Martina did a fantastic job facilitating the group through the chapters of Evil Lurking: From Electric Chair to Kingdom Grace. I was not sure of what to expect when I signed up but was pleasantly surprised with both the process and the outcome of the course. I was able to get in touch with my feelings deeper once I felt comfortable and trust was established. I could articulate my feelings through various mediums with Martina's guidance. I surprised myself with my writings, poems, and artwork. 

Thank you, Martina, for this beautiful journey.

The Evil Lurking course is a great way to get you out of your comfort zone. Based on the book Evil Lurking: From Electric Chair to Kingdom Grace, this course is a partially true story and part fiction that deals with the hypothetical ethical sins and ungodly behaviour of people who work in the church. These sins and ungodly behaviour go undetected, unconfessed and hidden for years. The story of evil lurking takes you on a roller coaster of emotions that set the stage for dialogue, discussion and honest reflection on these issues in real life in and outside of the church. The student can learn a lot about themselves through the progression process that the course takes you on. You can be as open as you want or keep your opinion to yourself, but if you open up, you will find that your fellow students will soon follow suit and together, you can learn more than you expected.

On February 28, 2022, I will hold a Pilot Project Group for my 12-week online course, Emotive Expressive Adventures, to start on April 4, 2022. Participants are searching for inner healing. They wish to know about how an ever-present God is interested in a relationship with them. They are curious about hearing God's voice, seeing what He wants them to see, and trusting the process of creating something unique. I am looking for three more participants for this group—no fees nor prerequisites.
Group participation is via zoom.
Do you wonder what my credentials are? I am currently in the doctorate program D-Min with a creative focus; I graduated with a Graduate Certificate in Spiritually Informed Creative Arts (St. Stephen's Edmonton and I completed CONTEMPLATIVE, ARTS-BASED ECO-THERAPY with World Art Organization.
ONLINE TRAINING INTENSIVES with World Arts Organization, Edmonton. I have been a participant in expressive art practitioner training since 2019.
Please send an email to indicating your interest, and I will give further details.
