Masters Degree: Counseling, Expected in May 2015
SWBTS - Fort Worth , TX

Counseling in a biblical manner in order to view and succeed with true heart change. "Mark 7 reads is short that the heart of the problem is the problem of the heart." How very true this is as we read Proverbs 4:23 when it again reads, "Guard over your heart with with all diligence for from it flow it the issues of life." I do love counseling but at this time I cannot make a living with it; so, if I must go back to work, I would like to go to work with people that I know have a relationship with the Lord. I find it much better to work with believers than that of unbelievers. Please don't misunderstand me, am not drawing back from the enemy, I would siimply like to see men and women who have a standard of life that is pleasing to the Lord.
