     "One of the greatest evils in the world is the victimization of children. What a help this book will be, not only to the precious victims, but to those who are closest to them. And thank you Daniel, for your bold courage and strength in telling your story. You may still be young, but you are a hero."

     "Webster's Dictionary defines courage as the ability to overcome fear or despair. I have often been told that I am very courageous, because I played a sport at the highest level for so many years. And yet courage doesn't even begin to define playing a game which you love and are well paid for. No, courage has been best exemplified by people like the Elliott family. I cannot imagine going through pain like they have endured, and then having the courage to stand up boldly and write a series of books for others to learn from their lives. 


     I applaud David and Dan Elliott for having the courage to write David's Sword and David's Shield. They are a must read for all people, not just those affected by, abuse of any kind. We can all learn a lot about what true forgiveness looks like as well as how to process through real feelings of pain and anger towards others, especially those who have hurt us in some way. It was both a privilege and an honor to endorse and recommend these books. 


     2 Corinthians 1:3-4 tells us that our God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts us in all our troubles, so that we may be able to comfort others who are in trouble as well. I believe that David's Sword and David's Shield will bring a lot of comfort to many people."

     "Dan Elliott is a gifted young pastor who has a passion for reaching the next generation. Dan is not only diverse in his ministry capabilities, but always eager to serve. We've engaged him at our church as a worship leader, guest speaker for teens, and youth ministry adviser. Highly recommended!"

     Dan Elliott is a passionate communicator who inspires those he speaks around to draw closer to God. His heart is humble and submitted to what he knows God has called him to do. He’s a great person on the stage but an even better person off of it!

     Dan’s passion for the Word of God is evident in the way he preaches as well as his life off stage. He is a man of integrity and a great brother in Christ.
