The assignment was challenging, and a lot more work than I thought at first, but it also does put everything I learned into perspective. I am very glad I did it. I did learn a lot from the assignment as some of the question were where I had to put what I learned to practical use, for example the caring list so I could understand the information even better. The studies as well as the assignment helped me in my marriage since my husband and I started making caring lists and communicating better now the we understand our differences. I would recommend it to any person working in ministry, because the more tools and knowledge you have the more the Holy Spirit can lead and guide you from that. My husband is also interested in doing the course.

The assignments are not difficult, some questions may be a bit tricky but as everything in life, you can’t learn something if its given to you on a silver platter, so I enjoy the challenge, I’m not always good at it, but I enjoy it. I really enjoy learning through you, it helped me to understand a number of things through the time I’ve been with you guys. My family and I have gone through some stuff. While studying I’ve learned to understand, why people do what they do, why people feel and how to try and help them along the way, although no one in the family want to listen to the youngest :). But it really does help me, just to understand and not to judge. I would definitely recommend Divine Love Institute to anyone. Divine had a lot of patience with me in every way, in the past I could not always meet the payment or I took weeks to complete assignments, they never said a bad word to me and always understood. And if the Lord will let me I’ll definitely try to finish my studies at divine at the highest qualification I can.

My studies is going well, I am busy with the counselors tool guide i find it very helpful in the sense that there is a lot of things i know now what to look out for when counseling someone. Some assignments are easy and some are difficult in the sense that you have to go and look for the answers in prayer and in research I prefer it that way, because it challenges the way that you use to think and believe, you know all of us grow up a certain way for instance what the churches teaches us. Seeking the truth in my opinion brings you closer to YHWH that is what I love about the assignments you have to dig deep. I do learn a lot not just of myself but of the Character of YHWH. I have studied before but never have I learned so much as these assignments are very hands on, I learn how to see things from a Biblical perspective and it challenges my old way of thinking, which I do not mind as I want YHWH to change me into what He wants me to be, I want my life, my thoughts my way how I walk with Him to Honor HIM on every level. As a Biblical counselor I believe that spending time in prayer and the Word is of the UTMOST importance so that you make sure you hear the right voice. That is what I love of Divine Love Institute for Biblical Counselors is that they encourage time in the word and time with YHWH. Most of the assignments helped me in my personal life especially my relationship with YHWH. Especially the assignment (WHO ARE YOU) I want to mention this. As long as I can remember I walked in this life not knowing where I belong going here and there but after this assignment knowing who I am WOW I cannot even describe in words what has happened inside my heart my mind and spirit, things just changed a lot of things just started to make sense for me. Knowing who I am now puts a lot of things into perspective now more than ever obedience has not become a problem but a necessity for me, I wish I can describe in words but words can never be enough to tell you what this has done for me in my spiritual life :). My granny passed away in March and I had to lead the funeral was it not for what I have learned from Divine Love InstituteM and with the guidance of YWHW I wouldn't have been able to conduct it. I would absolutely recommend anyone seeking the truth to rather go through DLM to become a Biblical Counselor as I know what this has done for me in my daily walk with YHWH. The heart of Divine Love is what draws me. I would recommend anyone as since I enrolled with Divine Love. From Sharon, Tina, Matt, Madelein, everyone has been so nice and so helpful. Sharon answers emails quickly for instance I will send my proof of payment and the day would not even come to an end and I will have my next subject available. Like I mentioned, I have studied through other institutes and Divine Love is different. I know now that YHWH led me to this institution for a reason and I have been blessed every since. We all know that we go through trials and tribulation but knowing that there is people at Divine Love praying for us as students makes it easier. The payment plans is so wonderful as we all know how difficult it has become to study. I cannot wait to see what the future holds in my walk with YHWH and with Divine Love. Thank you all of you for making life a little bit easier. I am blessed beyond words to be a student at Divine Love and PLEASE PLEASE never stop teaching the truth. I cant wait to see what my Diploma has in store for me. I am quite on my nerves about the practical assignment but I do trust the spirit of YHWH to help me in this as I have never counseled anyone. I have walked with a few but have never counseled. My prayer is that YHWH bless each and every student and everyone working at Divine Love Institute.

It has helped me a lot in my spiritual life as I totally was in bad finances, bad marriage all sorts of things and since starting the studies have come out, really out of a ditch of depression and now can speak openly about who God is and how He changed my life. I would love to advise younger people to do this course it can enrich their lives. As it did for me. I can only say good things about the friendly replies I get in my queries.

It has been interesting and I am finding this info useful in my own marriage. But it has also been a bit difficult as counseling is new to me. My reason for doing this course firstly is to grow in my faith and secondly help counsel myself, make improvements in my own life and then in time hopefully help others. I tend to procrastinate and then things take me longer, so as I had hoped to be done with my first assignment by now I am not, which is a bit discouraging. Otherwise I am looking forward to the rest of the course. I would recommend these courses as it encourages individuals to counsel under the guidance of God, and help counselees apply the appropriate Biblical truth to their specific situation.

I thank God(YHWH) for He is always with us. I'm ok with my courses this far. I believe that I'm coping and I understand the content. I'm only slow in typing and at times I spend a lot of time on one question because I want to answer using my own words/understanding. I am planning to speed up and avail more time to my studies. The courses are helpful and I'm learning a lot of things and beginning to see people differently. I recommend Divine Love Institute to those I come in contact with. Continue doing the good work you are doing for God(YHWH) is with you and will bless you always.

