Several years ago Dr. Kerry Skinner had come to our church to teach us biblical principles in the book “The Heart of the Problem.”  I have since used it as a tool to counsel a few people that have sought my advice.  I recently witnessed God’s incredible healing power by helping someone find truth in His Word, in the midst of crisis, applying those principles.  Seeing victory in that situation convinced me there is an opportunity to help others in this way. I am exceedingly grateful to Dr. Skinner for following God’s leading to provide training for such a great need and I am beyond blessed to study and be equipped through the Think LifeChange Institute of Biblical Counseling to become a Certified Biblical Counselor.  I pray God richly blesses this ministry and all who are touched by it.

Distinction of Biblical Counseling

Some people believe that if you are a Christian and think, you have Christian thinking! In the same way, some believe if you are a Christian and you counsel, you are providing biblical counseling. But that is not necessarily so. To have biblical counseling requires a standard to be used. The standard is not determined by the person doing the counseling but rather is the use of God’s Word—The Bible that determines if one is practicing biblical counseling.
