Is this you?
 
Do you have a heart to hear Jesus speak specifically into your relationships and circumstances? 

Do you long for... 

- Jesus' perfect love to drive out fear, 
- his joy to push back depression, 
- his revelation to provide clarity amidst confusion,
- his hands to provide healing?

Are you a woman who…

- loves Jesus but longs to hear him more clearly?
- gets refreshed and energized
by being with other like-minded women?

Do you want to gather with other women
to hear God's voice more clearly?


If you said “yes”?



This weekend is for you... 

to connect deeply with
the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
and with other sisters in Christ
who are thirsty for Him
on this journey!

Meet your hosts and coaches

for this life-giving event for women:

 
Merri Ellen Giesbrecht
Life Coach & Spiritual Director
Coming from Abbotsford, BC, Canada


Merri Ellen is a Christian Life Coach and Spiritual Director, who has helped people around the world in multiple countries encounter Jesus and receive the healing that only He can bring. 
 
Since 2003, she has coached over 2 million people (yes, 2 million) in over 120 countries through what she has learned in encountering His joy and peace.

(She started in the early days of the internet simply via email and later recorded video teaching. In recent years, it has been LIVE and INTERACTIVE via Zoom! This event will be IN PERSON!)

She has watched God's presence bring more breakthrough in one 50-minute session than years of attending church services or traditional counselling. These have their place but encountering Jesus personally is the gold! He is the Healer, Great Physician and Wonderful Counsellor.

Through her own personal healing journey from physical illness, ministry burnout and church pain, she discovered the transforming power of encountering more of Jesus with Christ-centered heart healing and as a result became passionate about others experiencing that same freedom and healing!

Today, she is the author of: "God, Show Me More Of You", and coaches ministry leaders, business professionals, homeschooling moms, and more!

She loves to empower Jesus followers to truly encounter Jesus all over the world so they can experience Jesus as He really is, and be transformed in the process.

Women everywhere are not yet walking in the fullness of who God created them to be. Connect with Jesus, receive healing from emotional pain/trauma and make space for God to uncover lies that keep you from living from a healed heart.

She will be joined by...

Be inspired by these testimonials
from women in our past events:




"Bless you, Merri Ellen... for being the willing vessel the Lord is looking for, to be His new wineskins, carefully holding His precious Spirit, and dispensing it to all who are around you. You are all amazing, and I am so blessed and privileged... I feel I have seen and learned so much. Thank you!"

...



"Hi Merri Ellen,

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful experience of this event. 


I wish to express my gratitude for your openness and for all the women who shared their stories. It is so powerful when a group of women can get together and be vulnerable and talk openly about their faith!


Again, Thanks be to God for your work with women and this Coaching Circle. We all need this!"


...



"God speaks to me!"
...



"Merri Ellen I cannot explain to you what's happening in my heart. God is good. Listening to the Holy Spirit is so much sweeter than all the other voices I've been hearing for years."

...




"I've told so many people about you and how much I enjoyed learning from you.  It's been amazing for me and I feel like I've really just begun on this journey!"

...



"Thank you so much for this. There is so much going on that I've been encouraged by. Jesus is so amazing and I love the time I am spending with him. It's opened up a whole new way of seeing things... Kingdom perspective!"

...



"Meeting you was so timely. I was a believer for 17 years and just realized how misinformed I was. I don't think I believed my Good, Good Father. If people knew the truth of the Word, they would be free indeed."

...



“Hi Merri Ellen. I just wanted to thank you so much for putting on this event. 


I grew up (in a traditional church) and felt like my faith was always being squelched. I was not supposed to get too excited. This weekend I learned that God IS bigger and wants to talk to me and I have found a new way to study scripture and its transformational. 


...My friend invited me to this event and I spent all weekend with God. It was so amazing!! I have been sleeping better and not waking up with this feeling of dread. I am learning that He wants to be my best friend and the bridegroom I never had. 


I love your passion and excitement and Jesus's love shines through you. Thank you again.”
