Dear, mom, grandma, kids ministry leader,
and all caregivers of kids!

Are you concerned for your kids today?

Our world is FULL of negative voices:

...despair and depression,
panic and fear,
judgement and intimidation,
perversion and lust... 

THIS is the time
for you and your kids
to HEAR GOD's voice instead!

Come, join us along with other women
who have hearts for their kids to encounter more
of the wisdom, power, love and healing of Jesus!

In just 3 days, we will take you alongside other women...

This will change the way you and your kids
SEE LIFE in this season.

(Just read the stories below on this page...)

Invite a friend
and enjoy the fun journey together!

Together, we will learn how to invite Jesus to speak 
in your life and lives of kids' - could be fears, heart wounds, burdens, and even dreams and heart desires!

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

Do you long for... 
  • Jesus to bring healing to young hearts,
  • his joy to push back darkness, 
  • God to provide clarity amidst confusion,
  • his hands to provide healing?

Are you a woman who…
  • loves Jesus but longs to hear him more clearly, and help kids experience the same?
  • gets refreshed and energized
    by being with other like-minded women?

If you said “yes” to any of these, this Adventure is for you!

Here’s what others are saying about our previous events...

Be inspired for your own journey!

“Merri Ellen, this was just fantastic, so life giving! Thank you so much for letting me take part in this wonderful adventure! I am just so grateful for all of these women, their stories and their shares! Thank you, thank you!!!! Amazeballs!!!!”

Gail Derksen

“It was fabulous! This will change my walk with Jesus to a deeper way in hearing and seeing Him. I will use this for rest of my life. I can't thank you enough for this experience it was so super awesome!!

Camilla Higginbottom

"God has clearly anointed you to speak truth over so many and I'm very very grateful that you are walking in obedience to His calling.  I appreciate you and thank God for you and for this time together!

I will always look back on these days as being transformational for me.   Awesome teaching from Merri Ellen that was clearly Holy Spirit led and time with other women who are hungry to hear from God filled my soul.  I love how Merri Ellen led us to ask questions directly to Holy Spirit and then to stop and listen for Him to answer.  Transformational!”


Val Thiessen

“I chose this event because I searched Merri Ellen out.  I felt that there was something about Merri Ellen that spoke to me.  I find Merri Ellen very approachable and helpful in the advice she gives. Encouraging!

From this event, I want to remember that Jesus/God/Holy Spirit are always near us.  I can get feeling like they are very distant and bury myself in my troubles.  I want to internalize that even if I don't feel Him there I can KNOW that He IS there and over time I hope to feel Him and hear Him.”

Karen Guenther

"Thanks so much for taking us through this. I am excited to go deeper and experience more and hopefully bring a lot of people along with me on the journey. The event was Abundant.

I learned… to ask God more questions, about our spiritual authority in Jesus name, to give him all our burdens (do a gift exchange) and do it often. Probably everyday. It's amazing the things we take on from just one day. Good to prayerfully reflect.

Just being in His presence.
How you can tangibly feel Him.

I am ready to be mind blown."


Kyriel Funk

“This event was more than expected. May the Lord multiply the fruit from this ministry and may we grow up in Jesus.  

I was Awakened!”
Lori Kraul

"Jesus has chosen me, I can lean in and listen, and I have the tools to fight the enemy. AND, I am invited to pray in the same way for others I love. This has refreshed me to step back in to the practices that I need to be upheld. I feel this call to press into prayer on behalf of others also. I can lean in and listen to Jesus and join in battle on behalf of others! Thank you!! ;) Refreshing!"


Kathleen Doll

“The power in letting Jesus direct the prayer!

What hope and joy there is in community prayer and learning. It’ll continue to build into my life.

It has changed the way I pray... I will… share it, share it, share it!

The gift exchange with Jesus is always powerful. Refreshing.”

Raquel Foth

“Next time I would subscribe to the zoom-event right from the start.

This event was joyful :)”

Helene Mayer

"I will enjoy  JESUS a whole lot more :-) Very well organized, thorough and great response in the leadership. THANK YOU.  You passion is contagious. Exciting!"


