Your writings speak to me daily and today?s fit me to the ?T?. I am so guilty of helping others too much instead of letting GOD take care of the person or situation. I feel guilty if I can?t solve their problem. Thank you for your daily inspirations. I enjoy them Immensely.please continue your writings. I know they are touching many.Mary Z.

“Is there any hope for me? Will things ever get better?”
These were questions I asked repeatedly over the past several years. Fatigue, physical disease, financial stressors, and many spiritual battles dominated my life. As a Christian counselor, I thought I was supposed to be full of hope and encouragement. But each day I just tried to make it through so I could crawl into bed and collapse. I was headed to a deep, dark pit, and knew I was desperate for hope. I spent a lot of time praying and studying His Word daily, yet things in my life seemed to get worse.
I knew in my head that God was good and loving, but it seemed my heart and body had taken a beating over the past few years. Doubt and unbelief gained a foothold. Since it truly felt there was no light at the end of my tunnel, I struggled with hopelessness and loss of faith. Where was God?
Desperate and determined to find hope, I started my journey. Fueled by His promises, I walked by faith. With time and perseverance, hope began to surface. I could see it. Once I got a glimpse of hope, I found it everywhere I looked. Hope was just waiting to be found. Without a doubt, I know there is hope for you and me.

A Little About Me…
I am an Ordained Minister and a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor, licensed by the National Christian Counselors Association, License #19354. I have a Ph.D. in Pastoral Counseling from Ministry Institute International in Powell, TN and am a Board Certified Clinical Supervisor with the National Christian Counselors Association with certifications in Cognitive Therapy & Ethics. I am also a Licensed Temperament Therapist
In addition, I have a B.S. in Exercise Physiology from Texas A&M, an M.S. in Kinesiology from TCU, and an M.B.A with an emphasis in management from TWU. I completed 4 years of study in Oriental Medicine receiving a Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine, including acupuncture and Chinese herbology. I was a licensed acupuncturist and Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. (Yes I LOVE school!)
I can testify that having a lot of knowledge does not equip you to live a hope-filled life.
If you want an unshakable hope you must place your hope and faith in Jesus Christ. He is our Living Hope, not some fantastical hope created by Hollywood that changes depending on circumstances or feelings.
I believe HOPE is available for you no matter how dark it seems.
