We Thirst is one of the most informative, and spiritually uplifting programs that I have ever experienced! I cannot begin to imagine how many people will be helped by this series.

I am so grateful for God opening the door for me to attend the We Thirst series. I have been following and attending addiction outreach events for several years now. I’ve participated in trainings for faith leaders, symposiums put on by the state of PA, and conducted outreach events. I also am part of the Nar-Anon fellowship. I was given the title of Addiction Recovery Advocate, and I humbly try to live up to that title. But this program of yours is a “cut above” everything I’ve been involved in thus far. The presence of the Holy Spirit is all over every moment of We Thirst! The way you have based your program on prayer, spiritual reflection , scripture and Christian music has taken my understanding and most importantly, my recovery to a new level. All of the glory and credit to God for using you and your husband to bring an understanding of addiction, not being told, in this “Light” anywhere. I cannot find the right words to express my extreme appreciation for all that you have done and continue to do. May God continue to use you and your husband to proudly display the example needed to overcome this horrible stigma. Thank you and may God open every door you need opened to help us all recover!

[As a PA LSW] I attended this series with love, understanding, and compassion in my heart to be used when interacting with persons suffering from addiction.

I am leaving the series with the above intact; however, I [now] feel I have a purpose to take those traits and use them to . . . share the message and help others who are addicted [so that they may] receive His grace.

MARCH 2018

This program has renewed my hope so that I can continue to bear the cross that God has given to us, and I do not feel as afraid and ashamed of our family situation. I have attained inner peace again.

Nina’s rendering is the most accurate account of these dynamics that I have yet to encounter. A pathway to wholeness. Hallowed is His name!

I found your presentation to be one of the best I ever attended, and I am in the medical field and have attended hundreds. You presented every aspect of addiction in a thorough, complete and compassionate manner. Your presentation has left me thirsting for further knowledge of addiction and spirituality and a desire to reach out and help those who are sick and suffering. I most definitely will attend future presentations. Thank you for the enlightenment. I feel like a better person for having attended.

Nina presents the topic of addiction with state-of-the-art, research-backed information, combined with warmth, love, and compassion. It is clear that God has led Nina to this mission to lead those suffering from addiction, both the addicted and their families, to a place of hope and healing and ultimately to God.

Your presentation was a blessing to us. The mission that God has placed upon your heart will help many. It is something everyone should hear. It contains tools that any person can apply in their daily lives.

This presentation was excellent and so well put together. It was friendly, encouraging, and very clear. Sure hope priests, deacons, etc. have the opportunity to hear this important knowledge so they can have empathy for the lost sheep.
