“The Encounter art class helped me to connect with the Lord in a deeper way than before, and gave me the tools to continue to connect with Jesus on my own. The art pieces helped with the process by allowing me to express what I was hearing or feeling from Jesus, and it was very calming. I think this class can be very helpful to those who are wanting to get closer to God, and who want to hear from him. Carolyn offers really good guidance questions to help guide the class, and her prompts are really helpful when speaking with the Lord. She asked questions that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own, that brought forward a lot of good things. Jesus was able to show me a lot of things that I was holding on to that he wanted me to let go of, and I met the holy spirit for the first time and got to experience her wrapping me in her love and comfort. This class is definitely worth taking. Carolyn is very good at guiding the time, and the experience with Jesus is really powerful. Each week after the class I left with a sense of peace, and it really helped me grow in my relationship with Jesus.”
