I had the amazing opportunity to hear Dena Patton speak and share her heart at our New Beginnings conference where she was our Keynote speaker.  It was abundantly clear within the first ten minutes of her sharing that Dena has a heart for people and for using her life experiences to inspire and encourage others.  With “real life” examples of struggle, perseverance, and positive life change, she was able to make an incredible impact on the women at our event.  Dena has a gift and is using it to change lives.

Jeni Barbush

We are still getting kudos for the women’s conference. You were the very best center piece with your keynote and your story was exactly the message for the event. What a wonderful connection we made with you.
