Therapist, Spiritual Director
Sungshim Loppnow is a marriage and family therapist and a spiritual director. Her passion is to help people cultivate a deep, authentic and life-giving relationship with God. She is especially called to support leaders to live out Jesus’ new commandment (John 13:34) in their marriage, parenting, family and friendships. Her background in the study of Christian Education equipped her with the skills to develop simple tools like Immanuel Journaling (IJ) in 2011. IJ was introduced in the book, Joyful Journey in 2015 and has helped many people into a profound experience with God’s love. She has been teaching Life Model concepts and training others in Immanuel Journaling in homes, churches and parachurch organizations internationally. She and her husband John have been running an Immanuel Journaling Practice every Monday in La Crescenta, CA. This is their laboratory to deepen their practice of brain skills and the Immanuel Lifestyle. John & Sungshim have two children, Zachariah (11) and Zoe (9).
