Endorsements & Reviews-

“As a psychologist and chaplain who counsels those in crisis daily, I wholeheartedly endorse Keeping the Dream Alive in its effort to benefit mentally ill youth. To say that Harriet was colorful is an understatement. Keeping the Dream Alive is absolutely necessary!”

—Susan Stafford, Chaplain and founder of Wheel of Grace



“Harriet Lorence Nesbitt faithfully attended Media Fellowship International's New York City luncheons hosted by our mutual friend Michael P. Grace II. I am endorsing Keeping the Dream Alive in its effort to benefit mentally ill youth and in loving memory of Harriet and Michael, two wonderful Christians who made a difference!”

—Robert Rieth, Media Fellowship International, Kenmore, Washington



“Harriet Nesbitt ran life’s race with passion. She left us with a dream in her heart: to sell her magnificent, larger-than-life, breathtaking paintings to help support the mentally ill. . . . Her legacy lives on through her charitable heart that criss-crossed every walk of life. . . . A moment I will never forget is when I first laid eyes on one of her most revered paintings—President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jacquelyn Kennedy. It is forever etched in my mind, and so is Harriet and the New York memories spent with this unique and colorful woman.”

—April Shenandoah, author, speaker, and Ambassador of Prayer, Branson, Missouri
