"Caused a change to happen"

Mr. Denning, I am so grateful for you and all that you do for me. Even though I have never met you in person, you have influenced my life and have caused a change to happen. I can't even begin to put in words how grateful I am for you. So simply, thank you.

"Enormous role you’ve had in helping dreams come true"

You have made an incredible difference in my daughter’s life and I appreciate the enormous role you’ve had in helping dreams come true for her that I never thought possible. What an incredible opportunity. Thank you so very much.

"Contagious enthusiasm for life and learning"

You have a contagious enthusiasm for life and learning. My sons have benefitted from the accountability and breadth of ideas that have come from your mentorship. They liked the variety of topics and how you got them to see things from different perspectives. Sometimes the discussions from mentor meetings continued at home and the boys and I actually did something different because of what we learned. You talked with them about daily study and never missing another day. I noticed how this got them to engage at a higher level of commitment and that they really looked forward to you asking them if they were doing it. There is something pretty powerful and motivating to them about this kind of accountability to such a strong, male role model. There also have been times when my son pulls something out and uses it even now, that I know came from your mentor meetings. Sometimes it is hard to tell how much is still at work in them! Thank you for mentoring my boys and, at the same time, mentoring me indirectly and, yet, directly. You have made a difference in our lives. I care about you as a friend and a person and know that you are making a big difference. Still reaching upwards!

"My life is going to be drastically different because of this course"

My life is going to be drastically different because of this course. I learned, in all things, to be genuine, empathetic, and kind. I learned how important it is to listen to and be patient with others. It’s easy to simply listen, share a smile, or help someone out. Yet, it makes a gigantic difference. I want to love and not expect anything in return; to trust others and be trusted; to be grateful for everything I have; to express genuine concern, love, and tenderness for others. Each person is special and has a story and a struggle. I want to go out of my comfort zone to help people and be a light in their lives. I think people who bring happiness to others are blessed. I never understood how my actions could impact and improve others. I have POWER! Real power that I can use to make a difference. Mr. Denning taught us how to use it.

I want to grow and develop all of the facets of my character. I want to share my voice and my talents with the world. I want to accept the challenges that life gives me with strength and humility. I want to become the best person I can be. Before this course, I often was filled with regret. My goal wasn’t to make the other person feel important. My goal was, instead, to show the other person that I was just as good as they were. I constantly compared myself to others. I was afraid of failing...because deep inside, I truly didn’t believe I could achieve my dreams. I wanted to be great, but I wasn’t going about it in the right way. I was emitting a confident and positive attitude—yet, it was being counteracted by my negative thoughts. Now, I realize those are unhealthy thoughts and feel more confident that I can improve my own life. I’ve been trying to use the values, tips, rules, and lessons Mr. Denning has taught me to become a better leader. I’ve talked to my mom about all I’ve learned and we are both working on implementing these values. This class has been amazing and it has changed how I view the world and my life. Thank you, Mr. Denning—you have been the most influential mentor in my life!

HUGE Thanks, Mr. Denning, for an amazing course! I appreciate and admire your leadership and for helping me and other youth learn, grow, and become great leaders. Your awesome approach to teaching has allowed us to take the life lessons you’ve taught into every aspect of life. Thank you for being an "awesomesauce" mentor and helping provide me and others with the skills to excel.

"Thanks for making a difference in his life"

I wanted to let you know that my son said to me, "Mom, I'm so bummed that they shortened class today. I don't want to miss out on Mr. Denning's class. He's so amazing!" This is high praise, indeed. Thanks for making a difference in his life already. Pretty sure that's the first time he was excited about more time in a classroom.

"Thanks so much for the sacrifice you made!"

Happy Birthday, man! I wanted to send you a birthday email with my appreciation and thoughts—kind of like a gift in some way. I've received birthday presents before that have been only words, and they have had the most impact on me. In fact, you gave me that gift when I turned 15. I remember you told me I was, "One of the best 15 year olds that I know, and I mean that sincerely." After you said that, I remember thinking how it was the best gift I got that day. These words, and others you have given me, have been so special to me and just make me want to become the best I can be.

