Inner healing that helps you be as healthy, whole, and close to Jesus as possible is the heart behind all the resources Shelemah offers!
In Hebrew Shelemah means completely whole. It is related to the word Shalom bringing with it the idea of peace that comes with wholeness — Refuah shelemah is even a common saying akin to Get Well Soon.
May the God of shalom make you completely whole — may your entire spirit-mind-body be kept healthy until the coming of our Lord Jesus the Messiah.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23
I fully believe that the offer of health in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 is not only possible, but what God desires for each of us now, not just in the future. Wholeness often starts with emotional and spiritual healing but also must address lifestyle habits affecting the body for the changes to stick.
Let me join you on your journey to being as healthy, whole, and close to Jesus as possible! My unique skill set combining counseling training, inner healing ministry, and mind-body work will help you find the wholeness you’ve been looking for.
Shelemah is home to a variety of inner healing resources to support you on your journey. If you’d like to work with me personally on your journey, check out the options at Captive Thought Therapy, the inner healing model I’ve developed from my diverse skill set.
Leah Lesesne (pronounced lay-uh like the princess and luh-sane) lives in downtown Atlanta with her family and their urban farm full of critters. They call Bethel Atlanta Church home and are so blessed by the family of spiritual fathers and mothers they have there. Leah spent years in the mental health counseling world frustrated by the lack of lasting healing she saw. She knew there had to be better answers for the pain her clients felt. Convinced of God’s promise in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 of complete wholeness spirit-mind-body, she returned to her roots of inner healing prayer and found revelation after revelation of God’s answers to lasting breakthrough. Her mission is to share those revelations to help you be as healthy, whole, and close to Jesus as possible.
