His Majestic Healing Power
August 26, 2013
One of the things God had laid upon my heart for our conference was to start a blog. He wanted us to record all the greatness He was doing through the conference, but also among the lives of those individuals who were working on this event. Below, you are going to read the testimony of Alyssa Giugliano. Members of the team felt that God wanted Alyssa to choreograph and dance a special piece for the Breathe Conference. We were trusting God that He would make a way for her to do so despite medical issues she’d been facing. Realize, this… God is able to heal. He is the author of healing. He owns the title to healing. No matter if you need physically, emotional, spiritual or emotional – He is able! He is Jehovah Rapha, the God who Heals. Believe Him for it…
“Five months ago I had to get back surgery to fix an injury that occurred 4 months prior. I had herniated a disk and a piece dislodged onto my sciatic nerve that was making my right foot numb. After a month of rest, I was ready to start therapy to get my back better so that I would be ready to dance again. Everything was going great until about two months ago when everything started to back spiral. The pain in my back was increasing, the numbness immensely increased in my right foot, now traveling up my ankle, and my left foot started going numb as well. Even though I have always loved God and always was a Christian, I really started to question why this was all happening and why it was happening to me. The pain and struggle of the situation was so deep it was hard for me to see the light and look past the current situation/state I was in. However, this past week I attended Global Awakening conference in Orlando, Florida. I was very excited to attend, and knew that I felt I was supposed to be there. What I didn’t know was that my life was going to be FOREVER changed by GOD. During the conference, the power of God’s presence and Holy Spirit would come on so strong I would rest for hours, day after day. God took me to a secret place, and I had divine encounters with Jesus. Thursday night, as I was resting in God’s presence, God told me He was healing me. As I laid there, God continued to speak and then told me I was healed. After waking up, I KNEW that what just had taken place was ALL GOD and His voice was so true. God completely healed me and I have NO numbness in either of my feet – they are ON FIRE!!! I know and believe God and His plans are BEYOND and GREATER than us. God’s love is stronger and deeper than anything we can imagine! He wants us ALL to experience Him in a divine glorious encounter, because once we do, we will NEVER want to go back to any other way of life. For me, I believe allowing Gods presence and power of His Holy Spirit to take over, so that His incredible and unchanging love may be shown to all and all for HIS glory, is the only way to live!!!”
Needless to say, you’ll see Alyssa perform at the Breathe Conference!

God the Great Promoter
August 23, 2013
If you ever need a marketing plan, there is one person I would highly recommend turning to… His name, Jesus Christ. He not only knows how to strategically put a plan together, but He also knows how to execute it so that you obtain victory!
As the EHM team continued to seek the Lord about direction in marketing the conference, God led us down a path of faith and trust in Him. We were on a limited budget and weren’t sure how to bring awareness of the Breathe Conference, “BUT God….”
He has opened more doors for us than we could ever imagine. He connected us with Faith Pittsburgh Magazine, who advertised our conference in their event’s calendar for free! The magazine was distributed in July to thousands of customers…
A few days later, we were utterly saying, “BUT God,” as He opened the door for us again through K-Love. K-Love advertised our event on their website at no cost to us. We stood in awe of God as we realized how many people were going to be brought aware of the conference.
Why is this so important? Because I believe many are facing some real challenges within their lives and are not sure of the direction to go. Let me tell you, God is able to open doors that no man can close! He is not only willing and able, but He longs for you to walk down the path He has designed for you. There are others of you who God is asking to walk the faith walk with Him. Let me reassure you that when God calls you to something, He will see you through. He provides not only the best plan, but He also makes a way where there seems to be no way.
God desires for His people to come into His presence with a hunger for Him to know Him. He is waiting to reveal Himself to you personally.
With great expectation, awaiting our time together in September,
Countdown to Breathe Conference: 21 Days
The Countdown of His Greatness
August 4, 2013
As I think about what is going to transpire within the next 40 days as we get closer to the “Breathe Conference,” my heart is overcome with great joy, anticipation and expectation of our Mighty God.
I believe that we are on a quest with God as He is looking to impart His Word into the hearts of His daughters. God has laid it upon my heart to start a blog, specifically for the conference. At first, I thought it was for those just attending the event, but then I realized it was for all to see. God is looking to build His faith, hope and love into the hearts of His people.
So the journey began for me back in December 2012, as I sought God on what He desired for EHM to accomplish in 2013. He told me that one of our missions would be to hold a conference. To be honest, I thought God was crazy. How could God expect us to sponsor, organize, and conduct a conference when I felt within my heart that we were such a young and obscure ministry? I thought, who does He think we are – Joyce Meyer Ministries? Isn’t that how we always think – How could God use me?… I’m just saved…. I’m not experienced enough…. I’m not equipped to do what He called me to do. That, my dear friend, is the beginning of the journey for all of us. God isn’t looking for experience – all put together people who are thoroughly equipped, but He desires for His people who hunger to have a heart for Him, to know Him and to be used by Him for His glory. God desires to reveal a deeper side of Himself to each of us and that is exactly what He is doing with me and the team of EHM.
Our journey to fulfill His wishes continued to evolve as God spoke this verse over me:
“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power; but by my Spirit, says the LORD Almighty.” – Zechariah 4:6. I knew this year would be a year of complete dependence, utter trust and total surrender to Him. This project had nothing to do with my ability or anyone on the team, but the complete works of God, Himself. God was taking each of us to a new level of experience, expectation and awareness of Who He is and how mighty He is. He is teaching each of us to obtain a greater revelation of Him. The heart of God is for His people to know Him in an intimate way. He longs to dwell among His people and give them love, direction, hope and assurance.
So the excursion ventured on as God directed our first steps to the location of where we would facilitate the conference. I must say, it was a test of faith. So many times I felt like Abraham and Sarah. It was first walking in obedience to God’s direction, then it was standing firm in what He had stated, to then trusting He would be faithful in the end. I still recall how my faith was tested in Him as I had to really press on. It was a battle for me. What transpired within a few days seemed like years to me. I was second guessing myself, “Did I hear God correctly? Do I really know His voice? I would rise early in the morning to continue to seek Him. I was literally at a point of desperation, because all I wanted was to make sure that I knew His voice. Nothing else mattered to me.
I began to wrestle within myself, and thought maybe this isn’t the right direction, so I decided to take matters into my own hands, going to plan ‘B’. However, the lesson was this: when the Teacher gives a test, He doesn’t speak, but waits to see how you respond. This was how it was for me – God was waiting to see how I was going to respond to His direction. I dropped plan B and went back to His original direction. By Saturday afternoon of the following week, God’s faithfulness was proven and He opened doors that no man could close. I knew right then and there that this Breathe Conference was far greater than my mind could perceive. He reaffirmed within my spirit, the works of this event would not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit.
So over the next 40 days, we are going to continue to share with you all the wonderful events that God has done in preparing us for the conference in September, as well as, preparing each of our hearts for Him.
We want you to be a part of this journey with us. I believe God desires to impart revelations of Himself to each of your hearts. He wants each of us to come with an expectancy of Him to work within our lives. I firmly believe this Breathe Conference has nothing do with EHM, we are just facilitators being used by God, but it truly is an event He ordained for you and Him.
Join us over these next 40 days, and see what God does; then I ask you to join us on September 13th and 14th to experience your own encounter with Him. I will close with one final thought which is not my own but the very heart of God spoken to me for each of you: “My heart is to breathe Myself into each one – not one will go unnoticed – each one will be touched by Me, for I will not turn away to whom I have drawn to Me.”
My heart, O God waits for you and to see you move, for in you, we live, move and have our being.