I was reflecting the other day about when you would come to mentor me and Calv for sometimes up to 3 hours! Thanks so much for the sacrifice you made! I wouldn't trade all those hours the three of us (well, four, counting the Spirit) had together for anything. Because all those hours, I was becoming someone else; I was beginning to catch the vision! Sometimes when I think back I stop and say, "Man, I'm sorry he had to deal with me!" Hahaha I wasn't all there:)

My mind goes back to a day when I walked over to you and said "Greg, thank you so much for teaching and helping me." You just turned and said, "No, thank you!"

I can imagine how many challenges you’ve had as a mentor and teacher. How frustrating and sad it must be when a kid or adult just isn't interested—even when you are offering the things you know will help them. You certainly have made a difference for me. I mean that sincerely.

When I think about you, it makes me reach upward and do and seek great things; it keeps me in-check. You told me to find a positive thought that just snaps you away from bad thoughts. One of them is thinking of seeing you, giving you a hug, and being so happy because we did it, we made it. The Mentor and the Mentee experiencing the biggest goal we ever had. It's powerful for me.

I'm so so glad, that God, in His incredible great mercy, allowed us to find you and for us to be taught by you. I'm so glad that Father is just the coolest guy EVER!!

Thanks for being an example of so much good, so much kindness, intelligence, and awesome sauce!
Thanks for showing me a better way, taking me to new heights, dragging me up the mountain to see the view. Thank you for being a leader, an example, a friend, an excellent teacher, a man of God, and a "great force for good."

Happy Birthday, man. I sure love you.

"An ever-present role model"

Thanks for everything. That's a pretty bold statement, isn't it? You hear that term thrown around, but I can sincerely say that to you. Thanks for all the crazy adventures and the example you've set of being someone who takes the opportunity RIGHT WHEN it comes. When you jumped out of the truck to get Josh's cowboy hat in Guatemala; when you helped those blind people in the Medina; when you jumped into the water at Elevation to help a kid; when you decided we all should go bungee jumping. Thanks for the very impactful memories and lessons you've taught me. There have been the literal teaching settings where you've taught me, but also the times where I learn and am touched by you doing what is normal for you.
Thanks for the care and love you've shown when you would always spare the time to talk with me whenever I wanted to chat for a bit; for the times you've hugged me and given smiles and encouragement. When we talk, you treat me so incredibly well (pretty much like an equal) and we have so much fun together.
My most epic memories and adventures—those times where I've seen life, experiences, and people as they really are—almost always happened when you were around somewhere.
You believe in me, and that is priceless! You are an example of a life lived differently—a living and ever-present role model who helps and instructs me along the way to excellence.

"Introduced me to new dreams"

Mr. Denning has inspired me in so many ways, it's hard to count. He introduced me to new dreams and inspired in me a growing love of education. No other teacher or mentor has done that. The very few who tried, failed. I greatly appreciate all his hard work for the class and for me as a person.

"Makes a person think about how to live life"

Man, I gotta say that I really, really respect a guy (and his wife) who is simply deciding how he will live his life and is then just living it that way. I’ll bet his biography is already fascinating. Imagine being one of his kids growing up. Makes a person think about how to live life.

You are an amazing teacher and mentor—the best one I have ever had. You inspire me to become more, to be better, to change the world. Thank you for changing my life from one that was on a path of mediocrity to one that now is on the path of greatness. You have had a lasting influence on my life, one I could never repay. I am grateful you never gave up persisting to become the amazing person you are and for helping me pursue a greater life!

"Thank you for the influence you have had in my children’s lives"

I just wanted to thank you for the influence you have had in my children's lives. I watched the end of my son’s class and could tell it was thought-provoking for him and the other students. I can see how he is starting to push himself to do more and challenge himself in a variety of areas. All of this, and it's only the 2nd week of classes! We have a whole year of growth ahead and hopefully many more beyond this. Thank you for who you have challenged yourself to become and for desiring to bless the lives of others by sharing what you have learned.

