That was an awesome Graduation Retreat for our Grade 12 students – Thank-you kindly Michael to you and your team for yet again inspiring our youth- it was the best retreat ever!
The students just loved it!
I am so thankful I attended this event! It was exactly what I needed to hear.
I had no idea what to expect. As a parent I need help and everything that was talked about helped me more than you will ever know.
Kudos...first time ever, my son said it was the best retreat in his 11 years with the division. Tears were shed, students were moved and my son said his friends felt the same.
Wanted to share the feedback....as a parent.
Thank you for coming to our school,
Everything you said today really inspired me and helped me see things in a new way.
I was having a really hard time, and today I know that I have some big decisions to make.
I'm all in.
You came to my school in Calgary and I really wanted to say your presentation was one of the best things I've ever seen. In the beginning i loved it all, it was like a comedy show for teens and it was a great way to start off. I loved how you got two of my male classmates to hug to show how men are different from girls. It made me and my friend really comfortable and more willing to listen to what you had to say. Even after all the laughing had stopped you still kept us interested. (Something that many other presenters at my school failed to do...
A thing I wish my kids knew - I hope that they learn that this present life is all about forming a great relationship with God through Christ and that it is in our relationships with others that we can truly manifest this. Everything else is secondary to this.
Growing up I wish my parents would have admitted they were wrong sometimes - it would have been nice to hear them say "sorry... and please forgive me."
Parents make mistakes just like kids do. I know that I learn by example so if I heard Mom and Dad apologize more often, it would have helped me admit my own mistakes through my growing years.
