Thank you to those people for the following endorsements:
“You have no idea how your book “My Son, My Gift…Living with Autistic Spectrum Disorder” touched my heart. I intend to do a lot of passing around of this ‘much need read’!”
Carol Weicker, singer/songwriter/recording artist
“We felt honoured that Michelle accepted our invitation to be the guest speaker at our Central Canada District Ladies’ Day Apart in April, 2010. She was gratefully received and many were encouraged by her sincere messages of hope, accompanied by her keen sense of humour. Michelle’s inspirational talks blessed all age groups and we were sent home with a determination to keep on serving our Lord and Saviour. She truly is a blessing.”
Susan Armstrong, District Director, Wesleyan Church Women’s Ministries
“My wife Pat and I heard you speak a few months ago in Barrie where I purchased “Adventures with Jesus…YIKES!”. Thanks for your amazing journey and how you found Jesus and how you share Jesus. You speak from the heart and I know that you are filled with the Holy Spirit. I am not a book reader, but I loved your book.”
"On behalf of all the women who attended our retreat, I want to thank you again for your uplifting ministry to us. You gave us much encouragement about who we are in Christ, and provided us with good challenges to Get Crackin'! and to use the gifts God has given us to serve within our families, our churches, our communities and the world. Thank you!"
Martha Wilson, Women's Retreat Team, Trinity Church,Sarnia

Rev. David Tapley, Georgetown Christian Fellowship
"We found Michelle to be very real and personable. She is a vivacious, fun loving and compassionate woman. Michelle Spoke with humour, yet was able to captivate the seriousness of her topic at appropriate times. Her thoughts and topics were very inspirational and life changing. She was attentive to the audience and able to follow their reactions, which allowed her to create a comfortable atmosphere for all. We definitely felt her passion for the Lord and her desire to serve Him with all her being."
Brenda Clair, President Women's Ministry, Innisfil Community Church
"You were a big hit! Many of the ladies have come to me since to say what a powerful impact your message had on them. The comment I heard the most concerns your challenge to love those difficult people we have in our lives, not as we can love, but as Christ loves them. You gave them hope and encouragement in your words, your music and the example of your life - thank you!"
Susan Rumford, Director of Women's Ministries, Oakridge Bible Chapel, Oakville, Ontario
"Michelle, you were so strategically used of the Lord in a foundation building way for where I've grown today. And in that foundation you laid an important stone that guides me to this day...love."
Denni Roy, Waterdown
"Michelle Sim was the speaker - she was excellent!!!! I especially liked that she acknowledged that although her experience changed her life immediately and dramatically, not everyone would have the same experience and change may be more gradual for others. She had me in tears at times and in stitches most of the time! "
"You are so talented, Michelle. And crazy!
"... I will be even more undignified than this..."
I thank God for your willingness to serve Him, to nurture others, to stretch... your story of last summer with Paul brought me to tears... I hear your heart. Bless you. It is an honour to minister with you."

Your part in last night's program was a perfect fit and the country song with the poor guy pulled out of the audience to sing with you was an obvious crowd pleaser!"
