“I would highly recommend Taylor and Associates to any group desiring to address change - whether on a spiritual or professional level!  Merry and Linda have the gift of translating today's problems into stepping stones for tomorrow's growth!”
Director of Faith Development, Saxe Gotha Presbyterian Church

“Linda did an outstanding job giving a presentation to the Gethsemane Baptist Convention of Lexington, Richland and Chester counties.  She was well received by all.  We are spreading her message in all our planned activities and look forward to having her again.”
-Senior Missionary President
Zion Canaan Baptist Church

“Linda, great job with the keynote last week.  It covered the topic and having audience participation was a “new” for our large group. There were many great comments on the evaluations about your enthusiasm and energy. Your “Pass the Twinkies” stress management workshop was a top-rated choice, also. Thank you for giving your time and talents to enrich the lives of Presbyterian Women in South Carolina.”
-Planning Team Chair, Gathering of South Carolina Presbyterian Women

“Fraser Church once again chose Merry Taylor as the guest speaker for our annual Women's Retreat held each January.  We invited Merry back to host our event because she was so well received the first time. Merry brought a serious and timely message all of the women could relate to and presented it in a way that was both humorous and heart felt.  Merry was quite comfortable and related well with the audience and they with her.  Once again, she was well received and the ladies present expressed their thanksgiving and appreciation for a job well done.”
-Rosanne Shirer, Clerk of Session, Fraser Memorial Presbyterian Church

“It has been almost sixteen years since I heard Merry Taylor speak for the very first time.  Since then, she has moved and inspired me in a different way each time I have heard her.  We had just joined our new church and we had the opportunity to attend a family retreat at the beach.  We decided to attend as a family in hopes of getting to know some of its members and become more involved in our new church family. I came away with so much more than new friends.  I came away with a new attitude and an uplifted spirit.  Merry’s message at the conference spoke to me as if she was part of me and she was standing in my shoes. After that first experience we joined a Sunday School class and to my surprise, I found that Merry was a member of that class. She has taught our lesson numerous times and each time she does, she is able to put her imprint on it and makes it seem to speak to me personally.  Merry truly is an inspirational and motivating speaker and I rejoice each time I have the opportunity to hear her deliver a message.”
- Cynthia Jackson

“Merry Taylor presented two programs for our church women’s group.  The titles were “Lifestyles of the Frazzled and Frustrated” and “Are You Really LIVING Your Life?” I have heard nothing but favorable comments – including several suggestions to have her back next year. Materials were well organized and helpful.  Merry presents with warmth and humor.  She is good at encouraging discussions, both general and small group.  I was most impressed by her ability to keep us on topic and to prevent long-winded people from dominating—without offending anyone. I would recommend Merry as a speaker/presenter.”
- Margaret Lombardi, Seven Oaks Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC

“Linda, thank you for your leadership of our 2-day staff retreat last week….Your obvious expertise, your gentle spirit, your sense of humor, your radiant faith…all were most impressive….While some of our conversations were difficult, your gracious leadership helped us through it all in a positive way. We are deeply grateful for the difference you have made in our lives and work.”
-Retired Moderator, Trinity Presbytery

“Merry Taylor has been to our church twice now to speak to our women in our Ladies R Us Women’s Ministry.  Both times we have received a wonderful message on how much God Loves us and how he can use us for His glory. The first time she spoke we had an informal event in our youth building with Pizza and dessert.  She spoke to us on 'Are You Really LIVING Your Life?'  We had a great time and fellowship with each other. The second time she visited us we had a Fashion Show and she was our guest speaker on the topic of 'Are you Feeling like a Raggedy Ann in a Barbie World.'  Merry used her experience and God’s Word to share with us that we are made by God and it doesn’t matter what the world thinks about us as long as we have that wonderful relationship with Jesus Christ.  I would recommend her for any event you may have.  She is a wonderful lady with a lot of warmth, love, and compassion that she shares with those she meets.”
Tina Gregory Lugoff Friendship Baptist Church, Lugoff, SC

“Linda, you made a wonderful contribution to our Sessional retreat with your presentation on methods of communication. I spent my break at work this morning listening in a totally different way to the conversations between the staff. There are so many ways to say the same words and give them different meaning. Thanks to you the entire Session will be paying more attention, not only to what we say, but also to the way we say it through body language.”
-Clerk of Session
