We are catalysts for training and imparting healing through the Word and the Spirit of the Lord for humanity (individuals, churches, and communities), teaching them how to appropriate the cross and the blood of Christ into wounded hearts to unearth hidden lies they believe about themselves, God, and others and to set the captives free, bringing the old man to death, working those issues through the cross, and rising again with the resurrection power of Christ into their God-given identity, giftings, and callings, casting aside tolerable recovery and managed behavior, and stepping into the fullness of freedom of God in Christ Jesus.

“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” — Philippians 3:12-14 NKJV

Inner Healing Retreat at Lake Lanier, Georgia

March 18-22, 2019

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?! Are you tired of life and wondering if this is “All there is?” Are you re-playing the same old tapes in your mind over and over of why things (life, job, relationships, etc.) didn’t go differently? Are you depressed, sick in your body, and overwhelmed? Is your marriage stuck? Do you find your arguments are about the same old thing over and over? Do you have issues that continue to haunt your marriage? Do you find yourself wondering who you are and why you were created? Have you been crying out to God to help you? IF so, here is your answer!!!

IT IS TIME to drop all of that old baggage and meet us at the lake to uncover your very best self!

Sometimes we just need to get away in a beautiful, quiet, serene environment to “reset” our heart and mind. But often, that’s not possible. There are always people around and the world is LOUD, and BUSY! AND, if we do get away, we often don’t know how to “reset.” SO, we come back home and the same old thoughts, pains, and heartache come crushing back in again.

We understand! AND, we CAN HELP! We will provide the tools to help you walk away from hurt ONCE AND FOR ALL in a beautiful, serene, lake environment.

We have scheduled a week-long retreat opportunity just for you to work through issues of your heart that have you stuck, abused, misunderstood, lonely, and alone. (Just to name a few?!)

Mark your calendars! IT IS TIME to trade your baggage for luggage so you can move into who God created you to be! No more broken-heartedness, no more despair, no more sickness, no more shame, NO MORE being stuck! It’s time to shed all of that and learn a new way of living your best life! If you’re not living in joy and peace and in the REST of the Holy Spirit then you’re not living your best self!

We are offering a week-long retreat (Mar 18-22, 2019) for individuals and/or couples and church groups to help you break out of your “OLD” self and burst into the fullness of the identity that God created for you! Don’t miss it!

We are partnering with The Ark on Lake Lanier to offer an opportunity for you to sequester yourself away in a beautiful serene environment with others much like yourself for the sake of healing your heart! We have a fully trained team to offer insight, testimonies, prayer ministry, tips and training and amazing worship to help move you from lies into the TRUTH of the plan God has for you! We will help you work through the issues of your heart that have you stuck and have a great time doing so.

Don’t go into 2019 fighting the same old battles! See below for application and registration. We are praying for you now!!!

Beginning Biblical Hebrew

If you would like to learn how to read words in biblical Hebrew, here is a very beginning class for you. No prior experience is needed. We will learn the basics step by step.

We will learn the Hebrew alphabet, 40 words from the Bible, important biblical names, several Bible verses, and a prayer/blessing. Biblical Hebrew is a beautiful language that reveals God’s heart in amazing ways.

We will learn the alphabet slowly, and you will start learning words from the very first week. Best of all, when you learn the foundations of biblical Hebrew, you can look up any word to find its richness of meaning, for a lifetime of exploration. This class will teach you how.

Two options are available: live via Skype or self-study via online video course.

The 8-week live class is offered via Skype (you will also have access to online videos to review at your convenience). Cost is $65. Classes are taught live on Wednesdays from 6-7 pm E.T. The Fall course is underway, and the next course will begin in January 2019.

If you prefer a self-study video course, this is available online for $50. You can begin any time at your convenience, and you will have ongoing access to review the videos. (If you plan to take the live course, please note that the video course is included in your live course price.)

Fall classes for biblical Hebrew have begun. For more information and to register for Winter and Spring classes, please contact Janet Eriksson (Instructor) directly by email at janet [dot] e [dot] writer [at] gmail [dot] com.




In the 90s, as an addict and pursuer of all things worldly, Kerri had an encounter with the God she had read and heard about, but couldn’t previously seem to interact with.

After experiencing the power of God through inner healing, she began to realize and study the effects prayer ministry has regarding sickness, disease, and dysfunction. She began to see and experience the power of healing over the mind, body, and soul through the power of repentance and restoration.

For over 20 years now, she has lived, studied, and trained others locally, nationally, and internationally in the healing process. She has a vision to see people led out of sickness, disease, sin, and bondage through the power of the cross and blood of Jesus Christ.

After having pastored for 12 years, Kerri felt led to leave her comfortable job to pursue a vision of helping others who have a passion for healing. Her desire is to see restoration and redemption of individuals and their families, as well as healing in their land, in churches, and in communities.

With the ultimate goal of facilitating healing, she is leading and training others into discovering their calling and identity through preaching, teaching, seminars, retreats, and live schools.

She believes we all have a part in the reconciliation process. Her desire is to help individuals, churches, and communities network together, to see our nation healed and restored to the original intent of God in Christ Jesus.

In 2015, Kerri founded The Center for Inner Healing and began building a training center that houses healing rooms, inner healing seminars for grownups and churches, boot camps for kids, retreats, trainings, live schools, and in-house prayer/intercession trainings as well.

The Center also offers prayer ministry for kids, adults, marriages, and families, as well as internships for those who want to develop their gifting and pursue a calling of inner healing in their own churches and communities.

Kerri lives in a beautiful farm environment with her husband of 20 years and their 16-year-old son. They also have two adult children and one amazing four-year-old Grand. Their home is full of life with a spunky little Yorkie, a mature Labrador Retriever, and a grumpy old cat.

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. – 2 Corinthians 3:18

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” – Isaiah 61:1
