“The Lipscomb University College of Education is so appreciative for sharing your journey in publishing three beautifully diverse children’s books ColorFull, ThoughtFull and GraceFull, with our Diverse Learner's class! Your work will aide young educators as they strive to create multiculturally rich classrooms for all students. Dorena, your passion for creating learning environments where diversity is taught from a strengths-based perspective is evident in all that you do and I’m so thankful to be able to join you in this important life-changing work!” Lee Kirkpatrick, Ed.D.



“It was our school’s distinct pleasure to host Dorena multiple times this year. Through each visit she shared another of her books with our students - and each time they took to heart the message found within. Dorena was relatable, entertaining, and genuine every time she spoke with our students. I would highly recommend her to any school or organization looking to share a message of love, acceptance, and tolerance.” Rick West, Ed.D. Head of Lower School, Franklin Road Academy


“Dorena Williamson was one of the biggest highlights of our recent family ministry conference. Her gift of speaking and ministry is dynamic and engaging. In both a keynote address and a panel interview setting, Dorena instantly connected with our audience and clearly articulated her powerful message. She’s incredible and we’re thankful for how God is using her in such wonderful ways!” Michael Walley, Event Producer, ETCH Family Ministry Conference

“Dorena was a true blessing to our student body. God has gifted her with an ability to relate to children and discuss difficult topics in a non threatening way. She is a fantastic speaker and held our entire audience of preschoolers through fourth graders captive with her story. The Spirit overflows from her heart.” Melanie Grogan, Elementary School Spiritual Formation Co-Director, Lipscomb Academy
