I got married at twenty years old and had my first child 2 years later. Being so young I was clueless about raising this baby. But a dear friend (bless her heart!) shared with me a book she was using. She mentioned a few others in her church who read the same book and practiced its principles. We all attended the same bible study group and indeed I noticed that their children were all well behaved. This was attributed to the parenting principles in the PFP book and so I ordered my own copy. I read and read and totally agreed with everything mentioned in the book. I applied all that I learned and it worked! I had my baby sleeping through the night in a matter of weeks. I got comments that "I was lucky" to have such a calm and content baby. But I was also warned that it may not be so easy with next baby.

Well, I just had my fourth child. My 3 month old boy is now sleeping through the night since 6 weeks. Just like his three siblings. They all have been happy, "easy" babies. I get enough rest. I'm able to function as a wife, mother, homemaker, driver, coach, name it! Our life couldn't get any more organized. We learned that the key word is balance. Our days are hectic but we're able to make time for each one. Our children are secure and confident. They know they are just as important as the newest addition to the family. Because we can schedule everyone's activities, no one is left out.

My oldest daughter is now 11 years old. I also had my critics years ago but now I have "converts" as well. I have shared this book with so many friends and they are all thankful for it. I must say that "Babywise" is the best book that came along for parents.

Thanks to the Ezzos and GFI, God bless you for your ministry. Posted on January 9, 2007

My note today is of great praise and thankfulness to what God is at work doing through GFI.

We were first introduced to Gary and Anne Marie with a GKGW class at our church in New York, 1999.

The Ezzo's made a live appearance at Hyde Park Baptist Church subsequent to that class, and we attended. We had no children at the time, yet Gary and Anne Marie took personal private time with us during lunch break to encourage us that our family was started, and God would add to our number according to His will!

November 21, 2005 our little Adeline was born. By the end of Jan. 2006, following "Along the Infant Way" she was sleeping through the night. Her weight gain and height growth has met each percentile increment with average to better than average numbers.

She just turned one, and she will have a baby brother joining her in March of 2007.

It grieves me, to hear from within the Christian media, our own place of worship, and the like, criticism of our choice in parenting philosophy, however, looking into Adeline's bright, alert, healthy, attentive, loving face each day puts all the critics to rest in our minds.

Thank you all for the articulate work in regard to support for the Ezzo's. It is that thorough attention to detail that brings the truth where it can be heard.

God has and will continue to bless this ministry!

Your materials have been awesome and I know that I am a better parent because of them! It is very easy for me to see that I have a happier, healthier baby, and no critic could convince me differently. The critics have misrepresented your ministry and I believe that you have clearly taken the high road of integrity in your responses to them. Thank you, Pastor Jeff Miller Posted on November 11th, 2006

I just wanted to say thank you to whoever put this website together. It really breaks my heart to see the attacks that are on the internet, especially if new parents are searching for some sound wisdom. I love the wisdom and suggestions that come from this material and it has really helped us stay focused on our goals and given us such great ideas that we never would have thought of on our own. Our children are only 3 and 1, but I can already see the difference it has made with them, especially in our 3 year old. Thanks again and God Bless! Posted on October 18th, 2006

While I was pregnant with my daughter, Natalia, I read about attachment parenting. At the time it sounded wonderful…sleeping with my baby, carrying her with me everywhere, never allowing her to cry. When she was born I gave it a try. Well, sleeping with her was impossible. Either she would wake me or I would wake her and she wanted to nurse about every 1-2 hrs. Natalia was cranky all the time. The doctors thought she might have acid reflux. The women in the breastfeeding group told me to wear her all day. Well, my back and neck couldn’t handle it and again she wanted to nurse frequently. When I did decide to put her down on her own to sleep she cried and I thought I had to rush to her side. I was so sleep deprived I felt like I was losing my sanity. Then my neighbor told me about the book “Baby Wise.” She has 5 children she raised by it! I pinned my eyes open and read the book. After a couple of weeks we were on the right track and by the time Natalia was 14 weeks old she slept 12 hrs. through the night. One morning we had to wake her up! My husband and I are rested and feeling great. We can be better parents on a good night sleep. Posted on October 5th, 2006

In 1995, we had our first little baby boy. We spent much of the pregnancy reading any parenting books we could get our hands on, most of which were borrowed from the local public library. We were well immersed in how and why we should use attachment parenting with our new baby. However, by the grace of God, our new little boy didn't read the same books we did. :-) He spent much of the first two months of his life screaming, which led to more and more disharmony in our home. We didn't know what to do!

