What does Holy Scripture Say about Healing?


There are many passages in the Bible that talk about physical and spiritual healing.  The Lord would love nothing better than for us to find our wholeness, our healing in him and in his love.  In this part of my blog, I will write about those Scriptures and how we can live into our Ultimate Creative Potential in Christ.

Life Coaching and Online Courses

Beyond the Blog: Life Coaching and Online Courses provide the context for healing to occur.

Women can enter a severe faith crisis when their church leader abuses them emotionally and spiritually.  Such trauma builds dangerous levels of stress, destroys trust, and damages prayer life.  Without guidance, many will suffer because their wound robs them of joy in everything else they do.  

If this is true of you, you have come to the right place. 

Spirituality Classroom offers a safe place where you can relieve your stress, reignite your hope, reboot your prayer life, and renew your joy.  Spirituality Classroom provides online courses, spiritual tools, and supportive life coaching as you search for your path to healing and beyond.  

We believe that you can grow through healing into a beautiful wholeness in Christ.

Come along and catch the vision!
