I am extremely passionate about spiritual warfare. I believe it is one aspect that sets the Christian perspective of counseling and psychology apart. I was reading this morning about the betrayal of Christ by Judas Iscariot. It's not something I have honestly taken the time to study or focus on. I could recount the story… Continue reading The real war in marriage
I think that one of the greatest struggles can be a deep feeling of loneliness but be surrounded by people. It almost creates a sense of crazy inside you. You sit by people but have zero connection. It almost makes the ache of loneliness even larger. How can I be near people but feel alone… Continue reading The lonely disconnected life in a room full of people
God cares about life. I think there is something so powerful about Jesus that we overlook. Jesus was God in the flesh. He did not walk around casting people down or listing everyone's sin.

The reality is we do not have the opportunity to walk pass Jesus on the street or sit on the hill while He teaches. We do not get to reach out and touch His hand or… Continue reading God Cares About Your Healing
If you had a friend who had a calcium deficiency would you call them weak? I doubt it. We would encourage the person to go to a doctor to receive the care needed to restore their body.

I love waking up to a new day. Each day brings opportunity and God's mercies. I remember a time in my life when I would dread what the next day held. Each morning began with a sense of defeat. I look back now and I am thankful for where I am now. Many of us… Continue reading Today is a new day… And sometimes the desert.
