“Having Summer Owens speak at the University of North Texas was an amazing experience. Students were so engaged and wanted to know more. I was so surprised when even our male students took an active role in the question and answer session. Students still to this date have positive words to express about the Life After Birth with speaker Summer Owens program. I will definitely invite her back again.”

“The book was so emotional for me that I could only read one chapter at a time and sometimes I cried through it. One of my students couldn't put it down so she stayed up one night until she had finished reading the whole book. It was a very inspiring experience to read about the way Summer turned things from what could have been negative to a very positive experience. I am still in awe every time I hear her speak knowing what she has accomplished in her short life and the inspiration that she is to many, many others."
