"Amy was able to challenge us to rethink our understanding of the cross. The symbol of our faith, is not only contained in specific places designated for faith to be practiced, but experienced and present in obscure and easily overlooked spots. The passion she brings to the topic is palpable and contagious. She sparked conversation within our church and helped open our eyes to see the cross wherever we go. She was a delight and an inspiration to our church and will be wherever she goes." -Rev. Trevor Dancer, Central United Methodist Church


"In this materialistic, cynical world, Amy Bretall’s inspirational message is that it doesn’t have to be that way. We can choose to step off the well-worn road and find the path God wants us to walk, pursue the passions that make us joyful, and live a meaningful life of purpose and love." - Shirley Gilmore, Pathways Church


“I had the privilege of hearing Amy Bretall speak about her mission to spread a passion for the cross as a touchstone of faith. Her open and honest demeanor is authentic and encourages the audience to have a real dialogue.”- Molly Blackburn, Community Christian Church
