Pat Layton came to our church in April 2016 for a woman’s conference using her new book Life Unstuck. Her warm, relational style won the hearts of our women from the very first session. Through her interactive personality exercise, we enjoyed learning about ourselves and our friends and embraced how God created us. For the second session, Pat shared her incredible life story from her painful past to God’s redemptive plan. Her personal freedom journey made it possible for all of us to realize that there is NOTHING that God cannot REDEEM! Through the Freedom Flower Experience, we found answers, forgiveness, healing and release through an hour of silent reflection and prayer. In the closing session, Pat led us through the Unstuck Manifesto as a “battle cry” for our new life of FREEDOM! From the first conversation that I had with Pat, she listened to our needs and caught our vision for the conference. She allowed us to collaborate with her to customize parts of the conference to fit our style. Pat was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend booking Pat Layton for any event!”