One evening, my wife got on a chat room on the Internet and met a woman named Anne Marie who kindly mentioned some helpful things that we could do to help our baby learn to be calm and to sleep better. We were amazed when her ideas immediately worked. She recommended that we purchase Babywise (we didn't know her husband was one of the authors), and when we had read it, we had to acknowledge that its advice was more biblical than most of the other books we had read.

We soon purchased Preparation for the Pretoddler Years and eagerly appled the principles in it. Our little boy grew to be a blessing to others and to us. We later took GKGW with a local church.

We have been blessed to use the Ezzo's materials with all of our five children. We are thankful for the godly advice we've received from them and for the foundation that has been laid in our home.

I want to personally thank you for your book On Becoming Babywise. I, along with my husband are foster parents, to a child whom many would've called a drug baby. We were totally prepared to have a screaming child on our hands when we brought her home from the hospital.

We began the baby wise book techniques on her, and she took to them almost immediately.

She is now 3 months old, and sleeps 12 hour nights. She is a very well adjusted baby. If this can work on a child coming from different circumstances than most, it can work on ANY baby.

We are also looking forward to taking your growing kids Gods way course at our church in the next few weeks.

Thanks again!

My wife and I first came into contact with the Ezzos and their material more then 15 years ago when we took GKGW at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley prior to the birth of the first of our 6 kids.

I am intimately acquainted with the events surrounding their troubles at Grace Community Church and with the staff there. In fact that was one of the primary factors that my family left that church after being members there for about 15 years. I talked to Elders and staff at Grace Community Church, I talked to the Ezzos and others in (or who were in) their ministry and I talked with the pastor of the church that they were members of at that time. I realized that more than anything the Ezzos displayed the graciousness of Christ throughout the whole situation, which I can not say for the others I spoke with.

Although I would have understood a negative comment or justification of their position from the Ezzos, they never had a bad word to say about those who were disparaging them. The main realization I took away from that was that the Ezzo's are very gracious and forgiving people who are willing to sacrifice some of their "rights" for the sake of peace among the Body of Christ.

We are now members at another local church which is very supportive of Grace Community Church.

We are not currently involved in their ministry, but we have taught GKGW, Prep for Parenting and Prep for the Toddler Years. My wife was a Contact Mom for many years, and I've used Teen Wise in our community extensively working with at-risk teens and their families.

A friend of mine who has 3 children and who all slept through the night when they were 6 weeks old gave me the Preparation for Parenting when I was pregnant with my baby, Preston, who is now 6 months old. People who write against the Ezzos have not read the book completely. You do not teach about starving your baby or not loving your baby. You teach the opposite. It amazes me that some people are against putting your baby on a schedule. As a first time mom, it was so wonderful to know why my baby was crying (if he needed a nap or if he was hungry, etc) and not have to guess or always think that he was hungry. My baby slept through the night when he was almost 9 weeks old. If he hadn't had a snuffy nose and thrush, I believe that he would have slept through the night earlier. It is so WONDERFUL that my baby knows how to sleep. It is absolutely liberating just placing my baby down for a nap or for the night when he is awake. Thanks to your wonderful God-given wisdom & sharing it with the world, my baby is the most peaceful, happiest baby that I know, and everyone at my church always remarks about how happy he is. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Mr. & Mrs. Ezzos from the bottom of my heart!!! You are a God-given blessing to the world. Posted on June 11, 2006

Intelligent; Biblical; Excellent. These are words that I have to use to describe your website, Ezzo Truth. My husband and I have been involved in the ministry for 13 years, using the programs and well as teaching them. Over the years, when we have read of rumors about Mr. Ezzo on the internet or heard negative things about him from potential class members, we have been disheartened. But, because we feel everyone has a right to their own privacy, we have not and would not investigate or pursue any private issue that we heard about. My husband and I had come to the conclusion, then, that we would continue to teach the principles and implement them in our family, believing that they are inspired by the Holy Spirit, and then pray for the man. We are well aware that we all have clay feet and Satan will work over time on those whose ministry is having a significant impact on this fallen world. So, we felt that even if the "rumors" were true, we would just continue to pray for the Ezzos and their family, but that it did NOT nullify the principles themselves. With that said, when we came across your website, I have to admit that we were relieved. Though the principles stand on their own without the man, to know that the man continues to live by the principles encouraged us. The website itself, in its tone, completeness, thoughtfulness, and accuracy is a testament to the Growing Kids God's Way principles being lived out in the lives of those of you that have put the website together. We feel that much of GKGW curriculum is about living "The most excellent way." This website does this. So, thank you for setting up the website. For addressing the rumors and issues that have come up over the years. For not being too afraid of "stirring up dissension" to speak the truth. And I thank the Ezzos as well, for being humble and transparent enough to allow us, those of us that share in their ministry ideals and believe in the principles though we don't know them personally, to take a glimpse into their personal and even private world. We will be sure to pass this website onto our class members and to anyone that approaches us about concerns about the Ezzos and the program. God Bless all of you, and let's not lose heart in running the race set before us! Sharing your passion for the truth Posted on June 11th, 2006

