It seems that in due time all things will move to the internet. In 2012 you can play games online, watch TV online, listen to the radio online, read books online, chat online, video conference online, do your taxes online, go grocery shopping online, and even go to church online. As the internet continues to evolve people are also seeking counseling online. You can find a counselor online, chat with a counselor online, or simply e-mail back and forth with a counselor. However, sometimes you just want real, simple, straightforward answers. That’s what this site is about–real answers rooted in the truth of God’s Word.
As a counselor, my clients know that I don’t beat around the bush. Nor do I believe in making the counseling process last as long as possible simply to generate income. Rather, we have an agreement that sin will be confronted head on and any other issues will be addressed as thoroughly and as directly as possible. My plan for this blog is to write about many topics that real people would find useful including marriage, parenting, grief, anger, depression, financial management, addictions, and many more. However, I also invite you to send me your questions. I cannot promise that I will be able to answer them all but yours may be selected as my next blog post.
The Bible teaches that we are to encourage one another and I pray that this site will be an encouragement and a source of hope to you as you seek to carry out God’s plan for your life. May we fulfill Hebrews 10:23-25 which says, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
