In the beginning

Not only is this story about origins, which is always great to hear how the ball got rolling!
This is an encouragement, affirmation, and a word to speak life into where you are as a counselor. Whether your the friend that everybody comes to with a problem, or in leader ship, or in pastoral care, or you’re a professional with your LPC, this book is written in such a way it encourages you that what you do ripples in a family‘s life story for generations to come. I hope you find this book as informative as I did, as encouraging, and inspires you to continue to try to do things where you’re at to make things better is for others. Don’t give up
