Counselors Corner


Biblical counseling reflects the Scriptures at every point (major and minor). That means that every bit of advice you get from your counselor should have solid biblical support. At any point in the process, you have the right to stop and ask him to explain the biblical basis for his counsel.

Loving Others

Written by Pamela Boswell, Eastwood Counseling Center

Jesus broke all the law down to--

love God and love others.

On our own, we could not--so He

did it for us.

We love Him because He loved us. We can love others because of His love for us.



“We love because he first loved us.”

1 John 4:19

Have you ever stopped to consider that were it not for the Bible, you wouldn’t be able to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ?  Think about it: If it weren’t for God’s written revelation of Himself to man, you simply would not be able to know how to become a Christian.  To the extent that He revealed Himself to you through the Bible, you are able to have an intimate relationship with Him.  Had He not revealed Himself to you, you would not be able to relate to Him as a son/daughter.  Revelation, therefore, is a prerequisite for having a relationship.  This is true not only of your relationship with God, but also with people.

What’s in a Name?

Written by Pamela Boswell, Eastwood Counseling Center


Who named you? For whom are you named? What does your name mean? Do you have a nickname? What do those who know you best call you? In getting to know people, one of the first things we do is learn their name and tell them ours. That is exactly what God does in the Bible. He reveals His names as well as His character so that we might know Him better.

How much Resurrection Power is there residing in the battery of your soul?  Is it six volts of Holy Spirit power, nine volts, or is it 12?  Perhaps you have 120 volts, or even 240 volts.  Please allow me to give you eight clues that will help you do a quick evaluation of your power level:

Wives, Do You Pray?

Written by Brenda Payne, Eastwood Counseling Center

“If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”

Eat All You Want

Written by Pamela Boswell, Eastwood Counseling Center

Are you hungry? Have you tried ‘munching’ on several things but just don’t seem satisfied? Do you find yourself stopping and reading ads that say “eat all you want and still lose weight?” Maybe it’s not your body that’s starving; maybe it’s your soul. “For He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul He fills with good things” (Psalm 107:9).

Good News!

Written by Lou Priolo, Eastwood Counseling Center


Many people believe that getting to heaven is accomplished by doing good things and relatively few bad things. The truth is, however, that even one sin is enough to keep you out of heaven. It really doesn’t matter how much good you do, any sin—regardless of how great or small—is enough to keep you out of heaven and send you straight to hell.

Quit Complaining!

Written by Brenda Payne, Eastwood Counseling Center

The text for my devotional was very familiar. In fact, I had taught it to my children as soon as they were old enough to protest. We even memorized the verse with the aid of a catchy tune by Steve Green. Philippians 2:14-16 says, “Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.”

It is often said that it is love that makes the world go round. But love is only one of many emotions that can lead us into action. For example, fear, anger, delight and sorrow can be powerful motivating emotions as well. Rarely do people come to counseling unless they are troubled by a powerful emotion.