I am a 32 year old widow with a 6 year old son. My husband and I waited 5 years before having children. We busied ourselves working with the church and being mentored by couples with children. I was mentored specifically by Amy D. in Louisville, KY. After watching her three children interact, I wanted to know what she was doing. She let me in on the little secret of Growing Families international. She and her husband hosted GFI classes and two years before we were even ready for a baby, we took the 18 week video class, Growing Kids God's Way. This helped my husband and I get on the same page so far as parenting and vocabulary. It helped me work with the children in my daycare as well. I continued to be mentored by Amy and poured over the Prep. for Parenting book. In the fall of 1999, our son was born. The first months were a breeze after 5 years of mentoring and watching Amy with two consecutive babies. My husband and I were assistant leaders in a Prep for the Toddler Years class in the spring of '00. During this time, he started to experience symptoms of Brain Cancer. When our son was 8 months old, my husband passed away. It has been a difficult road, but because my husband and I were on the same page with parenting, we discussed many things and in how we wanted Josiah to turn out. I am confident in my parenting and prepared before situations arise because of GFI. I continue to purchase materials as my son gets older, I continue to attribute his wonderful "disposition" to GFI principles. From a young age, Josiah has been a blessing and thoughtful toward people. When I see adverse attitudes and habits developing, I return back to the basics which I learned from my years in GFI. Thanks so much Mr. and Mrs. Ezzo. I appreciate all you have given to my family. Posted on May 23rd, 2006

Thank you for this site! We are a long time GFI family who has greatly benefited from the Ezzo's ministry. It is nice to be able to refer critics to the truthful site about the GFI ministry. Posted on May 23rd, 2006

I was the third of three sisters to try Along the Infant Way. Between my two sisters, they have successfully implemented this style of parenting with six children of their own. Of course they wanted me to be successful too and I am so glad they did. So in 2004 we had our first child. She slept throught the night at 9 weeks, I nursed her for eight months, and she is a delight even now to those around. People are amazed that she will remain in bed in the mornings until her dad or I go get her. She continues to sleep 10 hours or so a night to this day. (she's 21/2 years old now) Little did we know what God had in store for our family. This year in February we gave birth to a set of boy/girl twins. Determined to only have two children, God turned two healthy pregnancies into three beautiful children. I honestly believe he makes all things possible because without the Ezzos guidance in this area, we would have gone insane by now. Instead, we have two new babies that slept through the night at ten weeks of age. They are healthy, happy children. And our schedule allows us the time for all we need to do each day and have energy left over for each other as husband and wife. And big sister, Lucy loves them very much. I can see a transformation of the heart with her each day. We're working throught the Growing Kids God's Way cds to hear what's in store for her ages 3-8. I'll never be able to thank my sisters enough for their advice to parent this way. Thank you Gary and Anne Marie! Posted on May 27th, 2006

What a great site! My wife and I were blessed to attend a weekend seminar by the Ezzo's in 1992 in Richmond VA. We did not have children yet which made it an even greater blessing. We have noticed over the years that almost everybody gets defensive if child-rearing ideas are promoted that are different from what they have already done. Since we had not already done anything, it was easier to objectively listen. We now have three children - 10, 7, and 5 - who all are very well behaved. It has always puzzled me to hear the Ezzo's critics accuse them of promoting rigid scheduling and a "my way is the only way" attitude. My recollection is that the Ezzo's said their ideas were not scripture but rather a smorgasbord of practical ideas where you could take what you want and leave what you don't want. I also remember them teaching the concept that principles don't change. Applying the principle to the situation you get a rule or a practice. So if the situation changes the rule may change - but not the principle. And parenting within the funnel - what a great concept! I have nothing but praise and admiration for the Ezzo's teachings and I have seen them work personally with my kids and others. Anyone who does anything significant - good or bad - is going to have critics. Again, you have a great site. The Ezzo's ministry is credible and effective. It is too bad that ego's get in the way even within the family of God but I guess we're all human. Posted on May 26th, 2006