I am finding the course very insightful and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it to others. Also, the people from Divine Love, I have spoken t,o are very kind and helpful. I have had a pretty rough year so far and I haven't gotten as far with my studies as I would have liked to, but I will definitely come back to you with some more feedback.

I started the course just for myself but enjoy it extremely. I do not have any difficulties with the assignments or the material. I learn a lot. Not only about myself but about Jesus and other people and situations. I will recommend Divine Love Institute to anybody because you guys was willing to help me with the payment in monthly installments. You also do follow ups with your students and your materials is understandable.

The studies are going excellent. I am currently busy with my third module Counseling Theories and Techniques. It is really interesting. The assignments aren't hard at all..at least not yet. Some questions you have to think over a lot before answering, but that helps me remember it. I do learn a lot from every module and assignment I complete. Some things has helped me in my own life but I know there are modules to come that will help me even more. The module I am currently busy with as well as the previous module (The Scriptures) has helped me a lot to re-evaluate my personal life and relationship with God. It has improved me as a person. I would definitely recommend Divine Love Institute to any one. Studying through you guys is a true blessing!

I am an addiction counselor. I am busy with the Diploma and it is taking a bit longer than I hoped because of time restraints. I do however love every minute of it and find what I learned useful. Before I started with Divine Love Institute, I did a full course in addiction counseling somewhere else, but when it came to actually counselling people I realized that there is so much more that is needed. That was when I started with your certificate course and I can honestly say I would not be able to do what I do without the knowledge I gained from my studies through Divine Love. Thank you for a wonderful course

I don't find the assignments difficult, but it can be a lot of research and reading. I have learned a lot and I can actually say I understand Scripture and can better interpret it now. I have learned to look up all challenges in my life in Scripture for answers. I would definitely recommend Divine Love Institute for Biblical Counselors to everyone. In fact, I have my sister that wants to study with the Institution next year. Because I have learned that meditating on the word, reading the word and studying the word really arms me in this challenging world, and I can actually make a difference in people’s life’s more importantly my own. Study to show myself approved as according to Scripture.

I am currently still busy with the couples counselling. I love reading the scripture and challenging myself and implementing the scriptures to my own life and what I face daily 🙂 I can say the couples counselling is helping within my own marriage. Since the day we got married life has thrown rocks at us and some times it got the point where we started pointing fingers and even worse so working through the couples counselling I got my husband to read the book with me, and to pin point where we felt we needed help, and we have decided to implement most of the stuff in to our own marriage, and its really helping us a lot. I have recommended DL Institute to my sister and her partner , they will be submitting their forms at the end of this month if they have not submitted them already 🙂 they are both very exited to start their studies as well, I must be really honest, when we visit friends or family I tell them all about my studies, I have 2 more people who might possibly join soon. I have a registered non profit our focus is Childhood cancer and spreading awareness, and I am hoping that I would be able to get most of my volunteers to do the course and have some form of counselling back ground 🙂

Met voltooiing van my Meestersgraad: Dankie dit was ’n baie groot voorreg om by julle te kon studeer en ek sal dit werklik aanbeveel. Dit was geweldig verrykend in ’n tyd toe dit met my baie swaar gegaan het fisies. Hierdie studies het my regop en aan die gang gehou en dit was vir my die motivering om deur te druk ten spyte van my liggaam wat op ’n stadium nie meer wou nie, julle is ’n ongelooflike span, dankie vir elke gebed en al die ondersteuning. Spesiale dank aan Matt wat eers my Tutor was en absoluut my eposse getrou geantwoord het en my voortdurend aangemoedig en gemotiveer het. Toe ek my grade gedoen het was ek elke 6 weke gehospitaliseer vir behandeling. Ek het my werk saam geneem en in die hospitaal gedoen en dit was terapie - fisies , sielkundig en geestelik. Ek het baie geleer en vandag kan ek ander help wat deur hierdie situasie worstel. Wat ’n fantastiese klomp mense is julle!!! AS EK KON HET EK NOU HIER DEUR GEKLIM EN JULLE ELKEEN GESOEN EN GEDRUK. Weereens baie dankie!

I have learned a lot so far and I realize now how most of what I’ve been taught in church all my life, was indeed twisted or just plainly, a lie! It’s interesting how, when realizing the truth, everything becomes more peaceful and ‘simple’ in one’s thinking. Most of the time we try too hard to figure things out and this only leads to frustration. Being led by the Holy Spirit changes everything and it affects all our relationships. Isn’t God just awesome!!!!!! Every single assignment has meant a great deal to me and has guided me into a much closer relationship with God and for that, I am so thankful! In many ways I have changed since starting on this road with Divine Love Institute for Biblical Counselors, guided by the truth of the Word, learning to love and trust it. I think the module on Counseling Victims of Sexual Abuse touched and changed me the most. I now have a much better idea of how God wants to use me specifically as both my daughter and I have been victims. God’s truth has set me free and I can’t wait to tell everyone who has been hurt in this way, how to achieve victory over their pain and embrace the unending love of God for them and to learn to trust Him going forward. It’s been a HUGE blessing to me! I would absolutely recommend Divine Love Institute for Biblical Counselors because of the way in which the truth is taught and clarified. That’s a big deal to me, as you can probable see.