"Teaching like that cannot be drawn from an empty well"

"Has come from time spent with Greg"

Our family has known Greg Denning and his family for about five years. Greg started mentoring our two teenage boys and is currently mentoring our teen daughter and our second oldest son. Greg has so much positive energy, enthusiasm, and motivation for life which he shares with his mentees. Our kids have thoroughly enjoyed his mentorship and, I can honestly say, much of their passion for learning, positive mindset, self-empowerment, and ability to be self-starters has come from time spent with Greg. We highly recommend him!

"But what you teach is of far more value"

I can't let the year end without letting you know how much I have appreciated you as a mentor for my daughter this year! As a parent, I can't thank you enough for the inspiration you have given my daughter. Multiple times she has excitedly come down the stairs after class to tell me what you have taught her that day—including how many children you have or that you don't have a TV! That made a big impression on her, she hardly watches TV at all anymore! She told me how well you teach and that you are positive and encouraging— but you tell it like it is. She talked about your class on good parenting and how EVERYTHING we do is determined by our own level of self-discipline. I can't tell you how much I appreciate what you are teaching. It is so good for our kids to have the example of a great person and to be taught by someone besides their parents. My children can learn science, math, and history anywhere, but what you teach is of far more value. Mentors like you are the reason my husband and I continue to make the sacrifice to pay for it. Thank you for what you do. PLEASE keep teaching! ALL my thanks.

"Helped me take ownership of my life"

Your class has helped my take ownership of my life as a whole by learning to own both my failures and my successes. It’s made me want to trade convenience for reality and push myself out of my comfort zone to face it. I've learned how to be my best self by finding ways to accomplish my goals and implementing healthy habits and rituals. I've learned to be a personal leader. I know I still have a long way to go, but this class has definitely changed me for the better because I know how to do hard things and desire to do them.

Mr. Denning, I just wanted to thank you for all that you do! I love your classes and the amazing things you say. I have learned a lot and have been able to apply what I learned from class, the assignments, and the readings. One of the most memorable classes for me was when we were talking about just smiling and how it brightens up not only your day, but also others’. That really hit me. I wasn't really a smiley person, but after that class I started to smile. It has helped me become a happier and more optimistic person. I am so glad I have had the opportunity to be in your class.

"You really, truly helped me learn to start living life on purpose"

Thank you so, so much, Mr. Denning! I am doing better not only academically now, but also inwardly, like finally learning to love and forgive myself and have trust and faith. So it's been wonderful. I decided to take up things outside my comfort zone, so I could try to stretch myself. So, I started ballet, working out at a gym, rock climbing, dancing in front of an entire town (even though I'd never danced in my life until that month), and performing music for people. I just want to let you know that you really, truly helped me learn to start living life on purpose. It took a couple years of floundering and kind of just making a mess of everything, but I think what I learned in your classes is starting to take hold.

Greg Denning is a firehose of energy, excitement, joy, and light! His enthusiasm is contagious and his example and stories are legendary (not kidding). He has been such a great example to my children and to me—as I would listen in on his weekly mentoring sessions with my children. I always walked away with tools to improve my life, feeling uplifted and excited for the journey ahead. His experiences and knowledge help us to look at the truth within ourselves, choose what we want to become, and create the path to get there. We love you, Greg! You are amazing tool in God's hands to help His children have an amazing life!!

"Definitely take to heart and share"

Not one word here that I don't agree with 100%! Thank you Greg. It is apparent that you have done an immense amount of work toward being the best possible you that you can be. Teaching/sharing by example - perhaps the best way to reach and help others find and live their optimal path. Your message is definitely something that I will take to heart and share.

"Living proof that the principles work"

I feel like I have to say thanks a million times over! Your class has been so fun and inspiring. One of my favorite things about this class is your enthusiasm and complete belief in the principles you teach. I've had teachers in the past who just read off of a paper or had the class watch a movie. You're the opposite of that. You're bursting with energy and are living proof that these principles work. I loved being able to share thoughts. I found it very educational to listen to others' opinions, as well as share my own. Thanks again for the awesome classes! :)
