JIM - The Miracles of Jesus participant.
I had tremendous spiritual growth during this eRetreat and became much closer to Jesus. Sharon Conley and Wessel Bentley brought up many ideas that helped me with my relationship with Jesus. Many of the daily focuses were exactly what I needed at the time. The daily readings were helpful in getting a deeper understanding of the miracles that Jesus performed. This was my first eRetreat but definitely not my last one.
AMIE - eLearning Facilitator
I participated as a facilitator in 'Learning to Pray: Baby Steps' course. It was my first time to experience a BeADisciple and Upper Room eCourse, and I was amazed by the group that God brought together during those weeks. ... many of us had similar backgrounds and experiences that made the discussions very rich. It was a brilliant reminder to me of how God often works to bring the right people together at the right time-- even via technology! The class itself was a great refresher for me, and through the daily practices I felt my prayer life deepened and renewed. I look forward to more.
Hi! I am Coralie from Nebraska and I have just taken the Lenten Bible Study on the Miracles of Jesus from The Upper Room. This was a very uplifting experience showing how Jesus went out among the people and showed how to meet people's needs. I am caring for a husband with dementia and this was very helpful since I didn't have to leave the house to hear from people across the country through the discussion board that is part of the online studies. We had a scripture for each day and a thoughtful commentary to stimulate discussion. Thank you Upper Room for providing this service.
