Testimonies

So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God who makes things grow.

1 Corinthians 3:7

Having just completed the '4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice' course in July and learning and growing so much in my relationship with God because of it, I knew I didn't want that growth to stop - I needed it to continue because there were still areas in my life/heart that needed healing and that I knew only God could help mend. Thankfully, individual coaching was available and Andrew was there to humbly, patiently, and graciously lead me closer to God. Before starting the coaching program, I had a lot of "ideas" about who I thought I was (mostly negative) and who I thought God was (some negative), but after going through the program, and having Andrew use his discernment and incredible gift of hearing the Holy Spirit in what was needed, he was able to provide me with readings, videos to watch, heartfelt feedback, and scriptures to read that touched my heart exactly at the right time and place to change those "ideas". As an example, I am continuing to use a lesson learned from one of the videos daily so my heart can be free from bitterness as I move forgiveness out of my head and into my heart (Luke 6:27-28) - I didn't think I would ever find that peace! I'm so grateful to God for putting it on the hearts of men like Andrew to want to share their gifts and love of God with others. Being able to have a real, two-way relationship, with a loving God, has made all the difference. -- Cathy, October 9, 2021

I had an amazing experience of renewed healing in my walk with the Lord Jesus! I gained insight into areas of my life that I was still wounded from and had to release and become more vulnerable to God and His love and forgiveness. I learned simple ways of hearing God's voice and following His direction for my future. It was very specific and amazingly inspiring!! Andrew is very gifted, discerning, and sensitive to the Holy Spirit and I am truly blessed by the program!!  -- Gina, September 24, 2021

I was curious about where God was leading me. There were circumstances in my professional career that forced me to reflect "Is this where I'm supposed to be?" My family life situation was stressful, I was trying to balance working full-time, being a wife and mother. Not to mention, adapting to a new way of life, in the middle of a pandemic. I had the opportunity to work with Andrew in the Transformational Coaching program. This experience enabled me to renew my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I was able to learn about my new identity in Him. I know that spending time with Him has brought clarity about - who I am and what I am called to do. Andrew curated specific videos and readings for me, my relationship with God grew stronger through these experiences. I learned how to be still in prayer, to open the eyes of my heart to listen and understand the Spirit guiding me, and I experienced the transformative power of two-way journaling. The coaching and bible study provided me the tools to really deepen my understanding of what a true relationship with God is, apply His word, and taught me to read scripture in a more personal way. I'm grateful to know how much my Father loves me and the calling He has placed on me to help others. Thank you Andrew for being an instrument of God's love!  -- Amanda, August 18, 2021

Before taking the 4 Keys to Hearing God’s Voice course, I never believed that I heard God’s voice, that I could ever hear God’s voice or that He could really, truly hear mine - prayer was just going through the motions and always one way. After taking the course, I believe God listens and hears my prayers and that he talks to me because I know how to hear Him now! It’s an amazing and beautiful feeling to feel connected to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and have hope for a deeper relationship and understanding of the Trinity and of God’s will for my life. It was also an incredible breakthrough to realize that God’s voice is always going to be coming from the fruits of the Holy Spirit and any of the negative thoughts I’ve had or may have are not from God but the enemy or my own internal negativity and I need to focus on and remember above all that God is love!  -- Cathy, July 29, 2021

First, let me say thank you for providing this opportunity. I also thank God for allowing this to come to me. What 4 Keys To Hearing God's Voice course gave me was a much clearer understanding of what I am reading as far as scripture is concerned. I doubt every single thing in my life. Or at least I did until recently. Mostly I doubted myself. Having 90 minutes a week to work with what I consider TWO instructors, Andrew & Ligia (fellow classmate), has given me many tools. But more importantly, it's given me a stronger faith in my walk with the Lord. I still don't necessarily know where I'm going or who I will be when I get there. But I do know Who to ask & a much better understanding of how to receive the answers. Thank you so much for your guidance Andrew. I'm kind of sad it's over. I have never been that dedicated or committed to a class in my 54 years. God Bless  -- Lisa, July 29, 2021

I’m very glad that I signed up to take the 4 Keys to Hearing to God’s Voice class. Before I started, I felt like God didn’t speak to me at all. As I learned the 4 keys, I realized that He has spoken to me lots of times. Now, more than ever, I understand that God wants to speak to all of us. And putting the 4 keys into practice, communicating with Him has become much simpler. Thanks, Andrew! -- Ligia, July 29, 2021

