You remember where you were on September 11, 2001, when our Nation's worst terrorist attack occurred. When the Pentagon was attacked on 9/11, everyone 10 feet away on the other side of the wall next to Dan Holdridge was killed, while Dan survived. Feeling handpicked by God to live, Dan has a personal mission to honor the 184 heroes who died that day at the Pentagon. His message of the Purpose Conduit challenges audiences to understand the value of life through gratitude, respect, appreciation of others and hope for a better world.

What is Purpose Conduit?

The Purpose Conduit is the deliberate actions that harness and connect the energy of appreciation to help manifest our purpose in life. Our personal identity is redirected from ourselves to others through a genuine spirit of gratitude and service. This enables us to develop a true value of one-self in the limited time we have in life, share our vision, and leave a legacy of good will.

We have had many positive comments about your presentation "Weapons of Mass Appreciation" at our recent events. I think you touched the hearts of several folks in both audiences, based on their tears and their comments.

I applaud your message and your style of getting it to folks, especially our armed forces members. 911 will live on in our hearts and minds, but unless people like you tell their stories, the memory can have a tendency to fade. Don't let that happen, especially with your message of faith and appreciation for what each of us has been so richly blessed with.

We enjoyed having you as our guest. I hope our paths will cross again soon.

Dear Dan,
We are very appreciate that you took time out of your busy schedule to share your impacting message of hope, inspiration and encouragement with our youth. Your message set the tone for the entire day and lined up directly with our Youth Explosion

We look forward to hearing from you and fellowshiping with again in the future.

God bless,
Pastor Larry Delong & The Youth team

Your spirit-led presence was felt by everyone in attendance at the Fellowship of Professional Women's Organization when you spoke on Weapon's of Mass Appreciation.

God's anointed you and that spirit place of where you live just makes that emotional connection to the heart of everyone in the room. Everyone in the room felt you, felt the message of living our lives in the spirit of appreciation and they were so touched by who you are, what you went through and where you are today in honoring those who weren't as fortunate.

184 around you died, and that's quite a contribution to be living your life to honor those.

Thanks for being Dan!

Yours in Servant Leadership,
Juanell Teague, Author of The Zig Ziglar Difference