GFI changed my life! It taught me to be a better Christian. It taught me the reasons why I believe what I believe. It gave me a foundation for my philosophy of life. And this is all before I even had children! Posted on May 23rd, 2006

Dear Gary and Anne Marie, We have using your Growing Families resources for the past 8 years. This has impacted our family in an amazing way. My husband and I began parenting believing demand feeding and child centred parenting methods were great Unfortunately this was a disaster and we were desperate for help. Fortunately a friend gave us a Prep. for Parenting manual and we were able to change our ways. Over the years we have run at least one course for our church and community every year. We have had many non-christian parents gain help and understanding of God's Word as well as many christian families strengthened and guided in Biblical parenting philosophy and practice. Recently a non-christian Dad gave his heart to the Lord after attending GKGW 18-week course. There are 3 couples helping us with the running of the parenting courses so we have between 1 and 4 courses available for parents in our area each year. We cannot thank you both enough. I guess the full reward will only be known in eternity but there are at least a hundred families in Auckland, New Zealand that have been touched and transformed by your wisdom and insight into God's Word and we send our love to you as well as prayer for your continued wellbeing and BLESSING!

I am so thankful for this website detailing the truth of the Ezzo's teaching and the false claims of their critics. We have used and are using the Ezzo's books and teaching in raising our own children (just now almost two and almost four). We would be lost without them! My husband often tells new parents: "They tell you that babies don't come with a manual, but they do! We found it!"

After reading your comments about Dobson and reading through the letters to Focus on the Family, I went to his website to see if they'd removed their statements, and thankfully, it seems they have. However, while there, I ran across this book title -- not written by Dobson, but recommended on his site: Motivating Your Man God's Way Discovering One Word That Energizes Your Husband to Love by Dr. Emerson & Sarah Eggerichs

Apparently it's okay for them to claim the "exclusivity" of God's way....

Okay, I'm not going to keep the fight going. It's just another inconsistency that got my blood "simmering" again... but I'm now letting go.

Anyway, thank you, again, to the Ezzos and GFI leaders, for standing strong behind your convictions and handling conflict with integrity. I applaud you but more than that, I give glory to God for you and His work in and through you all. Posted on May 21st, 2006

As one who greatly benefited from the Babywise Books a friend lent me when I had my first son, I would like to say Thank you. Although I never realized you had so many critics I would hear a critical statement hear and there about your teachings but thank God for His discernement I was able to see right through the criticism and am grateful for the positive results I have seen in my son. People will tell me all the time what a wonderful child I have. I just smile and thank them. Posted on May 20th, 2006

Its great that you now have a website. I didn't realise that you were having so much trouble with critics as all our bible study use your parenting methods and as a result they have well-behaved, intelligent, courteous, polite children who are a joy to be around. What better advertisement? We find your parenting methods INVALUABLE. Posted on Thursday, April 8th, 2006

Thank you Ezzo's!! We have 5 children (ages from 2-9), all who were sleeping through the night by 6-8 weeks. This includes our first children who were twins! We have facilitated Growing Kids God's Way classes for 10 year. We have come along side many couples, one-on-one, in doing the Preparation For Parenting series and the Toddler series. Our children's behavior is always noticed by people. We have even applied many principles in sunday school and other classroom settings. It's just plain "common sense". Unfortuantely, years ago, we chose to leave a church that once allowed our parenting classes but got hold of misinformation and then told us we could not do our classes anymore. Mr. Ezzo was more than willing to speak with the church elders yet none of them ever called him! We have been blessed by the Ezzo's parenting series and know our future generations will too. We are blessed to have this site now to give others if there is doubt. Revealing the misinformation will prayfully now put this misinformation to rest!

