Read an interview with Kayleen Reusser at

"Our church had the pleasure of having Friends of the Heart come to speak for our women's retreat. What a blessing! Their different personalities each contribute to a wonderful blend of transparency, inspiration, and challenge to walk with God. Their talks were grounded in scripture, yet were well-balanced with personal examples and illustrations. Our ladies left encouraged and exhorted. Shirley's presentation of the book of Philippians from memory is not to be missed. We really appreciated their ministry to the women!"
   --Bonnie Solberg, Director of Women's Ministries, Wethersfield E Free Church, CT

"Kim, Shirley, and Janine are genuine, witty, and interact effectively with women from all walks of life. The love they have for God and each other is evident. As a result, this was the best women’s conference we have ever held at our church."
   --Kim Garosi, Women’s Ministry Organizer, Palmyra, PA

“The event is inspiring, encouraging and helpful for women at various points of the faith journey. Shirley, Janine and Kim provide a good balance of perspective and talent. The personal stories and insights of the three dedicated Christian leaders will touch women who are dealing with past hurts, seeking to serve God in the present and to look to the future with confidence."
   --Barb Yorks, retreat participant, Elizabethville, PA

And a book review by Jennifer Monahan--
"Guilt trips...we've all got them and we've all been along for the ride. What I love about this book is the personal stories, the confessions of taking a wrong turn into guilt, but then finding the way out and back into joy. It's encouraging and uplifting. The stories are short, to the point, and highly relatable. Shirley, Janine, and Kim make a great team of co-authors bringing a wide range of situations we can connect to."
