speaking of annIt is so wonderful to hear what readers say about ann, her ministry and her writing. Here are a few snippets from the comments section ...
Ann, My name is Sara and I am 45 yrs old and single. I am sure thousands of people tell you how your books changed their life, but I have to tell you that your 'I love the word impossible' changed mine. I was a teenager when my Young Life leader gave me your book. To this day, it is one of my cherished posessions. She knew I was struggling with self worth and identity and just wanted to share Jesus with me. 30 yrs later I still struggle somewhat with my identity, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt Jesus loves me in my singledom, in my brokeness. -Love, Sara Gwathmey
Ann...you continue to inspire me. I love how you expose your raw heart. It makes me feel less bad about exposing my scarred up heart. We all feel close to you, Ann... Each of us feel like you could be our best friend...someone we could... show the very ugliest side of ourselves and yet you would still love us. You may not exactly like us...but we know you would love us. I wish I could give you a big hug and let you know just how much I care about you. Thanks for your ministry to my life. -Claire Record
I first heard u speak when I was in 5th grade in Salem, Oregon at Jesus NW. Evie and Honey Tree were there too. It was 1977 I... believe. It was when I heard u speak I felt God telling me that He wanted me to also be a public speaker and author and shine His love like u did. I was an awkward, very shy grade schooler and I remember desiring that but scared to death. God has used you in my life as a mentor and encourager and you mean more to me than you'll ever know. You hold a special place in my heart. You gave me tremendous hope through your books during my darkest times even as an 11 yr old and through my college yrs. God has truly annointed u and I just wanted u to know how much He has used u in my life. :) Lots of Hugs! -Linnea Baker
I love your blog. Thank you for writing it and encouraging me in my sometimes lonely, hard, broken world. You inspire me to have hope and to keep giving...to always look for Jesus everywhere I go. Thank you for blessing my life for the past 20 plus years! -Donna

It was on my 20th birthday, May 21, 1972 that friends invited me to a Nazarene church. There I heard God speak to me for the very first time through you. I accepted the Lord that day. Now I am entering my 30th year of devoted ministry. God has given you such an amazing gift. And to think after all these years of searching, I have found you. Be encouraged. God has and will continue to use you to change and save thousands and thousands and thousands of lives. -Don Gunderson

I had a couple of cassette tapes of yours back in college. I was coming back to the Lord after a couple years of rebellion in high school. I listened to them all the time and had them on in my dorm room at Biola much of the time. I remember them so well you still impact my life! -Cindy Wild
I think your posts are wonderful, each and every one! It means so much that you share your struggles and faults. -Judi

Anne...my name is Jason. You spoke in Melfort, Saskatchewan, Canada. I was pre-school (perhaps three or four years old). I do not remember what you said but something about your presence stimulated a conversation with my mom. I knelt by my bed and asked Jesus into my heart. My experience of growing theologically and my own development in my relationship with Jesus has been immense. I'm in my forties and in the ministry. Thank you for being one of the ways through which God's grace touched my life. God bless you -Jason C Boyd
Whenever asked the name of my favorite, most influential author, I have written Ann Kiemel :) I have lost count how many times I have read and reread your books. -Joanne
