Are there struggles that you or the people you love can’t seem to get past?
Are there any hurts or parts of your life that you’re afraid you just aren’t ever going to recover from?
I deeply understand.
The difficult journey my family and I have walked through over the past few years isn’t one I ever would have purposefully chosen for us. But God has been showing me that He truly can use ALL things for good.
And where I know the enemy hoped he could silence me, I have ended up more determined than ever to help those in the fight of their lives to cling to Biblical Truth and hope. That’s why I am so thankful to have teamed up with my personal, professional counselors Michael Cusick and Jim Cress along with my friend and director of theology at Proverbs 31 Ministries Joel Muddamalle to create the episodes in the “Therapy & Theology” podcast series.
If you’re stuck in a place of feeling like you’ll never get over the hurt you’re facing or get past your struggles, we would love to help you recognize small steps you can start taking today to see some of the changes you’ve been waiting for.
For this series, we’ve combined helpful therapy and important theology to help you navigate your challening relationships and circumstances. We’ve recently covered topics such as pornography, trust issues, healing from infidelity, narcissism, and anxiety.
