  • If a person were to ask God for advice on how to be a storyteller, God would say, You’re barking up the wrong tree. Go ask Elaine Blanchard.

    Rev. Dr. Michael Schiefelbein,
    Pastor, College Avenue Congregational Church, Modesto, CA
  • Elaine Blanchard is the most gifted storyteller I have ever known. She has rare talents that she can use to make us laugh or cry or just sit in awed silence. I am grateful that she is using those talents to lead others to deeper awareness and to stronger commitments.

    Dr. Marsha Walton Ph.D
    Professor of Psychology, Rhodes College, Memphis, TN
  • I get the feeling that Elaine has probed the depths of the human experience and has come up bubbling with optimism and hope. I would travel a long way to bask in the wisdom and charm of this most delightful teller of tales and weaver of dreams.

    Rev. Dr. Brooks Ramsey
    Individual and Family Therapist, Washington DC
