What Others Are Saying

“I’m a big fan of Elissa and Becca, better known as The Sonflowerz, and love their heart for young women. This book’s message is so vital right now and it will be a valuable tool and resource in your journey to becoming a more devoted follower of Jesus.”

“The Made to Shine event was a blessing to our congregation at Calvary Worship Center as we witnessed hundreds of girls positively respond to the message. In their breakout groups, the girls were spoken to on an age relevant basis about how to apply the content of the main sessions to their daily lives. The fruit of this event was apparent by the end of the night as more young ladies had formed relationships with one another, and had clearly grasped the awesome concept that God has made them to shine His light into this world! The level of diligence, communication, and excellence that the Sonflowerz put on with this event has greatly blessed our church, and I gladly recommend this event to any host that is looking for such an event to bless the young girls in their church.” – Pastor Mark Bofill, Calvary Worship Center, www.cwccs.org

“Bring Made to Shine to your church!   Becca and Elissa are down-to-earth, servant-hearted sisters who will connect with the young women of your community quickly, speak to them passionately, encourage them lovingly, and share Jesus with them powerfully.   Quite simply, it’s the best ministry of its kind I’ve ever seen.” -Patrick Farrell, Senior Pastor • Calvary Chapel Wichita

“I can’t underscore how much of an impact the Made To Shine Event has had on the young ladies of High Mill Church, as well as the mothers and mentors in their lives. The encouragement they received from the Sonflowerz on how much Jesus loves them, what He thinks about them, and how He has made them to shine, has impacted many of these young girls to begin seeing themselves as God sees them. The testimonies of what the Lord did at the event were nothing short of amazing, and Elissa and Becca delivered a phenomenal set of sessions and time with the girls that have left a lasting impression on our church. Thank you ladies for following your call and for being light to so many young girls around this nation!” -Susan Ferguson, Women’s Ministry Leader, High Mill Church, Canton, OH

“Our congregation really worshiped along with the The Sonflowerz when they led worship at our two morning services and their enthusiasm and reverence as our worship leaders was notable. Don’t hesitate to bring them to your church or event. You’ll be greatly blessed by their radiance and worshipful and uplifting songs.” – Kevin Davis, Calvary Chapel Quakertown, PA

“Central Pennsylvania was so blessed to have The Sonflowerz come to encourage mothers and daughters recently! Their ministry through song lifted our hearts in worship and redirected our focus on who we are meant to be in Christ. Throughout the event, their personal stories and testimonies engaged us and created an atmosphere for us to feel connected. Elissa and Becca are truly refreshing!” – Erin Tray, First Baptist Church, Danville, PA

“Since I’ve met this sister duo, I’ve seen first-hand their heart for God and for ministry. To them, singing and leading worship isn’t work—it’s the overflow of God transforming their lives. They stay until the last girl has shared her heart, even if it’s an hour after the conference is over and they’d really like to go eat supper.” – Pam Gibbs, Girls Ministry Author and Speaker

“The Sonflowerz shared their God-given talents through worship and music with our retreat. They were very great to work with, well-prepared and had a sweet sensitivity to the Holy Spirit.” – Chrissie Hastoglis, Calvary Chapel Central Bucks, Chalfont, PA

“The Sonflowerz bring smiles, hugs, tender hearts and a passion for worshiping Jesus. We love their gift for leading worship & how they interact and minister one-on-one with girls and moms attending our mother-daughter events.” – Michelle Hicks, LifeWay Women

“Elissa and Becca are truly two young women who pursue the heart of God in their lives and music. In everything they did… from getting the mundane pre-show details worked out over the phone and through e-mails, to engaging with our people from the stage, to interacting with people in the lobby, to the time they left for their next venue… Elissa and Becca were a complete blessing and joy… Our people loved them!” – Roger Anderson, Worship Pastor, Christ Community Church, Carmichael, CA

“We have loved getting to know The Sonflowerz over the last few years! These girls are the real deal. They are talented musicians and true artists, but what really sets them apart is their passion for God. We are excited to watch them make an impact on the world!”– Alyssa, BarlowGirl

“If you ever need a humble, talented, Godly group to lead worship or perform a concert then The Sonflowerz are your girls!” – Nigel James, Road Pastor for Third Day

They spent time with our young people, they talked to them, they listened to them, they prayed with them and for them.” – Pastor Joe Ganahl, Morningside Church of God, Brookings, SD

“The Sonflowerz did something very few have been able to do at our church – namely, they crossed generations, ministering to young and old. All of the feedback I received was very complementary!” – Pastor Steve McElvy, Horizon Foursquare Church, Ventura, CA
