Fundamental Principles of Counseling

Written by Nancy Thomas


I have been reminded about the TV show Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood and the kindness, love and safety it modeled. As licensed counselors and faith informed counselors, we hope to provide a safe place to explore our hurts, needs, and disappointments where one will find love, acceptance and compassion informed by the Holy Spirit.

More Words

Written by Bob Crittendon

In Matthew 12:35-37, Jesus challenges us to make good use of the words we speak: “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (NKJV)

The Buddy System

Written by Sam Whatley

Last September I sat under a large oak tree and read a book. I usually find it relax- ing to get out in nature. I did not know that a life-and-death struggle was about to unfold in the limbs above my head. The leaves were falling, the birds were chirping, and suddenly a hawk swooped down onto a dove.

The Power of a Praying Woman

Written by Kemi Searcy

Prayer from a sincere heart through the name of Jesus has immense power, de- spite who does the praying: male, female, young, or old.  Yet there is something absolutely unique about the prayer of a woman. It is powerful, backed by heaven, and produces quality results each time.


If you have not been praying, begin by making a daily practice of it. It will change your life and the lives of others around you. Prayer is an act of obedience to God.

The Only Hope for America

Written by Daniel Atkins

As a father of three kids, I often catch myself worry-ing about the kind of world my kids are growing up in.  We are seeing our nation collapse on itself.  Morally, spiritually, and economically, our nation is in a mess. People are being murdered in our streets and the racial and political divide is wors-ening by the day.

Book Reviews

  • Like the Shepherd by Robert Wolgemuth

    The great challenge in marriage is not to love our wives more but to love ourselves less, for it is self-love that generates so much of the strife we experience. To be successful husbands we must continually put to death within us whatever causes us to prioritize ourselves, our own interests, our own comfort, our own good. To do this successfully we need counsel, we need men who can make us aware of our self-love and who can provide examples of selflessness.

Faith at Work

  • Judah and Samantha Helms

    RRJ:  You both had exposure to Jesus and His church as children, but you were still left wanting more.  What would you two say were the ingredients for your powerless (ho-hum) Christianity?

     

    Judah: Growing up in the South, I identified with Christianity as a part of my culture. Going to church was expected of you, just like it was expected that you be an obedient child and make good grades. For me, falling in line with those cultural expectations was my lone incentive to be a Christian. I didn’t want to be an outcast or generate any controversy around myself. So I became the “good Christian boy” that my family could be proud of. But in the end, that is a very disingenuous lifestyle that isn’t sustainable.