Coaching with Andrew has been transformational for me. I did not really know what to expect but God has done more than I could have asked or imagined. He used Andrew powerfully through these coaching sessions and assignments. The combination of his heart for God and his sensitivity to the Spirit gave him a focus which felt deep and insightful. I felt as if I arrived at coaching presenting numerous challenges in my life, but Andrew was able to discern the root issues and home in on the Kingdom keys to unlock my heart. As a result, I feel that my relationship with God has been restored, I have grown in my true identity in Him and received emotional healing. What’s more, I know that through Andrew God has put me back on track. I am confident that I am now on a different trajectory, the one that is in alignment with my destiny, and I am very grateful! -- Andrea, June 25, 2021

Coaching with Andrew was a life changing experience for me. I was stuck in areas of my walk with the Lord and working with Andrew for 4 weeks I have recognized the barriers that were holding me back.  I also learned to hear God’s voice and truly experience His abundant love and joy! Andrew is blessed with discernment and he is sensitive to the Spirit of God. He knew the precise tools and resources each week to propel me to my next step.  I loved learning the two-way journal! This journaling has moved me into a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with Andrew! -- Dorie, March 30, 2021

God has used Andrew’s ministry in my life in an incredible way. For many years I struggled to see myself in my true identity as a child of God and missed out on developing a relationship with Him as my father and Lord. I had an extensive education in “Christianity” and the Bible. But my heart was held back by lies that the enemy had planted deep within that I had chosen to believe about my past and God’s reality in my life. Andrew has been blessed by God with a powerful gift to peel back the layers. His sensitivity to the Spirit of God allowed him to be a wonderful facilitator of the message that God wanted to deliver to me. In the process of going through the Spiritual Transformation coaching, Andrew helped me shed many long term barriers I had put up in my heart toward God and to begin a new revitalized relationship filled with joy and peace. This freedom has completely changed the way I handle every aspect of my life. I hope that many people can experience the same kind of miracle in their own lives. I am very thankful for how God has used The Shepherd and Me in my life! -- Christian, March 29, 2021

I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to spend 4 weeks with Andrew and Maria. It was a time of spiritual awareness and awakening in my life. Each week the experience was clearly led by the Holy Spirit. God spoke through both Andrew and Maria in very unique ways. They both enlightened me in areas where I needed help growing closer to Jesus. Unlike most therapy/coaching sessions, they were both vulnerable about their life experiences and openly shared them with me. I am grateful for the session re-caps they sent to me along with related "homework" to focus on prior to our next coaching session. They kept me focused on the goals we felt were important to achieve. The Word of God was paramount in their coaching. They go "vertical" prior to "horizontal" in all areas of this work. I so appreciated that related scripture was a part of every session. I never felt like I was "on the clock" during our meetings. They were so very accommodating and never did I feel rushed. Though I originally thought I was doing these sessions to work on one particular area of my spiritual/personal life...as the Holy Spirit led, there were many ways that He took both our discussions and focus in a different direction. Lastly, I believe the suggested monetary contribution is far less than the value of this coaching. I would highly recommend this very unique and individual coaching experience to others who are seeking to grow closer to Jesus. As I stated, what we think this might mean might take on an entirely different direction in the process. God has a way of doing that...doesn't He? -- Jan, February 4, 2021

Coming into the Walking with God course I was in a rut I couldn't seem to get out of. I was seeking God, but I wasn't seeking him with my whole heart...I was looking to more worldly things to find answers. I was looking at all the "spiritual" people who seemed to be experiencing more freedom than I was. Going through this with Andrew really woke me up to what I was missing with God. I realized I was hearing from God but not believing that I could hear from him so I was missing it. I had a LOT of God speaking moments happen during my time in this group. I couldn't believe how much stuff God was speaking to me through my time with him and through other people even strangers! I now have a huge understanding of what I need to do to remain in this new space with God. I need to abide with him. I need to start my day in abiding time with him. I cannot start my day any other way. Thank you so much for speaking into our lives and helping us find how to walk with God more closely, Andrew! -- Angela, September 28, 2020

The four-week program that I went through with Andrew, changed my way of thinking about my relationship with God. I was a workaholic and identified who I am through my job and not Jesus Christ and if we were not going through this pandemic, I would have never heard the Holy Spirit tugging at my heart on forgiveness and I would have never made the time to listen that I needed to change my value system of myself. I have known Andrew for 12 years and he happened to call me when I was most vulnerable. As he told me God put it on his heart to reach out to me, I shared with him how I need to forgive my mother and others who have hurt me in my past and I agreed to a week a 4 week program on forgiveness with him. I had no idea the impact every session would have on me! I have not seen or spoken to my mother in 25 years and over the weeks after my sessions with Andrew, I was able to forgive her and others and I am now having my mother at my house for Thanksgiving. I am using the two-way journaling and so many other tools that Andrew taught me. Thank you for your kindness, understanding and most importantly, holding me accountable for my actions. I have told everyone I know who is in bondage like myself how they can be free and truly have a two-way relationship with God. -- Anonymous, September 23, 2020

