I first went to a Matthew Kelly Foundation even in the fall of 2008 after going through a number of difficult times. His event and the reading I've done in addition has truly changed my life. I am happier, healthier and more truly connected to my faith, family and friends after embracing his principles and ideologies. My life continues to be more fulfilled.

Everything from my family relationships to leading a healthier lifestyle. It's impossible to calculate what the Matthew Kelly foundation has done for myself and the people around me, directly or indirectly.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Inspirational, caring and geniunely indeterred to improve the quality of life for those they help.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand to a more national and global presence. Focus on bringing their practice to helping children as well.

After attending a Matthew Kelly program, I purchased his book, "Becoming the Best Version of Yourself." It changed my life. I have since read "The Rhythm of Life" & "Rediscovering Catholicism". I am discovering my purpose in life and continue to share these books with others. If you have not heard Matthew Kelly speak, put it on your to do list! You will not be disappointed. It is moving and life changing. I would love for Matthew Kelly to write a book for very young children (Preschool- Kindergarten)on the basic life lessons Ex: sharing, loving, forgiveness, diversity etc.

TMKF has an amazing ability to connect with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Whether one is looking for a quick pick me up, a life changing journey or anything in between, TMKF has it. From grade schools to nursing homes. Two words: relevant and powerful.

I started with a 45 min CD and I was compelled to dig deeper: a one hour seminar, a book, a weekend retreat, a week long retreat. To say that TMKF changed my life is an understatement. My entire family is plugged in and we share it with everyone we can.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

...the relevance of their message. Timely and so very easy to to digest and implement.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

...upbeat, down to earth, and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

...change the world FASTER than it already is. More staff reaching more people in more age groups in more countries.

Our son introduced us to Matthew Kelly tapes and books about 12 years ago. Since that time we have read all his books, heard him speak numerous times, traveled with him on pilgrimage to Rome in 2004. We assisted in parish efforts to bring him as guest speaker...to a packed church. We continue as donors as part of the MKF giving away books to children, teens, parishes so others can be inspired by his life changing 'words of wisdom'. Everyone we have ever spoken to about Matthew or the Foundation has had great things to say about how he has positively effected their lives. They continue to expand in ways of helping all ages of people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their willingness and support when we've needed books or CDs to give to church groups, to a community assistance program, to others in need of inspiration. They are always available and helpful.

The first time I heard Matthew Kelly speak was on a video back in 1995. Since that time I have read all but one, I believe, of his books, attended several retreats, and have heard him speak a number of times. The message he brings to all people of all ages is timely, inspiring, and desperately needed in our modern age. Between 2006 and 2009, I facilitated his Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose DVD Series at my home parish once a year by offering a 6 week series for parishioners. My pastor and myself have talked about how these 3 annual sessions have impacted our parish and created a renewed Catholic spirit. What's great about Matthew's writings/talks is that it is practical and applicable to every day living. All of his materials are thought-provoking and lead to important self-reflection which brings about change, growth, and renewed energy for life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my parish. After facilitating Matthew's DVD Series, there was greater Mass attendance by all who attended the sessions, they began participating in other ministries in the parish, and people are using phrases from Matthew's books/talks.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide all the financial support they need to increase their staff so that more could go out and deliver the message.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Engaging with so many people from my parish as well as other faith communities to share the message.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional, very helpful, personable, and professional.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a significant impact in the lives of all people.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of anything that would have made it better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

possibly financial in our current economic climate. It is also difficult to attract the attention of people today due to all the distractions of the world and technology.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Matthew Kelly Foundation is making a difference.

I first read a book by Matthew Kelly during the fall of 2009. I then had the opporunity to hear him speak in December 2009. I was so moved by his message that I wanted to be a part of sharing it, so I contacted the foundation to find out how I could help. They graciously accepted my offer to assist, and I have been thrilled to be able to offer help as they created an amazing new program for elementary school children. This new program has the potential to be truly life-changing for all who are touched by it.

I have used the message of this program with the students in my religous education program, as well as with my own children in our home school, and have seen a beautiful outcome. The children are, without a doubt, touched and inspired by the message.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make the program available to every child in the nation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The opportunity to be a part of helping others know the amazing message of this foundation...that we all can be the very best version of ourselves.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Gracious, appreciative, professional

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world, one person at a time.

Ways to make it better...

I had the time to do more!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the need for more financial resources so that they could do more.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I feel honored to be able to give time to this organization.
