“Before going to Journey U, I struggled with the effects of decades of severe trauma. My first visit brought the assurance of healing and deliverance through Christ. Everyone I encountered was loving, kind and full of the Holy Spirit! I have been a part of Journey U for over three years now, taking classes and private prayer ministry sessions, and it has been the most incredible life changing experience! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 5 years ago and it put an end to my career as a paramedic on an ambulance. It had gotten so bad that I could not get out of bed and walk standing straight up for an hour, I had to have my husband help me shower, dry off, and get dressed every day!! My kids were scared because of how bad my health was. Thank God for Angie Aberle telling me about Journey U!! I am no longer afflicted with fibromyalgia and have not taken a med for it in over 3 years!!! I had to forgive and repent then repeat! It takes deep healing which is what I got from Journey U! I am so grateful for their obedience to do what the Lord has called them to do! God is good when we are obedient!!”

“When we began at Journey U my husband & I had been dealing with the loss of our 24 yr. old son. Knowing we needed help, we sought council there which led us both to take Journey U classes. We have gained tools to help us work through our lifetimes worth of trauma. We have gained much healing and focused insight into our goals of true freedom in Christ.”
“What brought me to Journey U initially was anxiety and my overwhelming need to control issues in my life. This wonderful ministry helped me to learn to trust God in all things. It has been life changing.”
“I initially went to Journey U to help improve my relationship with my teenage daughter as well as to heal from major betrayal from my siblings after the death of my father. Dana was so gentle in leading me in the realizations of past trauma in my own life going all the way back to early childhood. As a result of these powerful, Christ-centered prayer ministry sessions, I am now able to better recognize or discern where so many negative emotions, especially rejection, stem from and how to overcome them. My relationship with my daughter has become stronger and I have been led to forgive my siblings and not hold on to bitterness. I am a work-in-progress but these sessions have given me such a deeper understanding of Jesus and what it means to take your burdens to the Cross of Christ.”
“For years, as a Christian – I had been trapped, plagued by oppressive thoughts and emotions. It was in 2018, God led me to Journey U for inner healing prayer ministry. In just one prayer session, The Holy Spirit revealed that my toxic emotions were rooted in unhealed trauma & grief. After showing me the root of my pain, God’s spirit miraculously healed my broken heart. Because of this experience, I wanted to learn more from Journey U ministries! I enrolled in their inner healing classes – where I was taught how God’s 4 spiritual laws affect every relationship in life. This incredible Bible knowledge has been instrumental for my continuing intimate relationship with God, and my success in relationship with others.”
“Jesus called out in a loud voice “Lazarus come out!” the dead man came out his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen and a cloth around face. Jesus said to them “take off the grave clothes and let him go!”
I have read that scripture in the Bible a dozen times but recently when I was reading it again I heard the Lord say ..”that was you.” I had a Lazarus moment. No I was not physically dead but I was in a tomb bound in my grave clothes just the same.
Many of us are living in tombs some of them of our own making, it feels safe there but we are living in darkness just the same. Blind to our affliction and spiritual anemia, deaf to the call of God on our lives, our hands bound, unable to do His work. In this instance for us to be raised is no less supernatural than that of Lazarus.
The Lord still wakes the living dead from their death like slumber even today. Often He uses the brothers and sisters of Christ around us to “unbind” us so that we may walk again the path the Lord has for us ..unhindered to complete our work, to run the race and cross the finish line …well done…our journey with Him. That is why the name Journey U is so perfect for such a ministry, a ministry of unbinding.. from lies that keep us trapped.
As followers of Christ we have the victory over the lies and defeat what the enemy throws at us, sometimes we have to have some help realizing that we are indeed caught up in lies and living in a tomb. Jesus said in that same passage, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
The Journey is not complete without such moments, the moments of beauty and awe and meeting others on the same journey that have seen similar sights but from a different vantage point. They hold the map and are the sojourners, traversing through the valleys as they follow Gods calling on their life, pointing the way for others. My journey is yet to be complete but I know the destination, I have caught a glimpse of it and the view is amazing! But it all started in a tomb.
I have worked in the healthcare industry for 26 years and I can not count how many times God has spoken into my spirit as I worked with patients in the hospital. One of the main things that He said to me during that time was “this is not what my plan for healing looks like”. He spoke that to me many times long before He ever brought me to Journey U to fully understand what it meant. What I have come to understand through my own personal healing is that man’s answer to healing only treats the physical symptoms and maybe addresses some emotional symptoms-stress. The biggest part of us that is not being addressed in the healing process is the spiritual issues. Spiritual issues are the how and why we react the way we do in situations or with certain people that we struggle in relationship with. By dealing with the spiritual root and realizing this is sin against God, we can then walk through the process of “Forgiveness and Repentance” and apply the power of the cross in our lives. This is what I learned through Journey U and it was transformational. I have been a believer and in church for 36 years and had never been walked through the process of sanctification like this. This is what the enemy fears the MOST! God’s people applying the blood of Jesus in their lives through Repentance and Forgiveness and truly overcoming the strongholds and lies he has conditioned us to believe. When we actively do this (“Search me O God”), He honors it and helps us overcome the enemy, but He also gives us Authority over the enemy through that process and that is part of working out our salvation- discovering our purpose and authority in Christ Jesus. Through this process, my spiritual gifts have strengthened as well as new gifts have been identified. It was a difficult journey and I know that God saved me from the path that I was on. My marriage and family were falling apart for 2 reasons:
- I was manifesting some awful things in my home with those that I loved (the wounds in my soul))
- I was serving God in big ways: Serving women & children, teaching on Spiritual Warfare, Involved with Missions in Africa & Ecuador (threats to the Kingdom of Darkness)
As I served God, the attacks at home intensified. The warfare was occurring for 2 reasons:
I had some areas of undealt with sin that God wanted me to address. The enemy had legal right to torment me because of the wounds in my soul.
- I was serving God by ministering to women and exposing the work of the enemy in their lives. (Helping them get free)
- I was following Christ, but I also had areas that needed correction!
If it was not for God bringing me to Journey U where I could receive loving correction from Spiritually mature believers, I know I would not have overcome these issues in my life. God did a powerful work in me and He is just getting warmed up! I know that my healing was not just for me, but it was for me to then be able to go back and help others discover the same healing for themselves. I now work for Journey U ministries and have been facilitating the “4 Truths” classes (Level 1 & Level 2) since the summer of 2020/throughout the pandemic to current. I have seen great breakthroughs for those who have experienced it. The way that Laura weaves her testimony with sound Biblical truth is beautiful and the journaling portion of the class work allows us to demonstrate to others how to apply this information in their own lives. What I love the most about facilitating these classes is the sharing portion. This is where the participants get to have their voices heard and overcome the enemy through their own recognition and sharing of their testimonies. THAT is where I see students connect with one another, encourage one another and learn from one another. By the end of the 6 weeks I really see “connection” with the participants and they ask each other if they are going on to Level 2 so they can continue to grow together on their journeys.
I highly recommend to ANYONE who wants their hearts healed to contact Journey U and schedule a one on one session or to go through the classes that are offered. It will transform your heart, mind and soul as well as strengthen your relationship with Jesus!
