Delaine Shay, Author, Certified Grief Educator, Speaker, Spiritual Director

I have been to many events where Evelyn has been the keynote speaker and teacher. I have followed Evelyn for years because I keep learning life-giving wisdom as she authentically shares how God has appeared in her life. She has used her God- given talents, and has worked hard in her studies to provide people with wisdom in striving to be the person God created them to be. She definitely helped me to do that.

Walter Rasmussen/Pastor

Evelyn has been a leader in recovery counseling helping people get free from the bonds of life-controlling problems, ie: alcohol, drugs, co-dependency, abuse, and negative thinking. She is highly qualified and has thirty years of experience as a chemical dependency and mental health counselor. She has published 14 books on addiction and rebuilding the family after addiction. She is personable and easy to talk to and not only that but she has helped hundreds if not thousands of people find meaning in their lives. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for guidance in recovery. I am a man in recovery from opiate addiction and I know she is a good counselor after spending time with her. Pastor Walter

Peggy Sanders, author

Evelyn Leite is an outstanding presenter, yet beyond that she is compassionate and discerning. Since she has lived some of the problems of life which she hears about from audiences, she demonstrates empathy. Evelyn's enthusiasm and clear voice keep audiences engrossed. Most of all, she 'walks the walk' with Jesus and it is obvious to anyone who knows her. I would highly recommend Evelyn Leite to the Christian Women Speakers group.