I cannot begin to tell you how many times I have been in a public place and someone has come up to me and said, "your children are so well behaved, how do you get them to be that way?" The reason is that we took a Growing Kids God's way class twelve years ago when our eldest child was two. The class was a God send. Joshua was wild, completely out of control, and we had no idea how to handle him. Then we met a couple who began telling us about the class and when we saw their children we immediately said, "we want that". The class transformed our family. Suddenly, we had structure and guidelines and weren't just "winging it" as most parents do. Our children learned to obey, not just because they had to, for fear of punishment, but because we were winning their hearts. Today we have a wonderful, loving family and people are always saying that we have amazing kids. We tell them we don't. Our kids are normal kids who have simply been taught to honor and obey their parents, and the bottom line is that God has done the work in our family and the tool that He used was "Growing Kids God's way". We have our critics. There are people who say we are too rigid and we should let kids be kids and that we are depriving them of an enjoyable childhood. But we have very happy kids. A while back my husband saw a light on late one night in his study and went to see who was up. It was our oldest son Joshua. When my husband entered the room Joshua was sitting at the desk with his Bible open and he was crying. My husband immediately came to him and asked what was wrong. Joshua smiled and said, "I'm just so happy". We have happy kids - happy, obedient, godly kids. They are far from perfect (but then, so are we), but they are a joy and a delight to everyone who knows them. Despite the criticism, despite the conflict, I will gladly recommend this curriculum. It changed our lives.

Having established the GFI ministry in Australia, which has involved approx. 35,000 households doing at least one program in the last 10 years (let alone the thousands of On Becoming Series paperbacks we have distributed), and having endured the critics, we, on behalf of thousands of Australian families who have experienced abundant blessing in their lives through the GFI ministry, we want to say a heartfelt thank you to Tom and Evangeline for their diligent, genuine research and courage to present Ezzotruth.

Patty gave birth to QUINTUPLETS on 1/23/96. Thanks to "Prep for Parenting," ALL 5 were sleeping through the night in under 8 weeks (after coming home from the hospital). "Prep for Toddlers" and "Growing Kids Gods Way" has been instrumental in raising our children. Thank you GFI!

Well worth the wait! WOW, you guys have done/are doing an excellent job in support of this great ministry. I am employed part-time with Growing Families Australia in doing, among other things, their GFA website at and I am so pleased to be able to include a link to the EZZOTRUTH.COM site for our viewers. What came through to me most from your site was the graciousness of the Ezzos in the way they have dealt with various issues that must have been very difficult to go through. I doubt if I would have been so concerned for the welfare of my accusers. I think people need to cut Gary and Anne Marie a bit of slack and give them some encouragement in what they do, rather than picking out the missed dots on i's and crosses on t's. Well done and God bless.

We are so thankful for this much needed site. You have done a wonderful job in providing a truthful resource for all those who have been troubled by rumor, gossip, and slander. Many blessings on your work.

We first learned about GKGW in 1991, after our children were in high school and college. We were so impressed be began teaching it in Sunday School and a year later began teaching it in our home. We have had over 120 couples in our classes, including five pastors. We have seen many of these families greatly blessed as they apply the Biblical principles contained in the GKGW curriculum. We are committed to the ministry because it presents God's truth for families but the things that keep us energized and going forward are some of the remarkable restorations that have occurred in disfuntional and chaotic families. We are so thankful that God has granted Gary and Anne Marie the grace to continue in the face of so much criticism and falsehood.

As the mother of three, now ages 6,8, and 10, I needed all the help I could use when my first child was born. A friend shared her Ezzo book on infant care (Babywise) and it just made sense. I was the first one in my husband's family to nurse, so I received quite a bit of unsolicitated advice. However, as my daughter regained her birthweight plus a few ounces by one week and continued to grow, gain weight, and truly become a beautiful bouncing baby girl, the relatives concerns were replaced with amazement as I was able to tell what my daughter needed depending on what time it was, and how long it had been since she last ate. Naps, fussy, bored, diaper changes were now not a guessing game and the only thing that changed was when a growth spurt had hit. Then I nursed more often but still scheduled to accomodate the needs of my daughter. I nursed her that way for 11 months, til she lost interest. My next child was also an Ezzo baby and she too amazed the pediatrician by growing extremely well and remained on the 90% of height and weight until she leveled off at @ 1 year. She too nursed a little over a year. The third child was another Ezzo success. He was an eating machine, so the parent controlled feeding plan had the same time spans as his sisters' did, but I had to accomodate him as he grew by leaps and bounds. The Ezzo menthod of feeding worked for our family and allowed us the joy of having "stairsteps" without unneccessary issues. I would and have recommended it to those that are interested. People need to realize that any philosophy out there on child rearing is just that: a philosophy. We picked what fit for us.

A Curious Visitor - My La Leche League Meeting
I find it interesting that you do not include a section responding to the American Academy of Pediatrics on your site. Certainly the opinions of thousands of doctors nationwide is something that should be addressed, especially if charges of failure to thrive, dehydration, developmental delay, and death as a result of using these methods seems to plague Mr. Ezzo.

