About This Group

In February 2023 I started 2 Encounter Elijah House groups to introduce people to the Elijah House teachings with the 5 Keynote lessons from A-School. Some of my group wanted to learn more but didn't want to do the schools so I obtained permission to work with them through these various Teaching Series workbooks with the videos I had obtained from Sandra after I had my prayer ministry with her in June 2020.


All of us are on a journey of becoming more like Christ; a journey of discovery - who we really are, what we've been called to. We're learning how to live out of the new heart Jesus gave us at conversion - how to believe, forgive, trust, love and live from a whole heart.

 

However, there can be a few bumps in the road. A few mountains, and more than a few valleys, disappointments and setbacks. Our hearts get bruised and broken and we're often tempted to self-protect along the way-or disconnect from our overwhelmed heart and go into the problem-solving areas of our brain to try to figure things out. We end up living our lives sometimes very efficiently and successfully, but often mechanically, with very little heart. Or, because of cultural or religious beliefs or lack of modelling growing up, we just don't know how or have never learned what it means to live from our heart.

 

We can end up isolated and alone afraid of vulnerability unable to step into our true identity and the destiny Jesus has for us - living a get-by life rather than the abundant life that Jesus died for.

 

These teaching series will help you gain a biblical understanding of what 'healing of the heart really looks like - why it's necessary - and how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit's work of sanctification and transformation, NOT an easy journey, but a necessary one.

 

We'll learn how to journey with the Holy Spirit, and how to journey with one another - how to walk each other home & how to love others back to life.


We start with worship, watch an Elijah House teaching & then have an opportunity for discussions, "hotseat" prayer as the Holy Spirit leads & fellowship.

I was born in Germany, raised in South Africa & currently reside in New Zealand, since July 2014. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Clive, since 31 October 1992. We have 2 boys, Jesse, aged 26 in June & Misha aged 21 in September. I rediscovered my creative abilities in September 2017 & tried my hand at painting in September 2019. I am a mixed-media artist who works in pencil and coloured pencils, watercolours, acrylics, pastels and digital scrap-booking. As a faith-filled, life-speaking, fully devoted follower of Christ, my desire is to touch people’s hearts with the love of God & bring healing to the nations through creativity. Strong, gentle, fierce and compassionate, I create whimsical pieces that spread the message that God loves you, is there for you, and you’re never alone.