I very much enjoyed taking "The Walk with God" classes with Andrew. I learned a lot. For me the biggest and best realization was that contrary to my erroneous childhood beliefs and experience that God is mean and cruel, I came to realize that God is a loving God who wants to have intimate relationships, and God goes out of His way to work for us to to enjoy life and to be happy! I learned that God is indeed a God of love and peace who wants to work, walk and talk with us. Taking this class was a very enjoyable and rewarding experience for me. -- George, September 14, 2020

I met Andrew through an on-line course that we were both taking together. As the course progressed he noticed something that I was pointing to in my life but I didn't know what to do about it. So he reached out to me first and suggested that we meet over video chat. As Andrew and I talked, he told me that he has had success with others in the same place as me (meaning place in life as well as spiritually) and he asked if I would be interested in four weeks of coaching with him. I'm familiar with Christian Inner Healing and similar ministries but I had never been through a coaching session. I really enjoyed the entire experience. While Inner Healing might be the process of washing away the hurt and sin in our lives, this was discovering where I was struggling in my walk with Jesus Christ, why, and what I should do about it. Andrew took the time to break down certain moments to help me see what I wasn't seeing before. He helped me to become more aware in the moment of what the Holy Spirit was doing and how to respond more appropriately to what He was doing in, around, and through me. This has been incredibly valuable to me because Andrew helped me realize the moment that I had been wanting with the Lord had occurred but I hadn't seen it for what it should have been. To have Andrew say "That was it!" was so eye opening to me. Because of his coaching, I'm finally learning what it means to be a son of God and that I'm finally, in my heart, come to the place with Jesus that I've always wanted to be at. Thanks Andrew!​ -- Matt, September 12, 2020

I just completed a four-week inner-healing journey with God and his stewards, Andrew and Maria. They are a powerful couple that are very obedient to hearing from the Lord. I have been following God all my life since I can remember at age 5. Recently while in Covid 19 lockdown, I received a very unexpected gift from God, Maria and Andrew. God's timing is perfect as He sent me these two shepherds that would lead me on a journey. I thought I had just heard from God a day or two before Maria reached out to me. I had just started talking about God and my journey online and began writing a book that I had started in High school. God was saying your story is not yours and it is time. I had no idea what obedience would cost me. I was fresh out of a relationship that wounded me at the time and shook me to the core of my being. It was what I thought was a Christian founded relationship, so that wounded me in a new place of my heart. I had wounds prior to that and thought I had dealt with those wounds and was healed, “I thought” (abuse, betrayal, father was an alcoholic, lost relatives to cancer and heart disease, and so much more). What little did I know that in all this God was calling me to an even higher purpose. I am absolutely sure of that now. This journey with my shepherds, Maria and Andrew, made me go back before I could move forward. I had to re-visit places I did not know where still haunting me and affecting me in my life now and the future ahead. See, I never understood how important it was to have purposeful intimacy with God. We worked on journaling, talking to God, forgiveness, and generational things that only God could heal, and fill, the voids. Now walking into my future, I feel equipped to be a better mother, future wife, friend, Steward, daughter to my ABBA. I feel compassion for my abusers and those that have wounded me along the way. I am so grateful to this ministry because they helped on every level. I feel ready for whatever this life throws my way. I know who I am but better yet whose I am! I am a jewel to be sought after, a daughter of a King, I know who my real ABBA father is and now I know that just like Job in the Bible and Ruth and Ester I am beautifully and wonderfully made in God's creation. I live with purpose, intention, and identity. I know my journey has just begun but God has the wheel and I have surrendered every part of my life to Him. Maria and Andrew offer life skills, based on biblical principles. They don't judge but make you feel loved. They are truly in their right calling. Well, there is so much more I can say but you will know once you experience your own walk and journey because it is unique for each and every one of us and some things can't be explained, only experienced. Holy Spirit was present in every moment and true love was on display through these two! A power couple sent from above indeed doing what God has called them to be together and apart!!! God first, on solid ground and you cannot be shaken!!! I am a new creation!!! God does have a purpose for my pain. There are no words that could thank you both enough. Amen -- Anonymous, July 2, 2020

