This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord. Psalms 118:17

Dear Pastors, Church Leaders, Women in Ministry, Clergy Wives, and my Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

In this 21st Century, It has been my interest and passion to address some of the social ills that plague our society as a whole: emotional, mental, psychological, and spiritual abuse. Additionally, it is my hope to offer principles for coping effectively by presenting a plan for creating a healthy balance in the home and in ministry.

I would like to introduce a vital aspect of ministry to the Body of Christ designed to empower, liberate and transform lives within the scope of your unique ministry into a new dimension entitled,

Living, Learning and Growing Counseling Initiative

God has impressed upon me to present to the Body of Christ a plan and strategy to empower pastors, leaders and constituents to the necessity of living the quality of life that God intended for His people.

This new dimension will focus its attention on a track system designed to empower leadership, family life and authenticate Christian believers to thrive for excellence.

As a Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist for 21 years and seminary trained, I have noticed throughout my religious and Christian experience of 50 years, how essential, effective counseling skill would, not only, enhance your ministry, but the benefits you would receive for the congregation you serve would be life changing. Counseling not only transforms lives, but operates as a catalyst and a teaching tool useful in both individuals and group settings.

Historically, the church has always been the catalyst in the church community that addresses those paralyzing forces, in order to bring hope, faith and social mobility in your indigenous community. In order to discuss the Christian faith and salvation, one must consider the church as the critical force and the most viable energy in the life and survival of God's people, globally.

God is concerned about you: Emotionally, Psychologically, Mentally, Spiritually, Financially, and Socially. God is concerned about our day to day transitions and how He can transform our disconnectedness into Spiritual and Emotional Wholeness. "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Enjoy and Be Blessed!

Yours because of Calvary,
