“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!!!!”
“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!!
"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!”
"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."
“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!”
"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!"
“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.”
“Next time I would subscribe to the zoom-event right from the start.
This event was joyful :)”
"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!"
"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!"
“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!!;)"
"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!!