I noticed you plan on censoring Mr. Ezzo's critics on this site. If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Site Administrators:
This visitor has been misinformed. The AAP has never issued any warnings against the Ezzos or their teaching. This issue is thoroughly addressed on the Dr. Matthew Aney page. This is not a matter of opinion, this is easily documented. For more on the other charges mentioned above, see our Infant FAQ page.

Having spent the last five years reading through the critics sites, this post sadly is representative of many of the more vocal critics (though not ALL the critics) in tone and in lack of intellectual integrity.

Certainly everyone has a right to disagree with the Ezzos and we would not want to discourage dialogue and criticism which might be helpful and constructive. However, when they do speak, they should do so with integrity--not repeating information of which they have no personal knowledge, or pulling quotes out of context and twisting facts in order to "prove" their point.

Steve Wilson WXYZ TV
And here's the comment:
Your site posts a letter which includes information from someone who claims to have first-hand knowledge of my efforts to report about Mr. Ezzo and his teachings.

Without getting into a long debate, I am hopeful that your respect for the truth will allow your readers to see that I vehemently deny the accuracy of the post that claims Ezzo and I spoke for hours.

The fact is that once he realized I was a reporter, I was ejected from the Detroit conference.

I note the letter writer who makes false claims to the contrary is not identified. I always disclose my identity when reporting facts as I know them. After all, why would anyone need to hide when telling the truth?

My viewers and readers of your website can only know the truth when all sides of an issue are given light. In that spirit, I hope you will not censor this remark and allow folks to think for themselves.

Administrator’s Note:

Mr. Wilson seems to have his own distorted reality of the truth. I personally observed Mr. Wilson at the Detroit conference. The Ezzos and other key GFI personnel spent several hours with Mr. Wilson. There are four other eyewitnesses that I have spoken with about this event. We all can vouch for the statements made by the St. Clairs in their letter (link coming) to which he is referring. My wife and I recently attended the 2006 GFI National Conference in Dallas. I brought Mr. Wilson’s e-mail with me to show four others who interacted with Mr. Wilson at the conference. On one hand, they were shocked that Mr. Wilson could make such a statement, knowing the hours that were invested in talking to him. On the other hand, they were not surprised, knowing the arrogant and mean-spirited distortions of the truth that have characterized Mr. Wilson’s reporting about the Ezzos’ ministry in the past. Consider these FACTS and make your own decisions about the veracity of Mr. Wilson’s statements.

1. Mr. Wilson's representative contacted GFI to do a story on the ministry but grossly misrepresented Mr. Wilson's intentions to GFI about the story line. He actually did a story on infant feeding to try and discredit the Ezzos.
2. According to the Ezzos, a "very reliable source" blew the whistle on him and warned GFI about Mr. Wilson’s deception.
3. After this deception was made known to the Ezzos, Mr. Wilson’s interview was cancelled by GFI. He showed up anyway unannounced, uninvited, cameras rolling, and trespassing at a private church conference for registrants only.
4. Initially, he was graciously asked to leave by GFI representatives as well as local police authorities and he refused, creating a very intense and confrontational setting. He was finally forced to leave the premises by local authorities.
5. Mr. Wilson was later invited by the Ezzos to come back on the last day of the conference for an interview – something Wilson conveniently failed to mention. Mr. Wilson stayed for several hours speaking with the Ezzos and other GFI representatives.
6. A representative from the television station also registered for the conference to secretly videotape portions of the conference. She sat in on a few workshops before being caught. She had a hidden camera in her purse. So much for truth and disclosure in reporting! She was confronted with her deception, given her registration money back and asked to leave.
7. Mr. Wilson was given an opportunity by Ezzotruth to support his claim by answering a series of approximately twenty questions about his experience at the conference and his subsequent report on the local WXYZ station. He refused to answer any of the questions that would support his claim. As Mr. Wilson states himself: "After all, why would someone want to hide from the truth?" Why would Mr. Wilson not answer our questions if what he said was the truth? See the e-mail exchanges here (link coming soon).

We are GFI class leaders and we are currently hosting our first GKGW class and have hosted numerous Infant and Toddler classes.

We came in contact with the GFI material before ever meeting the Ezzos but have come to equally love them as much as their teaching.

We have longed for the day when the truth would be distributed about the Ezzos. Thank you so much for publishing this site.
