This has truly been an amazing evening for me. I feel as though this evening was meant just for me. My heart has been so heavy for so long, but now it's as though I have gained a new ability to look to the only source of true strength! Thank you!
This event and Tracy's message has moved my heart and made me evaluate my relationship with Jesus. I want to live for Jesus and give him praise.
Tonight was very special. I divorced just a couple of years ago, and well it took that to bring me back to God. Everything tonight was a strong reinforcement and I can't begin to explain how wonderful it feels to have God as my anchor. Thank you and God bless.
Tonight I realized it is okay to mess up or go through a trial, but I must trust in my Lord to make it through the storm. I have accepted Jesus Christ into my heart as Lord and Savior. I have been blessed tonight and I want to thank you for your prayers."

I always feel understood and not alone when she shares her testimony and life challenges. Her transparency lets me know she is the "real thing." I can attest that she is the same woman off stage as she is on. It is obvious that Tracy's heart is to see people become whole and free through Jesus Christ. Her speaking style makes me laugh and cry in one sitting! Her faith in God is contagious. I always leave her presence feeling inspired to draw closer to the Jesus. Tracy is truly a mouthpiece for the Lord.
