It was delightful to hear Lisa Hendey express her faith through her love of storytelling. In sharing her experiences as a writer, the students were able to see that they are capable of creating great works too. Lisa Hendey’s Chime Travelers Series have simple, yet powerful messages for children. They teach about virtues and allow children to understand the lives of saints and connect with them on their level.Mrs. Ana Lisa Renteria, Fourth Grade Teacher and Vice Principal, Saint Anne School (April 2018),
"Lisa presented at our Archdiocesan Digital Communication Conference on the general topic and on social media specifically. She tailored her talk perfectly to our needs, situating the reason we do this – evangelization – in our daily reality of time, budget, and available expertise. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we’re excited about the impact this will have for our parishes and schools. I recommend Lisa without hesitation. We are blessed that we were able to have her in the Archdiocese."Jan Potts, Assistant Director of Communications, Archdiocese of San Francisco, (March 2018)
"What a wonderful day - our parish women felt blessed to have Lisa with us. As she presented the eight virtues for generous living, we felt how genuine and human she was. Here was someone who was walking the same walk we were, not someone just telling us how we should live our lives. Throughout the course of the retreat, she connected with the participants on a personal level. Lisa modeled the virtues of generous living that our retreat centered around and reaffirmed for us that God has called us all to generous living. Lisa was so easy to work with in the preparation stages of the retreat and while she was here. She was open to ideas and helpful with suggestions to make the day work for our parish women. We are thankful for the days she spent with us and would love to have her back in the future."Muriel Graham, retreat organizer, St. Patrick Catholic Church, Washington, IL,
Mrs. Hendey visited St Patrick School in Washington, Illinois and spoke to 3 different age groupings of students. Each presentation had the same core message, but each was delivered according to the age group present. She easily adjusted to each grade level and the knowledge the students had of the topics. What I liked the most was how each presentation included active participation from the students. Eager hands were raised to interact with Mrs. Hendey. Her responses were driven by the dialogue that she received from the students. Her genuine interest in the topic, whether the faith aspect or the writing aspect, was picked up by the students. I would definitely recommend Mrs. Hendey and the Chime Travelers series. Thanks, Mrs. Hendey for a wonderful morning for our students!
