A Chaplain in a Correctional Institution had this to say about Tanya's appearance:
WOW, our inmates are still talking about your time spent with us.....last week. Let me say what a true blessing it was to have you with us. I only wish we would have had more time to sit and talk and share. I went home and gave my boys the basketball and the towel you gave them from the [professional] Arena. I wish you could have seen them. They could not believe that someone would give them something like that and not know them. Your impact on the place was amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you allowed God to do through you and for what you did for my two boys. God Bless you Tanya and I look forward to seeing you in the future.
What a spectacular show you performed! Everyone of us were absolutely enthralled and amazed. I downloaded the video footage I took to YouTube and pray it blesses others as much as your performance blessed all of us. A SCHOOL IN FLORIDA - AUGUST 2016

"Hello, Tanya! You were at my High School in Kentucky today, and I had to eprsonally email you myself; your show today was very inspirational. Just like many other people, I have been contemplating a lot lately with what I want to become in my future. Your show today completely changed my outlook on how I will apply myself. Even if I might fail in the process, I know if I apply myself I can become anything I want to be. Thank you so much, again! Your testimony is truly touching. Thank you for not being ashamed of the Gospel! God will continue to bless you as you bless others! (:

"I want to thank you for visiting my daughter's prison camp in march, 2013. She is a Christian who was led astray but has come back to the Lord. It was very encouraging to see your people. Thank you again.
I am a grieving but grateful mother. You may never know all the 'thank-yous' out there for you, and I will continue to pray for your ministry.

We loved having you with us Tanya. It was a great evening thanks to you. I was not expecting you to jump right in at the beginning of the picnic to play with the kids, and I really appreciated that. Your playing and teaching them gave something to draw them in right away! You just brought a level of enthusiasm and energy to the whole evening. Loved it! I can't believe what you can do with a basketball! God has really blessed you with a unique way to share the Gospel. So thankful for you. We will continue to be in prayer for your ministry and look forward to hear how God uses you.

"Hi Tanya....you spoke and put on an awesome show at our....award ceremony last night....I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful speaker and entertainer you are. My children and I have been discussing joining the church and asking Jesus to be part of our lives. It was touching when you asked if anyone wanted to accept Jesus in their lives and my two children raised their hands and prayed with you. They have talked about you non-stop. I recently divorced my husband after many years of abuse.....I miss Jesus in my life. It has been very hard on myself and my two children. Every day we get stronger and I know accepting jesus back in our lives will complete myself and my children. I don't know if you will actually receive this email, but I wanted to let you know what a wonderful inspiration you were to myself and my children.
Thank you so much,
A Grateful Mother
