For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
In my personal practice, I’ve learned to see the joys of life through traumatic situations by remembering the promise found in Jeremiah 29:11. My desire is to share this joy and encourage others to hold fast to hope. In my writings and when I speak to churches, groups and other organizations, I draw on 20 years of professional experience as a neuropsychologist and over 25 years of marriage and family life offering sound biblical advice on all types of emotional issues.
In today’s culture, many of us face relational, parental, and marital issues that can rob us of joy.
