"It's rare to discover someone who is an excellent communicator who can relate to a wide number of audiences; adult, collegiate, high school, men and women alike. Mary Jo is one of the few who can. She engages her audience as she trains them to defend their faith effectively, employing relevant answers to a seeking generation."

Shirley Moses, Women's Ministry Consultant

When I think of Mary Jo, the first thing that comes to mind is that she is totally sold out to her Lord and her ministry calling. It has been a blessing to see how God is using her to be a powerful teacher of His Word. She teaches with clarity, conviction, and compassion. Her unique approach to teaching Apologetics has truly been a blessing to the women of Texas."
