What people are saying

"Hannah's work is provocative and gripping. She unleashes the leader in all of us! With her crisp appeal to interpreting the word of God for practical living, she transports us to instantly see ourselves in Scripture. Her strategies are detailed perfectly and simply so you grab a hold of them and get right into action. She is a personal encouragement to me, to further the Kindgom of God in the way that he designed me!"

"Dr. Kolehmainen moves the conversation to center stage of what it means to make Jesus Lord of our passions, desires, affections, and sexuality. Her vulnerable storytelling and gentle “bristle alerts” move us to identify and expose where our true affections lie, and call us forward to repentance and powerful restoration."

Hannah's knowledge and commitment to changing lives and leading lives to Christ is phenomenal! She genuinely cares for those she's leading and forms a loving bond with each person she is teaching. She is absolutely one person I want battling this life beside me. Her love for the Savior I can't even express because it is beyond this world and it shows, she demonstrates it in action. I have become a better Jesus lover because of her teaching and prayers.
