We are passionate about the critical need for heart change in order to see true life change.

Welcome to Biblical Counseling for Women!

If you’re a long-time visitor, you’ll notice things look a bit different around here, and that’s right – Biblical Counseling for Women just got a whole new makeover! We are so excited to get this ministry page back up and running, with great expectations that it will bring encouragement and hope to each person who comes across the page. Here is a quick word from our founder, Dr. Julie Ganschow:

"Hello friends!

I am so excited for the re-launch of BC4Women! The blogs have a fresh, new face and the topics have been updated to meet the current needs and interests of our community. You’ll find new authors and old familiar ones whose writing you have grown to trust and appreciate. It is my pleasure to unveil the face of our ministry specifically to the women of God. I hope and pray you find help, healing, and hope here!”
– Julie

Everyone has problems from time to time, and sometimes we need a little bit of help to get through the rough spots.

That’s where Biblical Counseling comes in. Biblical Counseling is intensive discipleship. It is seeking deeply after God’s wisdom in His Word to find His solutions to life’s problems.

Here at Biblical Counseling for Women, we seek to encourage you, challenge you, and champion you on in this beautiful journey through our writing. Join us!
