Over the years, hopes and dreams that covered travel, ministry, family etc. had been pushed into the background. At this workshop the lid was taken off! I felt a wonderful freedom and permission to embrace these hopes and dreams with a resounding Yes! from Heaven


God filled my heart in this course and I just didn't want to leave! Thank you so much.


What an amazing lady and teacher you are. I praise God that I decided to come to this, I feel released to dream like never before and step out in faith in God again. Thank you for being God’s instrument to stir me up again – thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I feel empowered and released!

My husband and I just wanted to say thank you so much for this course. I feel so encouraged and inspired in a way I never have before. I know now that I am meant to grow and flourish, and I am so excited about the opportunities ahead of me. The prophetic words I received spoke very deeply to me about the dreams I have had for almost my whole life, but had almost given up on. Thank you so much for what you are doing, it’s so powerful.
