What Alums Say 

Church Teams

Like a prayer team with a purpose! Darreby’s excitement and love are contagious! Marie B.

Definition of “Wayfinders” – finding your way surrounded by caring and thoughtful travelers. We are all on a journey, why not share and encourage each other along the way with whatever means we can. It’s fun and a great way to add a new dimension to relationships.   Jackie Pinard

The team retreat helped me to fully clarify what brings me the greatest sense of joy and accomplishment – photography. With the help of my strong and supportive team I was able to bring to fruition my goal of sharing my work with others. In early March I mounted a display of 25 of my images at my church. The response has been great!. More importantly, every time I walk into the church I am astonished that I was able to make my passion real. I would never have taken this risk without the support of my team.   L. C.

As Christians, we are always looking to find ways to be closer to God. I have found that with my Wayfinders team. Through their support I have become closer to them and myself and therefore closer to God.

Goals are much harder to achieve on your own. Team support is awesome. If you are on the fence about joining a team, as they say at Nike, “Just Do It.” Bruce Burnham

It’s probably safe to say that most of us have asked the questions, “What am I called to do?” and “What is God’s plan for me?” Well, if you want to explore the possibilities, consider joining a Wayfinders team and plan to have fun! Two months into our journey together, the six of us have been turned loose by Darreby to continue to share our individual pursuits, celebrating accomplishments as well as difficulties. Growing together in Christ is a wonderful experience. Getting to know each other in an intentional and spiritual way is truly a gift.  Tancy Mitchell

You do not have to have “lost your way” to benefit from an investment of time in joining a Wayfinders group. All of us know, at least to some degree, how to steer our life boat. Wayfinders encourages you to create a map and helps you read the compass.   Leigh Sherrill

Studio Teams

With an encouraging team to hold you accountable, an inspirational leader like Darreby, and a wonderful system designed by her to bring their dreams into micro-actions that can be achieved right away, your life is empowered. Strongly recommend!  P. Zhao

Learning the tools of SFD and micro-movements to get things done was invaluable. And drawing a map of steps to get to your goal is a life-changer for me. I’m teaching it to my kids!  Jim S.

Wayfinders worked for me because it kept me on track. My ideas became action, and I accomplished my goal! Pat F.

What worked for me: learning to ask for help! And having others appreciate what I accomplished. Ellen E.

I always think it is worth it to join a program if you can get just 1 nugget…and Wayfinders offers a gold mine! Leslie M.

It helped me realize that although our dreams may be big, there are always simple and small steps to accomplishing them. I left with a solid foundation of how to tackle my long-term and short-term goals and ultimately a stronger bond with my fellow senior girls (not to mention a new friend in Darreby). Erika L.

Darreby’s evident love of this calling, and her positive outlook that Wayfinders has something to offer everyone, gives hope to each that they are not alone – and that a “dream” can be reachedMarisa B.
