Teaching Seminars are ticketed events of two to three hours in length. These events can be scheduled at your church or other location for groups of ten or more.





Have you been hurt by others? Do painful experiences from your past have a hold on your life today? Do you suffer inside, still hurting over what happened to you months, years, or decades ago? Are you frustrated you can’t “get over it,” “move on,” and “leave your past behind?” RISE to FREEDOM  is the answer to finally dealing with your real and deepest hurt, and stepping toward your future with joy and peace. In this extended seminar, I walk you through a complete healing process. I guide you through:


*The jobs of the Holy Spirit

*Working with the Holy Spirit throughout your emotional healing

*Developing a new perspective of your past

*Identifying the four parts of you that need healing

*How the four parts of you interact, and how to compensate for a weak area

*What giving forgiveness really means and how to really do it (without lying)

*What to do while you’re working through healing

*What to do if the pain hangs on

*What to do if you get stuck on the path to healing

Don’t stay bound by past hurts, painful experiences, or trauma. RISE to FREEDOM and live a fulfilled, restored life.

"Shellie's teaching on conflict in marriage opened my eyes to my own motivations and frustrations with my marriage. During a recent argument with my wife, I recognized exactly what was happening and how I could use our disagreement to help our relationship rather than harm it." (J.C.)

"I didn't want to get a divorce, but I thought my marriage was over and I had no other choice. Shellie's insights about building intimacy in marriage helped me see where my beliefs and behaviors were hindering my relationship with my husband. I changed first, which wasn't easy. I truly believe if I hadn't changed, my husband wouldn't have either, and our marriage would not have survived." (J.W.)

"Shellie's teaching on intimacy barriers changed me and my marriage in ways I never dreamed. I realized I was blaming my husband for things I was doing. Shellie taught me to recognize bad habits, how to stop them, and replace them with behaviors that grow my marriage." (Anonymous)
