Do you feel like you’re living in black & white and find yourself:

There IS hope!

God can heal you as you create.

  • Spiritually: Experience God’s extravagant love and discover His plan for your life

  • Emotional Release: Learn to let go of pain from your past

  • Relationally: Learn to trust God, love yourself, and trust others

  • Sexually: If it’s been stolen, God wants to restore your innocence and purity

  • Family: Find acceptance and belonging in God’s spiritual family as He restores broken relationships.

So how does this work?


All of my life, I’ve been curious about helping others become free. I saw so many people, including myself, know about God, but never feel truly loved and accepted because of pain from their past.

This led me to earning my degree in Psychology from Vanguard University along with an Art in Healing certificate from Chapman University. I saw how deeply people suffered and how much God wants to heal us. 

John 10:10 says that the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but that God has come to give life and that more abundantly.

So how do we receive the more abundantly part and get back what was stolen from us?

Knowing about God’s love is not the same as allowing God to heal the pain deep inside. It’s like living with a splinter. Sure, we can function, but every time something presses against that splinter, pain resurfaces and we’re back in the same cycle.

Unresolved trauma leads to broken relationships, addictions, and false belief systems that keep us from facing the pain to let God heal us.

In 2009, I was asked by a UN representative to go to Rwanda and work with the genocide orphans. These victims saw their families massacred as children and the trauma made them unable to function in society.  My job was to bring healing to them through creativity. 

Never having been done before, I developed a curriculum where they encountered God’s Presence in the midst of their trauma and PTSD. As they told their stories for the first time through creativity like art, dance, crafts, photography, and writing they got set free. Some have even gone on to become accomplished creatives.

Wow! God dangled this carrot in front of me and said, “Theresa, do you want to create a program for others too?”

This adventure led me to going back to Chapman University to study Art in Healing. I adapted the program into a 6-week course that has brought healing to:

  • The sex slave trade

  • Isis victims in Iraq 

  • refugees in Greece and other countries

After seeing such proven success, I wanted to develop this online course for you using the same principles I learned in Rwanda.
