What if you could have the relationship with Jesus you always dreamed of?

  • When you asked a question you'd get an immediate answer?

  • Jesus would tell you what he loves about you and why he's proud of you?

  • It was so easy you could get started in two minutes a day?

You Can!

Questions for Jesus is a compelling new approach to intimacy with God, based on praying about your relationship instead of what you are doing. It uses simple, relational questions that touch both his heart and your deepest desires:
  • "Jesus, why did you pick me to be on your team?"
  • "What's the first thing you'll say to me when I get to heaven?"
  • "If you wrote me a love letter today, what would it say?"

How It Works

A few years back I made one simple change in the way I pray—and my percentage of answered prayer went up about 1000%. After 35 years as a Christian, 25 as a ministry leader and 15 of coaching pastors about how to meet God in difficult circumstances (irony alert!), I was still asking Him all the wrong questions.

 >When I finally figured out how to change the subject to what He wanted to talk about, it was like our communication went from snail mail to instant messaging—and got way more intimate and revelatory in the process. 

The Questions for Jesus approach is about making that change of subject. It moves us from praying about the business of the Christian life (what I am supposed to do for Jesus) to talking with Jesus about Us—about our relationship. Questions for Jesus are intimate prayers that touch on our deepest desires--like this:

  • “Jesus, what do you like best about me today?”
  • “Jesus, why’d you make leaves green? I mean, you could have made everything gray, or the color of mud, or no color at all. Why green?”
  • “When you called James and John, and they left their business and their dad behind to run down the beach after you—what was going on in your heart in that moment?”
  • “Jesus, what did I do today that made you laugh?”

If you'd like to learn to pray like that--and hear Jesus reply profoundly in 30-60 seconds--this interactive course is for you!

This cohort based version of Questions for Jesus includes bonus LIVE activation sessions, where you'll get a chance to ask questions, participate in demos and practice your skills with peers. The live sessions take a great course and make it incredible!

    "This is the best class I have ever taken in my entire life. I can't even believe what's happening. [It rates] 100 out of 10. This is the biggest boost in my relationship with Jesus since getting baptized."

  • I will be recommending this to friends!

    I will be recommending this course to friends!! I became more confident with hearing God speak to me through this course.

  • Love the Interaction

    I really appreciate the interactive part of this course. Hearing and reading what others have to say has given me a broader view of God. I always learn more while trying things out too. I love the breakout groups (even the timer).

Great Relationships Director

Jill Williams

Why do we assume that we are just supposed to be great at relationships? We’re going along smoothly, and then when the conflict or challenges hit, we’re surprised. Relationships (no matter the type) can break down for all sorts of reasons, but they are worth investing in, protecting and worth fighting for.

I’ve been there, both professional and personally, watching God mend and make new broken relationships. He is a miracle worker when we allow Him to make new what was once broken. I’ve seen it, and I’ve experienced it!

In 2006 I began coaching marriages, alongside my husband, Jeff and together we co-authored the book, Marriage Coaching: Heart, Hope and Skills for a Great Relationship and 3 levels of Marriage Coaching Training curriculum. We even founded a non-profit relationship ministry, Great Relationships. But, after 10 years of training hundreds of leadership couples around the world our own relationship broke down.

It was during that season of brokenness, that I experienced transformation in my relationship with Jesus through the Questions for Jesus book by Tony Stoltzfus. I met Jesus in the pain and our relationship flourished because of the new types of questions that I began asking Jesus. That new way of relating with Jesus in those precious days healed my heart and has protected it for life.

Even deeper impact came when I attended my first Leadership Meta-Formation workshop in 2018. Right then, and there, I decided that I wanted to join Jeff (already a LM Certified Trainer) to use my skills to help lead, host and offer LM courses and workshops. There is nothing more satisfying to me than seeing people come alive when Jesus steps in. I wanted to be right there to watch it happen!

God had me encircled. So, it was a close reach when Jeff died unexpectedly in 2019. I had a protective fortress built to withstand the threat. There was nothing that I wanted more than remaining emotionally open as I accepted this new loss.

Which is why I am passionate about helping women live well amidst unresolved difficulty, grief or loss. Life can hit us hard, but the journey is still worth it!