Sandy Phillipps

"I know Papa carried me here. Thankful. This was obviously a labor of love. Thank you Merri Ellen and team for the Grace and connection both in technology and Spirit. It felt like Kingdom in the Marketplace rather than a hired transactional event. Blessings on you all. Joyous!"

Sue Carpenter 

“I loved the FELLOWSHIP FELLOWSHIP FELLOWSHIP!! With Holy Spirit and His children! All the other keys fit under this umbrella! I am being spurred on to stay in much more constant communication & relationship with God... Nothing but praise for this Glorious Gathering!! Besides actually sitting in the room with Merri Ellen & all these ladies....nope, nothing was missed!! It was ENCOURAGING (in a boosting way!!;)"

Constance Galubenski

"I learned God wants to speak daily.  He wants us to come to Him.  It is a relationship... we can talk with Him, ask questions (yes we can do that!) and he will speak to us.

James 4:8 has come to me a lot lately.. draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.. it's a two way street.  I learned... when God heals our hearts, we experience His presence and we are more relational with our loved ones.. our relationships will only get better.

Thank you so much for putting this event together.  Incredible!!

Private Session Reviews:

"I have received freedom, peace, hope, life and comfort. I look forward to every session and I’m always amazed at how only one session can result in such amazing breakthrough. 

Merri Ellen knows Jesus, you can trust her. She helps facilitate a Journey of discovery, healing and reestablishing you in Christ through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I’ve had so much fun too. 

I love that in our sessions all the honour goes to the Lord!" 

-Nicole Giffen

- Gail Derksen

Women Hearing God's Voice
Encounter Jesus Together

Meet your host and coach…


I'm a Certified Christian Life Coach and Spiritual Director, and I've helped women and children around the world in multiple countries encounter Jesus and receive the healing that only He can bring. 
Since 2003, I have coached over 2 million people (yes, I said 2 million) in over 120 countries through what I have learned in encountering His joy and peace.

(I 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!)

I have 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 my own personal journey from once serving as a Children's Pastor, Kids Ministry Outreach Coordinator and later ministry burnout, I discovered the transforming power of encountering more of Jesus with Christ-centered heart healing, and less striving from religious bondage, and as a result became passionate about others experiencing that same freedom and healing!

Today, I coach ministry leaders, business professionals, homeschooling moms, and more! Families everywhere are not yet walking in the fullness of who God created them to be. 

I am dedicated to empowering 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!

Here’s what other women are saying...
“Having Merri Ellen guide me through some exercises has been a gift. Before meeting with Merri Ellen, I found I was so stuck in my own head with my own thoughts that I was unable to discern between God’s truth and Satan’s lies.

I really appreciated having the prayer and guidance with Merri Ellen’s direction and help me to sift through my thoughts and discern what is from God and what isn’t.

I have been to many counsellors and Merri Ellen brings a uniqueness I haven’t had. Allowing God into every session makes all the difference.

Today, I feel more spiritually alive. I look forward to coming each time to meet with Merri Ellen.”

- Nicole Gelderman
"I contacted Merri Ellen when I was in a season of transition and change and needed to gain some insights as to where God was leading me and what direction He was going. I needed confidence and to overcome some fears. 

What I enjoy most about my sessions with Merri Ellen is how she asks the right questions and allows me to hear the answers from the Holy Spirit for myself.  So, it doesn’t build a dependency on someone to hear God for you, but builds your own confidence in being able to hear and see what God is saying and doing for myself.  Very important.  I have received direction from the Lord and insights into my own journey. 

A trusted friend referred me to her and I’m very glad for that! 

I immediately recommended her to my sister who has also had sessions with Merri Ellen. I told my sister this helped to encounter God in a fresh and effortless way.  

Before I met with Merri Ellen, I felt stuck, blocked, fearful, uncertain.  Since our sessions together, I have new tools to move forward and people in my circle who I can turn to when I do get stuck.

What surprised me and made me the happiest about our sessions together?

Merri Ellen didn’t give me answers, she helped me to find my own answers.  She asked me the right questions. She opened the heavens, or provided a very clean spiritual atmosphere where it was easy to move and hear in the Holy Spirit.  No spiritual interference of blockages.  

Her ministry is a fountain of strength to others and I am blessed to drink from it. My heart is very grateful!
