I did get a lot of helpful information to help share at a volunteer ministry which is exactly what I was looking for.

Participant

Jennifer is a great trainer.

Very knowledgeable, practical and covered a lot of material in the course that has been very useful for me as a coach.

The Jesus Meditations were the most helpful because I connected with other people and also because it was a do-able daily activity.

The workshop was incredibly helpful to me! It's amazing that even via Zoom a sense of fellowship and community was created. The workbook was very well done and Jennifer's class very good--fast-paced and just the right amount of info per session. I'm very thankful that I took the class. Perfect balance of spiritual support and medical info and research.

The social media posts have been very encouraging and helpful to me for years. Recently, I took the Abide Helper Training and was blessed by the content,

and motivated by the opportunity to get involved in coaching. I love helping people and look forward to being certified to coach in the Abide Network in the near future!

Albeit over zoom, it was good to have a group work through the program with. To know that I wasn't alone, to encourage one another, to keep each other accountable with our weekly tasks, and to share what was/wasn't working for us individually. By the end of the course I halved my depression score, and I'm pretty stoked about that.

treating it.

Food for the Heart & Depression workshop It has provided a useful connection point to lessen my feeling of disconnection and has been an excellent resource for right thinking from a biblical standpoint as I work thru some of my feelings of loss and loneliness after a divorce from my wife of almost 30 years.

The toolboxes are extremely helpful for us who are older ..allows us to become grounded in the midst of so many  references. They serve as a great launch point to steer us in the right direction.

(A&DR participant)

I am now recognizing when I am starting to go into an anxiety cycle and I am able to apply the practical info needed to change patterns. I am in fact healing and becoming less depressed over time. ...It has saved my marriage and my children a lot of challenges and it has made me happier and better able to cope with life. In fact, I go so far as to say it has saved my life. Because I now have a life worth living and I feel like I’m learning to be in control of my life instead of my anxiety being in control.

The "Food for the Heart" Friday evening  Bible studies is so in touch

with everyday life.

It's inspirational to see Biblical reference of

God 's Grace and Love

for us all. It is also good

to be able to reply the meeting on Facebook

and share with other family members...

the very first meeting was great and helped me to get close to God

and His Mercy.

Thank all of you.

I love Jesus Meditations because this ministry is so inspiring and calming.

This is a very valuable tool even when the other aspects are forgotten or out of reach.

This is an unexpected

bonus for taking the Anxiety and Depression workshop which l believe will help me to become centered during my future tests. The on-line workbook for the Anxiety and Depression workshop is exquisitely put together and promises to be so very helpful & accessible.
