. I can’t thank you enough!
Brooke Nolen, 2011
At Breathe I have learned a great deal about the industry, gained a wealth of resources which will sharpen me as a writer and have been deeply blessed by each of the speakers.
Jessica DiVaner, 2011
These two days have helped me to create and accept my identity as a writer by allowing me to face my fear. I have also learned that I have the ability to write with breadth and variety.
Samantha Beuker, 2011
The Lord used this weekend to confirm some important things for me that I’ve been struggling with (decision making). Breathe is a valuable ministry and it blessed me so much. Thank you again.
Robyn Brodie, 2009
Thanks so much for all of your efforts on ‘Breathe’. I enjoyed the experience so much. My friend, Miriam, and I went out for coffee afterward to debrief, and I was pleasantly surprised to head home with four writing goals. That’s a Big Breathe, don’t you think?
Shannon Popkin, 2009
It was such a pleasure to meet you at the Breathe conference! As I have been mentally unpacking all the information and experiences from the conference I am finding I was blessed with a treasure trove. I learned a great deal that will apply to my artistic future-both visually and written. I was so impressed with the Guild and their relationships and support system that are so obviously the foundation of the Guild’s success. I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated! Thank you.
Susan Mulder, 2010
Like the conference name, the weekend is a breath of fresh air, relaxing, intimate and genuine. I am honored to have been one of the presenters.
Tim Burns, 2010
Thanks for a wonderful conference and especially for your kind words of affirmation and encouragement.
Sharon Brown, 2010
So much good to look back on the last several days. The whole Breathe organizing committee did a wonderful job taking care of details large and small. I had a wonderful time. Thanks again for everyone’s warm hospitality. I’ll look back fondly at a number of stimulating conversations with conferees.
