    "We just listened to your new CD, and it is so wonderful! I love the arrangements, and I can really worship as I listen. What a blessing!!! I have fallen in love with the "Revelation Song" arrangement. I have never heard it done like that before, with "Holy, Holy, Holy" interwoven, and with the chords you used. Ingenious! Absolutely beautiful and most worshipful. I totally love it!"
    Jan, Glencoe, MN

    "I've already worn Sanctuary out, and I've had so much fun passing out this new CD! It's so awesome to be able to share the music! Thank you, thank you for your ministry!"
    Care, Wasilla, AK

    "Sanctuary is one of my favorites from now on! It has all of my favorite uplifting songs. I can listen and be encouraged in my daily journey."
    Susi, Omaha, NE

    "There is nothing better than waking up every day to the sound of Mary Beth Carlson's piano orchestrations, a cup of coffee, and devotions."
    Brian and Christine, Hector, MN

    "You will be spellbound. I have Sanctuary on repeat and it plays continuously."
    Starr, Eagan, MN

    "I discovered the music of Mary Beth Carlson around 2000. I have since purchased every one of her CDs. Her music transports me to a different place. A place of peace, healing and "Sanctuary." I encourage you to let her take you to your "Sanctuary", a place where you can worship God alone. Where you will behold Him in all His glory. A place where you'll discover that Christ alone is all you need. A sanctuary where you'll discover just how great our God is and a Savior that abides with us. Sanctuary will take you to that peaceful place of worship where the rest of the world fades away and it's just you and our precious Lord."
    Sharon, Roswell, NM
