Dr. Trudy M. Johnson

Certified Trauma Specialist (CCTP-I)

Helping you through Christian Retreats & Sabbaticals

My prayer before every intensive is that the words I speak to my clients would be God’s words and not my own.  I would be honored to be God’s spokesman working with you for 4 or 5 days at an A’nesis Sabbatical. 

In the words of Jeremiah, “You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.”   –Jeremiah 1:7
