“We come to Blue Lotus to get away, 'be normal', laugh, relax and try new things. Thank you so much for the wonderful day. The picnic was wonderful, the campfire was perfect for roasting our hot dogs and I just love Blue Lotus! We had a wonderful summer again and can’t wait to schedule our next year’s visits. Thank you, thank you!”  -Kari, Portal, Inc. 

“The guests had a wonderful time relaxing, swimming, canoeing, eating, and just enjoying the fresh air in a very safe and comfortable place.  Each one of your volunteers added special gifts to the day and your cheerful service was a blessing for them and for us."  -David & Nancy, Hephatha

"I love to experience the animal medicine of the farm –– there are so many sacred encounters with their world, and it awakens something deep within me. When I’m at the farm, they become a part of my world again, and I become part of theirs. Time at the farm is always an opportunity for me to reconnect to spirit, to reawaken my heart. And if I stay for any longer period of time at the farm, my world begins to shift. Things slow down, my mind becomes even quieter, and I feel something touching the energy of my heart. Things become sacred again. And there is a deep feeling of ease and grace."  -Ragani

"Thank-you for making me feel so at home and comfortable. The last few days have been very inspirational and I have learned a lot of life-changing techniques and ideas, but staying here with all of you really made it a completely wonderful experience. From the first step I walked into this house, your warmth & the spirit of love filled me up and I am ever grateful. I know our paths will cross again but, meanwhile, blessings and love to all."  -Virginia, Hong Kong

"Thank–you for everything!!  Your hospitality was greatly appreciated.  I love the farm!!!  You (Susan) are a great cook and your meals were served with love."  -Kathleen, Madison, WI

"Thank you everyone who did all this work for our outing. It was especially wonderful for me as it was my first outing after being ill. I was so blessed with contentment and peace. Thank everyone and may God doubly bless you for thinking of others."  -Audrey, Agape Community Center of Milwaukee

”Starting with the long driveway we were transformed into a beautiful world of caring, sharing, talking, listening and laughing.  We are still smiling.”  -Bob, Mary & Rebecca

“I heard your interview this morning on WMYX.  It was so inspiring.  I am a sixth grade reading teacher in Kettle Moraine (Dousman),and we recently finished reading a book called The Acorn People, about disabled kids attending a summer camp that was designed for kids without disabilities.  It is a heartwarming story about the kids and their brave counselor.  It is based on a true story.  I printed out most of your website to share with my students tomorrow.  Thanks for inspiring us, and we'll see where that will take us. Thanks!”  -Lea Boyd
