A few years back I came into the office of Hope In Life shattered, angry & so full of doubt. I was facing so many personal insecurities, in an unstable marriage, going to school, working & trying to survive. To be honest, I wasn’t sure of what I wanted or should expect from my counseling sessions, but I’m glad that I pressed my way in. The counselors loved on me, rebuked the spirit of fear I walked in & guided me to God’s truths. The healing process was so intense, but just what I needed. I completed six months of intimate sessions & felt so much more hopeful about my life. Joy kicked in so much that some time later my husband & I started sessions as a couple. Some with just him, some just me & some together. I watched that man transform!It’s been a beautiful sight to watch us both give one another grace, grow & overcome with the tools given through prayer counseling. We celebrated 11 years of marriage this past September & all glory belongs to God. I’d like to give credit to His vessels at Hope In Life Ministries as well. - Wilisha
I knew something was wrong in my life. To me, everyone else seemed to know the secrets of life - how to survive and be happy, and how to avoid the bad stuff and unkind people. Although, I had reached world indicators of success in owning a home, working at a decent job, and completion of a college degree, I was falling apart inside. It seemed like pieces of me were getting away.
I completed many ...counselling sessions over the years, but I was still sad and I was getting worse. By the time I found Hope In Life Ministry, I had a messy, festering boatload of emotional baggage and destructive beliefs pulling on me.
Biblical prayer counseling was new to me. My journey with Hope In Life Ministry was not an instant or easy healing process, but it has been revealing. Sometimes growth has been gradual, sometimes almost instant. It has been a muriad of emotions, sometimes annoyingly painful, but far more uplifting and inspiring.
For the first time in my life, the sources of my pain and unsuccessful coping skills were addressed. I wrestled with unforgiveness, but I realized healing, and learned boundaries. I experienced feelings that I did not know were part of me. I felt hope.
I am so grateful to Natalie Meyer and Hope In Life Ministry because she helped me to feel joy and a connection with Jesus to achieve the healing I needed. ~ Patricia
I have been a Christian and in church leadership for over thirty years of ministry as a lay leader and a pastor. I love ministering to God's people and reaching the lost for Christ. It is my belief that Christians are to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ because we have the ministry of reconciliation, and to all on the outside, I was doing a wonderful job. However, at home, it was a different story.
My wife and I have been married for almost forty years, but our relationship as husband and wife for the past nine years was dying. We hardly talked and when we did everything was lost in translation. I would yell and she would blame, so I would go into another room. She stopped talking and our intimate relationship was nonexistent. We became nothing more than roommates. Sunday mornings we would put on our Christian face and give our Christian greetings, but my marriage was in desperate need of help. Fortunately, through God's grace we found help through Hope In Life Ministry.
My wife decided to seek help for our struggling marriage and was referred to one of the Biblical Prayer Counselors, Brenda Zamorano at Hope In Life Ministry. After my wife had a few prayer sessions with Brenda, she invited me to join one of the sessions. At that session, Brenda spoke to the core of our condition and helped us to see how we were relating to one another out of fear. I then decided to start my own biblical counseling session with Brenda. Through our counseling sessions, she helped me realize how fear was controlling me and how I used fear to control those close to me. We decided to put in the work to see our marriage become what God intended it to be. I can truly say that our marriage is much better.
May God richly bless Brenda and Hope In Life Ministry for many changed lives and many years to come. ~ Pastor John
I am grateful for Hope In Life Ministry and how my Prayer Counselor, Sandra Roberts spoke about who the Holy Spirit is in my life. I know that all the women she ministers to and how she allows the Holy Spirit to minister to them through her is a complete blessing. I am so thankful for that! As a result of our counseling and her helping me know who God is, He has changed my life and He is changing my husband’s life as well. Hope In Life Ministry is a blessing! ~ Cheryl
My wife and I were having serious marriage issues. After counseling with Sandra Roberts and through the power of the Holy Spirit, after 4 years of marriage, our relationship has never been better. Sandra was a God-send to my wife and I during a time when we desperately needed help. Thank you Hope In Life Ministry. ~ Dave
Last year one of our pastors recommended Hope In Life Ministry Biblical Prayer Counseling to our family. Our teen daughter struggled with anxiety, which led to poor performance in school and anger issues. From the moment my daughter and I sat down with Brenda Zamorano, we knew we were going to experience God’s healing in a very real and powerful way. Brenda invited me to sit in with my daughter for the first few sessions to understand the process and to help communicate the family dynamics. During those sessions, the Holy Spirit began to reveal to me that I had deep fears within my own heart that were affecting my relationship with God and my family. We agreed that I, too, would begin the counseling process.
Over the next several months, my daughter and I continued to see Brenda together and separately. Each session was profoundly challenging and encouraging as Brenda, guided by the Holy Spirit, asked questions that revealed deep strongholds based on years of false beliefs and lies. Brenda spoke God’s grace and truth into my heart and soul, and I began to truly heal.
Jesus has done remarkable things in our family through Hope In Life Ministry Biblical Prayer Counseling. Today, I’m free from so many of the lies I once believed, and my relationship with my daughter has improved greatly. We know that we are for each other and that God is for us. We don’t have to be a victim to conflict and struggle. We have learned how to surrender to the Holy Spirit and to walk in truth. Our fears have been replaced by a deeper level of faith, which has created more peace in our home. Our daughter has noticeably improved in her schoolwork and is gaining confidence in who she is in Christ.
I believe God will continue to produce fruit in our family that is a result from what we learned at Hope In Life Ministry. We highly recommend this ministry and know that whoever goes through this process will experience a transformed life. ~ Heidi
I'm going to keep this short. All I can say is the Biblical Prayer Counseling I have received through Sandra Roberts at Hope In Life Ministry has been LIFE CHANGING!! ~ Janie
