It is highly likely if you don’t have indirect behavior, somebody in your world does. I see it show up many times in various forms of relationship. One person assumes the other knows what they want because they are thinking it. The other person has no clue what is wanted since what is wanted has…

The BIBLE

By Daniel Sirstad | June 2, 2018

One of the songs I learned growing up in Sunday school was “The BIBLE.” It goes like this: “The BIBLE, yes that’s the Book for me. I stand upon the Word of God, the BIBLE.” When we sang the word “BIBLE,” we would spell it out. It was great fun. The Psalmist had much to…

By Daniel Sirstad | April 7, 2018

The ministry of forgiveness is an absolute essential in the experience of every successful marriage. Paul wrote in Ephesians 4:32, “And be ye kind one to another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” When a man and woman live as intimately as a husband and wife live, there are going to be…

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!
