Comments Attended the Inspire evening at Warehouse Church last night and was spellbound, even though I had heard some of your testimony previously at Beth's home. You are a dynamic speaker and kept me enthralled. Your words of encouragement touched my heart and I left the meeting feeling totally inspired to press on in every area of my life. I can't wait to read the book! God has raised you up and you have grabbed onto the hem of His garment. Don't let go! Blessings.

Comments Irene, You are a gifted and passionate speaker! I cried through your testimony on Tuesday night and was on the edge of my seat as you shared about your life. You are so positive and encouraging and have a great sense of humor. You made the evening delightful and fun. Thank you for blessing us with your story and your warm heart! Keep dreaming, keep believing and we'll all keep cheering you on. Gratefully, Beth

Comments Dear Irene, I am currently reading your book "Shattered Dreams" I work at a christian bookstore and came across the new release as it was being received in our store...I picked it up to skim through it and haven't put it down since! Your story is heartbreaking, yet I can grasp your strength and hope through out your story! I can relate to your sometimes "bull headedness" if I may put it, and have found myself laughing out loud at some of your antics! As a married woman myself, I felt all the emotions you were describing about having to "share" your husband...it all was truly griping to me! Be blessed my friend! In Christ's Love, Chandra Hopson

Comments Irene, you are even more amazing than I ever realized before. Of all the years Ive known you, I never knew of the trials and adverse situations you dealt with in your earlier years. This now makes clear some of the statements Ive heard you make in the nineties about how you never got to be involved in business or do public speaking, which were things you always dreamed of and recently had started doing. You always spoke of wanting to do something for your children, friends and others who needed a helping hand; now what a beautiful way this is going to afford you to accomplish that dream. I especially remember in the mid-nineties when we did some marketing together and you were so exciting and an inspiration to all of us. I will never forget one of your testimonials in a public presentation, so effective and moving, I must share it here. In a Sunday evening presentation, several members of a black congregation came to the marketing meeting direct from church. As you explained your joy and success (in that breathless nonstop

Comments As you explained your joy and success (in that breathless nonstop speaking you know what I mean and others will when they hear you) and told how many children and grandchildren you had then, your true enthusiasm filled the room and so moved one of the black gentlemen he pumped his fist in the air and shouted out Go Granny Go!, that brought down the rafters. Thank you for that memorable moment. I also want to thank you for the wonderful card you sent last December, it came at a very low point in my life and will be glued to the inside cover of your book for safe keeping. Love you and your precious, faithful Hector; I miss seeing you around Anchorage; come home sometimes and did you ever Go Granny Go!

He has spoken lovingly and affectionately over the years about you and Hector and was thrilled beyond words to learn of the release of your book. I can't wait to read it.

Comments I would like to thank you for your tremdous courage to write your memoirs into a book. I saw your interview on Anderson Cooper 360. I wrote the name of your book down and went to Barnes and Noble the next day and bought it. It was the only copy they had l> eft. I couldn't put it down. I'm an avid reader especially when it comes to memoirs. Truly, yours in one that will stay with me forever. > > Just reading it made me thankful for all the little things I have in my life that I take for granted. Even though I don't know what its like to live a polyamist life, I do know whats its like to love someone and not have them there for you. I love my husb> and, but I never get to see him much. He works offshore on a drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. So I go weeks without seeing him and when he comes in he has so much stuff to take of that I feel like I'm playing second fiddle to everyone else that needs h> is attention. I'm not complaing. I've been living this life for 16 yrs now and I'm just use to it. He

Comments Irene, The book is great. I'm friends with Jennifer Lebaron here in Austin, Texas and she sent out an email promoting the book. I bought it this weekend and have not been able to put it down. And, I don't even like reading. It is just so differnt than how I was brought up that it is almost like fiction. I'm just now to the part where you married Verlan. I'm looking forward to reading more tonight! Cheers, Amy :)

Comments Irene, Thank you for telling your story. I'm wondering what your relationship is like with your children who are in polygamous relationships. Are their experiences similar to yours or considerably different? Blessings to you as minister to hurting women throughout the world.