When I decided I wanted to work with a life coach, my first desire was for a “thinking partner”—someone who was filled with the Spirit and could help me sift through inner conflicts I was wrestling with between pursuing my dream of being a prolific fiction author and my assignment from the Lord to co-lead a ministry venture with my wife. When I first approached Andrew about working with me, I concluded in short order that he had the anointing, wisdom, and objectivity I needed. He led me through a powerful and efficient four-week process of Identifying three goals that would, if achieved, build attitudes and action orientations that would sort through my inner conflicts from God’s perspective, and lead to more fulfillment in my ministry assignment, clarity in God’s calling to storytelling, assurance of God’s plan for my life in this season, and the practical benefit of freeing up more time for that which fulfills my calling and satisfies my soul. After completing the four-week journey with him, I can joyfully say, “Mission accomplished.” Andrew’s emphasis on seeing my issues and inner conflicts through the lens of Biblical truth, and seeking personal revelation from the Holy Spirit, made all the difference. I highly recommend Andrew’s Spiritual Breakthrough Coaching program!”  -- Dennis, June 17, 2020

At first, I didn't know what I was looking for. I just knew I wanted to get closer to GOD and learn how to live a truthful, fearless, happy Christian life. I took the 4 week course and was given so much from Andrew. Andrew helped me find myself, find GOD on a different level and gave me tools to help with things I was dealing with and continue to deal with in my life through God's word. I now know who I am and how God sees me. He sees me as His child and how God's gift of salvation does not become ours until we accept it and make it our own but WE, as followers, must reach out in faith, accept HIM and seek HIS wisdom through the word. I learned the Lord's power is made perfect in my weaknesses and all I have to do is have FAITH. Faith in GOD our Father and his son the LORD Christ Jesus. Andrew gave me so much. I can never thank him enough for what he has taught me and the wise words he instilled in my heart. Now I move forward every day getting stronger with every step no matter what life throws at me, I continue to move forward. I battle the devil every single day and after this, I am stronger and never go into battle alone. I am already victorious before the battle even begins. Why? Because the Lord's power rests upon me. I read and write often now and through the grace of GOD and the help of Andrew, I am a better man, a better husband a better friend, and most of all I know who I am in God's eyes. "I am His child." I am now fearless with a sound mind and a spiritual understanding of what I need to do as a servant of GOD. I only fear GOD, follow his word, and as a righteous man, I continue to move forward. Thank you, AndrewA strong spiritual warrior you helped make me, brother. -- M.O, June 9, 2020

My goals initially were to build a stronger relationship with God by trusting Him more in everyday things in my life and to limit my reaction to daily issues that would provoke negative feelings. Andrew was so easy to open up to, and he spoke amazingly from the heart and from the bible. Andrew gave me the tools with bible verses on how to lean into God more, be more intentional, and how to speak with God more throughout the day. This program has taught me how to step into faith, put my trust in God, and to let God reveal Himself more to me. Amazingly, my relationships and day to day business issues have improved greatly with the tools from this program. Andrew, your love and passion for Christ has ultimately helped me to strengthen and deepen my love for Him more also. Thank you. -- Tim, April 18, 2020

I consider myself a Christian and I thought I knew God.  What I realized through Andrew's guidance and teachings is that there is so much more to God. He provided amazing material that helped me understand how God, Jesus & the Holy Spirit work together in developing my relationship with God on a deeper level.  The "Pillar I - Relationship with God" program was flexible and had the right amount of material that made me hungry to learn more.  Andrew did an amazing job at making the subjects relatable to me and my life.  His program really opens up your eyes and heart to God as our Father, Jesus sacrifice, and the new covenant with mankind and our purpose here on earth.  If your a beginner Christian and are trying to understand the Bible or what the next step is after being baptized as a new Christian, I recommend taking his "Pillar I - Relationship with God" program. -- A.D., March 25, 2020

Andrew has a way of sharing God's word that gives me the confidence to draw strength from my relationship with Jesus. Rather than succumbing to feelings of guilt and wanting to give up, I begin to take action and not stay in my head going over the same thoughts and regrets time and again.  I'm able to begin the process of renewing God's forgiveness daily that is empowering me toward a closer relationship with Him, as well as my friends and family.  When Andrew talks about and shares his relationship with our Heavenly Father in a personal way, it opens up the possibility of having a closer walk in the Spirit with Jesus that is based on scripture and a real spiritual redemptive experience.  Andrew’s gifts are clear: his encouragement and understanding are both emotional and spiritual support.   Andrew brings together Bible verses and prayer that work together in a way where I have the all-important connection with God.  With Andrew’s assistance, I'm also beginning to better understand my identity in Christ that allows me to live a more resilient life as a Christian man.  This all helps me to especially impact my Son with God's love as a single parent, creating a new legacy with my Son. -- Anonymous, March 11, 2020
