Walking Through Grief


Grief is a natural reaction to a significant loss; it's both an emotional and often physical response to losing someone or something that has meaning in one's life. Grief is a process and sometimes a lifelong journey, and at times can be an unpredictable one. Unfortunately, grief is the result of living in a fallen world that has yet to be fully redeemed. God never intended for us to experience grief. When sin entered the world in Genesis 3, grief entered along with it. 

Although many of us may naturally try to avoid it, we will all likely face grief at some point. Maybe it's the loss of a loved one, a job, a house, or a marriage--to name a few. Unfortunately, grief is not uncommon throughout the history of humanity; it is all over the pages of scripture. For example, in the Old Testament, we see the Israelites mourning the loss of Moses (Deut. 34:8). Additionally, we see David, a man after God's own heart grieving through his psalms. In...

Three Tools for Better Communication with Your Spouse

Marriage counseling is an opportunity for couples to gain the skills and understanding necessary to strengthen their bond. While communication may seem straightforward, it can be challenging for some partners. Many come into therapy feeling unheard or misunderstood by one another. If there are gaps in your conversations that you feel prevent a deeper connection with your partner, marriage counseling might help bridge them! It could provide helpful guidance from which you benefit as individuals and as a couple.

I want to summarize three common problems and solutions to communicate better with your spouse. To be current with the slang of my teen sons, these communication tips are LIT.


Someone once said God gave us two ears and one mouth, so we’ll listen twice as much as we speak. Listening is one of the most essential skills of communication, but a skill we rarely do well. When someone else speaks, and you are listening, what are you listening to/for? Some listen for...

Strength to Be Weak

But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. - 2 Corinthians 12:9

Everyone Has Their Own Definition of Strength

It's natural for us to want to be strong and put our best foot forward in the eyes of others. Unfortunately, no one is invincible or able to have it all under control at any given time and this vulnerability can oftentimes lead us to feel weak without end. But there’s a different way we should approach weakness: rather than viewing it as an unfortunate outcome reserved only for those who are “incapable of being independent," think instead that moments of helplessness provide invaluable opportunities; they're chances for growth and understanding ourselves better!

We all experience moments in life when we feel weak and vulnerable, whether it be physical or emotional. We're often hesitant to...

Social Media Reveals the Heart

Social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat, and the like have risen in popularity over the last fifteen years. If we were to keep track of the time we have spent on these sites, many of us would be fairly embarrassed, including me. Personally, as I have scrolled down my feed and have read a number of posts and comments by other believers, I have been sometimes shocked, but mostly saddened by many. Our carefulness, kindness, love, and respect for others – all of which are core components of our Christianity – have taken a back seat, while personal opinions, self-centeredness, fear, and thoughtlessness take center stage. 

While I don’t have numbers to back this statement up, I believe our witness to others is becoming greater with our online presence now than face-to-face. While face-to-face will always be important, people have grown comfortable and careless with an online presence, often expressing more than they ought. But...

Benefits of Online Counseling

In a world where technology is ever-evolving and more people are turning to online services for their needs, online counseling has become an increasingly popular option. Online counseling offers many benefits that traditional counseling may not provide, such as convenience, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and added privacy. Let’s take a closer look at why online counseling is becoming such an attractive option for clients everywhere. 

Convenience & Flexibility 

Virtual counseling provides the ultimate convenience and flexibility for clients seeking help with mental health. Instead of having to leave the house or office to meet with a counselor, clients can simply log on from the comfort of their own homes. This makes it much easier for those who have busy lives or may feel uncomfortable meeting in person (at least initially). Additionally, online counselors often offer sessions outside of normal business hours so that you can find a time that works best for...
