"Brilliant introspective conversations that challenge in a real and responsible way, conventional wisdom!
She has a sympathetic heart and razor sharp mind for those in need!!" RS.
"I, personally, am beyond appreciative for Kasey being in my life. Her kind words alone have given me everything I needed, at the time I needed them. I have been going through the most difficult, depressing experience I ever thought I would have to go through. I can't explain enough how her supportive words have saved me, reminding me that I am NOT alone. Whether it's a scripture or a text to see how I am doing, it's the little things that make a big impact. It's still a process and I dont know when things will start to be "normal" again, but her physical and verbal support, as well as reminders every now and then that she is there FOR ME, is why I needed to give this testimony. I hope everyone gets to experience her kind and genuine heart at some point in their lives, if they haven't already." M.L.
