Ability can be taught, character has to be exemplified. With Anna Harris you have both. You have one smart leader who is easily taught and is very teachable, and on the other hand you have a person who lives life in front of others with the utmost integrity. She is loyal and always interested in the people around her. I would gladly recommend her to anyone.

I have known Anna Harris for several years. She is a passionate lover of Jesus, and has received a deep personal revelation of the Father's love, which has grown in her so much over the years. She so capably teaches on this revelation and many other topics. She teaches as one who speaks with passion, from personal, heartfelt knowledge and experience. She has been anointed by God to share and impart to others what she has learned. I am pleased to highly recommend her.
