“Bernadette Todd is not only a friend and a faithful member of my church; she is an extraordinary person with an extra-extraordinary testimony for our Lord. If you have never had an opportunity to hear how God has worked in her life, I highly recommend that you do so, but be prepared to be moved from laughter to tears to rejoicing - all in one hour.”
Dr. Rick Blackwood, Senior Pastor
Christ Fellowship, Miami, FL
"To say that Bernadette Todd’s message is inspirational is an understatement. Bernadette is filled with the presence of God and from her wheelchair she stands tall as a witness to what is possible when we have faith. For our congregation, her story was a call to action for every Christian to strive for their God given potential for Jesus Christ. I can tell you that lives were changed because of her story, and I was one of those lives. Her story is our story and needs to be shared with as many people as possible. If you want to see your church transformed for the sake of Jesus Christ, then share Bernadette Todd and you will be sharing hope for the future."
Tom Nelson, Pastor
First United Methodist Church of South Miami
"The Apostle Paul gave us this important truth: "... For Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Cor 12:10) Bernadette Todd is a modern day, living example of God's strength perfected in weakness. Encourage your people by sharing Bernadette's moving account of experiencing God's power in the midst of a life filled with physical hardships."

"Enchanted, Inspired, and Challenged! Bernadette captivated our ladies with her humor and "girlfriend" personality and charmed her way right into our hearts. Her inner strength and faith permeated through her testimony of her trials to His triumphs. Could Bernadette be a contemporary, biblical Ruth? Not letting her disabilities or the things that she can't control, take control, God truly rewards Bernadette with a modern day romance and miracle of His love. Come hear a story of a lifetime, yours will be changed because of it!"
Gael Torcise, Women's Ministry Consultant
Florida Baptist Convention
"Without a doubt, Bernadette Todd's testimony is the most moving story of perseverance and love that I have ever heard. She absolutely captivates an audience of all ages with her sweet voice and beautiful way of telling about her amazing struggle with Muscular Dystrophy. Obviously, God has chosen to use Bernadette, one of his weakest vessels, to demonstrate His awesome power of love. Every church needs to hear this truly incredible story."
Dr. Bill Hagewood, Pastor
Stanton Memorial Baptist Church
"Bernadette's testimony and message is one presentation not to be missed. It grasps the audience from the beginning and takes them on a journey that is filled with despair, courage, humor, and inspiration. As all good performances do, Bernadette leaves the audience wanting more...and in her case, it's wanting more of God."

"While serving as pastor of First Baptist Church of Perrine for 35 years, we had many inspirational speakers, including David Ring three times, and Joni Erickson Tada twice. Let me assure you that when our people heard Bernadette Todd's testimony, they were equally inspired and challenged. I highly recommend that you invite her to speak in one of your morning services, and your church will be blessed."
Rev. Tommy Watson, Pastor Emeritus
Christ Fellowship (formally First Baptist Church of Perrine), Miami, FL
"Bernadette's testimony is not only a courageous story of perseverance, it is also proof positive that God works all things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. I appreciate that Bernadette's presentation is very God-focused and evangelistic. I recommend her for any church of any size...from thousands to dozens. Bernadette will bless your people!"
Rev. Howard Harden, Pastor
First Baptist Church
“On Mother’s Day, we invited Bernadette to come and share her story of triumph. Mixed with humor, Bernadette both encouraged and softened the hearts of those in attendance. We are looking forward to having her again to deliver this inspiring message of hope. Every church needs to have Bernadette come and bear witness of the truth we proclaim: God has a special purpose for everyone!”
Alan Floyd, Senior Pastor
First Baptist of Middleburg, FL
Our young people were hooked on every word! Bernadette’s testimony was a powerful display of the work of God in a person’s life. We had several young people make decisions for Christ as a result of Bernadette’s testimony. I highly recommend her for your school.
Dade Christian School
"Bernadette Todd’s message reminds us all that, "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard...the things which God has prepared for those who love Him!” Our church body was challenged, changed and encouraged by this young woman's dynamic spiritually inspiring story of what incredible things Jesus Christ can do with a willing surrendering servant seeking His will. I highly recommend Bernadette to any ministry. Invite her to speak at your church and rest assured that all will be blessed and refreshed by Bernadette's triumphant testimony!”
