Women, come join us... 


September 30 - Oct 2, 2022


*Plan to attend our next event!
(Women are asking when it is so they can book vacation time!)

See our photos and updates here in our FB Group...

What God did, blew us all away...

Learn more about what we had anticipated...
...from the pictures God had given us
when we first gathered to pray as leaders in May 2022...

Are you thirsty for more
of God's promised freedom and peace,
amidst what is happening in the world
around you?

Are you done with the confusion, striving, exhaustion
emotional upset of the past season?
When you join us this Fall, you will not be forced to come explore the Canadian WestCoast forest with me but the invitation could be open at some point! ;) 

Are you thirsty for a living, tangible and deeper connection
with the Lord's heart for you?

Are you a woman who is thirsty for more
of what God has for you?

...and to move out of the box
which you have found yourself stuck in?

If so, this event is for you...

We have women coming from all over and
YOU are invited to join us this Fall too!
Absolutely, you'll not want to miss
this rich time together 
with other like-hearted women

(sisters you just haven't met yet),

gathering in freedom,
celebration, community,
and communion with Jesus!

We've got real smiles and hugs ready for you
as we will BE WITH YOU this September IN PERSON.

What the Lord has been showing us
as we walked and prayed through the location...

Let's just say, it has us fired up!

Here's the story...
Cool thing?

One of our friends,
took our photo and added the flames.

Oh my...
Just you wait...

Ladies, the Lord is igniting thirsty women around the globe in encountering His freedom in this season.

We'd be honoured to gather WITH YOU this September...

You will be guided to encounter His deeper freedom and you will be ignited by the women encouraging you in your journey.

You will step forward with a tribe of women who are IRON SHARPENING IRON...


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.”


Your own life-giving experience is waiting for you too...

We'd love to gather with you
for a rich time of interactive reflecting,
empowering and equipping,
spiritual direction
and coaching with Jesus leading the way!


Join us for this much anticipated
3-DAY IN PERSON event!

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!

*Permission to play and delight in his presence.

It will be both relaxing and casual,
igniting and encouraging
for your journey.

Ladies, please join us:

Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2022
Friday night to Sunday morning


Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada

*Abbotsford, which is just minutes north of the Canada/US border, is a hidden treasure of Holy Spirit movement that has been stirring up for over 2 decades even in the midst of a religious Bible Belt, a multi-cultural boiling pot, and our current world drama.

Women in Abbotsford and surrounding areas, have been crying out,
 hungry for 
more of the true Lord Jesus!

The story continues...

Where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is Freedom 

Incredible things happen
when we women gather in person!

Who are your hosts and coaches

for this life-giving event for women?

Merri Ellen Giesbrecht
Life Coach & Spiritual Director

Merri Ellen is a Certified 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 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...
Alesha Bruneski
Prayer Coach & Spiritual Director

Alesha is deeply passionate about encountering Jesus and loves leading others to experience and hear Him speak for themselves. 

In her journey of learning to walk more intimately with the Lord and hearing Him, her life has been completely transformed. She has been profoundly impacted by how her own children encounter God through simple activations and seeing the amazing transformation that has taken place in them!

Deanne Pohl
Prayer Coach & Spiritual Director

Deanne is gifted and passionate about leaning into Jesus and learning what His voice sounds like. She enjoys guiding women, teens, and children to encounter Jesus! She brings everything back to Jesus, asking Him what is on His heart for you. She is a diligent student of God’s Word and prioritizes time spent in prayer at His feet and listening to His voice. 

Come join us and be ignited
in a new season with more of God's freedom for you...


Stay tuned for our next event!

*Add yourself to the list

Come, join us and encounter more of God's healing,
peace and freedom together!
