Book Chat Comments

Anne Goodwin is one of the most captivating and charming speakers it’s ever been my pleasure to hear. But she is more than just a speaker. By the end of her delightful, insightful and utterly thoughtful presentation, she was the new best friend of every person in the room! Our entire audience – both men and woman alike – came away with their spirits lifted and their hearts ignited after hearing the inspiring story of Annie and the remarkable Francina.

Anne’s “Francina’s Calling!” chat was relevant for anyone, it was moving, filled with words of encouragement, and inspiring! Her story left me compelled to share – I bought a copy of her book, Stay for Lunch, for each member of my organization’s leadership team encouraging each of them, too, to take a pleasurable pause!

The BWP Meetup Community had two, back-to-back, powerful gatherings with two awesome women of purpose and passion. After a night of powerful messages, we were again rocked and inspired by Anne Goodwin, author of the award-winning book, “Stay For Lunch.” Again, gracious, lovely, as well as truly inspiring. Another rainy evening, 15 women came to learn, share and be inspired by Anne.

At Afternoon Tea with Anne Goodwin, our guests were captivated and engaged as Anne shared her story of faith and friendship with us. Her relationship with Francina reminds us all that we should welcome opportunities to touch the lives of those we encounter, and in turn be blessed ourselves.
