Class Recommendations:

“I cannot sing enough praises of Don's course, ("He Must Increase…").  Don created a safe and nurturing environment where I was able to learn, share, experience, and grow in my relationship with God.  The class taught me what I need to do in order to walk in the Spirit and how to do it.  I especially appreciated the way Don brought together both biblical and clinical knowledge and experiences to ground my learning.  I have returned to my notebook many times since taking the class to aid in the implementation of these essential life skills. This class has been instrumental in my walk with God and helped me learn how to die to self and embrace the beautiful life God has designed for me. ("He Must Increase…”) has my highest recommendation.”

 - Amy A. 


 “I would recommend this class to anyone who is looking not only for growth but for true transformation in their lives. The (“He Must Increase…”) class taught by Don grasped my attention from day one. Every session that was presented I found could be utilized in my life, helping to sustain me in circumstances I was going through and building me up to press even further into my future. The way the material is presented helps you to retain the information and also be interactive in the process.

“Thank you, Don, for not only creating this class but for sowing healing and strength into the lives of others.”

- Andre L.C.


“My husband and I took this class in 2022.  Don taught us several valuable life skills from a Christian perspective, each one leading us toward the goal of effectively walking in the Spirit of God. Handouts were provided each week with detailed notes, references for further research and daily questions that led us into deeper thinking about the lesson. Don has wisdom and deep insights to share in this area and he accomplishes this with humor, wit and excellence. We feel we are now much better equipped to live daily in submission to Him, walking in His Spirit.”

- David and Kathy K.
