Healing Hurts (Part 2 of 2) Most people would prefer a solution to their conflict, but since that requires ‘rocking the boat’ many learn to live with the conflict. Historians tell us the ‘Cold War’ ended in the 1980s. However, within the walls of many Christian marriages today, there is a cold war brewing. It’s…

Healing Hurts

Healing Hurts (part 1 of 2) Healing hurts! On June 11, 2020, my body celebrated 58 years of breathing on my own. In all that time, no surgeon had cut into me. Seven days later, I stared into the eyes of my anesthesiologist, asking for verification of her intention to wake me up in a…

Affected or Infected?

By Daniel Sirstad | July 4, 2020

Are you affected or infected? There is a difference between being affected and infected. I think it is safe to say all of us have been affected by Covid-19, but the virus has not infected most of us. To affect means to influence or alter. Each day we affect and are affected; we influence and…

Within his speech, he uttered these words: “So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed…

Client Testimonials

Since this month is pastor appreciation, I wanted to let you know I appreciate your counsel. I realize you are not my pastor but I felt this was an appropriate time to show my appreciation.

Looking back, I can see how fragile and confused I was when I made the first call. I had difficulty even making the call. To be truthful, I was very apprehensive about starting counseling. By the second session, I knew I had made the right choice. In the midst of the most difficult year of my life, I feel I have grown emotionally and spiritually. I have more understanding about whom I am and a deeper relationship with God.

Thank you for providing Godly counsel and taking the time to help a broken individual sort though all kinds of emotions, so healing could take place.

I just wanted to take the time to say… Thank you!
