After they appeared on my radio program, "Healing with Your Pet," several times, I asked them to appear personally before my local group, The Minneapolis Theosophical Society. They drew a good crowd of enthusiastic people who were mesmerized by their presentation. They both speak from the heart and really connect with a group. They are excellent public speakers."

"Linda Anderson’s interview on UnityFM radio made my day. Few people discuss topics about animals with such an objective, enlightened, and caring attitude for both humans and animals. Linda discusses sensitive topics in a matter-of-fact and caring manner. This is important to those of us who already know that animals are angels and work miracles in our lives."

"

"Even though I’m not a pet lover, have never had a pet of my own, after listening to Allen Anderson speak I realized what a phenomenal impact these little creatures have on their owners. I enjoyed Allen’s speech very much, and it inspired me to be more understanding when I see people interact with their pets and why people see their pets as part of their family. Allen’s insight of this subject is outstanding, and I would recommend him for any event.”
--Anna Dee Olson, The Amish Lady, author of Growing Up Amish, www.GrowingUpAmish.com

--Arlene Forbes, registered nurse, geriatrics

I feel it is appropriate for any age audience."
--Helen Gurevich, director of programs, Menorah Plaza, Menorah West, Minneapolis

"I've had the good fortune to see Allen speak to audiences ranging in size from a dozen to thousands. The number is irrelevant, because he prepares with the same care no matter how many are in attendance. And everyone feels as spellbound as with any masterful storyteller. So many times I've shared tears of laughter and a changed heart with those around me in the audience. Allen Anderson connects."

  • "Angel animals teach by their example how to work for a greater good. With their ability and willingness to serve and give, they demonstrate the spiritual qualities that inspire people to become better human beings than they ever thought they could be. Perhaps angel animals show how to respond to a greater calling and help someone who needs it."
