“My mom had passed away 6 months ago and I struggled with grieving her loss. It affected my children’s sleep and my emotions and how I handled life. In my sessions with Merri Ellen, I realized that Jesus is closer to me and my situation. That him taking care of me covers my past, my present, and my future, and that healing can be real! Praying together opened my eyes to why I was hurting so badly and Jesus took that lie away and spoke truth into it. My mom is not gone, she is with him.
One of the most helpful parts of our sessions is praying together but also the practical advice on how to deal with strong emotions.
I knew that working with Merri Ellen was the right thing for me to do after my friend had mentioned it to me. Jesus wants to tell you how to find your way back and Merri Ellen has a good way to get Jesus and you together in a room. Before meeting with Merri Ellen, I was tired and very sad and angry. Since our sessions, I am happy. I found rest without sleep. I think it was new for me to pray for my family this way.
I was surprised how Merri Ellen knew what to ask me especially when we talked about my mom’s passing. The whole concept of lies and truth was most helpful.
It’s normal to get stuck, but it’s good to get unstuck together. I find the steps and her approach help me beyond the reasons why I come. I use it during the day when I feel stuck by myself. It has changed the way how I live my faith.”
