We are glad you are here

In 2014, our mentor, Jim Wilder, asked us to write a book about the Immanuel Journaling process.  We were putting the elements in the IJ process into practice for a few years at church and locally with a small circle of friends.  Jim experimented with it in his teachings across the globe and we took the process and put it into book form.  The book was released in 2015 and we've taught the process across the US and the world.  

The four authors have taught it locally in their churches and together have shared it all over the world and the US.  Most recently John + Sungshim were invited to teach a group of wonderful people in The Netherlands and Switzerland (YWAM Chatel) in the summer of 2019.

Now we are launching out into spreading hope by empowering people with relationship skills that integrate scripture and brain science.  it is our desire to see people connect to God so they can live freely and love fully.

2020 is the year we will launch a podcast, bring additional resources to help people start a group from scratch and collect stories so we can encourage and inspire the body of Christ to experience a loving bond with God.

It is our dream that people taste and see how good the Lord is.  God's loving presence can bring healing, hope and strength to your daily life.  Join us for the adventure of attaching to God together.

“I was thrilled to see that John and Sungshim Loppnow have contributed to this beautiful book. In the context of many years of friendship, I’ve watched them walk this path with intention, honesty, and courage. I’m thankful for the ways they’ve created invitations for many of us to walk this path, too.”
