About This Site

wisdom from heaven

Welcome to our site where we share the wisdom that comes from above – God’s Word which we can study in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament – in a creative visual way.

We are all creative because God is the Creator and He created us in the image of Him.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

When we create, we please God, serve and glorify Him because it’s a reflection of the image of God.

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

Our teaching is not affiliated with any church, Christian denomination or organization. It is based on God’s Word, the Bible.


About The Author

janet giessl

My name is Janet Giessl. I’m a servant of Jesus Christ (Scribal Prophet and Teacher), wife, mom, teacher, artist, and author.

I was born and raised as a Christian but struggled along my spiritual journey because I had a distracted heart and got curious in learning about so-called New Age teachings for quite some time.

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. Titus 3:3

Fortunately, one day Jesus Christ appeared in my dreams and He saved me. I found salvation. I received a spiritual renewal and became a born-again Christian.

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7

I’m so grateful for Jesus saved me and I’m walking with God again.

who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, 2 Timothy 1:9 


Personal Faith Journey

My faith journey in childhood/adolescence

My faith journey is quite a roller coaster ride. I was born and raised as a Catholic since my parents were both Catholics. Until I became an adolescent, I had been practicing the Catholic belief and been active in the Catholic Church. When I was about 13 or 14, I was introduced to the Protestant belief by my best friend and I was totally astonished by the differences between both denominations.

While I was still a Catholic, I also went to the Protestant Church from time to time and got active there. Though the Protestant Church accepted me being a Catholic, I knew it was wrong according to the Catholic Church.

My faith journey as an adult

Then a time of withdrawing from both churches followed for many years. I only attended church occasionally and I didn’t read the Bible. I believed in God and in Jesus Christ but I had no relationship with God. I was not walking with God.

When I met my husband who was baptized as a Georgian Orthodox, I left both the Catholic and the Protestant Church and agreed to get baptized in the Georgian Orthodox Church so we could marry in an Orthodox Church. Though I was baptized in a Georgian Orthodox Church, I have never been able to identify myself with this denomination. I lived many years as a lukewarm Christian.

My two-year experience with New Age/Occultism

Being a lukewarm Christian, however, left me unsatisfied and grew in me a hunger to find the truth. Since I wasn’t saved back then, Satan took advantage of my hunger and led me on a path that was dangerous and wrong. For two years starting in 2017, I dabbled in the New Age movement and occult practices like astrology, tarot, yoga, qi gong, shamanism, numerology, chakras, aura, starseeds, earth angels, etc.,

My salvation

Then Jesus appeared in my dreams and saved me. I became a born-again Christian (not a lukewarm Christian anymore) in 2019. Now when I look back at my time in the New Age and occult, I really feel ashamed because this was the time where I got deceived by Satan and was gradually moving away from God. I’m so glad and grateful that Jesus, who appeared one night in a dream and pointed me to the Bible, saved me by His grace and I believed that He died for our sins on the cross and resurrected to save us from eternal death which is the penalty for our sins. I believe and trust in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I love the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind, and all my strength. Mark 12:30

Studying at Christian Leader’s Institute

After my salvation I started to look for Bible Schools online where I could study. Since my financial situation hasn’t allowed me to pay for a Bible School, God led me to the Christian Leader’s Insitute one day. I couldn’t believe that they offered Bible School and Ministry Classes for free and that those who had the money could pay for the studies of other students. I’m so grateful for and impressed by this generosity-driven model of CLI because it allows people who don’t have the financial means to study the Word of God and become Christian Leaders. Praise the Lord and thank Him for having led the founders of CLI to create this amazing generosity-driven ministry. May their ministry and life be blessed forever. I hope and pray to get the financial means to give back because “‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35

I started to study ministry at Christian Leaders Institute because I wanted to strengthen my faith and knowledge of God’s Word and share the Gospel and I felt called to go where God directed me to. After taking several really eye-opening and life-changing CLI classes, I got interested in taking the Life Coaching Ministry Class and becoming a certified Life Coach Minister. As a teacher I come across many people young and old who are suffering in their life because they haven’t found their God-given calling and purpose yet. Some are deceived because they follow false unbiblical teachings like I used to follow before I got saved. I feel that being a Life Coach Minister equips me fully to help people find the life, calling, and purpose God has given them and to overcome their struggles in life. It is a great complement to my teaching and prophetic gift. I’m continuing my studies at Christian Leaders Institute as a lifelong student.

My own ministry

After a time of growing in faith, studying the Bible, growing in my relationship with the Lord, growing in my spiritual gifts, God called me and anointed me as a scribal prophet and teacher to spread His Word and share the truth with others, so that many people could also be saved as He saved me. The Holy Spirit inspired me to create this website with the name “Wisdom From Heaven”. Since I’m a creative person, He encouraged me to combine God’s Word with my creativity. For this reason, my Bible Teaching contains downloadable creative visuals and printables apart from writing. I hope to support and encourage you in your Bible Study and Christian Faith Journey.
