*Merri Ellen's heart is to lead women to encounter God, and to equip and multiply, and you can see that in this feedback below...
"We invited Merri Ellen to do a retreat for us at Windword Ministries because we had never had a retreat at our church for women. In fact some of them had never been to a retreat and thought that it might be a conference. They were very nicely surprised and now know the difference between the two.
(Photo above is of a portion of the group who enjoyed a free time hike!)
The retreat brought women together that don’t go to regular women’s meetings and it built long lasting bonds and stronger friendships.
One special thing, among so many, that Merri Ellen carries is the ability to help women experience God personally. They encountered Him in ways that they never had before. When you experience God in ways like that you get to know God on a level above knowing about God and knowing who He is personally to you. We experienced that in powerful ways.
Our experience was so wonderful that our women’s leader is setting up a day to recreate that for women this next Saturday. You know it’s a good thing when people say, “Do it again God.” And that the how-to was simple enough you can experience again whenever you want.
Thank You Merri Ellen.
Merri Ellen is a wonderfully anointed woman and is full of fun and humility, to mention only a sliver of her qualities. She has the ability to work with people who are in a traditional church and the very charismatic without anyone feeling uncomfortable with her methods. She can read a room and knows how to proceed from there. This all comes from her intimate relationship with the Lord.
Her testimony alone gives her insight into being a good leader or being a good follower. I have seen her in both scenarios and she is a star. You can’t be a good leader if you aren’t a good follower.
She mixes well with the women and made a special effort to memorize everyone’s name. People’s names are very personal to them: that is why you don’t want to get it wrong but if you remember their name it makes you feel very special. That is how God sees us, special, He wants us to know we are special.
Merri Ellen’s warm heart, laughter and constant smile makes you feel comfortable and that you belong. We all need that.
If you have her work with your women you won’t be sorry, in fact your women will come back from their experience with a knowing of who they are in Christ."
